DIY Solar Customer Testimonial
I purchased it all (DIY Solar System Equipment) from Scott Hunt, owner of Practical Preppers LLC as a complete package. He provided everything but the concrete and wire (although he did provide all of the project-specific cables for the batteries and panels which greatly simplified the build). Everything was shipped to my home via truck freight and arrived in a very timely manner… If you’re looking for any sort of alternative energy, water, or other such non-typical, self-sufficiency types of projects, I urge to you check them out. There are lots of businesses out there doing these things in what is a hot and growing industry, but going through someone who lives the life, and isn’t just tapping into a lucrative market segment, carries a big weight with me.
