 On a sunny day,  That is FREE ENERGY warming you.  There is a  massive amount of energy reaching the earths surface each day, even through cloudy skies.  The Average amount of sun is about 160 Watts per square meter.  On a summer day, we can get about 600 Watts per hour per sqaure meter.  So in an 8 Hour day, thats 4800 Watt Hours/Meter.
In other words, the equivilant of about 0.5Lt of petrol - FOR FREE!

While a solar panel can be built for less than $200, you will need to calculate the power usage you wish to cover to build a suitable system.  Remember you will likely need a professional to connect your system to your house power supply.  For a DIY project, your first consideration is where is and how much sun do you get. However, a site that is unshaded and sun facing is a basic requirement. In reality you will need 2 or 4 solar panels to be really useful and that means a space of about 3 to 5 square meters of space. This can be a roof or even a garden wall.  Small scale projects mostly don't need planning permission, however, it is best to enquire with your local authority to avoid hassles further down the line.
