Here Comes the Sun – Do, Do, Do, Do-It-Yourself

If you’ve been thinking about adding solar energy to your place—be it for emergency preparedness, getting power to areas where electricity isn’t available, a zombie apocalypse, or just looking to save some dinero with clean energy—the Thunderbolt Magnum 45 Watt Solar Panel Kit, along with a good Power Inverter and 12V storage battery  is an excellent, affordable place to start.

But how to go about it? What exactly do you need for the project you have in mind? This is where an informed support group really comes in handy.

Who would have thought a whole community website could be built around one Harbor Freight product? But that’s exactly what Ray Dias and his fellow enthusiasts have done with their Do-It-Yourself Solar Energy Forum. Chock full of information, the site includes a chat forum where you can ask questions and field ideas, a Tips & Tricks page, project videos, a photo gallery, a DIY Projects blog , and multiple pages covering everything from wire gauges to renewable energy news. It’s also a great place to learn how to expand your solar power with multiple kits, adding  Solar Panels and Conversion Connectors, upgrading Charge Controllers, and more. This information not only helps you set up your solar power project, but totally supe it up!

Cool site, guys!
