Have you ever considered installing home solar panels? With the rapid usage of current power supplies, the increasing demand for power alternatives and the consistent warnings about the environment, there are many signs telling us it is time to take action. What can be done? One popular option is living off the grid.

Living off the grid helps the environment, saves resources and cuts down on your own expenses. These are true benefits in addition to all of the positive things that living off the grid will do for the world.

So what are the advantages to living off the grid?

• You reduce your dependence on already depleting resources: You no longer have to depend on public utilities. When you live off the grid, you are depending on your own resources and not the resources being supplied by the government or companies. Isn't it aggravating when you have a power outage in the heat of summer or during a bad thunderstorm? When you go off the grid, you can control your power and not have to worry about outages affecting your life.

• Free use of natural power sources: How would you feel about NOT having a monthly power bill? Wouldn't you like to be able to use as much power as you want without worrying about next month's bill? Using the power of nature, you can light your home, power your appliances and cook your food. You have solar and wind power solutions available to you.

• Lower power costs which save you big money: What would it feel like to NEVER see another electricity bill? I bet it would feel pretty great in those hot summer months when bills can go $200-$400. These alternate power solutions can ELIMINATE your monthly power bill and give you a return on your investment quickly.

• Helping the environment: You can help future generations by preserving energy resources and using nature. Decrease your use of non-renewable energy sources. Try to minimize use of water as it is diminishing.
