The Benefits of Solar Home Panels

By Jacob Subscribe to RSS | March 10th 2012 | Views:

With energy prices rising progressively over the last few years, many Australian home owners are exploring the alternative of powering their homes with renewable power systems. The most common home green energy systems are airstream turbines and solar panels. Of these two, solar energy panels have emerged as the most accepted, due to their fewer moving parts and as they require a lesser amount of maintenance over the years.

Regrettably, installing a solar power system in your home can be extremely expensive. Having solar power panels competently installed costs at least AUD 4000 - and the price tag only rises rapidly from there. To decrease this huge cost, many homeowners are exploring the prospect of building and installing their own homemade solar panels.

Can the average person really build a home solar power system in their garage or basement? If they could, would it actually be appreciably cheaper than having it professionally installed? We will seek to answer these questions.

What Are the Benefits of a Home Solar Power System?

o Reduce or even eliminate your power bill.

o If you generate surplus electricity, you can sell it to your local power company.

o Increase the property value of your home.

o Get tax rebates for using eco-friendly power systems.

o Don’t have to worry about power outages.

o Help protect the environment - solar energy produces no greenhouse gasses.

How to go about building Home Solar Panels?

o Money. The major portion of a contractor's installation fee is time and labour. If you do this yourself, you can considerably reduce the cost of construction and installing your own home solar power system.

o Time. Build your homemade solar panels in stages, adding new panels and producing more electricity as per your own needs.

o Education. By building a home solar power system yourself, you'll learn how solar electrical technology works. You'll be able to perform your own maintenance and repairs, further reducing your maintenance expenses.

Although solar hot water systems will typically cost more to buy and install than conventional systems they can be used to save cash in the long run. The amount of savings you will save will depend on many factors including the quantity of hot water you use, your geographic location and the charge of traditional energy like gas and electricity in your area. In order to maximise the effectiveness of the system the solar panels should be installed so that they are south facing and so receive the maximum amount of sunlight through the day.
