The sun currently powers a wide range of devices, including satellites and traffic lights, but that doesn’t mean it’s out of reach for the typical person. <em>Mr. Electric</em> is here to help you power your tomorrow with some practical and affordable solar solutions for your home.</p> <h3><a href="http://xd-design.com/product/window-solar-charger/" target="_blank">Window Solar Charger from XDDesign</a></h3> <p>If you’re looking to start small, there are many simple solar-powered inventions that can make your life easier. XD Design’s solar powered <a href="http://xd-design.com/product/window-solar-charger/">phone charger</a> sticks to a car, home, or office window and can charge your electronic devices anywhere there’s sunlight.</p> <h3><a href="http://birksun.com/products/boost-solar-charger" target="_blank">Solar Powered Backpack from BirkSun</a></h3> <p>Some companies have gone even further and incorporated solar panels into everyday objects, making them self-sufficient energy savers. BirkSun’s <a href="http://birksun.com/products/boost-solar-charger">solar powered backpack</a> can charge phones, laptops, and other small electronics when you are camping or hiking, or even if you just don’t have access to an outlet.</p> <h3><a href="https://www.theverge.com/2013/6/22/4454980/ms-turanor-planetsolar-solar-powered-boat-photo-essay" target="_blank">The World's Largest Solar Powered Boat via The Verge</a></h3> <p>Every day, companies are coming up with new innovations to help bring this promising renewable energy source closer to the reach of the general public. While a lot of the smaller solar inventions are useful, more experimental projects, like the world’s largest <a href="https://www.theverge.com/2013/6/22/4454980/ms-turanor-planetsolar-solar-powered-boat-photo-essay">solar powered boat</a>, are showing that solar power isn’t just limited to smaller devices. These innovations making it more obvious that solar power is a viable energy source for the future. If you’re looking to decrease your carbon footprint, there are many ways to do it without making the commitment to power your whole home with solar energy. Consider installing a solar powered water heater or air conditioner, which can decrease the amount of energy your family uses daily. If you are interested in relying completely on solar power, do your research. While it is true that solar cells require a significant upfront payment, they also have great benefits and will decrease your electricity bill in the long run. The government also offers tax breaks for homeowners who use solar power, which can make the switch even more profitable for you.
