    There are a zillion solar power systems, depending on your needs. If all you need is power to heat 5 gallons of water, all you need is the sun. You can set up a passive system with a couple of old water heaters. This system requires zero collecting panels and no electric wiring.

    Just google "passive solar water heater plans".
