Whether you’re looking to lower your electric bill or reduce your carbon footprint, solar power is a great way to do it. Most people have this false idea that to benefit from solar power, you need to spend thousands of dollars on huge solar panels for your roof. Far from it! Nowadays there are small, affordable panels that can generate a surprising amount of power. And even if you don’t buy any solar panels, there are many other ways to harness power from the sun.
The article I want to share with you this week comes from Knowledge Weighs Nothing. It’s a collection of 24 DIY solar projects, most of which are surprisingly easy. Technically, there are over 40 projects since a couple of them link to pages with multiple tutorials, but the index goes up to 24.
Here are some of the things you can learn to make: a solar light pathway, a solar food dehydrator, a solar oven, a solar USB charger, a solar-powered still, a solar water heater, a solar-powered radio, a solar scorcher, a solar generator, a solar furnace, and much more.
