It's true, cloudy days and rainy days are not ideal conditions for using the sun's energy to power your home. The good news is that there are backup systems available to stand in the gap and provide power for your home even on those "no sun" days. Easy DIY Projects Using Solar Energy What projects can you take on yourself without a ton of knowledge? There are hundreds actually, but we'll list some of the easiest ones here to get you thinking. You'll quickly realize that solar power is well within your reach if you simply know how to begin. Solar Stills - produce purer water for cooking and drinking

Once you have this knowledge, you can figure out how many solar panels you'll need to build in order to generate your minimum energy levels. Seek out your local zoning board and request a permit to install solar panels on or around your home. You'll also want to contact your local power company to obtain permission to connect your solar panels to the grid. Obtain a good manual with detailed instructions on how to build your own solar panels or any other beginner's solar project so you know you have a good blueprint. Make a list of the items you'll need to complete each project and estimate the cost of the project before launching it. You'll be using free energy from the sun in no time!
