Installing a home energy kit is proven to lower your power bill and help the environment
But, up until recently, it was also pretty expensive – the only way to install a home solar or wind energy generators was to get it done professionally, which could cost as much as $2,000. Even stand-alone conversion kits can sell for as much as $500.
Luckily, the last six months has seen a crop of conversion kits and guides, which show how to generate electricity using the natural earth resources, with low cost materials, which can be completed even if you have little or no technical knowledge .
We decided to sit down and review these new guides – our key criteria were ease-of-use, affordability of materials, power savings, and speed of installation.
Overall, we were pleasantly surprised with the results – the technology evidently does work, and if you pick the right guide, you could well be up and running in a few hours.
|We reviewed 11 Home Energy kits- only 3 met our criteria:
1.- Home Made Energy
Still the best Home Energy Kit in 2010-2011…”
Home Made Energy
By far the easiest-to-follow guide we came across – our own experience says you should set aside maybe half a day to buy the parts and get it fully installed. This kit includes information for generating energy using solar panels and wind turbines.

This is the only guide that assume absolutely no knowledge about power engineering. Impressively, our support ticket was responded to in under an hour (although it could take a little longer at weekends), and there is an unconditional 8 week money-back guarantee.
Best of all, the technology required is readily available and cheap – we were able to access all the parts needed for well under $100.
we (DIY review team) were able to access all the parts needed for well under $100.
Given that its proven to decrease the power bill by as much as 80%, in some cases even completely, you could well recoup your investment in under two weeks.
The installation of this kit can be done on any kind of house or building. Home Made Energy is aimed squarely at electricity “novices”, and it is still our top pick for 2010-2011.
January 2011 Update : there is now a promotion running on the site, and it is temporarily available for a special discounted price
The Verdict: Fast and easy setup; works for complete novices; proven power savings of up to 80% – our top pick

This kit includes comprehensive information on how to set up home solar panels with cheap materials, explained in a simplistic easy to understand manner.
All in all, it’s a fairly decent package which means you can be enjoying solid energy savings for very little, very quickly. So why only four stars?
Well, perhaps we were spoiled by our top pick, but we found the directions a little harder to follow – and since ease of use is so important, we decided to knock off a star. But this product contains a good information about wind power generators, as well as solar panels.
DIY Home Solar Power is our third and final pick, and it actually includes 2 separate courses to help you create your own Home Solar System.
They report up to 50% reduction in the power bill – however the guide wasn’t so easy to follow, because it required some technical knowledge
When a support ticket was submitted in order to inquire about some technical difficulties with the installation process, our support ticket was not responded to. A full, hands-on support system is vital if a relative “novice” is to install the technology, and here unfortunately it just wasn’t there.
Overall this is a decent product, but unlike our top pick, it includes only information about Home Solar Panels, without including sufficient information on Wind Power Generation.
