The sun’s energy is the most abundant form of energy available on earth. Many people, especially preppers, homesteaders, and people living off the grid have either completely switched over or have started implementing solar power to provide electricity for their homes.
What are the advantages of solar power?
- Green energy solution: When you look at the solar energy solution, you will realize that it uses absolutely no fuel other than the sun’s light. Moreover, it does not release anything harmful into the atmosphere.
- Cheapest power solution: First, the energy comes free. Then, the installation cost is a one-time cost. Finally, the investment is recovered within a few years of installation, making the power generated by solar energy absolutely free.
- Convenience of storage: You cannot store conventional power but you can store solar power for future use. The sun’s energy comes to rescue even in the times of darkness! Storing it also ensures a 24×7 supply of power, thus saving you from any power outage.

How can solar power be used?
Solar power can be used in our everyday lives by adopting the following solar power systems:
- Solar cooking system: Solar cooking is about cooking without lighting a fire or using electricity! Before you wonder, let me tell you that solar cooking is not about bland food. You can cook in more ways than one – boil, roast, or bake, cook the way you want! The only demand that solar cooking makes of you is being patient; it is a matter of more than a few minutes. However, it is not asking for too much given that you will get tasteful and healthy food without worrying about paying your gas or electricity bill.
- Solar lighting system: You can now light up the entire house, use every electrical appliance without thinking about cutting down bills. The solar lighting system lights up your house even in the nights, thanks to the power storage feature it has.
- Solar heating system: You can keep your house cozy and warm using the solar heating system without worrying about costs.
The benefits of using solar power are truly endless and you don’t have to spend every last dime you have paying some company to install it for you.
You can create your own solar power easily at home. You just need to know how.
