Do It Yourself Solar Project
For homeowners who have some basic electrician and handyman skills, Do-It-Yourself is an additional resource to maximize benefits from going solar.
A solar installer's G&A, marketing and sales costs combined with the installation labor cost may be as much as the half of total price of solar system. Cutting this part off could dramatically increase the system's net electricity savings.
A party planning DIY solar installation should consider, however, that these savings greatly depend on the system design. Size matters! An improperly sized system (smaller and larger) coupled with inappropriately chosen electricity tariffs decreases savings and rate of return on invested in the system money. See Saving Big on Solar and Case Study.
