  2. How I wish we can also install solar panels at home. This would cut down (or even complete cut off) electricity expenses! I don't have an idea how much a solar panel costs though.

  3. Solar boards could be a bit more expensive but worth the investment, aside from its benefit for users who can do their share of helping the environment. There is just too much threat of global warming now.

    This would've been a nice power resource alternative. If only the government funds for this kind of stuff.
