Home Solar Power Systems – Save Money While Saving The Planet

Home Solar Power Systems are fast gaining popularity across the nation, indeed across the globe. It stands to reason in these days of economic and environmental crisis that we, the human race, start looking toward viable alternative energies, and move away from our expensive, environmentally destructive traditional energy sources.

Solar Power has of course been with us for many decades now, but unfortunately the cost of having home solar power systems installed, puts it out of reach of the vast majority of households. A simple small installation will set you back a couple of thousand dollars, money which most consumers in the current financial climate, simply cannot afford to pay in a lump sum.

So how do we address this situation and remove our selves from the catch 22 status? where its imperative for the sake of the earth and our children’s future, that we switch to an energy like solar, but where the cost is so prohibitive that most of us cannot seriously consider having home solar power systems installed. Well one way is to take matter’s into your own hands and build your own home made solar panels, Yes that’s right build them yourself!

Its not as daunting a task as it may first appear, believe it or not, solar panels can be constructed from materials readily found at your local junk yard or hardware store. Guides to instruct you on how to build home solar power systems are also readily available, you can even purchase them online (see the following link for more information… Solar Power Kits) for a very cheap price (around $40 to $50).

Equipped with one of the above guides you can quickly have your own solar panels built, no super handyman skills needed (which was a relief for yours truly) and you don’t need to be a rocket scientist.

The reduction in traditional energy usage will depend on how far you want to go in developing your own system, but a reduction of up to 80% is not uncommon in most households that implement their own home made solar panels. This equates to not only some very nice monetary savings, but it also equals a lot less harmful energy usage, which in turn gives the earth a chance to breath and repair itself.

So there is something YOU can do about helping save the planet as well as reap some very substantial financial rewards as well.
