GreenDIYEnergy is a comprehensive training package for the do-it-yourselfer covering the planning, building, and installation of solar energy systems and wind turbine systems. Overall, the instruction provided is clear and complete. If you follow the instructions, you will have a fully functional solar energy system for a fraction of the cost of a professionally installed system.
GreenDIYEnergy is the top DIY solar training on the market – an investment that will pay for itself many times over. The videos alone are worth the full price, as they clearly demonstrate the step-by-step building of the system.
