Know the best spot
You need to be able to study the pattern of the sunrise and sunset at your place. You need to see where the sun hits your place the most and you should install your panels right on that spot to maximise the energy collected. This means that you should also study your place first before deciding which kind of solar panel to get whether you’d prefer for those solar panels installed on your roof or those that can stand on your lawn.
There is a standard distance size between solar panels that one should follow. Before deciding where to put the panels or how many panels you’d like to have, make sure you know how big your allocated space is and how to design your panels well. It will help if you have a blueprint for your house so you can design and plot your panels on a sheet of paper. It will also help if you can get an expert opinion regarding the matter.

Know your materials
Building something needs a lot of materials, both big and small. Make sure you know and have all your materials. Study well how many of these materials you need. You might end up getting too much of one material and not having enough of another. Also, you need to know when you will need a certain material so you won’t have to carry all materials with you all the time. Bring only what you need for a certain stage and keep the others which are not yet necessary. This is to avoid having a cluttered work area which may make it more difficult for you to work efficiently.
Read instructions and do research
As the famous saying goes, knowledge is power. So you need to have all the knowledge when it comes to installing panels on your own. Read the instructions that come with the materials you bought. Most of them have step by step instruction on how you can easily install the panels. Reading blogs written by other people can also help a lot. Most of them would share the challenges they encounter and how to solve them. They would also usually share which materials are more preferred over others. So you need to read a lot, and surely, once you start installing your solar panels, it will be easier and more efficient for you.
It may be a bit of a challenge to put on your solar panels all be yourself but with a little bit of knowledge about what you are doing, patience and determination, you will surely be able to get the job done!
