									Install a Homemade Solar Cell and Do Your Part to Preserve the Earth
Climate change and the environment is top of the global agenda today as the need to cut down on carbon emissions becomes increasingly apparent.
As the leaders of the world come together to stragegize how to stop global warming and reduce emissions, we can also do our part to help. How? Put
in a homemade solar cell and not only get free energy but do something good for the environment while you're at it. Make sure to use a kit made by a
certified professional if you do decide to put in a homemade solar cell. Electricity is dangerous if you use an uncertified kit. Start your research here by
reading our homemade solar cell diy review.nBy consuming less energy at home, the workplace, and in our automobiles, we can make a noticable
impact on emissions. You can also accomplish this by installing a homemade solar cell. It's not as intimidating as it sounds. Not only that, it can save
you money too. We can collectively make a big difference on a worldwide scale if everyone take the time to make small changes. Here are some tips
for cutting down your energy usage.nIn the homen* Switch to energy-saving light bulbs. While you're at it, put in a homemade solar cell. It is so much
easier than you would think. They cost slightly more, but save up to ten times their price over their lifetime.n* If you are heating or boiling anything, just
boil what you plan on using. You do not need a kettle full of boiling water for one cup of tea.n* Switch off appliances when you are not using them to
save money and energy. Turn off your computersm stereos, videos, and TVs when you aren't using them. They consume a lot of energy even when in
standby mode.n* Recycle everything that you can. Most people toss their own weight's worth of recyclables like aluminum, plastic, cardboard, paper,
cans, and bottles into the trash. For example, it takes the same amount of energy to make 20 cans from recycled material as it takes to make one can
from scratch. If you recycle enough, your monthly garbage bill will go down if you reduce the service needed.n* If you live in a sunny area you could
potentially meet all your energy means using solar panels.n* Turning down your thermostat by just three degrees will save you 10 per cent in energy
costs. Also, make sure that your home is well insulated so that it keeps the heat in.n* When washing clothes and dishes make sure the appliances are
full. Also, try using lukewarm water.n* When you cook, place lids on your pots and pans.nIn the officen* Where at all possible, store all documents in
digital format on your computer or another storage device. If you must print something, use both sides of the page.n* It is not necessary to fly to a
meeting that is half way around the world. Since the technologies of video and audeo teleconferencing have gotten so good, they have in effect
eliminated the necessity of in person meetings and conferences. Potentially you can save a significant amount of energy here.n* Completely power off
your computer or put it in sleep mode when it is not in use. Computers still use a lot of energy when they are on screensaver mode.nIn the carn* For
shorter journeys, leave the car at home and use a bike instead. Use your bike to get around. Not only is this a fun and healthy way to get around but
you'll also not have to deal with traffic jams if you live in a congested part of town.n*. You may get to work faster and it will even save you money.n*
Join the hybrid revolution. Do you really need that gas guzzling SUV? Purchasing a hybrid is a great way to reduce your carbon imprint as you can
travel the same distance on half the gasoline.n* Public transport is far more energy efficient than driving. Also, remember that air travel is a major
polluter so use ground transport wherever possible.nIn the shopsn* Do not accept plastic bags from shops. Be sure to bring your own recyclable
bags.n* Try to get locally grown organic food. Organically grown food typically takes less energy to produce and is farmed sustainably. Because it is
produced locally, there is a savings in transporation expense.n* Consume less meat. One of the biggest contributors to the greenhouse gases
accumulating in the atmosphere is surprisingly farm livestock.nWaternWhile water isn't strictly energy, it is a finite resource that we need to preserve
and take care of. Here are some tips on how to cut down on your water usage:n* Always use the shower instead of the bath.n* Never let water just run
from the tap while you brush your teeth.n* Make sure you have a full load before using the washing machine or dishwasher.n*Put in a system to reuse
your water run-off and prevent water waste in your garden. This will also serve to remind you to choose non-toxic detergents and soaps.n* Water your
garden when the sun is not at its peak like before sunrise or at sunset.This gives the water a chance to get absorbed into the soil rather than just
evaporating into the heat if you do water during the day. n* A great idea gardening idea is add large water containers aka water butts. Situate them
under the edges of your roof so they receive run-off when it rains.nThis is just a few examples of easy yet powerful methods for reducing your energy
consumption and carbon footprint. We don't even have to do all this things to make a significant impact on the environment and our wallets.nRalph
