Lots of people are looking for a way to cut their expensive electrical bills every month. Because of this, home solar panel energy is in demand today. It is the best time to start your own solar power business even without investing too much. The commercial solar power contractor offers an expensive package for about $20,000 and above. It will take you around 20 to 30 years before you can get the ROI. Not all people can afford these expensive solar panels for their home which makes it the best time for you to enter the picture. You can start learning how to make home solar panels by making your own. Once you learned the craft, you can then offer your services to your local community. Having your own home solar power system will serve as a sample to show your potential customers.

How to build your own solar panels

First, you need to build your product. If you have basic knowledge about electrical configuration, you can make cheap solar panels on your own. You can find manuals and guides in creating your own solar panels over the internet. Make sure you choose the one that offers a comprehensive package at an affordable price. Check if they have video tutorials on top on the written guides.

Next thing to do is to find the materials that you need in making your first solar power. Basically they are available in your local hardware store. Once you have your materials, it is time to make your first solar panel for your business. The cost of your first solar panels should be around $200, but if you plan to cut the cost of the panels, you can do it by being creative. You can cut your cost if you learn to use recycled materials such recycled lumber for mounting frames. Cutting your cost will surely give you more lucrative income! Make sure to get the license for your business before selling them to prevent any legal problems. Getting license for your own solar company varies from one state to another.

How to market your products

You can start advertising your products inside your town. You can start talking about your business with your family member, friends, and neighbors. Remember that word of mouth is an effective marketing strategy, so don’t underestimate it. You need to consider your price to get demands. Advertising is easy because every satisfied customer can advertise your product by word of mouth. You can also ask them to put your advertisement in their fences for a week or two after installation. Local classified ads are also helpful too, so make use of them. It is important to know your competitors. If they are selling around $500 - $600 for solar panel installation, you can cut your cost to about $300 - $400 if you just know how to find lower-priced products without compromising quality. This way, you will get more customers and gain a lucrative income with every solar panel construction project you do.

Building your own solar power business is easy if you just commit yourself to it. If you don’t have any knowledge about electric configuration, you can look for an electrician that can work with you. Once you’ve acquired your first customer, the demand increases, making you more busy all month long!
