Smart Ways to greatly reduce your electricity bill

There are much benefits to you when you install solar electricity in your home and business premises. We may not solely depend on the solar system but its use will drastically reduce how much tariff you pay to utilities company. Not only that, in localities where scarcity of grid electric supply is a norm, you have solar power system to complement existing grid system.

When I looked around this bright sunny day, I wonder how we waste much energy of the sun. Is there a way we could appropriate this energy to boil water, drive cars and illuminate our home at night?

There is a way around this and I am sure we will do the ecosystems good and we will safe on expenditures. Not only that, there would be a great reduction on our dependent on fuel and gases. This is not only for individual government at all levels could exploit this opportunity.

In response to a story about solar tariffs, one of our readers highlighted some of the ingenious ways installers are getting around the barriers imposed on distributed generation by many of incumbent utilities.

Le Clair described how he had installed a 5kW solar system on his household roof, and then, for just $99, added solar hot water simply by diverting excess solar electricity during the day to the hot water element. Instead of getting paid 8c.kWh for exporting excess power back into the grid, Le Clair saved on paying 30c/kWh on his hot water. It cut his quarterly bills from $180 to $20. And it used equipment as cheap and simple as $10 programmable timer switches (one for the meter box to divert the flow of current from the grid to the element in the water heater, and the second to connect the inverter output to either the house load or the supply for the water heater circuit).

Glen Morris, an expert in small-scale renewables and storage with SolarQuip says Le Clairs hot water solar work around, and the sort of programmable switches highlighted, are just the tip of the iceberg of what some describe as the guerilla or hot PV installations happening across the country.

Solar PV, he notes, can be used to power stand alone appliances such as water heating, pool pumps, and lighting circuits without ever needing to be connected to the grid.
