Solar Panels Are More Affordable That Ever Before
If you have been contemplating to install solar panels to off grid or partially convert to natural solar energy, you might be concerned about the real cost of solar energy. Well, you may be relieved to know that going solar DOES NOT cost a fortune and is far LESS than many believe.
Basic Cost Details
The current look at the cost of professional installation of solar panels may look to be out of most people’s budget. Though it really does cost over $25,000 for a professional installation of pre fabricated solar panels, but you don’t have to buy that!
Yes! The good news is you can assemble the panels on your own, even if you are not a great handyman- construct, assemble and install the home solar panels at less than 1/8th the cost of the professional panels.
We found out that solar panels built by homeowners truly cost as low as $98-$200 and that is way less than even the lowest professional bid. And by converting to solar power, you ACTUALLY save as much as $1000-$2000 on your annual electric bill. You can’t say no to solar power!
So, you are no thinking…hmm…$98? Is it really true? Well, yes, it is absolutely true.
The diodes and solar cells that are needed to build the panels can be easily found on eBay and there are over a thousand listings to pick your stuff from. The other items that are required can be found in the local hardware stores.
You will need more than one solar power panel to produce partial amount of energy and the number of panels would depend upon your energy requirements and how much you want to save on your utility electric bill. It may seem that an engineering degree is essential to build the solar panel, but believe me, it is not a time consuming or complicated process. Just assign a day to gather the supplies, another day to build and just one more day to install!
All that is required are three days of your time to get the whole solar power unit up and working to be free from the electric company. So, if you had been avoiding installation of solar power panels due to the high costs, now you know that neither is it expensive, nor does it require an engineering degree.
