How to install a DIY solar panel to save energy and money

Sunlight needs to be converted to electricity to provide sufficient amount of energy. DIY is required to make the sunlight energy to turn into electricity so that it functions properly. Below are the steps on how you can do this process to achieve a functional power grid system.

#1. Consider a location for solar panel installation

Solar panels are very expensive, so they need to be installed on a perfect place to ensure that they don’t get damaged. You can choose ground installation, where you keep all the panels on the ground. Be careful not to keep them in a swampy place where they can sink into the ground when the rain comes. You need to ensure that you have the best panels that cannot be broken on slight tough because by putting them on the ground you expose them to a lot of danger. You can also mount a frame and place them on top which is the better way though it is very expensive to perform.

#2. Install the inverters

An Inverter is a tool that converts the solar energy from the panel to electricity. Choose an inverter that can handle the panel power output efficiently. The type of inverter you choose determines the efficiency of your system, so you need to be careful when choosing what to install. It is good that you select a microinverter for each panel instead of a single inverter for all the solar panels.

#3. Net meter installation

A net meter is a tool that records the amount of power consumption. It is good for yourself because it informs you about your energy consumption. You can use it when you want to sell power that is in excess to people.
