The ingenious idea of capturing the intense light of the sun and converting it to energy has been around for many years, but is just now starting to catch a glimpse of mainstream as large corporations and individuals alike are becoming more observant of the fact that we are destroying the very planet we live on.
Using solar energy can significantly reduce the amount of energy we as humans consume in our every day lives.
Years ago solar panels were only available in massive sizes and virtually impossible to afford. Now they are small enough and cheap enough that individuals can purchase a kit that takes no more than a weekend to make and be using solar panels to power their home in no time at all.
Using solar panels to convert light to energy for your home can reduce your bills greatly. If you actually manage to store enough energy via solar panels you can send power back into your local grid and turn a profit by selling the energy back to power companies.
You can find guides online on how to build your very own solar panel. The guides are very cheap and give step by step directions on how to build the panels all for under $200. This is a massive difference compared to buying pre-made solar panels that typically run around $600-$1000 each.
Using these home made panels in your home can save you a ton a money, if not make you money. And it also helps to reduce the use of natural resources which in turn helps save the very planet that we live on.
