Is A Solar Panel Electrical System Right For You?

Until approximately a hundred years ago in the West, people only had recourse to renewable energy for heat and light for their homes. They burnt wood and sometimes coal or peat (OK, fossil fuels) and got up when the sun came up and went to bed with the sun too. In, fact a large part of the world’s population still lives like that.

Kick The Grid Into Touch By Making Your Own Solar Panels

How would you like to come off the electricity grid? What a dream, eh? Sadly, it will remain a dream for the majority of people because the cost of having solar panels installed professionally hardly warrants the cost. Many experts calculate that it can take well over 10 years to recoup the cost of the professional installation of solar panels. This is way beyond the horizons of most home owners, who would expect a break-even point of three to five years. This is not going to happen in the near future, even with the rapidly rising cost of electricity. Continue reading

Everyone these days is conscious of the issues of climate change, or as the boffins used to call it, global warming.

Can I Use Solar Panels For Home Or Business Energy?

It is almost high noon on the energy front. Oil, the substance that is used to create most of the world’s electricity is becoming too dear to use to produce electricity for home consumption. Even if you believe that there are lakes of oil left, which might be true, the main reason they have not been exploited yet is because it is too expensive to get out. The only thing that makes it a going concern is the high price of oil on the market. Continue reading

Harvesting The Power Of The Sun To Create Solar Electricity

Free energy … What a dream, eh? One of the biggest household burdens is the cost of energy. The cost of energy is often 40% of total domestic bills. So, free energy would assist every family that is not rich a great deal. However, free energy is a pipe dream, is it not? There is alternative energy, that is non fossil fuel based energy, like nuclear energy, but that is not low-cost either. Continue reading

Can You Convert Your Home Into A Solar Home?

When it comes to converting your home into a solar home, there are a few options, because not all homes have the same problems, the same requirements or the same potential sustainable power sources.
