The advantages of this kind of business is that the start up costs are minimal and the demand is huge. So what are the steps you should take to set up your new solar panel business.

Learn how to build solar panels

Building solar panels is very easy. There are numerous online solar panel diy manuals for you to choose from. Finding the right one for you will include ensuring that your manual includes tax rebate forms for you to hand to your clients and a membership where possible so that you can remain updated with new technology from those in the know.

Sourcing materials and building supplies gradually

Initially you will want to keep your costs down, but won't want to purchase too much stock until the orders start flowing in. Sourcing the materials is a big part of the business and is the one place where you really can cut costs and make more money. Look at alternatives to new solar cells if possible and consider recycled lumber for the frames. Using recycled and reclaimed wood can also become part of your marketing strategy.

Marketing your product

Start local and move outwards. Word of mouth is the ideal method of marketing, so start with family and friends and then move onto colleagues and acquaintances. If your price is right, then you should easily be able to generate demand. Ask to put advertising on fences where you have solar panels installed and advertise in the local classifieds.

making solar panels should be able to easily manufacture six panels a weekend and selling them on at a profit of around $200 each will result in a very lucrative weekend business that you can take full time when the demand requires it.
