We all have heard about home made energy. It is a very cheap and eco friendly way to create energy at your home. The materials you would require in installing these types of energy would be easily available in all the shops. You really do not need to spend thousands of dollars on commercial energy if you yourself create the energy through solar panels, windmills etc.

The most important benefit of this home made energy is that it does not emit extra carbon from your home like the commercial energy system does. People who are preserves and love the environment are the ones who mostly use this energy. It reduces their electricity bill as well as it is considered cheaper.

In winters you can use the heat of sun instead of using electric heaters and same is the case in summers where there are several ways to keep your home cool without using air conditioners. Many of the people who do not want to install home made energy system at their home buy the energy from the plants that produce this energy.

In this way, they get clean source of energy without even installing a system of this energy at their home. The most common way of creating home made energy is solar panel. Solar panels absorb the energy from the sun and produce electricity. Many hotels use these solar panels as a means of electricity. They place these panels at the top of the building where they could directly get sun’s rays and help us reducing electricity.

By this way they save a lot of money they had to spend in commercial energy system. The main source of solar panels energy is the sun. It might not work on the days when the sun does not come, especially at the time of rain.

Homemade energy in a review

February 15, 2012 by Bryan Adam  
Filed under Environment

Bill Ford first initiated the idea of homemade energy. This eBook was of a meager price and it even offered a 60 day money back guarantee. Many used it just because the idea of solar panels and the windmill generators was too different and appealing.

Even then the different idea of self made energy seemed a bit too expensive. It was too obvious that a self sustaining home power would have to be with a small give up of a fortune.

His eBook offered a do it yourself technique which meant buying to assembling and the final execution. In anyway, it is amazing to report that Bill Ford gave such convenient and easy steps that it was impossible not to achieve the target with success. It is said to be so simple that even pre-teenaged children can complete it with ease.

The homemade energy solution given by Bill Ford is amazing because it gives full power to your home without one extra penny. Although the initial charges may seem a bit too much, but the end result is so satisfying that you wouldn’t mind paying the extra buck. When you really consider it, Bill Ford gives some ideas that are really worthy, even if you’re not that handy.

The cost of the material for solar panel and generator is as minimal as possible so as not to burden the people who desire to use it. The solar panel approximates to about $200 and the windmill generator was even cheaper – not more than $100! Calculate the actual price, the one that is given in the market and you will get to know that this solution costs a lot less and you are getting the best price.It is the convenient way to self produce the energy that you utilize in your homes. These are done by solar panels as well as windmill generators.

Beginners Guide To Solar Power

February 7, 2012 by Liam Raikes  
Filed under Science

The function of a solar cell is very simple. It takes light, and it makes it into electricity. It’s very simple, but that doesn’t mean it is easy. Imagine if you were tasked to create something that could actually do that, most people wouldn’t know where to start. Well, by the end of this article, you’re not going to be an expert in how to build solar panels, but you should at least understand the principles involved.

How Does Light Become Electricity?

To answer this question of how it is that light becomes electricity, we have to be more clear about exactly what light is and what electricity is. There isn’t room to go into detail about this of course, but we can get a general idea.

A Photon

The most important thing to know about light when it comes to solar panels is that it can be viewed in two ways, as being made up of waves and as being made up of particles. In fact both is true, which is a bit strange, but this is something that has come out of quantum physics.

In terms of solar cells, the most useful way to think about light is as being made up of particles of light. That is what a photon is, it is the name for a particle of light. If you’re wondering how light can be thought of as being particle based, in terms of waves it is the smallest packet of waves that you can get (if that makes it any clearer!).

What Is Electricity?

Electricity consists of the uniform flow of electrons in a substance. The substance has to have certain qualities which allows this to happen, they have to be made up in a particular way. When the conditions are right, then we call that material conductive, because it can conduct electricity. This applies to metals mostly.

There is another type of material though which conducts electricity in a slightly different way. It still has to do with the electrons flowing, but this flow can be created by the existence of “holes” in which there should be an electron. This hole will attract an electron, so that is how electricity can flow as well. Substances that do this are called semiconductors.

Solar Cells

With this information, the way that a solar panel actually works can be described more easily. The first thing to know is that they are made of a semi-conductive substance, often silicone. The important thing about this is that when a photon hits the semiconductor which the cell is made of, it pushes an electron out of its orbit and this creates a “hole” in it, like the ones described above. This is what causes electricity to flow.

It’s not quite as simple as getting a semiconductor and hooking it up to some wires though. There are actually two halves, one of which has to be negatively charged and the other half has to be positively charged. In their normal state, these halves are balanced, but when light hits them the balance is upset and that is what makes the electrons move in a uniform way.

