diy pv solar installation?
I did a quick check but didn't see this covered: I've been wondering about whether it is possible to do a PV installation all by ourselves.
FWIW, this would be a ground mounted system. Not because I hate ladders, which I don't, but because our 19th c buildings aren't hankering for having new stuff parked on their roofs and because I've got lots of land.
My DH is a lic. electrician so that's not an issue. We have plenty of heavy equipment for trenching and setting up mounts, etc.
We would want to have it set up as a net-metered system in NY.
So, is it possible, and legal? Is it less expensive than using installers? Would DIY completely leave us out of the various tax rebate schemes? It just seems as though the aggregated components aren't as expensive as the estimates I've seen for installed systems. For us, it's always a pain to have contractors here, not a boon.
TIA for any ideas you have.
