The Cost Of Solar Panels Can Be Much Lower Than You Think!
The cost of solar panels is affected by the amount of power you use each month, and the tax rebates from your state. You can further lower your cost by reducing your power use with a few simple steps.
Even before you consider buying a home solar power system, you can dramatically reduce the amount of power you use by making a few simple, inexpensive changes around the home.
The first thing to remember is that the less energy a house requires the smaller and less expensive the solar equipment will be.
The more you can do up front to reduce your power consumption, the more you will save in the long run.
Here are some suggestions of those changes you can make right now:
- Using DC appliances can cost less to operate than the typical AC powered appliances
- Change the most commonly used lights in your home to CFL (compact fluorescent lighting) or LED lighting (light emitting diode) You can light 3 rooms with CFL bulbs with the same energy as one room using standard light bulbs, significantly decreasing your power consumption
- Use outdoor solar lighting and eliminate the all night long power drain
- Install a solar attic fan and dramatically reduce your cooling costs
- Be sure you have the proper insulation in your attic and save in the winter and summer
Check out the outdoor solar lights.
And that’s just the beginning.

First enter your zip code to determine your geographic region, and then enter either the average kilowatt hours you use per year or your average power bill per month, and the percentage of power you want your system to generate.
You can get your kilowatt usage per month from your power bill and figure your average for a year that way.
Once you run it you will have an assortment of valuable information calculated for you including the size of the system you should have, the square footage needed, tax rebates you are entitled to, savings per month and much more.
Note that when this information is calculated, it INCLUDES the estimated cost of solar panels PLUS the installation.
You can determine the actual cost to buy solar panels versus the installation costs by looking at the Solar System Capacity Required field. Use the KW of peak power required amount and match it to the Power-Save Solar Panel System, (link) that matches those requirements, from a 1k -10 k system.
As an example:
Solar System Capacity Required: 6.09 KW of Peak Power (DC Watts) Power-Save Solar 6000- 6 KW System would be required.
