For the longest time my husband has wanted to install solar panels where we are living and “get off the grid.” While the cost of solarizing a home keeps going down, it is still cost prohibitive for us. This is especially true for us since we have never lived anywhere long enough to be able to pay it off and then receive the benefits of “free” energy. Our most recent calculations were that we wouldn’t reap the benefits, financially, for big solar panels for almost 20 years. Yikes.
There are several other options out there for portable solar power. The device Tim had was small but companies also make larger portable solar panels that are great for camping or other outdoor uses.While installing solar panels on your roof may still be too pricey for most of us to consider, there are ways to start letting the sunshine do a bit of work for you. So exciting!
