Who Is Will Prowse DIY Solar and Is He Legit


If you have a DIY solar power system or are in the process of learning about them, chances are you've heard of Will Prowse and his DIY Solar Power YouTube channel.

Prowse has built a large following on his YouTube channel, DIY Solar with Will Prowse, where he makes informative and helpful DIY solar videos that walk people through all of their options for setting up their own solar power systems without breaking the bank.

Currently residing in Las Vegas Nevada, he previously lived out of an RV for the better part of a decade and introduced himself on the Cheap RV Living Forum back in 2017 saying:

“Hey guys. I have the youtube channel with 300+ videos pertinent to van and rv living. Also author of "mobile solar power- made easy!". I am mainly here to see what questions you guys have regarding solar, and hopefully helping you out. 

Been living in vehicles for 8 years. Got a temporary room right now due to a health problem. Have lived in 2 RV's, 2 van's, car's, bushes, minivan etc etc. 

I will be probably be building out an RV or large van when my health is better, in a couple months.”

Since then, he has worked extremely hard and continued to put out a ton of valuable content resulting in his YouTube channel going from a few thousand subscribers to well over 506K at the time of this writing.

Prowse focuses mainly on affordable DIY solar solutions and the basics of electricity, lithium batteries, solar generators, and more. 

Will Prowse Solar Book

Will Prowse also wrote a DIY solar book called Mobile Solar Power Made Easy: Do-It-Yourself Guidebook to Vehicle Mounted Solar System Design & Installation. Written in 2017, it's one of the best-selling DIY solar books on Amazon, and it has received well over 1,900 five-star reviews!
