Now days there are several different things you can use your solar power energy system for home. Many of your current home appliances can be solar powered, and building one of these systems can actually be a lot cheaper and easier than you might think. Here are few good examples.

Solar Powered Cooker- There are lots of plans available to build a solar powered cooker. Most of these systems use absolutely no electricity whatsoever. One of the most common misconceptions about these systems is that you will not be able to cook a variety of foods. This is not true, you will be able to boil, roast, bake, and grill.

Solar Powered Lights for the home are probably the most common use of solar power today. You can simply buy or build the solar panels, install them on your roof, and power your lights. The panels have energy saving cells so are able to charge during the day for use at night. These can also be completely stand-alone from your home's electrical system.

Solar Powered Heating- Just like lighting and cooking appliances, solar powered heating in your home can be installed and used directly through your current appliances, in this case the furnace, and powered completely separately from your normal electricity.

So really, the most efficient solar power energy system for home would be to build and install several solar panels and use the gathered energy for your heating, lights, and cooking at the same time.

If you are skeptical about building solar panels, or feel that they are going to be too expensive to actually save you money, take a look at these simple plans .

That system can be built as a weekend project, all with parts from your local hardware store. It also includes plans for a simple power generating windmill that is just as easy to build.
