Solar Panels For Sale: Your Options

There are many ways to go about getting your house on solar. The cheapest is of course to build your own solar panels and install them on your own home. This is by far the most labor intensive and requires the most time, but it is also the way to save the most money. There are programs like Earth 4 Energy that give you all of the details on how to build your own solar panels for a fraction of the cost.

The next option for cheap solar panels for sale is to purchase a solar panel kit and install it yourself. This still takes a bit of know how, but since the kit is basically complete, you don’t have to figure out what to purchase. A lot of the kits contain all the parts you need and you just need to find the best place to put them and then wire them into your home. You can find kits like this solar kit and connect them together to get even more power.

The last way, and easiest, though most expensive is to have a solar panel company install the solar panels for you. It will definitely be the most expensive, but for those who don’t have the time ¬†or ability to install your own it is the way to go. You can try to lower the costs on this by finding out what types of programs the local government are offering. Their may be tax breaks, grants, subsidies, etc that will all bring down the final cost.

Regardless of your choice, there are a lot of solar panels for sale and the prices are getting pretty low. With the cost of energy prices right now, solar panels are a great option. Depending on the amount of sunlight available around your home and your power consumption, you may even be able to make money on your solar panels.



Solar Panels For Sale: Free Installation

I’ve written before that the solar panels for sale have gotten cheaper and cheaper, and that one of the largest costs is not the solar panels themselves, but actually the installation. For those who are willing to do the work (and have the knowhow) you can install them yourself and save a lot of money. For those who don’t, solar panels will end up costing a lot more. 

Companies are working to create more standard mounting hardware, which makes it both less expensive and easier to install. This hardware will be a one-size-fits-all for most houses making installation much easier. Unfortantely, this is still in the making.

There is another option however: get your installation free. A lot of governments offer grants, tax breaks, subsidies, and other means of help as a way to promote green energy. In this case, the government will pay for the installation (in many cases the larger part of the bill) if you pay for the solar panels. Not a bad deal considering you have a lower energy bill afterwards. This type of government help is making it possible for many people and small businesses a like, who otherwise would not be able to afford solar panels to have them installed. 

What does this mean for you. That if you thought you couldn’t afford to have solar panels installed on your home because they were too expensive, then you may want to check again. Check with your local government and find out what types of programs they are offering. It might just be enough for you to have solar panels installed on your home. If you are a DIYourselfer then you can also go the more hands on route and even make your own solar panels. You might finally be able to get rid of your power bill!
