Solar Power Starter Kit

I'm interested in learning more about solar power and I've always been a fan of learning by doing.

My roof doesn't allow me to have an efficient whole-home solar power setup (according to 2 installers that have reviewed the property).

I do have a detached garage that I could put 2-4 panels on. It wouldn't be enough to power my home but could supplement some of my power needs.


Mostly, this would be a learning exercise. Any suggestions on a starter kit that would end up being a lot of DIY to set up?

@maporsche,
Sorry I don't know anything of any practical use. Is solar your best option? Over here wind power makes a bigger contribution than solar.

I wouldn't mind trying out a wind project either.

@maporsche,
Wind is very big in Scotland where there's not a lot of sunlight right now. I think it depends on where you are, the further south the better the solar energy.
