So you are considering living off the grid with solar power for your home? If you are like me, this was a pretty scary idea at first. However, with time, and the right plans, you should become comfortable and even excited about the idea of living from off the grid solar power. In this article I will show you a few reasons why you should get off the grid, and some plans to get started.

To begin, let's look at the major advantages of Off the Grid Solar Power.

-Limit or Erase your dependability on society for resources. The rising cost of oil, global warming, and the constant threat of terrorism: With all of these things facing us every day, how secure do you really feel that public utilities will always be available to you at an affordable price, if at all?

-Free to Use. Can you imagine how it would feel to run the A/C as cold as you want it all summer?. What about heating the house all winter for free? With off the grid solar power all of the energy you use is free. Once it is set up, everything from then on costs you nothing! Never get another power bill again.

-Easier Than You Think: Many people still think of alternative energy sources for the home, like solar power, as some new scientific break through that the average homeowner cannot afford to use. This is absolutely not true. Today there are many systems available that can be built at home at low cost.

I wrote a quick review of the best plans I have found so far for building Off the Grid Solar Power Panels .

This system can easily be built as a weekend project, and completely with parts from your local hardware store. Find Out How .
