Solar Panel Mirror Booster 30% increase in power output with mirrors

This video is a rough version of a concept using broken mirrors to boost the power output of a regular PV panel. Monocrystalline Solar. The Mirrors covered this panel equalling about a 2x factor total. This method done correctly can increase PV output by up to 50% but you risk overheating the cells. I suggest using one mirror maximum and do it for fun. If you need more power, get more panels. Doubling the sunlight adds 25% more power. It is not a 1 to 1 ratio. CPV chips are totally different. They are more expensive per watt than regular PV after price factoring the tracking device, dish construction, cooling unit. This panel was $199 with Free Shipping. SOLD OUT FOR NOW. My experience. Panels deliver the power they claim in a perfect world. Real world, expect 20% loss in conversion, heat, batteries, wiring. So 80 watts = about 64 watts with perfect sun and perfect wiring.
