DIY Solar

The vast savings that DIY solar offers and the rise in DIY-friendly solar technology is turning the dream of self-sufficiency into a reality for many families. But if DIY solar still sounds intimidating to you, you’re not alone. That’s why Practical Preppers® has come up with a method to help solar DIY-ers from start to finish and beyond. We design your system, ship your products, offer permit packages, support you the whole way, and more!

How It Works

Here’s how we’re making DIY Solar easier than ever

We Plan & Design

– We’ll find out exactly what you need and even consider provisions for power, running water, hot water, AC/heating & more using solar

– We’ll design the solar system you need

– We offer 3D renderings of the system in your space

We Prepare, You Install

– We ship all solar equipment to your installation site

– We offer Permit/CAD packages

– We provide drawings, diagrams & manuals

– You install the system

– We recommend hiring a local contractor for electrical work

We Support

– We provide support and advice as you install your system
