DIY Solar Panels – Solar panels for the home have been with us for years. Other technologies for the home have taken off. Yet take up of residential solar panels has actually been decreasing in the United States as share of the total US solar market. In 2010, residential solar panel installations accounted for 30% of all solar installations, compared with 36% the previous year.
So what’s behind this reduction in the adoption of home solar panels? Quite simply, cost. Unlike a DIY Solar Panel, a complete solar panel system installation isn’t cheap. A solar panel system can cost $25,000 or more, depending on the system’s size and other factors.
