My name is Robert Champion. About a year ago I installed a solar electrical system in my house in the Atlanta area. The primary plan I used to do this was a guide that I purchased online. I found the information to be very useful and complete in almost all respects. Although there are things in any DIY project that you just have to learn from doing, there was nothing too daunting about building the panels. I've got to say that the savings over the retail cost of panels was tremendous. Next was the installation. I have to admit that I was somewhat fearful of two parts of the installation. One was hooking up the electrical output to my home and the other was setting up the panels on my roof. For the roof work, I was fortunate to have a neighbor who had re-roofed his own house a couple of years ago. He did it with the help of his father-in-law in about 3 days. He was more than willing to help me with the roof installation and I certainly appreciated it. I did pay him, but I saved a considerable amount of money and the job was done really well. For the electrical part, I made a phone call to the local electrical union, IBEW. I was looking for an electrician, but, as usual I didn't want to pay retail. That didn't work at first, but then a couple of days later a union member did call me. Apparently the word spread about the work I wanted done and that I would work along side the individual to get it done. Once we started on the project it turned out to be relatively easy. I'm certainly glad I didn't try to do it myself. The thought of getting juiced by the power coming in from the street really scared me. Here's where to go to get the online guide. First I suggest you get the free ebook. It contains some good information. Then when you're ready, download the guide.
