Is A Solar Panel Electrical System Right For You?

Until approximately a hundred years ago in the West, people only had recourse to renewable energy for heat and light for their homes. They burnt wood and sometimes coal or peat (OK, fossil fuels) and got up when the sun came up and went to bed with the sun too. In, fact a large part of the world’s population still lives like that. Continue reading

Kick The Grid Into Touch By Making Your Own Solar Panels

How would you like to come off the electricity grid? What a dream, eh? Sadly, it will remain a dream for the majority of people because the cost of having solar panels installed professionally hardly warrants the cost. Many experts calculate that it can take well over 10 years to recoup the cost of the professional installation of solar panels. This is way beyond the horizons of most home owners, who would expect a break-even point of three to five years. This is not going to happen in the near future, even with the rapidly rising cost of electricity. Continue reading

What To Know Before Purchasing A Home Solar Electricity System

The replacement of traditionally created electricity with electricity made from renewable or different resources is now a viable alternative for many people in the Western world. The main stumbling block is the preliminary expense, which is why solar electricity is still not a practical affair in most other, hotter, countries. Continue reading

Assembling Your Own Solar Panels

Everyone these days is conscious of the issues of climate change, or as the boffins used to call it, global warming. It appears that even those people who call themselves experts do not know what is taking place. It is not very heartening. However, what everyone does know, even without self-styled expert advice, is that the rate that we are using fossil fuel up is unsustainable, that that means that prices will go up and that it looks like the West is on the slippery slope. Continue reading

It Is High Time To Make Use Of Renewable Solar Energy

The very life of every living thing on Earth is dependent on the Sun. Without the Sun, we would not have animal or plant life, which supplies us with food and companionship. Without the Sun, we would have died out in former days, without the Sun these days, we may last a while, but it would not be much of a life. Continue reading

Get Yourself A Wind Turbine For Free Electricity

I am sure that you would like to come off the electricity grid. Who would not like to put a stop to those rising monthly bills? The trouble is that no one is stepping up to the plate to tell us how to do it. Politicians are just starting to ring the alarm bells even though they have known about the predicted oil shortage for decades – just as we all have. Continue reading

Can I Use Solar Panels For Home Or Business Energy?

It is almost high noon on the energy front. Oil, the substance that is used to create most of the world’s electricity is becoming too dear to use to produce electricity for home consumption. Even if you believe that there are lakes of oil left, which might be true, the main reason they have not been exploited yet is because it is too expensive to get out. The only thing that makes it a going concern is the high price of oil on the market. Continue reading

Why Not Construct A Wind Turbine For Free Electricity?

Have you ever thought about making your own wind turbine? It is not as easy as making your own solar panels but it is not hard either. Making your wind turbine look nice is a bigger problem than generating electricity from it. The first thing you have to do is invest in a set of plans to make a wind turbine and then set about purchasing all the parts. Continue reading

Harvesting The Power Of The Sun To Create Solar Electricity

Free energy … What a dream, eh? One of the biggest household burdens is the cost of energy. The cost of energy is often 40% of total domestic bills. So, free energy would assist every family that is not rich a great deal. However, free energy is a pipe dream, is it not? There is alternative energy, that is non fossil fuel based energy, like nuclear energy, but that is not low-cost either. Continue reading
