After failing to find any design that would fit my needs, I set about designing my own. I didn't really know what I was doing, but I figured "how hard could it be?"

Can Do—Even in a Condo: How to Go Solar My husband and I never thought we could heat our Chicago condominium unit with solar energy—we don’t even own exclusive roof rights on our building. But we noticed the roof had space for solar panels and good solar exposure, and this potential was completely untapped. Our condominium unit is now equipped with a 1.7-kW solar system that generates more than enough power for our unit. Here’s how we did it.
