Jameco offers the following solar products:
Parallax Solar PanelsIdeal for rechargeable outdoor lighting or solar powered data logger projects, the small and easy-to-use 1-Watt Solar Panel provides a maximum output of 9VDC in direct sunlight. Parallax also offers panels that provide 6VDC in direct sunlight at up to 1W and 18VDC in direct sunlight at up to 10W for your next solar-powered project. These panels can be chained in serial and/or parallel to expand voltage/current and come with pre-soldered color-coded leads.
If you want to create your own green energy system, the 30-Watt Solar Panel Kit has everything you need to produce a substantial amount of electrical power. A true kit, you construct the solar panel from raw materials that include a pack of solar cells, flux pen, cell tabbing wire, adhesive backed flat copper bus-bar wire, plywood "cell workbenches" and polycarbonate base, cover panels and cement. The energy produced per square foot from the completed kit is comparable to many commercially available solar panels.

Velleman Mini-Panel Solar CellsThese encapsulated mini-panels use solar cells and are secured in a plastic body with a prismatic cover to help capture all available light. Ready to use without soldering, they come with 6" red and black lead wires and can be connected in series or parallel to create different outputs. Unlike fragile solar cells, these mini-panels allow for handling without normal breakage and cell damage.
