there are a few really good, affordable and effective ways of building a solar array at home, but if you are serious about producing your own electricity then you need to diversify your methods, like adding wind turbines (and others), remember, the sun doesn't shine all the time and neither does the wind blow all the time, so look at a few different ways to generate power, and do what suits you and your budget and needs, a good start point is this site
You realy dont need to make your own anymore, prices have dropped so much, you can also rent now as well .
If you are intresting in a solar panel or a wind tribute, you can find the guide in this hub:
http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Guide-To-Bu … olar-Panel
My hub gives you step by step free detailed instructions on how to build a solar panel along with a material list. I also have a hub on solar panels--pros & cons. You might find the info useful.
1. Figure out your power usage and size of system you need.
2. Buy manufactured products.. kyocera, sanyo make the best panels, deep cycle batteries, charge controller, inverter.
3. Assemble these IAW instructions for each part you bought. This may not seem obvious but you can put it together using the diagrams each component comes with.
4. You tube has some great videos about how to wire everything together.
5. If you are going to do this legally and tie it to the grid or have it off grid but tied into your homes electrical system then higher an electrician to do this for you. This is important, the tax credit you get must be verified by a licensed contractor / electrician and within code.
There is really a lot more to it but that is the best answer I can give with such a short notice... and limited webspace.
I just created my first hub here. I will be following up in the next few days with some articles on wind energy as well as solar enegy for the home. Watch for them and I hope they help answer your questions
May be my article can help you....http://hubpages.com/hub/Solar-Panels-for-Domestic-Use
While I understand how important a solar powered product can be because it saves the monthly utility bill and helps to protect the environment, I still am not clear of the main benefits of making them yourself. I presume it is because a solar product is quite costly and if it's easy enough to make one, then it's justified as it'll save you a lot of money
Does anyone have any other answers other than cost saving?.
