When it comes to solar water heaters, be realistic. They're typically only 30% more efficient than any other form of water heater. Second, don't think that just because you shower in the dark means you'll have to deal with cold water. Water heated by solar power should stay warm for 24 hours.
Pathway lighting is a simple and affordable means to take advantage of solar energy. Solar lights take in the sun daily and use the energy each night. They're simple to install and add a bit of charm to the outdoor area.
Do your own research and find out if there are any rebates available for adding a solar system to your home. There are many local, state and federal programs that offer rebates for installing solar power in your home. Also check to see if you are eligible for tax incentives as well.

If you are looking for a solar energy system, make sure to ask your friends and neighbors about their experiences with various companies. A recommendation, or a warning, that you are familiar with can help you to make a smart buying decision. Your friends can also let you know about their experiences after installation, including any warranty issues and cost savings the system has offered.
