    solar heating AGP

    I just had a 4x20 solar panel hooked up and it's laying flat on the ground. I'd like to angle it towards the south for more direct sun. Any ideas on how to build a rack? wondering if I could use PVC?

    You can use PVC but it'll warp in the sun. Several people on here have posted their frames. Most are made of wood. Search for solar panel frame using the Google search at the bottom of the page.
