Solar solutions for all
The founders of Anapode Solar founded the company because they believe that solar is the only real way individuals can take control of their own energy. After all, the sun shines on everyone! They realized that nobody was providing a serious residential solar solution for the do-it-yourself-er — something a handy homeowner or general contractor could install easily, quickly, and safely.
Today, Anapode provides turn-key plug and play solutions that are so simple, you and a friend can install it in one weekend using the detailed instructions and supplemental videos. If you have any questions along the way, Anapode is there with full-on customer support. Anapode kits ship for free. Make the decision to go solar today – Anapode knows you won’t regret it.

Solar power on a budget
About half the cost of a solar system is the installation cost. According to Anapode, the companies that install solar are overcharging for what can really be a pretty simple installation. They can do this because 1. Homeowners don’t understand it and think it’s very difficult to do and 2. Because homeowners don’t want to go on their roof to install panels or work with electricity, or are worried they will damage expensive equipment if they try it themselves. Anapode’s system simplifies the installation to the point a handy homeowner can do it themselves or hire a roofer, contractor or electrician to do it at a tenth the labor cost of other solar options.
Why Anapode doesn’t offer off-grid systems
If you are seeking an off-grid system or backup power system, Anapode is probably not the company for you. Adding charge controllers and batteries to a solar system multiples the cost by three or four times and greatly increases the complexity of the system. Also, an off-grid system is not homeowner installable because it is more complex. Anapode sells solar as a financially sound investment, so doubling the cost and making it difficult to install yourself goes against their vision.
