Install panels a few at a time to break down the cost in setting up your home to operate off of solar power. There is no need to buy everything all at once, as there is much planning involved. You need to give yourself time to make adjustments and learn more as you go along.
The best solar panels are attached to your roof so that they can be adjusted for optimal sunlight throughout the seasons. But if you have to have a fixed panel, choose the best compromise between positions that you can.
If you do not want to go all out when using solar power, you can use small-scale versions. There are a couple of ways you can achieve this. The first is to look for window-mounted panels that can be used to charge your portable electronic devices. You might also find standalone solar powered equipment such as lanterns, camp stoves and more. Every little bit shaves a little off of your electric bill.
Using the energy of the sun is a clean way to power the things we use. It's also sustainable as the energy never runs out. One hopes that technology will continue to progress so that everyone can use this energy.
