Start Using Solar Power Today
Nearly everyone has thought about having a solar house at some point. It’s an irresistible temptation on those hot, sunny summer days to imagine how your life could be if you were free from paying electric bills. If you’re a real dreamer, you may even imagine the power company paying you for excess energy supplied to the grid! What stops many people from turning their dreams into realities is the perception that solar panel energy has to be expensive or complicated. Here are a few projects you can start with today!
Don’t fall for the idea that it will cost you $10,000 to power up your house using solar light. This easy solar grid tie kit will get you started with a single 200 watt panel and inverter for just $1,000. The cool thing about this is that you can slowly add on more panels over time until you have a 4,000 watt system that will cover your whole power bill.
Solar financing companies are always on the lookout for new spaces where panel solar power can earn them rebates. The company agrees to pay the installer and maintain the panels. You agree to host the panels on your rooftop and, in return, you receive a fixed, discounted rate on your electricity for the life of the lease (usually 20 years or so). At the end of the lease agreement, you can choose to buy the system and cut your bills down to zero!
Solar panels are getting easier and easier to use. Now you can buy solar panel systems that allow you to plug into a control box as easy as you’d plug a computer into the wall to charge. Kits with 250 watts will produce a kilowatt of power per day under normal circumstances. For less than $2,000, you can power a radio, a small television set, a lamp, a fan, a mini-refrigerator, a freezer or a coffee maker.
