If you intend to build a container home, at some stage you will need to think about how to power it. In my last post I introduced the option of using the HoJo Motor – a device you can legally build based on plans of Howard Johnson’s patented magnetic generator. If you are looking for a completely free energy source to harness, then you could try the sun – solar power.
There are a number of products that can teach you how to build and install solar panels on your container home, or any home for that matter. One product that I found particularly helpful was the Green DIY Energy Guide.
A site called GreenDIYenergy.com is educating home builders and people with little or no DIY experience the secrets of building their own solar energy for less than $200. So if you are looking for a step-by-step guide that will show you the ins and outs of building your own solar panel system, then GreenDIYenergy.com is a site you should visit.
Solar panels are indeed a worthwhile investment, but having them installed will break most people’s budget – anything from $10,000 to $35,000. That is quite an investment. It would take many years to see a return on investment for that kind of money. However, you don’t have to go the retail route with solar panels. You can build your own.
Now, you might be thinking that building your own solar panels would be impossible, but the reality is almost anyone can do this if you have some basic handyman skills. In fact, thousands of people make their own solar panels every year, and you can too.
There is an easy to follow step-by-step guide that walks you through every process of harnessing solar energy. If you love DIY, and want to power your container home then this DIY Solar Panel guide can help you create your own solar power.
For less then $200 you can discover the step-by-step process of constructing 60- to 120- watt Solar Panels. The guide comes with illustrations making it an easy process even for people who don’t know a thing about DIY. Step-by-step pictures, diagrams and schematics show you everything from finding the cheapest materials to installing solar panels. Even the most difficult solar panel construction methods, are put into simple and easy steps that anyone can follow.
The Green DIY Energy Guide comes in three parts:
- Solar Panel Systems
- The $98 Solar Panel Guide
- DIY Guide: Installing and Mounting Solar Panels Guide, Electrical Wiring Plans for Solar Panels, DIY Home Energy Audit
There is also a Library of “Step-By-Step Videos” showing you the exact process in building your first solar panel so you can see real solar panels being created.
So if you are looking at ways to power your container home DIY solar power may be your best option.
