Use LED Bulbs










Use LED bulbs instead of florescent ones. LED bulbs are more energy efficient and they are brighter! So less wasted energy but a brighter bulb and they last longer too! Just be sure to only purchase from trusted brands and examine the Energy Star rating, the higher ones are the best. They also come in different wattage. Choose the appropriate wattage according to the size of your room. A 5 watt bulb is enough to light a small room such as a bed room, for example. Seek advice from an expert for further assistance.

Use Solar Chargers






Do you use electrical gadgets frequently? The sun is an excellent energy source and it is free so use it to your advantage. You can invest in solar chargers to charge you electronics.

Some models can be folded or retracted for portability.These devices are ideal for camping or times of calamity when there is no other electricity source to charge your devices as long as there is enough sun light.



Install Solar Panels on the Roof of Your House







If you have the money, there are companies that offer solar panel installations for a decent price. You can rent some and the company will take care of the installation and maintenance. A technician will visit you yearly to clean any dust, dirt or bird dropping that has accumulated. Solar panels doesn't produce any waste product and can last for approximately 20 years.


Install Wind Turbines on your Home









Again, if you have the money, you can further supplement your solar powered home with a wind turbine to help power the lights. Wind is another free energy source. This is good if you live in a windy area like near the shore.
