DIY Energy Independence

Are you handy with tools and enjoy building things? Help yourself to energy independence with 100's of do-it-yourself projects at Build it Solar:

Experimental Solar DIY Projects

Solar and renewable energy ideas and projects that look promising (or at least interesting).

One of the appealing aspects of the solar thermal area is that "garage inventors" can make meaningful advances. Some of the factors that make it possible to keep coming up with new ideas and innovations in this centuries old field are:

  • Innovative ways of combining collection, storage, insulation, and distribution of solar energy

  • New ways to integrate solar features with architectural features

  • Opportunities provided by new materials

  • Opportunities provided by increasing prices in conventional energy sources

  • Opportunities provided by the pollution consequences of conventional fuels
