One of the most daunting tasks when it comes to going green is answering the question of just how to do it! There are more than a few avenues to take and I’m going to tackle one of the biggest ones today: solar panels. Even the thought of building one scares me, but I’ve found that some sites have put my mind at ease that is both something we can and SHOULD do!
The big thing for me is apartment living. How could I do solar paneling when I technically don’t have a roof to install them? In case you have questions on if you even can install panels in an apartment, start here. This site gives an excellent breakdown on the feasibility of setting up a system in your condo. Most everyone has space on their balcony to at least do something small, like portable solar panels. This site here has great info on how to get started affordably once you’re ready to get started. Next, we have GreenMountainEnergy.com, which has a plethora of information on going green. I highly recommend perusing the site at your leisure, you’re sure to come away a lot more informed than when you started. In particular, I want to direct focus again to apartment dwellers like myself. It can be daunting finding good information with the limitations of condo-style living. Check out their recommendations here. Finally, we land at Instructables.com, a site that will teach you how to do just about anything under the sun…no pun intended. Hit the site here and check out the information available. This is a little more complicated than the previous resources, but something that shouldn’t be too complicated to figure out for those with a good eye for this.
One more thing I want everyone to know about in this article is that solar energy isn’t only great for the environment but can also be very easy to pay for. It’s tax deductible and there are grants available when installing them in your homes. It can even increase the value of your property if you own home, which is always a good thing! There’s some great information here! Check out the link here. Happy hunting, folks!
