MAKING 50 WATT BULB FROM 2 LITER BOTTLE - ADVANCED CHEAPEST SOLAR ENERGY HARVESTER

           Reading the title most of may think that this is a geek's corner. Actually making a 50 watts bulb from a  2 liter soda plastic bottle doesn't really need a bit of the technical knowledge in any stream. All it needs is just a 2 liter bottle(plastic or glass, plastic bottles are highly recommended while concerning safety), 2 lids full of bleach and a camera film dispenser. If you have all these then you are ready to do solar energy harvesting and you are going to build the cheapest solar energy harvester.

WATER BOTTLE'S(CHOOSE 2 LITER BOTTLE)



   Start building the harvester by filling the 2 liter bottle with water and two lids full of bleach. Now close the bottle and close the lid with camera film dispenser for protection of lid. That's it now you made a solar energy harvester which produces light energy equivalent to 50 watts bulb. No complex procedures, no costly items required and finally to technical knowledge required. But to fit this light in your home you need a hole on your roof where this 2 liter bottle can fit with 20% of bottle from lid side should be outside the roof. Also the other disadvantage of this method is you can't store the light energy in battery during day time and use that at night time as in conventional solar panel's method.


            This method also has no maintenance problems with last longing plastic bottles.
    
            Here is a video showing how much light can be produced from this method which will surprise every one of you. Surely after seeing this video you will try to make one.