How The Solar Electricity Is Made Useful For Your House

A little bit more work has to be done before the electricity can be used in a house though. It comes out as direct current (DC) but houses run on alternating current (AC) so it has to be converted before it can actually be useful.

On the way to the converter, however, it makes a stop in a battery. This is a DC battery, and that’s where the electrical energy from the solar cells are stored, so that it can be used when needed.

The Growing Interest In Photovoltaic Energy

January 14, 2012 by Anne Harvester  
Filed under Technology

As the world continues to search for new and reliable sources of power, photovoltaic energy has been garnering more and more attention. With most experts predicting a steady decline in available fossil fuel resources, as well as rising costs, this new technology may offer one of the best ways to provide power to an increasingly high-tech world.

More commonly known as PV, solar power is a clean way to create electricity. It utilizes the power of our sun and converts sunlight into electricity that can be used to power nearly every aspect of modern life.

A system for creating this electricity begins with a solar cell. Groupings of cells form modules, several of which can unite to create a solar array. When light gathering and conversion equipment is added to an array, a solar system is formed and electricity can be generated.

When it comes to renewable energies, this system offers great promise. The technology’s primary source of power, the sun, has billions of years of life left. Thus it is a truly renewable resource. It is also one that can be adapted as needs change, wit providers scaling their systems to accommodate increased demand.

The clean nature of this technology is appealing to environmentalists who often oppose the creation of other power creation systems, and who worry about the greenhouse gases released when fossil fuels are used.The prices on these systems are lower than they were years ago, which makes them increasingly attractive to people of all walks of life.

There is no question that these types of renewable resource technologies will play an ever-larger role in meeting the world’s power needs as time goes by. As one of the most reliable and safe ways to meet those needs, photovoltaic energy systems are almost sure to continue to gain in popularity.

Photovoltaic energy is capturing a lot of attention. We would like to tell you more about photovoltaic solar right now.

How A Photovoltaic System Can Benefit Anyone

January 13, 2012 by Anne Harvester  
Filed under Technology

Despite the obvious benefits of the average photovoltaic system, there are few people who truly understand this technology. Often referred to as PV, these solar energy systems serve as alternatives to conventional fossil fuel energy and are considered by many to be a promising form of energy for the world’s future.

Solar energy is created by using cells that convert sunlight into electricity. Because each cell generates only a few watts on its own, these units are amassed into modules of cells and arrays of modules. Other components then direct the arrays and convert the sunlight to produce the desired electricity.

Solar energy is a proven method for electricity generation. There are many systems in use today that power a variety of electrical systems. Currently, solar power is used in many small electronics, as well as appliances and the energy needs of many buildings. Most experts agree that larger systems could provide power for towns and cities.

After the initial investment, these systems provide a cost benefit that simply cannot be ignored. Other than maintenance costs for the arrays and other equipment, solar energy is free. As for the initial setup prices, there are often government incentives that can dramatically lower those costs as well.

The technology is odorless, quiet, and environmentally friendly. It is also ideal for homes and other buildings that are located far from cities and thus remain detached from any centralized power grid. And for areas close to the grid, there is always the opportunity to sell excess energy back to the electrical company.

Though large energy needs must be met with large systems that require a great deal of land and space, the technology is rapidly advancing to the point where even that drawback will soon be eliminated. Nevertheless, the current benefits of any photovoltaic system can make the technology a worthwhile part of any consumer’s energy plan.

Filed under Book Reviews

With increasing awareness about the use of fuel efficient means of transport and the methods on how to reduce the effects of global warming, it has become a necessity to find out methods for the production of new forms of renewable energy.

The use of fossil fuel can conk out at any time. It is also a necessity to store some for the future generation. Hence the need for homemade energy sources has become the need of the hour.

Many engineers together created the complex solar panel which runs purely on the light from the sun and can be used to heat water and also produce electricity. Instead of having to invest many thousands of dollars on good solar panels, one can easily make these a home. One will have to purchase small solar chips which are available at dirt cheap prices on the net. Then one can start building the solar panel with a little bit of help from the house. The solar energy is stored in the battery backup which is attached to the system. The energy can be used to run many electrical appliances at home and also to heat water in the house.

Many a time, the homemade energy has been found to be traced back into the power grid. Wind energy is also used as a source of homemade energy. In places where the wind velocities are high, one can make good use of the wind to make electricity. The instrument is a bit costly for the installment, and hence a group of people together can set it up as an investment and then one can get power through this source to all the grids.

