What To Know Before Purchasing A Home Solar Electricity System

The replacement of traditionally created electricity with electricity made from renewable or different resources is now a viable alternative for many people in the Western world. The main stumbling block is the preliminary expense, which is why solar electricity is still not a practical affair in most other, hotter, countries.

The fact is that fitting solar panels to get your home off the grid is a lot cheaper than it was ten years ago, but it is still not cheap. Some countries have introduced incentive schemes and these are fine, as far as they go, but often they are intended for the middle classes, which is not a section of society as big as the working class and which can afford to pay for its own electricity anyway. These programs leave the preponderance of the members of society stuck with the grid. The new British proposal FITS is like this.

Other countries have so-called ‘Green Options’, which means that you can choose to draw energy from producers of electricity from users of renewable resources only, which is good as far as it goes, but the end user is still stuck in the system of being on the grid and being subject to price hikes and black-outs.

If you truly want to get off the grid, do away with monthly bills and regain your freedom from the fat cat oil and electricity suppliers, you need to take a drastic approach. The first step is to work out your electrical requirements.

Calculate the coldest and the hottest month and use the dearest plus 10% as your goal. The fact is that it could take you years to get off the grid, and by then white goods will be using less electricity than they do now anyway. You can also sell your surplus electricity back to the grid for real happiness.

The cost of the professional installation of solar energy systems can be exorbitant and take twelve years or more to recoup, but if you assemble and install your own bank of solar panels, you can more than half that figure. In deed, it is possible to decrease the cost by as much as 75%, if you are prepared to assemble and install the solar panels yourself. This is a job that most capable teenagers can do, given the right drawings or schemas.

The best idea, is for you to read up as much as you can on the topic, because there are several ways you can go. The main ones, using solar panels or other means of renewable electricity, are: remain linked up to the grid, using your own electricity first and selling back any surplus; remain linked up, but send excess electricity to your own batteries, which could be an electric car; or you can get off the grid altogether.

The ultimate goal, in my eyes, is to provide my house with all the home-made electricity from solar panels that I need, to charge my hybrid car’s batteries from the same source and to resell any excess back to the electricity grid.

What a dream!
