What We Do
Without a proper design, your solar equipment may very well be useless. We'll put all our best practices into designing the solar system that's right for you.
Obtaining permits can be the most painful and time-consuming part of your solar project. We'll provide you with a permit/CAD package that will save you time and headaches.
We provide you with easy-to-read drawings, diagrams, and installation manuals to prepare you for the install. You'll feel more ready than ever to start the installation.
We take care of your purchases and logistics until everything arrives at your doorstep. The only thing you'll need to purchase directly are materials that can be found cheaper at your local hardware store
We're sticking with you 'til the end. We care about your experience and want to help you achieve the great reward of a self-installed solar system that works!
What You Do
With Practical Preppers® always one call away and drawings and instructions in your hand, your only job is to install the equipment that arrives at your door. We highly recommend recruiting local help and for some projects, it will be required for you to hire a local electrician for wiring. Even still, this is only a fraction of the cost of hiring a professional solar installer to do it all. You'll be left with a sustainable solar-powered home for your family and the most rewarding DIY project you've ever done.
