My Solar Plans Review

With the exploding cost of electricity, the dropping price for solar power technology, and the increasing need to lower humanity’s environmental footprint, a rooftop solar system has obvious appeal. But when you call a solar power contractor for an estimate, the up-front cost can be daunting. Sure, you’ll save money on your electric bill, but even at today’s electric prices it could take 15 years before your solar system is paid for from those savings, and the system’s life span is only guaranteed for 20 years.

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 website was first registered by Heath Sanchez on 3rd July 2009. His details are listed as;


Address: 22 Woodview Road, Springfield, New South Wales 2250, Australia

The most irritating thing about My Solar Plans is actually the web site ( 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.


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 good investment.
