I’m not a very technically inclined person so I’ll need a solid guide that will hold my hand step-by-step in the building process.

I live in Denmark and I don’t think that we are as far ahead on solar energy as the US and UK (we are the masters on wind energy though). That is why I’m seeking information on sites in English.

My problem is that again and again I end up on sites that give me just enough information to not being able to build it myself.

They are all nice websites with good information – but far from enough to get me going. They all just seem to exist to be able to sell “the best DIY solar panel guide in the World”.

I don’t mind paying for this information – but I just don’t feel like being the victim of a scam.

If someone can provide a link to solid and trustworthy information on how to build and install solar panels I would really appriciate it. If it’s a .edu or .gov website it would be great. I take it they are unbiased.

Thanks,
Jakob

It is very important to remember that even the smallest contribution counts and is a big help to save our planet, because enough small changes add up to big results. I have seen a number of websites and blogs dedicated to helping make our planet a better place to live. One I found particularly interesting, is completely free and shows how to build your own solar panel.

Every single person, company, and organization can have a big difference on environmental health by doing small things like recycling cans, bottles, plastics, and paper and conserving water and power. But there are some powerful people who think recycling and conservation are a waste and who say global warming, air pollution controls, water quality amounts to nothing more than a scheme to drive business out of state or overseas to escape what they say is anti-competitive over regulation. The schools could do a better job on teaching environmental citizenship and education starting from 1st grade. So we do have a long way to go in changing minds and views. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
