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.
Before signing any agreement for installation of solar energy products, get at least three estimates. Once the estimates are in your hand, read each one carefully to ensure that the installation is up to your standards. Each estimate should include a time frame of completion, a list of materials and the estimated amount of labor charged.
Western Harmonics solar powered fan, kit #1505-HG, features a great fan running directly off a 10 Watt solar panel. Great for a variety of uses!
