Electric bills are going up and the money you are making is going down because you have a lot more money to pay out when you get your check and there are no signs of things changing in today’s economy.

There are other ways you can cut the power bill for your house so you have extra money to spend on other bills. Solar panels can make enough power for you to power your house so you can cut the electric bill in half or even cut out the electric bill out all together. There are many things you can do to get your electric bill out of the picture with the use of solar panels.

The first thing you need to do is to determine where you are going to set up your panel. You need to put your panel in a place where the sun is going to hit the panel all day long. If you get partial sun from time to time then you have put your panel on a swivel so it is easier to rotate so you can get the panel in direct sun as the day passes by. The solar panel has to be in direct sunlight in order for the panel to produce the maximum amount of power for your house.

Once you have the spot you are going to put your panel, then you have to build your solar panel. You can get a kit with everything you need to build it yourself online for about $200 at the least. There are other plans you can buy online or you can find some plans online for free and then you have to find the materials yourself. You can find all of the materials you need in your local junkyards or things that are lying around your house.

Now that you have built your solar panel and you picked out the spot you want to place it, now you can connect the power plant to your house. This is where your electric bill will be cut or at least reduced because if your local electric company has a program that pays you from producing power, you can actually get paid for making your own electricity.

If you can make enough power for your home and you have power that is just going to waste, look into your power company because if they have this program in place, your power bill might come in form of a check each month instead of a bill.
