The video explains that the guide comes with a complete no-questions-asked money-back
guarantee good for 60 days after you order (and you can keep the guide itself just
for checking it out). The plans are sold through Clickbank, which guarantees the
guarantee (so to speak). So My Solar Plans really is no-risk.
So are the plans any good? On the whole, yes: this is a good, easy-to-understand,
step-by-step guide to making your own solar panels and using them to create and install
your own solar roof panels system.
The guide presents all of the tools and materials you'll need, how to shop for photovoltaic
solar cells (the working component of domestic solar panels) online to get the best
prices, and what steps to take to make the panels and put them together into a system.
As the video makes clear, making your own solar panels and installing your own system
can be a fair amount of work. However, it can also save a lot of money compared to
having the system commercially installed.
A system that might cost $15,000 fully installed would require outlays of less than
$5,000 if you do it yourself from start to finish. Most of the tools are things that
any homeowner would probably have already. A soldering iron is the main likely exception.
You might also have to buy clamps, eye protectors, a long-nose nail punch, a respirator,
a multi-meter, a paintbrush -- or you might have these already. The components can
mostly be ordered online or, in some cases, even bought at a hardware store.
All of this information is available online for free, but you have to look for it
and it might not be in such a convenient format. For those who aren't heavily armed
with technical knowledge and electronics skill already, and who are willing to put
in the time to learn the techniques and build your solar system, it's probably a
That's why it's even more attractive to install your own solar system rather
than paying someone else to do it. And if you can actually m ake the solar panels
themselves, you'll save even more. There are a number of guides available online
to building your own solar panels. Many of the crap guides are free. My Solar Plans
by Mark Wells is not; Mark charges just under $50 for his e-book and video guides
to making your own solar panels and solar system.

The most irritating thing about My Solar Plans is actually the web site (mysolarplans.com).
When you first go to this website, you are put into a video presentation with a guy
with a thick (but understandable) Australian accent describing the product. There
is no way to skip the presentation and get into the meat of it.
Once the presentation is done, the web site puts you into an ordering screen where
you can order the e-books and other materials. The video presentation is about 15
minutes long. After that, you can immediately download the product and start reading.
A more user-friendly way of presenting the information might have been a good thing.
