Switching to alternative energy such as solar is one of the best things you can do for the environment. It’s a big investment, though, so careful planning, good information and proper technical assistance are paramount to make a successful transition from dirty to clean energy.

The Los Angeles Times has some good tips on how to go solar and it’s great to see mainstream publications such as the LAT giving their readers advice on how to switch to green energy.

The article provides a link to an online tool that helps you calculate how much power you’ll need and the size of the system that will meet your clean power needs. It also mentions two very important features of current home solar power: fiscal incentives and leasing schemes.

Great read for your Sunday.
