Discover how you can build your own DIY solar panels and generate up over 80% of your electrical needs, and reduce our dependency on fossil fuels. Click here to read more - Home Solar Power Systems and How To Build a Solar Panel

Solar panels are one of the easiest and least expensive answers to our global need of reducing our dependency on fossil fuels. The United States itself accounts for over 25% of the global oil usage. By using solar panels, we can reduce our dependency on imported fossil fuels.

If more people were to build their own DIY solar panels, the world could reduce its dependency on fossil fuels by up to 50% or more. In a residential application, it's possible to generate up to 80% or more of your electrical needs using solar panels.

Once you've acquired the parts you need, and accomplish building the DIY solar panels, then the energy they produce is free for your use. Just imagine how much you'd save if you could cut your power use by half, and how quick the solar panels will pay for themselves. If your monthly electrical bill is $150, and you can cut it by half, saving $75/month, and it cost you $375 (usually less) to build it, then it will pay for itself in 5 months. From that point on, you'll be saving $75/month. What could you do with an extra $900/year? You may think that building a DIY solar panel is complicated or too technically advanced for the average homeowner, but if you are handy with common hand tools and can solder, then you can build your own DIY solar panels in a weekend or two.

Once you have your tools together, you'll need to find your materials, most of which you can probably find on eBay for a really good price.

We all need to be more aware of our impact on the ecology on a global scale and take steps in reducing our carbon output by a drastic amount, if we want our grandchildren to have a place to live. Just imagine how much cleaner the air would be, not to mention how much lower your electric bill will be. Learning how to build DIY Solar Panels isn't really a difficult task when you know how to get started along with the right tools work with.