With the use of homemade energy sources, one can easily save on the electricity bill and in certain homes, one can stop external electricity all together.

Homemade energy – The need of the Hour

December 20, 2011 by Bryan Adam  
Filed under Business

Excessive use of electricity to run all home appliances, is a waste of energy. Electricity, supplied to our homes, is produced through thermal generation, from fossil fuels, hence these are exhaustible. Frequent power cuts to save energy for future use have become very common. It is time that one tries to use more homemade energy sources to run the appliances.

Awareness about lack of fossil fuels has increased among the public and hence has become the need of the hour to invent useful methods of producing homemade energy. The solar power and wind power can be utilized completely to create energy. There are some systems developed by people, which makes it easy to develop energy at home. Some people can even cut down their electricity bill to nil and some supply electricity back to the grid.

The solar energy can be harvested by means of solar panels. Solar panels bought from outside can be very costly, hence one can make a solar panel at home. It is a very simple procedure, which is available on the net. Small solar chips are available on the net at dirt cheap rates, and hence can be purchased very easily. The solar energy can be stored in a battery backup and can be then used to heat up the water and for other purposes.

In areas where there is high wind velocity, a community or a group of people can take on the installation charges of a wind mill and establish one. The establishment of a wind mill can be done at home too, by placing a wind vane at home and then directing the win into a small turbine which produces electricity.

It is necessary to take the necessary steps towards creating better sources of homemade energy , so that the future generation has enough power to survive on.

Solar Energy Advantages

November 20, 2011 by Liam Raikes  
Filed under Environment

If someone told you that the future of the human race depended on our using more solar energy, you might think that they were crazy. If that were the case, then surely the politicians would be making more fuss about it, surely there would not be objections on aesthetic ground to sites being created, not if it is so important. However, through applying a little bit of logic, we can see that it is actually that important.

The reason that solar power, and indeed all forms of renewable energy, are so important is because of the drawbacks of the alternatives. At the moment most of the energy that we produce comes from fossil fuels. These are fossil fuels which pollute the atmosphere and which, one day, will run out. Actually though we will have problems before they run out, the way that the economy is able to run is that it has got access to cheap energy. As soon as we start running out of conventional energy sources then, it is going to become more expensive and the economy could completely collapse, leading to chaos.

The only way that we can avoid the problems caused by using non-renewable energy is by transitioning quickly to renewable energy. At the moment the most popular and widely used of this kind of energy of is solar power. This comes in the form of solar panels.

The way that solar panels are constructed is that they are formed of a collection of solar cells. To form a lot of energy, you can put the PV panels together as well, and make a solar farm. Or they can make solar cells which are actually extremely small, and they can be put in pocket devices, like calculators. The way that individuals can most effectively get involved, however, is by getting the ones that go on the roof of your house, so that you can power your home.

This is where a true sort of democracy, of power in the hands of the people, comes into play. There is no need to plead with the government to build solar power plants, or to encourage corporations to do so, all you have to do is buy solar panels for your own home. When enough people do that, our energy problems will be all but over.

The reason that everyone has not already had a solar installation, however, is the expense. To have solar panels installed on your roof is quite expensive. That’s why the government has introduced a scheme whereby you actually get money paid to you for the energy you produce with your solar cells. Not only will you be making the savings on your electricity bill then, you’ll also be making extra money. This makes them more profitable, and a more viable financial investment.

When we are talking about something as serious as the human race being wiped out potentially, considering financial matters might seem rather crude and inappropriate. However people cannot afford to ignore their finances, because that is what allows us to survive today. And of course if we did not survive today, then we would no future to speak of in any case.

The best thing about solar energy is probably that you have the opportunity to directly get involved in using it. You can stop being a part of the problem, reduce your carbon footprint, and make money at the same time when you get solar panels for your property.

Developing A Residential Solar Project

November 19, 2011 by Gordon Zwillenberg  
Filed under Technology

Solar Power in Residential Areas could cutback or eliminate your electric bill. Solar Energy is clean energy, there’s no damaging waste or residue. Solar Power may help us to reduce our dependency on foreign oil.

For a Residential Solar Project, solar power is collected from solar cells that are mounted on solar panels. For a house in the United States, the solar panels are required to face south – in the direction of the sun.

What Is A Residential Solar System Comprising Of?

A Residential Solar System comprises of the following four portions:

1. Residential Solar Panels – protect and keep the solar cells in place. The solar cells collect the solar energy. The solar panel has a Plexiglas or glass cover to protect the solar cells.

2. Regulator – manages the amount of amperage created from the solar panels. This amperage remains constant during the day.

