Solar Panels and Wind Turbines - Build Your Own And Save On Your Energy
by: Dave Richard
easy to build a solar panel? How much will it cost me to get the material?
Is it safe? How much can I save on my energy bill? Where do I get the
material? Who will teach me how to do it?
Hi, I am Dave Richards. These are just some of the questions I get every
day. It seems like everybody is becoming more and more interested in
generating their own energy nowadays.... and with good reasons.
With constant climate change we are facing huge challenges and that may be
the reason for you, but we are also in the middle of the most destructive
global economic crisis known to mankind. This maybe the reason for many
others - they want to save money.
No matter your intentions, you can have the benefit of both if you decide
to generate your own free, clean, environmentally friendly energy to power
up your whole household.
There are many websites teaching you to build your own solar panels and
wind turbines. However, not all of them are good. If you do not know which
one to choose you will go round in circles and even lose money. With my
experience in the alternative energy arena, I already reviewed many of
these websites and I found only a few that have valid techniques (see my
website for the latest reviews).
To answer a few of the questions above:
To build your own solar panel is indeed very easy. In fact, my 12 year old
daughter learned to do it in less than two days! It is also a fun project
for the whole family.
Most of the material or parts can be found at your local hardware store
and to build one solar panel can cost you in the region of $90 to $150.
Many of the guides that I recommend promotes safety. In fact, I will not
allow my children to help me build any electricity generating appliance if
it is not safe!
When following the step by step instructions of the experts, you can
initially save up to 50% on your energy bill. With replication, you can
even go "off grid" in a few months. Yes, I'm not paying a dime over to my
energy provider - thanks to my 4 solar panels!
Isn't it time for us, the small guys, to also get involved in protecting
our resources and leave behind something to our children and their
children? It just seems that "big business" talks the talk, but never
walks the walk. Isn't it time for us to determine our own financial
stability and to save where we can instead of waiting for "bailouts" from
Isn't it time for us to take charge? Will you take charge?
