Are there types of solar panels that can be made completely locally and independent of fossil fuels?

I want to know if there are any kinds of solar panels that can be produced completely locally, from gathering materials to manufacturing to installing, without fossil fuel inputs anywhere in the process. Are there any kinds of electricity-generating solar panels that meet these requirements? Any references to people who have tried to do this would be appreciated. All the DIY references I’ve found still require buying components that are dependent on fossil fuel-driven manufacturing and mining processes. Thanks!
