This presentation is actually somewhat deceiving and sounds like “building your own computer”. Manufacturing solar cells is an interesting but complex activity utilizing a form of silicon and can be compared to the process of making an Intel Processor.

This is not something you will DIY in your garage or backyard. But I tell you that making a “solar panel” is more like “building a computer”. Pre-manufactured components like a processor are combined with a custom ready-to-install hard drive and so on.
