Best DIY Solar Forums [in 2023]

Today I'm going to show you what are the best DIY solar forums that helped me gain valuable ideas (and even some less known tricks) for most of the solar projects that I have successfully built in the past.

The truth is, I was one of the first to build DIY solar heating system out of pop cans in 2009. Back then, there were not that many forums or online resources available for DIY solar builders.

It means you did not have a place for exchanging opinions and experiences regarding the best types of solar furnace or about the solar pop can heater problems.

However, you probably know that in 2023 there are way too many posts on the internet promoting similar lists or DIY resources.

The key difference is that I joined dozens of forums when I needed help on my DIY solar projects and handpicked only those I recommend here.

The best part?

Rather than listing off all 50 DIY solar forums, I'm going to show you only the cream of the crop so you don't have to waste time as I did.

Let's dive right in.
