3 DIY Solar Projects To Reduce Your Electric Bills Today

DIY solar
by London Permaculture

Article by Lori Finney

Home solar power systems have become a great renewable energy alternative. Unlike fossil fuels, such as coal or oil, solar power is freely available and can provide sufficient electricity to people wherever the sun shines. So as long as the sun is shining, your home solar power system will be producing electricity for you and saving you money for many years.

If you have researched solar power in the past and decided to pass on installing solar because of the cost, then you should check into solar again. You will be surprised on what you will find this time. Federal government and many state and local agencies offer significant tax breaks to install solar power systems in your home. These incentives alone will reduce your initial investment and make the system more affordable. To find out what rebate or financial incentive is offered in your area, go to: [http://www.buildgreenenergy.info/references.html]

Doing the project yourself with a solar home kit will cost you far less money than professionally installed systems. You can convert any type of home or business into one that creates electricity from solar energy.

For many do-it-yourself-ers, the world of solar energy is untapped because most people are unaware of what things are possible with solar energy. Let’s discuss three of these Solar Projects that a person who likes to do it yourself might consider tackling:

1. Solar Panels

Solar panels [http://www.buildgreenenergy.info/ambigrid.html] are a very popular project for people that like to do it themselves. Not only are they one of the most efficient ways to save on electricity, but also solar power is a reliable form of renewable energy that does not emit harmful by-product likes traditional energy production.

Solar cells, also referred to as photovoltaic cells (photo=light, voltaic=of or producing electricity), are grouped and connected together in a single frame called a panel. These panels are a great way to collect sunlight and convert it to energy that can be used for electricity.

Thanks to technology it is much easier to build your own solar panel. In addition there are several guides available to help you with this process. Be sure to do your research and choose a reputable DIY guide that clearly illustrates how to build your own solar panel.

2. Solar Water Heaters

Every household enjoys hot water but did you know that approximately 30% of all home energy costs are being spent on heating water? Whether you are doing dishes, washing clothes, taking a bath, or just washing your hands, when you turn on the water you expect hot water to be available. A lot of energy is required for a water heater to supply a household with hot water, which makes your monthly bill costly.

A solution to reduce your expenses related to keeping your water hot would be to install a Solar Water Heater. No special tools are needed and with a basic understanding of wiring and plumbing connections, you can do this project yourself.

A quality DIY manual that gives you each step by step process of how to build and install this system is needed.

3. Solar Air Heaters

Do you notice the cost to heat your home rising every winter? Since the sun provides heat all year round, let us explore how you can take advantage of it during the cold days of winter.

Using solar thermal technology, a solar air heater produces heat from the sun so your heating system does not have to operate as often during the day. Supplementing your existing heating system with solar air heating will dramatically reduce your heating costs by as much as 30%.

Many people have developed DIY guides that show various distinctive ways of building solar heaters, and although their materials and methods are different, the results are the same: a successful and fully-functional solar heater.

Adding solar energy alternatives into your home design is not a difficult process at all using DIY guides. Each of these projects can be completed separately. Give it a try. Chances are you might even find that you have fun!
