Lowe’s, the retail powerhouse in the home improvement category, has announced that it will soon stock easy-to-install solar panels in its California stores. The Lowe’s DIY solar panels, which will be available nationwide next year, fit right into the growing desire of homeowners to make their homes more eco-friendly.

As Discovery News points out, however, store-bought solar power like the Lowe’s DIY solar panels are not entirely do-it-yourself. Along with the difficulty of getting a 40-pound solar panel up on the roof, local utilities have to approve of your project, so a professional installer is typically helpful in tackling the necessary paperwork.
