Solar Panel Kit Under $1,000
Right now putting solar panels on your house is not very cheap. Depending upon how much energy your house needs, you could be looking at thousands of dollars in solar investments. But would you consider installing a home solar kit if it cost less than $1,000?
If you have the money to make an eco-friendly investment, you can get a home solar kit for about $600. The kit would consist of a Uni-Solar 32-watt amorphous-silicon photovoltaic (PV) module, a Morningstar 6-amp charge controller, two Deka 92 amp-hour sealed batteries and an Aims 800-watt modified sine wave inverter. Other materials that you would need include wire, battery cables, mounting hardware and fuses. This kit will be able to power a 20-inch television for 20 hours or a laptop computer for double that time. Alone, the 800-watt inverter can power a vacuum cleaner as well as a toaster and coffee maker.
