    Me and Earl were considering getting a few solar power systems for our residence not too long ago. The only concern was the price. The most inexpensive solar system we identified was about 15 thousand bucks. It could have taken us decades to recover that amount of money. Anyway, we happened across these instructions for creating your own solar panel products. We ended up going that route. It ended up saving us quite a bit of cash, and the no cost, environmentally friendly electricity is fantastic! 🙂 We run a number of of our appliances off this grid.
