Not worth it
There are a lot of complaints about this product on the BBB. Most cite this as being a scam. What you actually will receive is one lone DVD without very much information. You would be better served doing the research yourself or checking out your local library or bookstore. Most of the information provided you can get for free, or you can spend less than $20 at a bookstore and get much better info on solar and wind power that you will receive with this product.
No need to spend 27 dollars on something you can find full info on for COMPLETELY FREE on the web lol
Beyond the marketing hype the product is a sound investment
I'm serious about researching ways to cut my costs. If you are in this discussion then you should be too. Don't come to this discussion to talk politics or to criticize this guy's marketing strategy. Everyone has a right to "vent" and he is just has a bit too much in his spiel to please everyone.
But the weeks and months that have gone into researching and preparing this information product for us will save us countless weeks and months and $$$ of our own trial and error.
So if you are budget minded and looking for how to cut costs for the long run then the 27 dollars for this product is a bargain. It's not even as much as one of the tools you'll need to buy as you start off on the road of budget friendly cost saving investments.
But if you are just a wealthy, green loving, environmentally concerned, tree huger, well, good for you. We need more people like you, but you should be buying a Prius and paying a company to install your solar power instead of buying this information package which you would never watch anyway.
Review of reviewers
I haven't bought it, haven't seen it, but I know the principle is highly successful in California for several people I know who produce their own home energy and save money.
I am only voting to offset the ignorance of people who malign a product they haven't tried and really know nothing about. It seems a lot of people are maligning this guys product as emotional reaction to how he presents it or because of something someone else says.
How about leaving the reviews to the people who bought the DVD or actually know something about it! This isn't a political forum. It's a do-it-yourself DVD, nothing more!!!!
Not a Rip-off
I have not built-out this system and have only watched a few videos and reviewed the materials. It is a shame that they have decided to market this product with a cheezy, scare tactics video since the materials themselves are well-done by professionals sincerely interested in teaching you how to build your own systems. The proper caveats are offered and the kit does seem to include everything you need to realistically build your own solar and wind-power systems.
Although the directions are step-by-step, a certain amount of handiness would be beneficial. Also, the proper tools are required which needs to be considered in evaluating your savings.
Other than the snake-oil marketing, if you are considering alternative energy options this kit is worth the money in helping you make an educated decision whether this is for you and if you should attempt it on your own or hire a professional.
