Commercial Solar Panels Versus DIY SOLAR PANELS

Old article. There may have changed a lot!

Solar power is a great way to cut down your electricity bill. You can save anywhere from 20% to 50%. There are also people who live totally off the grid, but that has several disadvantages of its own. The great thing about solar power is that it not only saves you money, you can earn money from it too by selling them and by request IRS tax rebates.

That's one of the main reasons that commercial solar panels are so expensive compared to do-it-yourself panels.

You pay for the materials and for the labour time put into it. The solar panels are often produced perfectly. That is not necessary to get a good voltage. What do you rather have, one panel that produces 400 Watts or 2 panels that produce 150 Watts each for the same price?

If you have enough space, you should go for the 2 separate DIY solar panels. It is really easy as long as you buy the right manual. A good manual shows you the in and the outs of solar power, how to construct the panel and how to wire it.

You can also get to choose in materials. For example, you can choose the batteries. You can choose for the cheaper car batteries or you can choose for the deep cycle batteries. Car batteries can't be drained all the way. If you do that, the lifetime of the batteries will be significantly reduced. If you do mind to make sure that the batteries aren't fully drained, you should buy deep cycle batteries. These are all chooses you can make. Your solar panel can be as cheap or as expensive as you want it to be.
