However, solar energy can be used outside the home as well in your yard. Continue reading for some helpful tips on how to utilize solar energy outside your home.

Do you have land and cattle? Do you have a purpose for an electric fence? Maybe you already have an existing electric fence. As big as they are and as much as they're needed, solar energy can greatly reduce your costs. Consider building a solar electric fence that will last a long time and will use the renewable energy resource costing you "nothing."

Tip: Keep your fridge and freezer closed as often as possible. Refrigeration consumes about a third of your households total energy and constantly leaving your fridge and freezer open can increase the energy needed by up to 25%.

Solar outdoor lighting is another thing that is starting to catch on big time. Many people light up their sidewalks, porches, decks, and more. You can use solar lighting for all of the above, and it's a great way to save even more money on energy costs with the use of solar energy. Get creative, and solar outdoor lighting is also very decorative. You can get all different types, and since it is solar powered, you can afford to get and operate more than you would have otherwise.

You can also get a solar water pump in order to save on your energy bill. This is something that if you have it, it runs pretty continuously. With solar energy, you're eliminating the cost of having to do that. Consider getting a solar water pump to complement your goals for outdoor solar energy usage.

Tip: Are you still using oil heat? You could switch to a greener solution without replacing your furnace. Find a qualified technician to inspect your system and make sure you can switch to a biofuel.

Fountains sound and look beautiful, but again, they are something else that runs continuously. Installing a solar powered fountain can eliminate the cost of that continuous running. You will be overjoyed at the savings, and the view of your fountain and trickling water sound will mean much more.

Want to talk an even larger item than a fountain? How about installing that solar powered pool! Think about the energy savings cost this could provide to you and your family. This is a wonderful way to make a pool more affordable. Enjoy your pool more as you make it more affordable to own.

Tip: To help you improve the green energy efficiency of your home, consider installing solar panels in your home. Solar panels are a good source of renewable energy and can be installed at a relatively low cost.

It doesn't stop there. How about getting that outdoor solar powered oven? Think about cooking at no additional cost. What a wonderful way to accessorize your outdoor solar powered devices, and think about showing it off to the neighbors.
