Solar panels at home can derive clean, pure energy from the sun. Installing solar panels at home helps combat greenhouse gas emissions and reduces your collective dependence on fossil fuel. Traditional electricity is sourced from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas. When fossil fuels are burned to produce electricity for the home, they emit harmful gasses that are the primary cause of air pollution and global warming. Not only are fossil fuels bad for the environment, but they are also a finite resource. Limited availability creates a volatile market in which energy prices can skyrocket in a short period. Looking at solar for your home is a good way to supply power to your cabin, cottage, ranch, lodge or backup a security system or an entire homestead. The all in one solar for your home includes all of the necessary products that are required bundled for your convenience.

One of the pros of a permanent solar system include that the system is permanently mounted, so you don't have to worry about the wind pushing it. Cons of a permanent solar power system include that the solar panels at home are permanently mounted, so you will have to clean them off after each snow storm. Permanent solar panels cost thousands more for installation and mounting. The solar panels can not be moved around to follow the sun which changes yearly. And you have to climb on the roof and clean them often of debris.

Pros of a portable solar panel system include that a portable system does not need to be cleaned off in the snow if you fold it at night then open it in the morning. Portable solar panels can be moved easily by hand to follow the sun as often or as little as you wish without having to pay the high cost of a solar tracker system. You can put a portable solar panel system away when you are going to be out of town, so you don't have to worry about theft or damage while you are gone. Portable solar panels are very DIY friendly. You don't have to waste money on high mounting and installation prices of portable panels. Portable solar panels are easy to assemble and dissemble.And you never have to clean off the snow after a heavy storm, just fold up the portable solar panels before the snow or put it away and take it back out in the morning.

Cons of a portable solar panel system are that it is lightweight, so you will need to weigh it down if you live in a windy area. This is just one of the solar panel descriptions you will find on the Green Garden Chicken site. **
