For years the Home Improvement Guru has been left out of the Solar Energy World because highly trained professionals were really the only ones that had knowledge and know-how for sizing, designing, and installing Solar Energy Systems, but with the current state of the Solar Energy Market and explosion in interest in Solar Energy, the Do-It-Yourselfer now has access to a wealth of information, guides, schematics, and designs that can be revised and adapted to fit their own home Solar Energy project. DIY Solar Guide is proud to bring much of that information together in one place where readers, and doers alike, can come, educate themselves about Solar Energy, and implement a Solar Solution in their lives that can save them money, help clean up the environment.

That is the purpose of DIY Solar Guide; to allow those people across the world who are as passionate about Solar Energy as we are, a place to come, educate themselves and their families, and find out how to do what the professionals do, for a fraction of the cost.

Come on inside. We’re sure we have something that will interest you.
