Setting up your own home solar energy system is a Power Efficiency Guide Review great DIY project, but for some it can be a fairly daunting task. The more you self educate on the dos, don'ts, and required steps of building and installing solar panels, the more you'll enjoy the project and your journey to energy self-sufficiency. Before I continue let me warn you there are numerous cheap do-it-yourself solar energy products out there that claim they'll save you a ton of money and give fantastic results - but after buying these products you may quickly discover just the opposite is true. My advice: Do your homework and don't be scammed by trend-hungry marketers.

Some things you'll need to know and do:Buy the right batteries. The battery (or battery array for large systems) is the single most important factor you must determine when starting your DIY solar energy project. The batteries you must have will depend entirely on the type, number and usage hours of all electrical appliances you plan to power with sustainable solar energy. Make a detailed list of everything you'll be running on a daily basis i.e., dishwasher, refrigerator, tv, lights, air conditioner, heating, hair dryer etc... and approximately how long each of your appliances will be powered on during the day and night. When this is done then add 20 percent to the time as a margin of error.

Know the wattage you'll consume. Calculate the total watts needed to run everything on your list during 24 hours. Here's the little magic formula for figuring this out: Watts = Volts x Amps. This step will determine the type of batteries you'll need to have. It's imperative that the battery array will provide the correct amount of amp-hours for your required voltage. In order for your system to work efficiently you must know how many sunlight hours your solar panels must receive to generate sufficient electricity for your battery storage and usage. Also be sure that your solar power supply won't over charge your batteries as this will cause damage and degrade the maximum life of the cells.
