Creating Your Own Electricity


Visitors: 153

The cost of energy is strangling all of us. Rising fuel costs and higher utility bills make planning and sticking to a budget nearly impossible. You can fight back against rising utilities by creating your own electricity. It is not as difficult as you might think.

Using solar power is one method for cutting into the old electric bill, but initial costs for solar panels and equipment can be quite high. The long term savings may make it worth the investment, though.

A less expensive initial investment is needed when using wind power to create electricity for your home. In fact, you can build your own wind turbine and begin generating power for under $200.

Typically, a wind power system consists of just a tower and five blades to churn out the wind energy. The tower's length will depend on the location of your home. For example, if you live in an area that does not get much wind, you may need a taller tower. If you live in the country with wide open spaces, a shorter tower will suffice.

With the use of the wind generator, the wind energy can be converted into electric energy to power appliances in your home. You can even store the energy for later use, which makes wind generators much more efficient than conventional power systems.

Whether you use the term wind turbine, wind generator or wind mill, they all refer to the same type of machine. It really does not matter what you call it as long as it saves you money! Creating your own electricity will protect your family from power outages and reduce your electric bills. What a nice combination!

Why not learn more about how using wind power can save you $1000's. Check out Creating Your Own Electricity for complete plans and instructions.
