Solar For Electricity - Reduce Power Consumption With Homemade Solar System

 


Visitors: 212

Renewable energy such as solar power is an amazing thing, but it is not easily accessible or affordable to everyone in its current state. However, that does not mean that there aren't things that we can do right now in order to cut down on our energy consumption. We can start by embracing the concept of using solar for electricity. Our electric bills are one of the largest expenses in owning a house. We need power to run all our electrical appliances. The demand for electricity kept increasing but the supply is limited. With the current situation, electric cost will definitely increase in the near future. Are the any ways we can cut our power usage? This article will provide some information on how we can reduce our home power usage by having a homemade solar electric system.

To generate power from solar energy, all we have to do is build a solar array. Solar array is made from a series of solar cells linked together. Solar cells will produce electric current when exposed to sun light. The electric current can be diverted and stored in deep cycle batteries. Batteries in general can only maintain Direct Current (DC). Since 99 percent of our home appliances run on Alternate Current (AC), we will need to use an inverter to change the DC to AC.

Using renewable energy such as solar power is not the ultimate answer to solve our energy issue but it is a start toward energy independence. We have been very wasteful on our home energy consumption. To reduce our electricity bills, we should be more mindful on how we use energy at home and to minimize wastage.

Want to know how you can build your own Home Solar Panels to reduce your electricity bill for under $300? If you are good with hand tools, start a Do It Yourself (DIY) project to construct a residential solar array to harness free energy from the sun. What you will need is a step by step instructional guide. Get a comprehensive Solar Power For Homes guide review at http://www.DIYSolarHomes.com/ .
