I mentioned earlier about how I save money on my electricity bill by using solar lamps in my home. I have become fascinated by the power of solar lights and I want to be able to put in solar panels when I have my own house.

I found a story on CNN where a family is now paying about $30 for electricity because they installed solar panels on their home. This family is using their solar panels and clothesline to slash electricity bills and I love it. They also have  a solar oven that they use to cook and claim that it heats food up to 350 degrees, which is enough for the cooking I do anyway.

I must say hats off to this family for reducing their carbon footprint and this is motivating me to look closer at solar options. I would love to have  a solar cellphone charger and battery charger so I can save money on the rest of my usage.
