Wikipedia: Solar energy, radiant light and heat from the sun, has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Solar radiation, along with secondary solar-powered resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass, account for most of the available renewable energy on earth. Only a minuscule fraction of the available solar energy is used.

Solar powered electrical generation relies on heat engines and photovoltaics. Solar energy's uses are limited only by human ingenuity. A partial list of solar applications includes space heating and cooling through solar architecture, potable water via distillation and disinfection, daylighting, solar hot water, solar cooking, and high temperature process heat for industrial purposes.To harvest the solar energy, the most common way is to use solar panels.
Places to Buy Solar Panels
 

Solar energy is a renewable source that can be harnessed by solar panels. This is a logical and ecological step to make if there is a great desire to not only save nature but to actually lower the costs of utilities that seem to be rising every single year. Total the amount of bills paid for electricity and the homeowner will be shocked to learn that they pay as much as $10,000 a year. The rise of electric bills can average $800 during winter in an average American home. What about those who have larger homes?

The best alternative is to have solar panels installed as they promise to lower the electric costs to as much as 50% every month. However, people always ask one common question, ‘where do they go to buy solar panels?’

Fortunately, it is now very easy to find solar panels because of the increase in demand and the awareness that there is an alternative source of energy that is free and ready to be harnessed at any given time.

The first and most logical place to look for these solar panels is in a home improvement store or warehouse like Home Depot. There, sales personnel who know a lot about the solar products that they are selling will not only give the customer a lot of choices, but they could recommend which would most benefit the needs according to the area where the customer is living. This area is very important when buying solar panels. 

Did you know that you can have a solar power system for most of your household needs created for under $200?

Of course it will require some work on your part, but opportunity like that wasn’t available before! Click here to check it out for yourself.

Next on the list is, sorry guys, BP and Shell. Yes, British Petroleum, that company involved in the controversial oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and Shell Oil are both in the business of selling solar panels. Maybe they know something that the general public hasn’t realized yet, but yes, they are selling the solar panels and customers could actually avail of discounts if they buy in bulk.

Third place to look at would be in your local area. There are some companies there that may actually manufacture or at the very least, distribute solar panels. Ask around and check out their prices.

Fourth place to look into is Nano Solar. This is a company backed by Google so go online and check out their videos and their company information by Googling it.

No matter where the customer will buy solar panels, generally they all work. So simply go around and look for the cheapest ones and make more savings rather than the monthly one from your utilities.
