Power your Home With Solar Power

By: Kozsun Huseyin

For many years man has utilized the raw products of Earth, which even though are part of Earth, the fossil fuels and gases being burnt, turns the Earth into a planet that looked like when it was uninhabitable for life as we know it. As we have entered the new millennium, a few of us, you and me, have looked for better ways.

Is it really possible to achieve all this with solar energy? I mean, imagine, imagine leaving your lights on constantly, and it does no harm to the world or your pocket!

You get your electricity bill, and get shocked that it is so high! There must be a better way! Wouldn't it be great if you could never see that electricity bill again, and still have power? What about leaving your lights on all the time, and it does no harm to your pocket or the environment?

The question really comes, is solar energy any good? Can solar energy really light your home, and give you all the energy you need to run your home? There are a lot of questions with solar energy; after all it is a technology not being grasped by many. However, more and more people are looking to solar energy to power the home.

One thing to keep in mind is that solar energy is not cheap. You need the solar panels, and some other equipment. Having solar energy also requires having a certain amount of light, so Alaska may not be the best place to install solar panels!

Having solar energy is much better then you might think. Even though the initial costs are high, some of the benefits of having solar energy to power your home is:
* Free electricity
* Cost of solar energy systems gets cheaper
* Zero emissions to the environment
* If everyone had solar energy, we would do major positive impact on our planets health

Homes which are constantly getting brownouts and blackouts can benefit from solar energy. You may be able to earn money, by selling your excess power to other homes or the electricity companies. And if you don't have enough power at the times of the year when there is not much sun light, you can get extra electricity from electricity companies, and your costs would be much lower.

Using your solar energy in your home over time has many benefits. Each year, each month, and each day more you use solar energy, you get to the point when you are actually getting into profit by having solar energy. The tax breaks can also be phenomenal, making solar energy an added advantage.
