Advantages of a Do-It-Yourself Solar Power System
Disadvantages of a Do-It-Yourself Solar Power System
Although the advantages of installing a solar energy system in your home far outweigh the disadvantages, in order to make a well-educated decision, it’s important to know both sides of the issue.
Smaller homes would be, of course, less expensive to heat and power, so the return on your investment would be realized much quicker. However, if you plan to stay in your home, whether large or small, the investment will be well worth the time it takes to realize the return.
With all of that said, does the idea of selling power back to the power company appeal to you? Do you like the idea of
going green in your home and saving thousands of dollars each year? If so, then a DIY energy power system may be just the
right choice for you and your home.
