Ever since Al Gore's movie “An Inconvenient Truth" hit the screens, an increasing number of people are taking an interest in making use of renewable energy. And much like the oil price crisis has forced people to drive less, rising domestic energy prices - gas/oil and electricity - are forcing people to reevaluate the amount of energy they use in the home.
With the help of modern technology and inventiveness there are now ways whereby people can save both the planet and their wallets, and it's actually a lot simpler than most people would think. Yes, we're talking about renewable energy generated at home.
Principally in the home situation you would setup a system that makes use of either wind power or solar power, or ideally a combination of the two. The materials required to do this are a lot cheaper than most people would expect. For example, it can be possible to setup your own wind turbine for less than $200 US.
Making use of renewable energy in your own home is a fantastic thing to do on many levels. Firstly, it helps you and your country decrease the dependence on fossil fuels. Secondly, after a small initial outlay your energy bills will shrink. Thirdly, there is the opportunity to help power other members of your local community. And lastly, you get to have that healthy glow from knowing that you are doing something worthwhile.
Although there are still some arguments about the validity of the global warming debate, one thing we know for sure is that the world will run out of oil, something that feeds a lot of America's home energy needs. In countries such as the UK home energy prices are already increasing rapidly. By taking action now, you are helping to future proof both your home, the world, and your wallet.
Please, let's see more people using renewable energy. It's simple, it's cheaper than you think, and in certain countries/states you may even be able to eliminate your bill completely - in fact, your supplier may start buying the electricity off you!
