DIY: SOLAR POWER
Would you like to produce electricity from the sun, but don’t know where to begin? Join Timberjay Publisher, Marshall Helmberger for a primer on solar power. Marshall and his wife Jodi have lived “off-the-grid” at their rural Tower homestead for over 30 years, using photovoltaic panels for their electrical energy. The price of solar panels has plunged in recent years, which makes this a more affordable option. But whether or not solar panels make sense for you depends on a number of factors and Marshall will walk you through the various questions to ask before you make a final decision. He’ll also give you practical advice on how to move forward with your own solar installation and answer any other off-the-grid questions you may have (time permitting).
