Reviewer: Ashley Anderson
Website reviewed: GreenDIYEnergy.com
GreenDIYEnergy is a professionally produced D.I.Y. guide. It contains everything you need to know to build an electricity generating solar panel or wind turbine. Every step of the process is well explained and clearly documented in plain English.
If you like to follow written instructions the GreenDIYEnergy manual is right for you. The language is easy to understand and to follow. Every aspect is well illustrated with diagrams, detailed plans, color pictures and photos.
If you prefer to follow visual instructions you will enjoy the DVD quality D.I.Y. video instructions. You can see the building process right in front of your own eyes. You just need to watch and copy along.
GreenDIYEnergy also offers numerous very useful bonuses that make this product stand out from the crowd ( see below for details).
Customer service, albeit professional and good, is only available via email and not via phone. However, they also offer their customers an interactive forum to ask questions and to share their experiences with other D.I.Y. enthusiasts.
If you want to build a solar panel and you are looking for a professionally designed product with high quality videos, lots of useful extras and great value for money then GreenDIYEnergy is right for you.
GreenDIYEnergy is currently one of the most popular D.I.Y. energy guides on the market. I have reviewed this product and here is what I found:
Can I build my own solar panel and wind turbine with Green DIY Energy?
The most important criteria for any D.I.Y. guide is whether the information it contains is correct and complete. GreenDIYEnergy is a solid product and a comprehensive D.I.Y. guide. It covers everything in detail that you need to know to successfully build your own electricity producing solar panel. You are not being left alone having to guess or assume anything. GreenDIYEnergy also covers all aspects of building your own fully functioning wind turbine. The guide has all bases covered, the information it contains is correct and complete.
Are the instructions easy to understand and to follow?
GreenDIYEnergy uses plain English language instead of difficult technical terminologies. This makes it very easy for anybody to follow the building process. The instructions are step-by-step and very easy to understand even for people with limited technical knowledge.
GreenDIYEnergy uses diagrams, spreadsheets and videos to complement the written instructions.
The diagrams contain all necessary details and are well-labeled. The videos, however, are what makes GreenDIYEnergy stand out from the crowd. They are of DVD quality and they walk you through the complete process from start to finish. You get to see the presenter building an electricity generating solar panel in front of your eyes. All you have to do then is to copy it. The camera zooms in to all the small details so you get a front row view and don’t miss anything. You can also download the videos to your computer and watch them as often as you like.
For me personally, clear video instructions are the cornerstone of a superior DIY guide.
GreenDIYEnergy now also offer step-by-step D.I.Y. video instructions for the built of your wind turbine.
What about customer support?
GreenDIYEnergy provides customer support via email. This support is reliable and professional, However, I personally prefer to be able to speak to somebody over the telephone. Here is still room for improvement.
What Extras do I get?
GreenDIYEnergy offers a number of great extras. In addition to the Solar and Wind guide ebooks and the excellent D.I.Y. videos, you get an installation and mounting guide and an electrical wiring plan for the solar panels. GreenDIYEnergy also includes a useful D.I.Y. Home Energy Audit Kit, a solar panel consumer guide, a collection of wind maps and a guide to an eco-friendly lifestyle. All these extras fit in well with the basic product.
Is Green DIY Energy good value for money?
GreenDIYEnergy is a professional D.I.Y. guide. It is well produced and put together. More importantly, it contains every piece of information necessary for your successful D.I.Y. project. You are not left guessing or wondering about any step of the process. Instead, especially the videos take you by the hand and show you exactly what to do. You just need to copy along. GreenDIYEnergy is most certainly suitable even for a novice who wants to build a solar panel or wind turbine.
However, GreenDIYEnergy could improve their customer service by offering telephone support (In all fairness: none of the other providers that I reviewed do currently offer telephone customer service either).
GreenDIYEnergy currently sells in the same price range as its’ main competitors. With the quality of this D.I.Y. guide and the wealth and usefulness of the information provided GreenDIYEnergy offers excellent value for money.
