When you choose DIY solar, you’re taking control of your solar project. While a DIY solar system involves some extra effort, you can act as your own project manager and save thousands when setting up your solar panels. You can build it yourself, hire local laborers to help, or do a mix of both.

We’re huge advocates for solar energy, but we recognize it isn’t the right solution for everyone. While solar is sustainable and ultimately cheaper than utility power in the long run, it also requires a significant up-front investment and doesn’t work for every property/roof type.

The ultimate question is whether the advantages of solar power outweigh the disadvantages. In this article, we’ll present the pros and cons of solar energy so that you can decide if going solar makes sense for you.

Advantages of Solar Energy

  • Energy independence
  • Eliminate electric bill
  • Profitable investment
  • Strong government incentives
  • Sustainable
  • Low maintenance
  • Improves property value

Disadvantages of Solar Energy

  • Expensive upfront
  • Takes up space
  • Energy storage is expensive
  • Not right for every property
  • Makes less sense if you rent
