  1. One of the easiest is natural light. Arranging furniture so you can use a window for task lighting is great. Also window coverings that allow light in but not the heat in the summer can help with your electric bill. In the yard using light and heat to dry clothes, or grow a garden can save money and create a healthier environment. You can use a solar cooker much like a crock pot, many can be made at home or purchased online. I’ve found that they aren’t great for things that need high heat, but soups and casseroles that need low slow heat are great.

  2. Get Off The Grid

    Hi Mozz,

    You can really just start to build your own solar power panels. It’s really not that hard.

    You can start by putting solar power in your home today. There is absolutely no reason why you can’t reduce your monthly electricity costs by at least 50%. Think about that, the next time the electricity bill comes in the mail the next time.

    Every single day, people are building solar power kits which are feeding electricity into their homes. They are simple and cost efficient to make, so no one really has any excuses to make anymore.

    Here are some things that can be accomplished.

    Solar cooker: A solar cooker is a cooking utensil that uses absolutely no fuel for cooking. You can cook food for up to five people in the small box. If you are thinking that using a solar cooker will reduce your chances of spreading up a varied platter on the dining table, you will be surprised to know that you can not only boil food items in the cooker but also roast and bake! The only limitation with the solar cooker is the time it takes to cook. However, given the free source of energy it uses, this is a great option for cutting down those sky-rocketing bills and saving some power.

    Solar home lighting: A solar home lighting system converts solar energy into electrical energy for your home. This is done via cells that are charged with solar energy. So, in the night, if you wonder how the lights are on in the house, it is because of the solar energy stored in the solar cells. You can install the solar home lighting system in your house and not worry about the electricity bills anymore.

    Hope this helps.
