Passive Solar Garage Door
This build on the passive solar garage door is a great way to start exploring solar power. What I liked most about this article was that it puts into perspective how much solar power you are going to need to power an engine that runs a garage door. There is a lot to be considered when it comes to making the jump to solar. I think many of us are considering it but something is just telling us to wait.
If you are interested in getting started today, you may like this little build here. It offers you a fresh look at how to use your solar power. There is no rule that it must power your whole home. Instead, you could commit to certain appliances. I mean, we can live without lights but its important for our fridge to stay on when the power goes out.
