Saving On Energy Cost
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you want to be saving on energy cost, you need to know a few things. Installing solar and wind power can get you large tax breaks both state and federal. The more hot water you use, the more you can save, businesses that use a lot of hot water can recoup their investment in two to five years. You can also get 100% bonus depreciation on most solar and wind power installations. Solar panel will last 25-40 years, once you recoup your investment the savings go directly into your pocket.

Cost of utilities have been and will continue to cost more and more as time goes by, and you may not realize it but solar power and wind power are the only renewable sources of power that can actually bring down the utility bills. It's up to you whether you want to continue to pay these outrageous and out of control sources of power or change to a more cost efficient way of living. In the end you will be glad you did.

Some people especially the ones who rent or the ones who think they can't afford solar panels or a wind turbine has it all wrong, you can build your own solar panels and still save on the electric bill and take it with you if you move. Solar panels can be mounted anywhere that the sun can get to them, they can be mounted on poles like dish tv or on a frame or on the motor home, boat, and anywhere that is practical to run just about anything electrical. They even used solar panels on the two rovers that went to Mars. For under $200 you can build your own solar panel and if you can't use it, you can always sell them for a profit to someone who can use it .

Solar panels and wind power will be the only way of saving on energy cost in the future. Eventually the Earth will be depleted of oil, coal, natural gas, and nuclear power plants have to go or they will definitely be the death of us all. Just look at the danger the power plants in Japan caused and we have these things all over the world and its only a matter of time before the next disaster occurs, and it takes only one to cause world wide radiation poisoning.What would you rather see clean renewable energy or keep on going the way we are destroying the world little by little and eventually costing us more than we can even imagine.

We have a clothes line that we use 95% of the time to dry our clothes. I've seen a big difference in the energy bills between the time we used the dryer as our primary source of clothes drying and the time we switched to line drying.
