Default Re: Alternative energy for your home

Someone I know just went off the grid with solar, but it cost $30K. Someone's claim to do it for $200 raises my eyebrow. I would do more research before jumping at that add. When I read it, my gut didn't like it. Might be source of information, but some of those claims are probably the far ends of the spectrum. Some of it might be possible, but to do your whole house, to hook it al up together probably takes some skill the average person lacks. Good luck, but be careful. I found a 45watt solar panel at Harbor Freight for $200. It's big enough to charge a 12v car battery that can run a small TV and DVD player off an inverter. Do more research for yourself. My 2cents....
