Solar power may very well be the answer to the pollution problems plaguing an advanced society. It can also save the average home owner a ton of money on their utility bills! Consider this option in your life and how much you and future generations stand to benefit from the power of solar energy.
When the space and resources are available, your best bet for maximum solar energy gathering is a panel system with sun tracking. This type of system tracks the sun's movement across the entire day, and even the entire year. This may cost you a little more at first, but the results in the end are worth it.
It's better to get a solar system when you own a home. Don't overextend! If you have a mortgage and you need to finance your solar energy system, you could endanger your financial security.
Minimize the upfront costs of solar panels by considering a lease instead of a purchase. This spreads the payments over a long-term period into monthly installments, so you could actually start saving money immediately. Still, consider how long you will be in that building, as the long-term periods usually run a decade.
