Residential Solar Panels
Every ray of sunshine that lands on your roof is free electricity for the taking. All you need is a solar panel to capture it. And thanks in part to the above-mentioned tax credit, lots of homeowners are getting in on the action.

Solar panels should be installed by professionals, and many installers will give your home a no-obligation assessment to determine the best installation sites and offer an estimate. Some may even be able to install solar shingles, which offer a more streamlined look.

Energy generated by solar panels has to be used or stored right away. When your home is consuming more energy than your solar panels are generating, the solar energy simply offsets the amount of electricity you need to purchase from the grid. But when you're generating more than you're using, you may be able to sell that excess energy back to the electrical utility, driving your bills down even further. Another option is to purchase a home battery, which can store that energy until you need it after dark.

2. Wind Turbines
You don't need the type of enormous turbines you see on wind farms to generate green energy for your home. A propeller as small as a trash can lid can take a big bite out of your home energy bills, so long as it's installed in a sufficiently windy area.

Professional installation is key here as well, both to ensure the turbine is safe and to place it where the wind will reach it. And just as with solar panels, you have to use it or lose it when you generate energy from wind turbines.
