Solar panels are just the way to go, and I don’t think there’s really any argument anymore, is there? But there are problems: One problem is that the government just doesn’t seem to be as committed to converting as much as some of us are. The other problem, on a personal level, is that they are so expensive that it can seem incredibly overwhelming to the common person. So what do we do? The answer is simple…sort of.
We need to start thinking long term on this issue, instead of trying to convert all at once. Even if I can’t convert my entire energy source to solar panels in my lifetime, if I start now, by the time my daughter is old enough to take over my home, she’ll be in a much better position to continue the process.
Start a fund, and dedicate it completely to solar panels. Even if it’s just a little bit, save it. Let it build up interest, and see how much you can save. As soon as you have enough saved for ONE, get it. Install it. Think about how much closer you would be to completely converting your home to solar energy once you have one.
You can be the only home in your neighborhood with a solar panel, and not only will you start saving money immediately, you’ll have so much to talk about with your neighbors. And just think: you might start a trend toward saving the world’s energy crisis.
