Homeowners have a lot of worries, especially when it comes to paying their electrical energy bill. Rates are always rising and many are speaking of a looming energy crisis. Our two main forms of energy, coal energy and chemical energy, are also heavy pollutants not to mention the fact that they are both non-renewable resources. Energy conservation is a must, but many homeowners are only interested in finding affordable ways to heat their homes.
Spend some time recalling the things that brought you together and what you used to love about each other. Spend time together doing things that you both love to do. Needless to say, quit spending time chewing on the things that irritate you; put up or shut up!
In short, the time is now. The federal government is on the verge of cracking down on the energy industry. In order to meet changing federal regulations, it’s crucial that you produce power. And with so many biomass advantages, you’d be hard pressed to find a better alternative.
Collecting the wind is another source of power. You will need a wind turbine – something that looks like the propeller of an airplane that sits on top of a tall tower that’s anywhere from fifty to 100 feet tall. The wind blows, making the blades of the turbine move and spin a shaft that runs from the hub of the turbine to the rotor of a generator. The generator spins and creates electricity (again, a direct current). The inverter turns that current into alternating current.
The first hydro power plant in the United States was introduced in 1882. It was placed in Wisconsin. Most people do not realize that a great deal of the early electricity and power in the United States once came from such hydropower plants. In 1940 approximately half of the electricity used came from this source. Later it was replaced by the use of coal.
Garbage is inexhaustible it seems and a growing concern for municipalities. I grew up on Long Island and back in the forties they use to dump it in a big pile and light a match to it. The resultant stink was quite memorable. Growth of Nassau and Suffolk counties of course led to some deep thinking. There are old sand mines they started to dump in but they stunk too. Several towns tried several types of incinerators which was an improvement lost their licenses due to emissions. Finally they built 2 large plants that used technology developed to destroy chemical weapons to burn the trash and use the heat to make steam to run generators. They charge to unload the trash then turn around and sell the power.
So, why need to pay huge amounts for electric bills when you can generate your own power? Yes, you can. All you need is a little investment for the installation of panels but you will get the benefits for the rest of your life. Or maybe, you can invest to buy a solar power to at least reduce your power consumption at home. Just imagine how it feels to pay just single digits for electricity and helping the environment at the same time. If you are really serious of generating your very own power, then there’s no other way but to install a solar panel in your house.
