Beating Inflation

I don't have a lot of debt or expenses, so my income keeps piling up in my checking account. Unfortunately, I don't know much about finance or investment. I want to make sure that I don't lose money year over year because of inflation, but pretty much all the CDs and savings accounts I've seen have an APY lower than the inflation rate (which is >= 1.5% according to various websites). I don't care about playing the stock market; all I want is to avoid losing my money through inaction. How do people in this situation keep up with inflation while at the same time minimizing their financial risk?

Nontraditional Investments, like solar cells

Nontraditional Investments: I've heard claims that purchasing solar cells can provide a better return on your investment than stocks. Assuming that's actually the case, what are some other investments that might warrant your money more than investing in the stock market?
