Is yours one of the many households whose energy bills, and, in particular, electricity bills, seem to be skyrocketing from one month to the next, and wondering if it's ever going to end? Well, it can end, and the beginning of the end could be provided by a sound investment in solar energy.
Residential solar power systems in the USA and many other countries are now as affordable as they've ever been thanks to government incentives and rebates that help to reduce the initial cost of installing one of the many residential solar power systems available on the market.
One of the best things you can do before running out to buy solar panels is look at your current electricity usage and see where you can make reductions. The reason for this is to reduce the cost of the solar power system you'll need, because one of the major factors in determining the size of the system to be installed is your electricity usage. Since, even with rebates, solar panels are expensive, when you buy solar panels as part of your system, the fewer you need, the cheaper the overall cost of the system.
Following this tip can save you thousands of dollars on the cost of a solar energy.
