With solar power on the rise in popularity in recent years, homeowners are finding more and more ways to use energy that’s efficient and good for the environment. However, not everyone is ready to make the full switch to solar energy in their home.

If you aren’t ready to install solar panels in your home just yet, there are plenty of other ways to harness solar power in your home. Keep reading to discover some of our favorite, effective DIY solar projects that can be used in your home.

Security System

There are a variety of security systems on the market that are powered by the sun. They’re typically easy for homeowners to install themselves and they can be positioned virtually anywhere. 

When a security camera doesn’t have to be connected to wifi or hardwired in place and it is completely powered by the sun, it can be used in places like never before. Not to mention, you don’t have to pay for a whole solar panel system when installing it.

Water Heater

A great way to cut down on electricity costs and harness solar power is by installing a solar water heater. You can choose to hire someone to install the heater, but there are also plenty of DIY kits on the market to help you get the job done yourself. 

These heaters work by circulating water through an insulated collector. It then works to retain the sun’s energy and effectively heats your water.


Do you regularly forget to turn the lights off when you leave your house? Solar lighting could be your solution. Although solar lighting is a great way to harness solar energy outside, it’s also an efficient way to light up the inside of your home. 

These lights are quick and easy to set up yourself and they’re quite efficient. Plus, they’re just as bright as any other light bulb.


If you have a space in your home for a solar phone or tablet charger to soak up the sun during the day, solar chargers could be a game changer. Not only are they a great renewable source of energy to power your devices, but they also travel well!

Gone are the days of having more than one charger for the same device. Solar chargers are perfect for at-home and on-the-go charging. 


You don’t have to generate electricity for the sun to be used in your home. A cost-effective DIY solar project could be installing a skylight in your home. Having more windows and allowing for more natural light to enter your home means less artificial lighting is being used during the day.
