Make the Wise Choice: Stop Paying your Electricity and Save for your Children’s College Tuition instead!

You’ve been saving for your kids’ college since before they were born. But, the price of a college education is skyrocketing so your well-intentioned savings may not be enough to cut it. While your child may be incredibly smart, scholarships and financial aid are hard to earn today. If you’re looking for an extra boost to help you sock away a little more (aren’t we all?), then look no further.

Save Thousands Before this Offer Disappears!

Not only does solar power provide enough energy to power your house, it also frequently overproduces energy. “Net metering” provides a way for solar power users to bottle up their excess energy and sell it back to their utility companies for a credit! The credit can in turn be used to power your home at night or simply to further reduce your monthly utility bill.

Ready to be the Leader of the Pack? Here’s How to Show Your Neighbors How to Save Thousands.

Doing something different can be nerve-wracking. In fact, only about 2.5 percent of the population are made up of “Innovators.” Innovators, the title bestowed upon the sect of the population most willing to adapt technology, aren’t hard to identify. Their natural habitat is camping outside Apple waiting itching to get their hands on the latest iPhone release. Innovators and Early Adopters – the brave group following the innovators who compose 13.5 percent of the public – are risk-takers, but they usually stand to reap most of the rewards. Solar panels aren’t brand new technology, but you may still be concerned about being the first of your family and friends to test the benefits.

What Two Little Mice Can Teach You About Saving Money

Let us start where it all began (and you’ll have to read to the end to get it). In the late 1990s Spencer Johnson, M.D. penned a business motivation book titled Who Moved My Cheese? The book is less than 100 pages, but the message of the book is so powerful that it spent nearly five years on the New York Times bestseller list and continues to be one of the best-selling business books year after year.

Who Moved My Cheese? tells the story of two mice, Sniff and Scurry (these are the ones that can teach you an important lesson, here!), and two little people, Hem and Haw, all of whom spend their days in a maze looking for cheese. Early in the story the main characters find a room that has a lot of cheese. They return to that room every day and enjoy the cheese – that is, until one day when they enter the room and the cheese is gone.

Solar Power: How Much You Can Actually Save

You already know going solar saves you money, but you may still wonder exactly how much. Precisely how much solar panels can offset your electricity usage depends on a few variables, including how much electricity you use, the size of your solar system, the direction it faces and how much sun you get on your particular property.

This breakdown shows how the electricity offset by solar affects The Jones Family Savings at 123 Main Street, Anywhere, USA, dollar-by-dollar. These savings were calculated based on an average monthly electrical usage of 1,500 kilowatt hours (kwh) and a $0.12 cost per kwh. The Jones Family’s solar panels will offset 99 percent of those 1,500 kwh.
