Are You a DIY’er?
Les and Jane have lived off the grid for over fifteen years now and because of their experience can help you build your own solar panels.
They have built their own sun powered and wind energy systems for only a few hundred dollars and have been able to save who knows how much, by living off the grid like that.
How It Happened…
The way it all started was they had actually BOUGHT a system with panels and wind generators and had spent quite a bit of money on it, but it was a very efficient system.
Friends and family saw their unique home and started asking them to come install renewable energy systems on their homes…Les was determined to find a more inexpensive way to build a solar panels unit than to spend $10,000 which is about what they were running back then, almost 15 years ago.
It soon turned into a profitable little business for them to go install these energy systems for others, but they still had not found the solution for the people that could not afford to pay the ten grand to have alternative energy installed in their homes.
Then The Lightbulb Turned On ( Literally!)
The answer on how to build an inexpensive wind generator was delivered right to their door.
The next shipment of solar panels came totally un-assembled with instructions to help them assemble it for their customer.
And the light bulb came on.
What if they could track down all the components and then make their own?
The search was on….
It took them about 2 years of testing and assembling untold wind generators, until they had a unit that passed the test, and the beauty of it was that the parts only cost a whopping $180!
They then went on to also discover a way to build a 400 watt panel for under $200.
They didn’t really want to make renewable energy systems to sell though, for the rest of their lives, so they decided on the next best thing, or maybe it is actually THE best thing!
And that was to put all the knowledge into a DIY Solar panels and wind generators book form so that ANYONE could build both solar and wind generators on their own.
