This paper proposes a deep study of the power consumption in Saudi Arabia homes. Today, clearly, Saudi homes waste a huge amount of power in each single home because of the high use rate for all home appliances. This is due, partially, to the extremely harsh desert climate in the country. There are many approaches to solve this problem; this paper will present one of the best solutions to solve the waste of the power in Saudi homes. The approach uses the latest technologies available today, including control tools and adopting the relying "Go Green" concept. The solution will be verified by verification and validation methods comparing the current home systems and the "Smart Hornes" system.