3. Rechargeable Batteries – They store the surplus solar energy for night use. The batteries have to be installed inside a battery box to shelter against any power surges or battery leaks. The batteries are regularly lead-acid.

4. Inverter – switches DC power to AC. Use the modified sine wave version; since, it can covert more efficiently and is cheaper to buy.

How Can You Develop Solar Power For Your Site?

In developing Solar Power for your site, you might follow this procedure:

1. Do Your Research – What type of system would you enjoy? For a residence, solar cells with solar panels may be your energy source. What is the cost amount? Find out what a contractor might need. Don’t be shocked. You can decrease the cost by building your own solar panels.

2. You Need to Access The Site. Do you have adequate property and buildings to build and store solar panels? Can your roof, facing south, have enough room to carry the panels?

3. Figure your cost again. Do you need to build or purchase residential solar panels? What is the new contractor’s estimate? Check your government agencies (county, state and federal) for funding and bonuses to build a Solar Project.

4. If you are building your own solar panel, you want to buy a kit. Go to www.greenenergy100.com. The vendors are listed on the right column. You may select the vendor for you.

What Should You Do, Before You Get Started?

Once you have picked a vendor and before you get started, you require to:

1. Estimate and Purchase Your Own Materials

2. Create A Work Area

3. Start Your Work to Create the Solar Panels

What Can I Do To Finish The Project?

You possibly could complete your solar energy project with these two simple steps. They comprise of:

1. You possibly could also obtain your own residential solar panels. Obtain bids on the fabrication cost.

2. Contractors. You may need two contractors:

a. Green Energy Contractor will install the residential solar panels and set up the wiring up to the meter box.

b. A Certified Electrician will bind the wiring into the meter box and align the project with the local utility company.

What Might You Do, Once The Project Is Finished?

With the Solar Power Project complete, you could now spend less money on your electric bill. With the work complete, you can apply for funding and incentives.

You will have power during the occasional power outages, regional blackouts and inclement weather. Solar Power furnishes endless power to take you through the troubled times.

Where Can You Obtain The Materials?

For the materials, you can get most of the materials at electronic stores (Radio Shack), Home Improvement Stores or Hardware Stores. The solar cells will need to be ordered off the internet via E-bay or a reputable company.

You Can Do It!

With a good kit, you can build our own solar panel in one weekend. A high-quality kit comprises of step-by-step instructions, list of materials and tools required. Most of the materials and tools, you may purchase locally.

Great luck with your project!

Going Green – Yes, It’s Possible

October 23, 2011 by Steve King  
Filed under Environment

With global warming becoming worse every year, a lot of people are wanting to start doing their part to help save the earth. The problem is that nearly all people suppose that it is very time consuming or even pricy to start living green. This article will share wit you a few easy ways to incorporate green living into your life now.

The first thing that we all can do is to recycle. Numerous people continue to place glass and aluminum items in their normal garbage even though recycling is not that hard to do nowadays. In the United States, it’s easy to locate a trash service that offers glass and aluminum recycling choices. A lot of still continue to toss these items even though recycling bins are not hard to find. If you take a few seconds to rinse out the cans and bottles and place them in the recycle bin, you will be on the path to helping the environment.

One other huge waste product is newsprints. The average individual throws his daily paper in the bin once they’ve finished reading it. Nevertheless there are so many other things you can do with an old newsprint once you finish reading it. You may not realize that newspapers are wonderful for window cleaning. If you’re tired of seeing little white fragments and streaks on your windowpanes after you wipe them clean with paper towels and cleaner, try using old newspapers instead. Likewise, many towns and villages and even boy scout and girl scout troops have paper drives. Simply collect all of your old papers, pile them, and call to see if the paper drive groups will come to your home and pick them up.

Walking instead of driving the car is another simple way to incorporate green living into your life. Lots of people regularly drive short distances simply to purchase one thing at their local mini market. You can save time and gasoline money, and also help lessen air pollution, by walking to the store instead.

And while we are on the topic of saving fuel, remember to car pool each time you get the opportunity and also begin cutting down your lawn every couple of weeks rather than every week. While you may want to keep your lawn nicely trimmed down, letting it go for an extra week between mows shouldn’t change the look that much. And if you genuinely want to help the environment, see if you can obtain one of those old-fashioned manual lawn mowers that mows the lawn with the spinning blades. Many hardware shops still sell this sort of mower.

There actually are numerous ways people can start living green, they merely have to make a few alterations in their lifestyle and they can start helping our planet instead of destroying it. Browse the Internet and you can get a wealth of great information on this issue.
