Solar Power Systems

Our DIY solar power system kits come ready to install by yourself or a hired professional. These kits are the best way to build a complete solar panel system because they include not only the panels, but also racking, an inverter, all Balance of System (BoS) components, and (in some cases) battery options for energy storage.

Whether you're staying grid-connected and want a simple solar panel system to save money on electric bills, or you're moving off-grid for complete freedom and total energy independence, we have the solar power system kit for you! If you can’t find the right kit here on the website, call us at 877-878-4060 and we’ll help you customize one, for free.

Note: Because each solar panel system installation is unique, some materials - typically available from local hardware stores - will need to be purchased separately from your solar power system kit to satisfy the needs of your specific project and local regulations.

Types of Solar Power System Kits

This video can help you decide which kind of solar power system kit is right for you and your specific situation.

Grid-Tie Solar Power Systems

  • Solar panels, inverter, and BoS.
  • Grid-tied solar systems are best for those who already have electric utility service, but wish to significantly reduce their electric bill by generating clean power with solar panels at their home or business.

Grid-Tie Solar Power Systems with Battery Backup

  • Solar panels, inverter, charge controller, batteries, and BoS.
  • Best for those who already have electric utility service, but want the security of uninterrupted power during utility grid outages without using a gas or diesel generator.

Off-Grid Cabin Solar Power Systems

  • Solar panels, inverter, charge controller, batteries, and BoS.
  • Perfect for the scaled-down power needs of small homes or vacation/seasonal-use remote cabins in areas where the connecting to the electric utility grid is unavailable or prohibitively expensive.

Off-Grid Tiny House Solar Power Systems

  • Solar panels, inverter, charge controller, batteries, and BoS.
  • The smallest solar power systems, sized for the smallest houses. These kits include battery storage since tiny homes are typically used in remote areas, and in some cases even built on trailers for mobility.

Off-Grid Solar Power Systems

  • Solar panels, inverter, charge controller, batteries, and BoS.
  • Don't want an electric bill? Off-grid solar power systems are designed for the power needs of mid-to-large size homes that are not connected to the electric utility grid, lived in year-round, and must generate and store 100% of their own electricity.

Advantages of Buying a DIY Solar Power System Kit

  • The components in our pre-designed solar power kits have been carefully selected for quality and compatibility based on our decades of experience in solar power and storage. Some components are made in the USA.
  • Custom solar panel kits are also available - just give us a call at 877-878-4060.
  • Solar panels are long-lasting (25+ years) and require little to no maintenance.
  • Using power from your solar panels is clean, renewable, and free!
  • The sense of accomplishment from installing your own solar power system is unrivaled.
  • Depending on your system type, you can:
    • Make money by selling solar power to the utility grid
    • Maintain power in your house during grid outages
    • Power your home with complete independence from the grid

Home Solar Power System Considerations

  • Will you be in your home long-term? Depending on your state it may take 5-9 years for your energy savings to match the up-front cost of a solar power system — but the system will last for decades, so to maximize your return on investment you’ll want to stick around!
  • Have you taken initial steps to improve energy efficiency at home? Reducing your energy consumption is good for the environment no matter how you source your power! It can also reduce the number of solar panels your system need, saving you money on a smaller kit.
  • Is your house south-facing? Do you have a clear shot of the sun from approximately 9am - 3pm? Ideally your solar panels will be as perpendicular to the light rays from the sun as possible, for as much time in the day as possible. For some people the solution is a ground-mounted solar tracking system, but our solar panel kits save time, complexity, and space by focusing on roof-mounted and stationary ground-mounted solutions.
  • What is the square footage of space available? Will your system's solar panels be installed on a roof, on the ground, or on a pole mount?
  • Does any part of the location the solar panels will be fall in shade between 9am - 3pm? Can the shading be reduced in any way?
