Installing Solar Electric Panels

Is there a site that covers this type of thing?

I am in sunny So Cal, and would like to install some electric solar panels on my single family home. I realize electricity is a dangerous thing, but my brother has done electrical connections and electric related jobs for years. He has never attempted solar though.

Any ideas where to begin?

Begin by reducing your electrical consumption, if you expect solar to pay.

A dealer versed in solar electric will help.

Go to the library and look for solar books, and home power magazine on the web.

Hire an electrical contractor who has experience in solar installations, there are too many aspects to a solar installation that require planning and engineering.

Smile Thanks for the Advice

I kind of feel it might be more than I can tackle, but I know my brother is up to it. Thanks for all the advice.
