» MAKE: AMENDS Errata for This Article
Correction for page 100
NOTE: If your solar tracker doesn't track the sun accurately, the solar cell may be receiving too much reflected light from low clouds, brightly painted walls, or other nearby surroundings. Try painting the shade black underneath, and/or taping over unneeded portions of the solar cell.
