1. A method of making a curved solar panel for an automobile, comprising the steps of:

  • heating a glass sheet;

    coating a transparent electroconductive film on one side of said glass sheet;

    heating and bending the coated glass sheet so as to make the coated surface concave while limiting the rise of the resistance value of said transparent electroconductive film;

    forming a photoelectric conversion layer on said transparent electroconductive film on the concave surface of the glass sheet;

    forming a back electrode on said photoelectric conversion layer so that electricity can be taken out between said transparent electroconductive film and the back electrode;

    forming a protective layer on the photoelectric conversion layer which faces the inside of said automobile.
