      That is an idea I have in mind! A friend of mine has got a 12 volt home LED lighting system that runs parallel to the electric main 220v. This in turn is fed by batteries that are recharged by solar panels!

      You can always buy some batteries and have more panels to produce energy just for your own use... you will earn money with the ones producing to EDP and save energy using the electricity stored in the batteries ;)

      Everyday I look at this site (hubpages) as a great way to try and achieve self-sufficiency... you’ll always need some money to survive. I’m just waiting to see if I’ll be able to live just with the online earnings :D

      I´m seriously thinking about going the same way! To bad you can only have a limited number of panels!

      That’s right... solar power have changed my life - watching those panels producing energy and paying for themselves at the same time makes me feel great. It was the best investment I ever made :)

      Yes funride its one heck of a good book and thanks for reading my hub! I,m following some tips from the book and coming out with good results! Solar energy is the way to go now! I personally know some folks that have set up some panels and are getting a 350 to €450 check every month from EDP!

      Hey Nelson, hope everything is fine with you ;)

      Self sufficiency has been one of my priorities for the past years... I started by producing some vegetables and fruits and then invested on solar energy. Now I´m starting to recycle waste waters and in future I´ll have chickens to produce eggs. This book seems like a great source of information. Nice work ;)
