    I use my local installation company, but here is a link to the brand of solar panel:
    SunPower - Smarter Solar » Sign Up for a Free Home Solar Evaluation

    They're are cheaper ones out there, but these really are a quality panel.

    Very good deal there. I wonder how many would do this if the subsidies were not available.

    I can't imagine it being to easy for a DIY'er. Definitely a lot of work just brainstorming in my head, eg; electrical being the biggest, heights, pitch of roof, weight? How much does the glass weigh?, routing the lines in the wall/joists.
    East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
    we're gonna do what they say can't be done.

    I did sunpowers cost estimator and it told me my house in Texas that the average light bill is $250/month would cost $280k????? Their estimator must be some crazy worst case scenario madness

    It's a very straight forward process. But it depends on your knowledge of home construction. You should however be a licensed electrician since you are running wires through your house and connecting right into the feed from your electric company. When it's finished you will need to have it inspected by the local electrical inspector.

    I'm pretty sure you won't be able to buy the panels unless you're a dealer and they all do the installations themselves.

    If you're looking to learn how to install solar panels as a career, learning how is very easy. As it becomes more and more popular and price keeps dropping it should be fairly easy to find a job.
