With the present recession, rabid unemployment, awareness of pollution and soaring power prices, more and more people are looking to alternative means of power.

Some countries have expressed interest in the possibility of being able to provide hundreds of homes, in certain areas, with solar electricity, through the placement of free solar panels on each home.

These plans may seem like a waste of time to many people, as it is every home that needs a solar panel if the aim is to help the environment and the fight against climate change.

If we want to save the environment from the possible future effects of global warming, then more and more homes need to be fitted with these complimentary solar panels.

A solar panel on the roof of every home would be a great leap forward, for reducing energy consumption from fossil fuel sources.

Is there a possibility of free solar panels? Well, a working example of the free solar panel system can be found in Northern Ireland, where the government is installing solar panels for free, to around 500 homes during 2007,  in an attempt to cut water heating bills by as much as £100 a year.

This will also help the environment, reducing the strain on dirty industry power stations, although only slightly.

You do not have to wait for the government to decide when or if they will provide you with a complimentary solar panel, as there are many low priced, efficient solar electricity or hot water panels available today.

Solar panels work very well alongside home wind turbines, given the right climate and weather patterns, or even with geothermal heating systems.

You can greatly improve your chances of reducing your electricity bill, through the use of solar technologies and other renewable energy technologies. You just have to decide on the right option, to make the most of your geographical location.

If you are to undergo a large renewable energy development, incorporating either; solar panels, wind turbines or a geothermal system installation, then it is worth checking with your local council to see if there are any government grants available, that could help with the financing of renewable energy projects.
