It would be fairly easy to make a homemade shallow box to mount to the back of the PV panel. Each panel would need its own intake vent/hole , sharing a single inline fan for pulling air threw them. A big array, 2,000,3,000 or 4,000w or better would make for a serious heater. A smaller amount of PV panels could act as a pre warmer for the Solar collectors.

I am going to explore this avenue.
