The notion of using solar electricity to power your households energy needs is not new, what is new is the number of DIY solar electricity options that have sprung up, in particular there are large numbers of DIY guides available on the internet that promise to save you hundreds of dollars by slashing your energy bills by as much as 80% and save you thousands off the purchase and installation of a retail kit.

The question needs to be asked then, do these guides really work? Do they fulfill the promised 80% savings and what impact do they have on the environment?

The first thing we took into account was to look at the difference in the cost between a retail solar panel installation and the cost of building a solar panel yourself. A retail system could cost you many thousands of dollars, a DIY solar power kit on the other hand will only set you back a couple of hundred dollars. This is due to the fact that you pay no labor costs for construction or installation. The total cost is made up of readily available materials. I am sure you would agree this represents some quite substantial savings.

The next major cost saving factor is due to the fact we will be replacing our regular electricity which we are charged for with free solar energy. Once again the actually savings will vary depending on the needs of your home and the people in it, but savings have been reported to run as high as 80% or even more slashed from your current bill, once again this can represent hundreds of dollars that can be better spent somewhere else.

I am certain you are now contemplating just how hard is it to build your own solar power system? Well it isn't that hard at all, in fact it is almost child's play. What you do need to ensure is you get a really good easy to follow DIY solar power kit guide to follow along with. Even the most hopeless of handymen can't go wrong if they are armed with one of these guides.

The beneficial impact of using DIY solar power should not be underestimated. By choosing solar as our energy resource we are selecting an energy that is infinitely renewable and has no impact whatsoever on the environment during harvesting, production or consumption phases.
