How hard is DIY solar?

Building your own solar system doesn't have to be difficult. You just have to choose the right path...

If you've ever received a solar quote, your eyes probably popped out of your head when you saw the price tag!

You might have thought, "Do I really need these chumps? Can't I just install my own solar?"

The answer is yes! Yes you can.

Then you probably thought...

How Hard is DIY Solar?

How hard it is depends on the path you go. There are two options for you:

  1. Build a solar system from scratch - This entails determining your system size, getting the engineering and design work done, getting permits, procuring your equipment, and installing it all yourself.
  2. DIY from a kit - Companies like DIY Solar provide you with a custom designed solar kit that you can install yourself, saving you a lot of headache.

If you choose the first path, you could potentially save more money, but you have a lot more moving parts to manage and there is more opportunity for something to go wrong.

If you choose the second path, then the only things you have to do are getting the permits with the designs we give you and installing the system.

If you know how to operate a drill and can follow a basic electric diagram, installing your own solar from our kits should be a pretty smooth process! And if you're feeling hesitant, you can find your own handyman or use one of our installers to help you do it, all while saving tons of money compared to traditional solar!
