For Your Home

Congratulations on finding this site! With the glut of high end solar franchises still peddling their wares and dominating the search engines it's hard to get the message out that expensive solar is
DEAD. That's right, you no longer need to pay the ridiculous costs, sometimes going into the tens of thousands of dollars, to get solar roof panels on your home. Cheap solar panels are now extremely easy to buy and put together yourself. All you need to know is where to get them and how to do it.


The best way to get
cheap solar panels on your roof is to source the panels and other parts yourself. We'd highly recommend you get a professional guide at this stage which contains a directory of places to go to get all of these parts cheaply.

It's also good to have a guide because it will tell you exactly how to put all the parts together, what each part does and also give you advice on outsourcing the project to a local electrician or contractor if you're not that technically minded. Our home page has links to the best DIY solar guides as well as solar panel reviews to help you start out on the right foot.


The new era of low-cost
domestic solar panels has a lot to do with the cheap solar panels from China. Most people don't realize this, but China is the World's largest producer of solar panels. It's no secret that China has many advantages for manufacturing which has practically forced the big solar companies to open production there.

Suntech is the biggest solar panel manufacturer in the World, mainly as a result of being the first major player to move it's base of operations onto the mainland. The second and third largest solar manufacturers, Yingli and Trina Solar respectively, have also based their main production plants in China.

The Chinese government has been quick to capitalize on big business investment by providing making the process of setting up production as easy as possible and being flexible around new investors.

For Homes

In the long term everyone benefits because of higher competition and lower production costs the solar panels are becoming cheaper by the day. A few things to bear in mind when shopping for cheap solar panels is not to think that just because the units are made in China that they're not the
best solar panels.

As mentioned earlier, all of the big solar producers are now based in China so the panels you'll get are exactly the same quality as anywhere in the U.S. or Europe. However, instead of paying prices of $2.50 - $3.00 per watt you'll only pay around $1.00 - $1.50 per watt for the same panels from China.

Where To Get Cheap Solar Panels?

Firstly, whatever you do don't use search engines like Google to try and find places to buy solar panels in China, you'll get either spammed or ripped off. Either go to the manufacturer directly, Suntech, Yingli or Trina Solar, or what is most recommended is that you use the preferred dealers listed in our one of the Top 10 home energy guides (above right). Doing it this way ensures your solar panels will be the real deal. Also, some of the listed sites have awesome specials and discounts not available from the manufacturers sites.
