Are you at the stage where you are just sick of paying a power bill every month? Let me tell you, there is free electricity for your home all around you. You can build and install it yourself, and it costs next to nothing if you go DIY.
Creating a solar panel or wind turbine is actually much simpler than many people realise, I believe if everyone knew how simple this was the amount of solar panels we see in our neighbourhood would vastly increase.
A solar cell in itself will only take about an hour to make, a solar panel setup for your home can be completed within about three days. If you consider the difference between setting this up yourself, or paying vast amounts for someone to do it for you... with the same result, it really is a no brainer.
I am very much a fan of being self sufficient, I grow as much fresh produce as I can for my family, and I generate as much power as I can for my house. I'm not at the mercy of any power company and if there is a power cut I won't be affected.
To be honest I am completely at a loss as to why more people don't do this, there really are no disadvantages that I can see. If you can provide yourself and your family with something necessary for your well being, that is free, why would you instead choose to pay someone else for it?
I have heard that in some states you even receive money for putting excess power you generate back into the grid. At the very least get your meter running backwards for some nice credits if you actually do run out of power and need to buy some more from the power companies.
The other consideration is your carbon footprint, now this is probably a hot topic and one I am not sure I should actually touch. However, again you have nothing to lose except some well earned freedom from your power bill.
If you know your way from one end of a hammer to the other, you should be fine to complete this installation, just ensure when you take on this type of project that you follow a professional guide that covers all aspects of the installation, free information downloaded from the internet could potentially be misleading or incorrect.
Creating your own electricity is a fun rewarding DIY project if nothing else.

Discovering that I could setup and run my house on a <a href="http://www.solarpanelsdiy.net" target="_blank">home made solar panel</a> configuation has changed my outlook on renewable energy. I absolutely recommend to anyone that enjoys a DIY project that you take a serious look at the benefits of renewable energy at your home too! Between wind and solar power which is CHEAP to setup, you can pretty much farewell that electricity bill for good.
