Waste becomes a major problem, especially electronic waste, which is hard to decompose and often causes environmental problems. One of the electronic wastes that can still be used as a simple solar panel material is DVD. This material can absorb solar heat energy. So, this study aims to explore unused DVDs (Digital Versatile Discs) as an alternative material for solar panels (monocrystalline). The research method was through experimentation based on literature review/literature study, direct practice, and product-based. The research results are that a series of arranged DVDs produced high electric power. It is also in line with Ohm's law theory. High electric power production is suitable for manufacturing simple solar panels (PASSUS) used as insect-repellent devices on the field.
