Would you like to make your own home energy? You can, even if you have no technical experience whatsoever!
Every month, it seems like our electric bill has no upper limit. Ya, we sometimes catch a break here and there in the spring (when we aren’t running the furnace 24/7 to stay warm). And sometimes in the fall, especially if it cools-off in the evenings, we get a month or two of (minor) financial reprieve by completely shutting off the air conditioner…but the other 8 or 9 months of the year – BAM! – it’s one $250 electric bill after another. This is more than DOUBLE what we paid just 10 years ago, and it seems to inch higher and higher with each passing year…
With no end in sight to these escalating costs, we started exploring other alternatives that would allow us to produce our own power. But we were absolutely shocked by the price tag of those systems. A quick calculation of opting for a solar roof for our house ran well in excess of $40,000.00. And to go with a regular commercial solar panel system, we were looking at an investment of more than $20,000.00. By our calculations, even with the incentives and rebates offered by various government agencies, either option wouldn’t have paid for itself for the next 7 to 15 years! Those are HUGE out-of-pocket expenditures for such a slow ROI (return on investment). And who has that kind of money laying around anyway? Even if you finance it, the commercial solar panel option is like financing your current electric bill…and the solar roof option is like financing both your current electric bill and the equivalent of another new car!
We almost dropped the idea altogether, until we saw a brief presentation on-line. And that changed everything!
Instead of paying a commercial company for a solar installation, we could do it ourselves! And what was really amazing was that the savings on labor for the installation was only the tip of the iceberg. The real savings were on the solar panels themselves. By building our own panels we could get them for roughly 1/3rd to 1/5th of the commercial cost! Seriously, up to 1/5th!
And before you say to yourself, “I don’t have the technical expertise to do something like this”, know this…you don’t need to be an expert! This program shows you exactly what to do and how to do it – from the materials you’ll need to buy, to the actual installation itself!
Slash your electric bill in the next 30 days. Or better yet, have the electric company pay YOU!
