Going Solar

Going Solar can be a very daunting undertaking. There are so many choices. There are so many products. There are so many different things that you can do. There is so much jumbled, incomplete, and wrong information available all over the internet. Thankfully, DIY Solar Guide is here to help you start Going Solar.

When deciding to go solar, there are a few steps that we think will be critical in helping you move in the right direction, get the information that you need, and make an informed, well-thought out decision of which products you need to purchase, and how to incorporate them into your current home or office.

First, you should read our Getting Started Section which provides much of the first steps of learning about Solar Energy, determining which Solar Energy Systems are appropriate for you, and how to go about making those informed decisions.

Another great resource for getting started is our DIY Solar Site Survey which gives you step by step instructions on how to perform a site survey of your home or office to make sure that there are enough Solar Resources at your location. If you are thinking of Going Solar, a site survey is a must…before you invest a large amount of money in a Solar System, you should know for sure that you have the solar resources to make such a system efficient and profitable for maximum return on investment.

We also recommend that you take a look at our FAQ Section which covers many of the most commonly asked questions that our customers generally have on their mind, and what the answer to those questions are. This is a great resource for anyone who has a number of questions about what Solar Energy can do for them, and how to go about getting their Solar Energy System sized, purchased, installed, and up and running.

Another great piece of information for Solar Energy System Owners (new, old, or future) are the different typical Solar Energy System Setups that have been used for years and years by customers all around the world. These setups show the major components of many different types of Solar Energy Systems, how the systems are laid out, and what the new owner is getting into. Here are some Common System Setups:
