Default Cool your Solar panels

I like the ease of construction and low investment dollar of this PV panel cooling idea, 10% gains in power production can be incurred by cooling off those sun baking panels.
If one was so inclined he could recycle or use the run off hot water.

I suspect you could build this cooler for about $100 and gain 10% in your arrays summer hot days output.
