Got a DIY solar bug....where do I start?
I have a good understanding of electricity, did many home DIY projects, and do most of my car repairs myself. A local solar installer recommended a grid tied 4.5KW system based on our electricity usage and other factors however the ROI is prohibiting and I have no choice but to install it myself.

Could you please recommend where to start?

If you are going grid tie you should probably start by looking into all of the permits required for your county and electr provider. Then you will have to supply them with a FULL system drawing showing every little detail of every part of the system.

Find out what grid tie inverters are allowed.
Where I am the state has a list of allowed inverters, last time I checked they were all ABB.
