Wind and solar have been the fastest gowning renewable energy source over the past decade. With continually evolving technology, many are wondering if wind and solar power could be used as power in their own homes.

Before choosing a renewable energy system for your home or business, you should always consider reducing your energy consumption by making your home or business more energy efficient. Reducing your energy consumption will significantly lower your utility bills and reduce the size of the home-based renewable energy system you need.

Renewable energy systems involve a significant initial investment. The length of the payback period depends greatly on the systems that you choose and the resources that you have available to you on your site. There are a number of important questions that should be considered before installing a system on your property dealing with the location, cost of the unit and the interconnection of the equipment to the grid.
