You don’t need a DIY solar panel system kit to go 100% solar power. After two years of work today I threw the switch and went 100% off grid with solar power. It really works! What is surprising is it cost less and was easier to do than expected. That being said I had a lot of help from Al YouTube.com I will break down all the components the reason behind why I bought these items, the cost, wiring and how I installed the system. As of right now, if the power goes off today, we’ll have lights tonight.

Most homeowner’s who invest in a home solar panel system do it because they don’t want to rely on the power company. The cost the power company charges keeps going up. In some areas across the nation this cost has increased tremendously. And although the main purpose for those installing a home solar panel system is to free themselves from these companies they also have a desire to help the environment by using a clean energy reducing the use of fossil fuels that are depleting more rapidly than we think.
A home solar panel system consists of framed solar cells that are used to absorb the sun’s rays. These panels turn the sun’s rays into dc energy and with the use of a converter the dc power can then be turned into ac electricity. It’s the ac current we use to operate any of our electrical appliances, furnaces, lights, and so on. The dc power can be stored in deep cell batteries and with a converter can be used to operate smaller lamps, radios, and so forth. This can be helpful when power is out and a generator is not an option.
There are tax credits and rebates for a residential home solar panel system. Some of these options require them to be professionally installed, which is advisable. There are however, do-it-yourself videos available through the internet for those who choose to install them themselves. Home solar panel systems are not that expensive, their cost is actually lowering, the installation of these systems is the expensive part. This deters individuals who aren’t familiar with electricity to do it themselves and is the most common reason people don’t go solar.
There are a large number of professional installers that will put a home solar panel system in for you. If it is a solar panel company you’re looking for, it is recommended that you check credentials, reviews, and other pertinent information before making your choice. As with any type of business, there are those who aren’t what they claim to be. Many companies will have right on their web site customer reviews and these can be very helpful.
Society today is more and more concerned with the environment, saving money, and saving our fossil fuel supply. A good way to do all of these at the same time is to install a home solar panel system. Our fossil fuel supply is not an unlimited resource but the sun is going to be around indefinitely. Even with their possible high cost, home solar panel systems will pay for themselves in no time by their non maintenance and savings from your electric or gas bill. These panels require very little if any maintenance. This is just another added benefit that most don’t stop to think about. And one more benefit to mention is that a lot of the utility companies are required to purchase, from homeowners and businesses, additional absorbed and stored energy. This means by having a home solar panel system installed in your home, the utility company may be purchasing energy from you.
