A reddish pattern will form as the copper heats up. The copper will have a black coating as it gets hotter; replacing the red and orange colors. As the copper will completely lost any trace of color, cook it up for about 30 minutes. After thirty minutes, turn off the burner and let the copper cool slowly. The black oxide will fall off the copper.
Scrub the cooled copper under running water to help remove the formed oxide. Wash it carefully so as not to remove the red cuprous oxide that has been created while burning it. You should now cut another piece of copper with the same size and clip it on a jar, adjacent to each other. Take note to place the coppers without touching each other.
The positive terminal of the meter should be connected to the clean copper and the negative terminal should be connected to the cuprous oxide copper. Mix water and salt—dissolving the salt in hot tap water, enough to make it the cover the bottom of copper plates, but avoiding the clips to becoming wet. Then place your homemade solar panels under the heat of the sun and see the meter jump, which will reflect the current it gets from the sun.
