Workshop: Installation of a small-scale solar electricity generation system

Currently we are having a boom of TSUKU-local (ツクろーかる) members who are
installing their own small-scale solar power generation systems. It is
possible to generate part of your daily electricity by yourself by
buying the components and installing a photovoltaic system. This time,
one member will set up a new system and we would like to do this as a
demonstration event.

After about one and half an hour of installation work, we want to sit
around a bonfire and hear the stories of members who are already using
a small-scale solar system at home.

【Why using a small-scale solar system? 】
You can build it yourself and understand the mechanism and repair or
enlarging the system in the future.
* Low cost
A small system costs about 50.000yen. Depending on your objective, you
can choose the appropriate parts.
* Compact
You can install it on your balcony or garden, or it can also be moveable too.
A photovoltaic system for the purpose of selling the electricity
usually has a large power output of several kW and is an expensive
investment which you need to ask professionals to get installated.
Here, we want to put together a DIY system. By assembling a
small-scale photovoltaic system ourselves, we can choose the
appropriate design for your needs, understand the system and therefore
will be able to maintain or change the system in the future. As an
emergency power source it can also provide a backup electricity
