Worlds Largest Solar Farm Switches to Solar Panels

I talk a lot about the cost of solar panels for sale dropping. In the last couple of years the prices have been dropping consistently over the range of solar panels. Since the solar power companies are also claiming lower returns it is hard to know how long this will last.

However, proof that solar panels are getting cheaper and cheaper is the recent news that Solar Millenium AG, the largest farm, will be switching from thermal solar to solar photovoltaic panels. The company will be installing the 500MW farm in California.

So what does this mean for you? Well, that depends on who you are. But if you are the person who wants to install solar panels on your home, cabin, or RV, but have felt it’s too expensive, this might be the time it finally makes financial sense. More and more companies are making solar panels and the number of cheap solar panels are increasing daily.  In addition, governments are getting serious about green power and offer all kinds of loans,  grants, refunds, and tax cuts. The city I live in has  also recently installed a large solar field that will be generating a substantial percent of power for the city. I recommend you find out what kind of program your government is offering.

In addition, remember that you can also save additional money by installing solar panels yourself, and even by assembling them. There are a lot of options to get solar panels on your house. You just have to do a little bit of research to find out which one is best for you.

 

Cheap Solar Panels For Sale

Solar panels have been around for a very long time. They were on my calculator as a kid, and they were around a long time before that. However, it is only in the last few years that they have really started to make progress.

Due to the raising gas prices and energy prices, solar panels are becoming a much more realistic and better option. People who are tired of paying raising electrical bills and paying surcharges for no particular reason are fighting back and purchasing solar panels. since more people want solar panels on their homes, homes that already have solar panels installed are selling with large premiums. Great news for anyone who wants to put solar panels on their home.

However, even with the recent increase solar panel demand and the money that companies are putting into research, there really aren’t any cheap solar panels for sale.  Choosing the right time to purchase and doing your research can save you a lot of money, but you will still have to put out quite a bit of money to get your solar panels. There are however two ways that you can get solar panels cheap.

One is to check your local and national government websites to see what rebates are being offered. As more and more countries are pushing for clean energy, governments are offering a lot of rebates. The amount will vary by location, but in many cases they are quite substantial. With rebates and some good negotiations you might be able to get your house equipped with solar panels for almost nothing.

The other method is for the DIY. With a bit of work you can assemble and install solar panels yourself for a fraction of the cost. This method  will require a bit more work (purchasing parts, assembling them, installing them, and routing the system into your house), but can allow you to be running on solar panel electricity for a much smaller investment.

However, you don’t have to guess through the process. There is a program that will take you through the process for step by step with videos and detailed instructions.
