Group Description

This group is for DIY Do-It-Yourself approaches to solar power for homeowners and hobbiests. This includes grid-tie and off-grid systems as needed to take best advantage of the rapidly evolving technical and economics of solar electricity.

We are talking about practical systems, practical people, and practical approaches. We do not want any sales, or marketing types, nor hype. Just the truth about solar systems.

Each state seems to have its own unique gotcha's. This group can be a clearing house for sharing those ideas.

As background, I have spent 18 months trying to get my 8Kw DIY solar panels on my pier (A a result, we now have pending legislation in Maryland to overturn the prohibition against solar panels on piers). And another 6 months trying to get them in my yard (We won a zoning hearing to allow panels in the Chesapeake Bay Critical Area). I have a web page chroniceling my adventures in alternative energy: http://aprs.org/alternative-energy.html

Welcome aboard. Bob, WB4APR
