the Grid Electricity System To Generate Free Electricity
Until recently, a system for
generating off the grid electricity was something that a scientist
could be expected to try out at home. But it is now a fairly
commonplace and very commercial product. In fact, there are a range of
popular products from solar panels to wind turbines, along with a few
other systems powered by biogas and food-waste. I also learned to build
my own DIY electricity system cheaply using a guide that I will share
more about with you.
In some countries, these systems not only
provide power for home use but also allow consumers to send excess
power back to the grid. Some countries have other ways of encouraging
consumers, like providing subsidies and tax rebates to defray purchase
and installation costs. The main reason for buying it is still the fact
that it cuts down on the utility bills.
let's leave the savings and the grid out of this
discussion, for now. Let's just think of it as a stand-alone system
that allows consumers to generate renewable energy at home. As
mentioned above, the two most popular systems for this are solar panels
and wind turbines.
A solar panel is a simple contraption that is
made of a bunch of solar cells capable of converting sunlight into
electricity. The ordinary panel that can be seen these days on just
about every roof-top is good enough for at least heating water. Add a
few more panels, and it can just as easily fulfill the entire energy
needs of a typical home.
those with bigger power consumption needs, it may
also be feasible to set up a wind turbine. It needs more space than a
solar panel, and a minimum wind speed (around 9 or 10 mph) is generally
required. This is why it works well in a large mansion with grounds big
enough to keep neighbors far from the turbine, or in a rural setting
with wide open spaces.
There are two ways for
consumers to get one of these systems. Buy it outright and get the
company to do the installation, or get a DIY kit. The do it yourself
kit will be cheaper, but will involve a lot of effort and some
knowledge about how the system works. There are also zoning issues and
permits that may be required to be sorted out.
than solar and wind, commercially available
systems include turbines based on bio-gas, micro-hydro power and food
waste, among other things. Whatever the choice, the important thing
here is that it's well past the day when this was a lifestyle choice.
Now it is more of a necessity, and new construction plans include off the grid electricity
There's really nothing against it, except of course the cost and hassle
of installing it. I have personally managed to build my own home DIY
electricity system simply following a DIY guide online.
