Welcome to the Simply Solar forum! Our companion e-mail group over on Yahoogroups (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/simplysolar/) has been growing by leaps and bounds! To better organize our messages and threads, we have decided to create this companion forum.

Simply Solar is an easy to build, DIY, solar panel group and forum. We've even been mentioned in Mother Earth News! http://tinyurl.com/4kyct6w
Brainstorming and building solar projects is fun! There are many solar projects that are easy and inexpensive to build, solar is great for the environment and saves you money too. It makes great common sense to take advantage of the clean, free heat that the sun provides every day.

Even if you start small, building solar projects is very worthwhile. Every BTU of heat that you generate by solar is one less BTU you'll have to pay for. Your furnace or water heater will run less, your energy bills will decrease and you'll be a better steward with our precious planet!

But the best part is, this is a really fun hobby! There's nothing quite like the thrill of feeling free hot air blowing out of your solar collector across your hands, heating your home or taking a nice, hot shower with water heated by your project!

Simply Solar is about brainstorming and sharing ways to implement solar heat easily, that anyone, regardless of DIY ability, can use to put money back in their pockets, green back in the environment and have a lot of fun along the way!

We also like to incorporate neighborhood friendly designs. Solar systems can be installed in very stealthy, "low profile" ways that your neighbors won't even notice!

Whether we discover some new ideas or rediscover some old ones, finding and sharing ways to make solar easy, practical, inexpensive and fun for everyone is what we are all about! If this excites you, please join us here at SimplySolar!
