By: Barrycrewse
Affordable residential solar power . Have you been thinking about that lately? If you haven't, you should and here is why. Affordable solar is now within your reach but there is more.

The spikes in energy costs recently aren't going to somehow mystically go away. We are rapidly getting close to critical mass when it comes to our energy needs. Prices will only escalate. How much are you willing to pay?

Also consider the environment. Time has come to face the music. This planet is getting dirtier by the day now that nearly all the 3rd world countries are coming of age and the thirst for oil is becoming relentless. We are close to using more oil than we produce.

A couple of good reasons for sure but the best one I can offer is good old fashioned INDEPENDENCE! Not just as your nation needs to be energy independent but you need to be as well and now you can be!

With the advance in technology we are seeing affordable solar power being developed to power every item in your home. Residential solar power kits can now provide that kind of versatility.

These new affordable solar power kits are not only very easy to install but maintenance is a snap. Prices which were once out of reach for most people and now at record lows and are becoming more affordable by the day.

How exactly do these solar power kits work and what is involved? Will the results they provide benefit my bottom line energy costs? Advanced technology has removed many mysteries so lets explore the answers to these questions.

Residential solar power kits contain various modules that when put together can power everything in your house. The main source of conversion is through what is known as photovoltaic cells otherwise known as photoelectric cells.

These cells are squeezed into solar panels and placed as such so that they can take advantage of as much direct sunlight as possible.

Energy from the sun is then converted into electricity which is then stored in deep cycle marine batteries and then can be further converted into AC power or used as straight DC power by use of power converters.

Depending on the number of panels you install, it is possible to power up your entire house and get rid of the electric bill forever! Not only that but excess power can be pushed back out into the grid and sold back to the power company.

You can also install solar water heating modules and also what is called a solar furnace but I have addressed those in other articles. Even things in your yard can now be all on solar energy.

Many new companies are now producing affordable solar power kits employing the latest technology which allows you to completely fulfill your residential solar power needs as soon as today.

The cost saving you will experience with be seen immediately and these systems can pay for themselves rapidly over time. Detailed plans for adding these affordable solar power systems to you home can be found on the web if you know where to look. Installation is easy and energy independence can finally be yours!
