Interested in going solar but unsure of how to go about it? We’ve outlined some ways to incorporate solar power into your home!
Small solar tech changes
Start small with tackling the items you use in everyday life and finding their solar option. Today, there’s an alternative for many appliances such as flashlights, thermostats, solar visor radios, phone or tablet chargers, and more! Starting with items like these can inspire you to eventually take the next step towards other larger changes around your home.
Go green with landscape lighting
Just like with the everyday tech we mentioned, there are plenty of energy-efficient options for your outdoor lighting. You are able to enjoy the sun all day, and with solar-powered path and landscaping lights, you’ll be taking advantage of the powerful rays throughout the night!
Take advantage of solar panels
This is the method most people are familiar with, but it’s tried and true if you’re looking into renewable power. They typically go on your roof and can often generate 10 or more watts per square foot. The average home consumes at least a kilowatt of power so a few square feet of solar paneling should cover all of your power needs.
