Perhaps you’ve heard a little about the benefits of having a solar panel but you are hesitant to put out the cash to purchase one. Everyone would agree that switching from regular greenhouse gases to solar power is a great idea and so helpful to our environment. So if the cash part of it is holding you back, maybe there is a way you can obtain parts of a system from family or friends for free or next to nothing. Or perhaps you can obtain free solar panel plans.
But, unless you have a rich uncle in the family that is willing to shower you with money, you probably will not be able to get set up for free with a solar panel system in your home. There may be times however, that if you ask family and friends, they will be able to give you unused parts that they may have left over from when their home unit was installed. Don’t fret about the cost. You just need to look at it as paying off in the long run. The cash you put out today will trickle back in slowly over time and before you know it, your solar panel system will be paid off and you will no longer have an electric bill haunting you every month.
Where You Could Look For A Free Solar Panel?
There are multiple free things listed in the newspaper of larger cities. And who knows? You may just happen to stumble upon a solar panel system that’s free. But just because it is free does not mean it will do a great job. The people who are advertising it may be getting rid of it because they are having a newer version with the latest technology installed.
There is also a site for free products on Craig’s List as well as freecycle.com You can at least advertise that you are looking for free solar panel plans. Having friends that are environmentally aware may also be a way that you can be in touch with the kind of people that would offer such a system.
However, if you can’t find a free unit, think of all the benefits of purchasing a new system of your own. You’ll not have to worry about the system not working or only working in a small way because of out dated technology. It’s a sure thing, that you’ll realize someday, it was a choice well made. Both you and the environment will greatly benefit by it.
