Alternative Energy for the Home

The trend toward homes that are powered by alternative energy sources, ranging from wind turbines and solar collection cells to hydrogen fuel cells and biomass gases, is one that needs to continue into the 21st century and beyond. We have great need of becoming more energy independent, and not having to rely on the supplying of fossil fuels from unstable nations who are often hostile to us and our interests. But even beyond this factor, we as individuals need to get “off the grid” and also stop having to be so reliant on government-lobbying giant oil corporations who, while they are not really involved in any covert conspiracy, nevertheless have a stranglehold on people when it comes to heating their homes (and if not through oil, then heat usually supplied by grid-driven electricity, another stranglehold).

As Remi Wilkinson, Senior Analyst with Carbon Free, puts it, inevitably, the growth of distributed generation will lead to the restructuring of the retail electricity market and the generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure. The power providers may have to diversify their business to make up for revenues lost through household energy microgeneration. She is referring to the conclusions by a group of UK analysts, herself included among them, who call themselves Carbon Free. Carbon Free has been studying the ever-growing trend toward alternative energy-using homes in England and the West. This trend is being driven by ever-more government recommendation and sometimes backing of alternative energy research and development, the rising cost of oil and other fossil fuels, concern about environmental degradation, and desires to be energy independent. Carbon Free concludes that, assuming traditional energy prices remain at their current level or rise, microgeneration (meeting all of one’s home’s energy needs by installing alternative energy technology such as solar panels or wind turbines) will become to home energy supply what the Internet became to home communications and data gathering, and eventually this will have deep effects on the businesses of the existing energy supply companies.

Carbon Free’s analyses also show that energy companies themselves have jumped in on the game and seek to leverage microgeneration to their own advantage for opening up new markets for themselves. Carbon Free cites the example of electricity companies (in the UK) reporting that they are seriously researching and developing ideas for new geothermal energy facilities, as these companies see geothermal energy production as a highly profitable wave of the future. Another conclusion of Carbon Free is that solar energy hot water heating technology is an efficient technology for reducing home water heating costs in the long run, although it is initially quite expensive to install. However, solar power is not yet cost-effective for corporations, as they require too much in the way of specialized plumbing to implement solar energy hot water heating. Lastly, Carbon Free tells us that installing wind turbines is an efficient way of reducing home electricity costs, while also being more independent. However, again this is initially a very expensive thing to have installed, and companies would do well to begin slashing their prices on these devices or they could find themselves losing market share.

Solar Panels – How to Make a Homemade Solar Panel

www.EnergyBrainiac.com – How to Make a Homemade Solar Panel Solar panels, unlike before, are cheap and easy to install with great efficiency. With this advent, you can save big money as well as help save the environment. A DIY kit is available and has an easy to follow instruction with them. What you need is some simple tools and you’re done. Here is your guide to make a homemade solar panel 1. First, you must know the loads of your solar panel and the package that is affordable to you. One watt of solar panel module will coast you about and a 200 watts module is around 00. If you need more power, you can connect this to form a collector to produce your desired power needs. Electrical connections are made in series to achieve a desired output voltage and/or in parallel to provide a desired amount of current capability. 2. After selecting the solar panel modules, you need a charge controller which is an important system component that regulates the voltage generated by the solar panel. This will regulate your power and provide protection to the batteries from being over or under-charged. 3. Next, you need a solar inverter this will convert 12 volt DC (direct current) from solar panel to 125 volts AC (alternating current) which will feed your appliances. Some high end inverters combine an inverter, battery charger and dual transfer switch in one package. 4. Batteries are needed if there is no sun or there is a blackout in your area. Typically, lead acid batteries are

energy-solarpanels.com Electricity is something that we cannot exclude form any part of our lives. The increasing population is putting great pressure on the system all over the world. There are so many countries looking for new sources of electricity. Solar panel can be a great source of electricity and meet the demand of the increasing population. Sun is the most powerful source of energy. The amount of solar power delivered by sun is enormous and it is more than we will ever need. But sun delivers energy which also contains heat and water. We cannot use the energy directly to power a computer. This is why we use solar panels. Solar panels can help us to refine the solar energy and convert it into usable electricity. It is found that if we can build solar panels to cover even 1% of Sahara desert, we will be able to generate enough electricity to run the whole world. You can build solar panels for your home and become self dependent for the supply of electricity. Moreover, as a member of planet earth, we have a duty towards the Mother Nature. We have to keep her alive for keeping the human race alive. Solar panels are environment friendly and you can contribute towards the nature and at the same time meet your family’s electricity demand if you build your own solar panel. If you build solar panel for your home, you will be contributing in keeping the environment free from harmful gases. Producing electricity by using Solar panel can reduce the expense of electricity to a

Get the shirts: bit.ly Facebook: facebook.com Buy a solar panel here: amzn.to For this to work you will need a 6v Solar Panel and a Female USB connector. Solder the USB connector to the negative and positive contact points on the Solar Panel and you are ready to go. It is really that simple. You may not want to leave the phone or Mp3 player plugged in at night because the power may drain out of the phone when no light is present. This is because we did not regulate the current of power. See you soon!

DIYWind.BestReviewed.Net – If you are looking for a guide that will show you how to build a homemade wind generator, here is the most complete guide you will find. I’ve tried other plans that show you how to build home wind turbines, but they don’t offer nearly as much as this guide. You can learn to build turbines for as little at 0 or so that would cost over 0 for the same amount of power production if you bought it in stores or ordered a commercial generator over the Internet. Generators don’t take much maintenance once they are set up. These generators are well-engineered to take powerful winds and to produce a lot of power from them. It is the easiest way I know to build homemade wind turbines that will be inexpensive while also producing a lot of power. Check it out at the link above and you can totally eliminate your power bill by building one yourself! PS This is a commercial guide to build wind and solar power and it costs a bit of money.
