Install process. Installing solar panels yourself can be difficult if you don’t know about wiring and installing electrical systems. Start by picking a location for the panels, such as your roof or a platform somewhere in your yard. Install the mounting and rigging wherever you intend on placing the panels. You will then place the panels on the mounting and wire all the panels together. There are positive and negative terminals and you need to wire them correctly for the power to flow into your home. Connect the panels to a control panel in your home and then connect that control panel to your home’s electrical system. There are also plug-and-play systems where you just have to plug the panel into the wall.
