Using solar power to live off-grid
Before switching to solar power, remember that this option can still be an expensive one. Even though the prices of solar power equipment are becoming more affordable, system prices may still vary from between $15,000 to $20,000. These prices don't include any state or federal tax credits or rebates yet.
However, if you're dedicated to living off-grid and saving money on power in the long run, you can do this by switching to solar power. It may sound daunting at first, but if you do your research and plan carefully, you can set up a DIY solar system so you can finally live off-grid.
