Maximize the output of your solar panels by adjusting them seasonally. Adjusting your panels twice a year, once in the summer and once in the winter, will ensure that your panels are producing the maximum amount of energy by taking into account the earth's changing position relative to the sun.
Make sure that you get on the roof to look at your solar panels at least once each month. You want to check and verify that they are still clean. If they are not, they are not producing as much energy as they could. Clean them if needed and watch your energy bills drop or even disappear.
In this video, I will cover how to size your solar panels, battery bank, and charge controller so you can build a DIY solar power system that is perfect for you!
You can dip your toes in the solar energy waters by simply installing a solar powered whole house fan. A solar powered attic fan turns on automatically when it becomes too warm. You'll reduce the cost of cooling your home by having this solar-powered attic fan remove hot air from your home. Additionally, as it is solar powered, your power bill will go down, not up.
