Solar Sphere has announced this week several new offerings that make installing your own solar power kit easier than ever. Solar Sphere is one of the internet's largest sources for solar components and panels.


The first offering is called the SolarPod, which could be a complete game-changer in the solar space. These kits are a complete turn-key solution for anyone wanting to start using the power of the sun. These kits come with complete with the racking, inverters, wiring and solar panels needed. The best part, however, is that wiring the system is as easy as plug and playl. The system comes with a standard wall type plug that users will simply plug into a standard outlet. This kit removes the two most difficult part of every solar installation: roof attachments and wiring to the grid.

The second is great for homeowners who would like to install a larger, grid tied solar powered system on their roof but want an easy solution. Thanks to the new kit design by Andalay Solar, these systems are a reality. These grid tie kits have the inverter and racking integrated right into the panel, so the parts needed to mount and wire the panel are reduced by nearly 85%. The panels simply mount to a roof standoff, and then the panels are plugged into each other. The system needs to be wired to the grid by a professional electrician, but given the ease of the system that would only take about 2 hours.

All of this means that solar has never been easier for homeowners wanting to save money on their electric bills. And for homeowners looking to save money on the cost of installation, these kits make it a snap. Both solar systems qualify for local and national rebate and solar incentive programs too.
