Solar power

I mentioned in my previous post about some of the simple and easy things that you can do to help save energy around the home.

These are small, easy to make changes that should help save a bit on your energy bills and allow you to do your bit to help the environment.

However, if you are really looking to make a big difference then there are some larger things you can do that, although they need an initial investment, will save you a lot of money in the long run.

The main one is renewable energy, i.e. replacing your existing energy sources in the home with energy sources that comes from natural resources which replenishes itself.

There are several different options available and you can find out a lot more about the different types and their benefits on Renewable Energy Focus, a site that has all the latest news and information on the different types of renewable energy and how they are being used around the world.

Solar-house

Probably the most common renewable energy source that gets used around the home is solar energy; you’ll have seen the panels on people’s roofs.

It is the easiest to install and, once it is in place, it requires very little maintenance and lasts for a long time. It is also totally silent and much cheaper than gas and electric so your bills will be noticeably cheaper.

Sure, there is an initial investment to make to have the panels installed, but after that the savings will be considerable on your monthly bills.

It is definitely worth looking into, but if it does seem like quite a big expense then don’t worry, I will have plenty of cheaper tips coming up...
