PHOENIX -- Here in Arizona, we have the privilege of sun practically all year 'round. Why not use it to save lots of money and lots of energy?

From solar panels for energy the inside the house to motion-sensor lights for security on the outside of the house, from outdoor landscape lighting to irrigation times, and even solar roof vent fans to keep the heat out of the house, more and more appliances -- large and small -- are harnessing the power of the sun.

There are so many more solar choices in so many electrical categories these days to help us save money, energy and our Earth. What's more, installation is relatively simple because no electrical wiring is needed.

Every home should be considering as many solar options as possible. For more information on all things solar, visit your nearest Home Depot.
