Once you have solar energy panels installed on your home, make sure that you keep them clean. Many people do not realize a cleaner panel will attract more of the sun's energy. Depending on the area you live in, you should wash your panels every two to four weeks or so.
When using solar energy for the first time, it's probably a good idea to start out small. A small investment of just a few solar powered garden lights is a great way to get started. You can find them at big box and even home improvement stores. They are as easy to install as any other garden light.

Purchase batteries to store excess solar energy. These batteries are similar to rechargeable batteries; however, they use the sun's energy to power up the batteries. This energy can be used in the evenings and at night to help power your appliances, televisions and lighting requirements. These batteries are relatively inexpensive making them a great choice for the beginner.
