Don’t think that you can take this PDF How to Build Your Own Solar Cell and cheaply power your home.  This is a chemistry project to explain how it works.

That being said, it is pretty cool to dye glass with berry juice and get measurable electric current from something you did yourself.  I think this is a great weekend project with your kids.  Or even something to do for YouTube.  However, as I said earlier, it is not practical at scale.

Especially since this seems to be part of a kit.  You need special glass to make this work.  At the time I got this PDF I had not tried to see if I could contact the inventor to see the availability of the kit components.

I figure that this pdf gives enough information that a motivated individual could figure out how to get a kit.  Or, to recreate it in they truly wanted to learn how to build their own solar cell.

While I have my fair share of solar cells and solar power is a part of my disaster and retirement plans.  I feel reducing the need for electricity in general as well as using water for heating and cooking directly is more efficient.
