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.

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.

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

If you live in the District or Maryland and want to go solar but don’t want to pay $20,000 or more up front for it, then leasing a solar energy system may be a better option for you than a purchase.
