Electricty for my pump is running me about $10/month as close as I can figure. I'm thinking the payback for solar would be pretty quick. We get enough sun in the southern Appalachians, I think.

Does anyone use solar panels/energy for their pump? If so, is it a possible DIY using something like this Harbor Freight kit?

I guess I would need to add a storage battery. But for those who have done it what else might I need? Also how hard is it to do for somebody who's an OK DIYer, but certainly no expert and have never done solar to this extent.

Thanks
