Today, solar energy is great option for those who would like to save money on their monthly energy bills. A family can build small solar panels to power a section of their house, or they can build a more extensive solar panel system and eliminate their costly energy bills.
If someone wants to begin living off of solar energy, he or she can either spend thousands on a professionally installed system, or choose to build their own. I believe that building your own solar panels is a viable option, and totally possible for anyone who is willing to spend $ 200 and dedicate a weekend to constructing their solar panels
For those interested in DIY solar panels, there are a few things you need to keep in mind:
* You’re probably going to need a good DIY solar panel guide
* You need a complete parts list
* You must have access to the necessary tools
* Be ready to put in some work!
Building solar panels can be tricky, especially if you have no experience. That is why it is crucial to start out right, with a thorough DIY solar panel manual. There are a lot of manuals and guides online to choose from, and some are definitely better than others. You want a guide that has a complete DIY solar panel system manual, a parts list, a money-back guarantee, and training videos. Some offer other bonuses as well, like how to build a windmill or make biodiesel, but you may or may not care about those.
Of course, if you have experience constructing solar panels or know someone who does, I would not worry about buying a guide. However, if you do plan to purchase a guide, I would check out Green DIY Energy; I have reviewed many DIY guides and Green DIY Energy is my top choice. Earth 4 Energy and Power 4 Home are also good choices.
I like Green DIY Energy the most because it is the most thorough guide, in my opinion. You get access to manuals for constructing a solar power system and a windmill system, a complete parts list, and two hours of “how-to” training videos on the more technical aspects of creating your solar panels.
Another thing I liked was the step-by-step example the Green DIY people gave about how they created a solar panel system for $ 98. They did that by using used parts or broken parts which needed a little bit of repair work before being implemented into their system. However, if you don’t want to go through that extra work, you can expect to spend a little under $ 200 buying the needed parts (all new parts) for your DIY solar power system, which is still really cheap.
So that is my two cents on DIY solar panels and DIY guides. I hope you found the info helpful and good luck on your DIY projects! I guarantee you are going to be happy with your solar panels. Have a great time building, get the whole family involved!
