Whether or not you’re ready to switch to solar, take the following steps to help you learn about your options on what to buy, whom to buy it from, and how to calculate potential benefits.

If you decide to buy a system, there are many decisions to make, the most important of which is choice of company.

Since whatever you buy will be up there for years, do at least a bit of research about the options. Here are the main points.

Making simple repairs or improvements and changing wasteful habits will yield enormous energy savings for most families. Before spending thousands of dollars on new windows, a furnace, or solar energy system, take basic steps toward fixing common sources of waste.

Most of us want to reduce our energy usage, regardless of upfront costs, but limited budgets prevent many homeowners from paying for expensive improvements. Here are affordable-to-most projects that will, in relatively short periods of time, pay for themselves via lower utility bills.

If you wanna go big, these projects dramatically reduce energy use—some even offer paths to completely eliminate your home's net energy usage. But the high up-front costs or long payback periods make these improvements impractical for many families.
