    If you’re looking for a new home, you probably know that it’s not quite possible to get the absolute perfect home, unless you’ve had it custom built for you.

But luckily, that 1% (and often more) keeps renovators and home remodelers in business. And it means that you can have your perfect dream home after all! Sometimes it’s little things, like installing ice makers in the refrigerator/freezer unit and having to attach water supply lines.

Much of the precious earth and its precious resources have been used up, damaged, lost, or mishandled in the name of what some would call progress. To be sure, the advancement of our species in the aspects of technology, medicine, science, and more are all incredible and to be applauded. But when it comes at the cost of the health of the planet, it is worthwhile to take a step back and look for another way. This is where the many advantages of solar panels come in.
