Being able to generate electricity in one’s own home can be beneficial to both you and the planet. Today’s power generation is still predominantly dependent on the burning of coal as the basic source. Though most countries around the world have switched a large percentage of the generation to other safer means this dependence has not been completely eliminated. Thus, the more electricity that is generated the more the coal reserves are depleting and that much more pollution is being caused. But if you have a means to create your own power then a part of the burden will be lifted from the planet and you will get free, unlimited supply of power without causing you or the planet any harm.
There’s also sustainable energy advocate and writer Al Weinrub. He argues that decentralized energy, or putting renewable systems in as many places in a community as possible, generates wealth, spurs economic revitalization and helps adapt to climate change.
Hydrogen is most commonly element found of the earth, usually with other elements. If hydrogen is found alone, can be burned or converted into electricity.
hydropower, or water power, required a bit more research. At first, Tom was exasperated, looking at all the work involved. He had thought he could pile up dirt in the back corner of his backyard, set up a source of water, run it through a pipe to a generator that would not only supply electricity to their house, but also pump the water back up the hill to the source of water, to have it go all over again. What a lot of work!
It is not difficult to construct your own solar panels and the bits and pieces are easily obtainable in even small towns. The same holds true for systems that will produce electricity from wind or water. The trick is to get a detailed plan from which to build your solar panels or other devices.
It is often presumed that self-sufficiency in energy is only for nerds, but this is not true, it is now within the reach of every family or household. If you have lots of money, a solar or wind powered system will cost you about $45,000 and it will take about ten years to recover your investment by getting off the grid. However, you can have the same apparatus for much less than half that amount.
These days, technological advances mean that is perfectly possible to do just that – run your car on water! And it’s not that difficult. Just a quart of waterprovides over 1800 gallons of HHO gas. That’s enough to run your car for months and months!
People and businesses taking advantage of this technology today are the people and businesses of the future. But solar power is here now, and it is here to stay.
