Everyone wants to save money on their utility bills. But what about helping the environment in the meantime? Installing solar energy solutions in and around your home is a great way to not only save money, but the environment too.
Solar energy solutions today are light years ahead of where they were just a few years ago. And no, you don’t have to live in the Arizona desert to reap the benefits of solar energy. Even in northern states (and Canada too), solar energy makes sense because even limited sun throughout the year can reap significant savings for you.
When I used to live in Toronto, I invested in several solar energy products, including a solar water heater for the home as well as several solar products for my swimming pool. Jon Portland, a friend of mine over at Discount Pool Supply Canada, outfitted my inground pool with a solar pool cover (made in Canada) as well as a solar panel roof kit that provided heat for my pool.
