Why Solar Panels Are A Safe Bet For The Future

Solar panels are being used all across the world today, and will be for many years to come, why? because a home DIY solar power system can literally power your home, for a tiny fraction of the cost that a normal energy system costs. Solar power is environmentally friendly and is the working man's best friends..considering energy bills are always a pain when they come in!

Do I believe solar panels can cut your energy bill completely? NO.. But what I do know, from first hand experience, is that you can save a considerable amount, in the region of 90-95% off your power bill. These "DIY Solar" system are relatively easy to install, even if you do not have great experience when it comes to this kind of project.

Here are a few common questions relating to solar power.

How does solar power work?

Quite simply, solar power works by taking power from the sun and turning it into energy to run household appliances, amongst other things. As long as there is enough light, solar panels will work FOREVER, it is as simply as that :) Right now, not many people are using solar panels worldwide, but the people who are know that in about 10-20 years, this will be the most common way that people power their home. Are the energy companies scared? Well, I would be :)
