Most of our customers install their own system, while about 20% source their own materials and hire a local contractor. Explore the DIY Solar Timeline and sign up for our free DIY Solar Workshop for step-by-step guidance on installing your own system.
Shipping is FREE on select products and solar power systems. For individual components that are not included in free shipping, we can give you a shipping cost estimate with your quote.
Our kits and complete systems come with most components necessary to install your own solar system. You may need to source items like wire and conduit at your local hardware store. Contact us if you have any questions about compatibility or applications.
Contractor rates can vary widely. Look for multiple bids to secure the best price. We typically tell customers to expect an installer to charge $.75-$1.00 per watt installed (in addition to the equipment costs).
