Can I install my own system?

Yes, a homeowner can install a solar PV system on their property, which they own and live on, although it is generally not recommended. There are issues such as electric code requirements,  industry best practices and  safety procedures that need to be dealt with and should be left to professionals. Electricians are needed as  these systems can reach lethal voltages of DC electricity  (up to 600V and more).  Also only systems installed by qualified professionals are eligible for the various rebates.
