Solar Panel Kits

Just like anything else, looking for solar panel home plans can be a land mine waiting to explode. You do your "due dilligence" and think you have made the right choice. Once you start looking at the plans you realize almost immediately how useless they are going to be.

With the big rush to "go green" there are a lot of "hucksters" out there that only care about seeing their wallets "get more green". You really do have to pay attention to what you are buying.

One of the pitfalls of the internet is the face to face contact you have with a merchant is gone. That nameless person and not even knowing who you are really dealing with is a recipe for scams and fraud.

Making solar panels isn't rocket science. But, just like anything else there is a right way to do things and the wrong way. Why invest your hard earned cash without knowing what you are getting.

So, what are some of the things you should be looking for with the latest solar panel home plans?

Anyone can put together a web site and pitch a product now a days. It just isn't that hard to do. If anything looks even the least bit suspicious you are better off to pass on it.

Sometimes you just have to take your chances but it's easy to spot the legitimate plans that will actually make this an easy project. Do they have dvd's that seem to be complete and easy to understand?

How about the approval of the NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners)? There are so many products out there that are simply a re-hash of information you can find on your own.With the recent troubles in the Middle East it's just plain downright smart to think about being energy independent. Your local utility company is not your friend my friend. They are in business to make money just like any other company.

The bottom line is this: your investment in solar panel home plans will more than pay for itself over time. A good way to start out is with one or two panels. Watch your utility bills and make sure the savings are what you thought they would be. You can always add more panels as you get the money.

Last but not least, be careful about working with anything related to electricity. If you don't know what you are doing and are just not comfortable with it the best thing is to always hire a professional for the job.
