Green DIY Energy Guide Review – A Customer’s Take on Green DIY Energy
Ok, so I just purchased the Green DIY Energy guide. I’ve been reading up on renewable energy, solar and wind, specifically, and I’ve also been interested in building a system for my home. I know I could outsource a professional team to build everything, but I like to do things myself and save the money.So….after scouring the Internet for DIY solar energy help, I found Green DIY Energy, along with several other DIY solar panel construction guides. I chose to go with Green DIY Energy because it seemed to have good content, especially the video series that came with it.The Green DIY Energy guide cost $49.97, and it says I’ll be able to build my own solar panel system for under $200. And, as of right now, I believe it. I’ve already skimmed the manual and watched the first introduction video where the host goes over all the parts and materials, and I’m sure I’ll be able to purchase everything for under $200. I’m not convinced that is going to cut my energy bills in half; the solar panel system looks relatively small, but it will be a good start.Here’s what I’m most happy about Green DIY Energy right now: I can tell that creators of the guide actually want you to understand how solar energy works, and put a lot of time into the guides and videos. I’m a relatively quick learner, and even with now prior knowledge of solar panel construction, I don’t think I’m going to have a problem with it. The guide is very extensive and I love the videos, those will be the most helpful part for me.The Green DIY Energy videos are shot in very good quality, and the host is very clear and easy to follow. He doesn’t assume you already know all about DIY solar panel construction. There are 6 videos, starting from the solar panel construction introduction, and going through the entire construction process. They are professionally done, and I’m sure they will be my main source of instruction.The negatives of Green DIY Energy that stick out to me immediately are these:I wish it told me where to get the materials. It does a nice job of laying out exactly what parts and materials I will need, but it doesn’t tell me where to purchase them. But it really isn’t that big of a deal, most everything I’m sure I can find at Lowe’s or Home Depot, but I wish it told me where to find the photovoltaic cells. But with a little Internet shopping, I should find them easily.The guide does refer to a Green DIY Energy online shop, where everything can be purchased, but it is still in the construction process. Hopefully they will complete it soon.Honestly, there aren’t any other real negative points jumping out at me during my initial review. I’m sure that as I get further into the process negatives will appear. When they do, I’ll let you know about them!But, overall, I am definitely happy with my purchase, and am ready to get started on the project! I’ll keep you informed of my progress.
