It is important that the sheet fits the burner perfectly. This will ensure that the entire burner will be able to heat the entire sheet. Heat the sheet for about 30 minutes, or until the cupric oxide forms.

  3. Prepare another copper sheet. Cut it in a similar shape with the first sheet and clip it on the jar together with the first sheet.

  4. Prepare the glass or plastic jar. Using the clips, attach the copper sheets on the jar. Put the sheets inside the jar. They should not be touching each other and each sheet should follow the shape of the container. Pour water and salt solution once the sheets are in place. The water should only be touching the bottom of the sheets.

  5. Collect solar power. Place the panel under the heat of the sun. To see if it is collecting energy, attach a power meter.

Using the solar energy is helpful in improving the current state of our environment, as this is environmentally friendly. However, solar panels used to generate solar panels are expensive.
