Wind Energy – Using Wind Power For Your Home

Alternative energy sources are becoming more and more important as the failing reserves of fossil fuels drive prices up. No one really knows how long the current reserves of oil will last, but according to experts, they may be gone in as little as few decades. It is wise to start investigating solutions now, when there is still time left. Fortunately, the current developments in the field of renewable energy make it simple enough to build your own wind turbine or a solar power generator.

Why choose wind energy for your home? It has the following advantages:

– Environmentally clean. It produces much less greenhouse gases than conventional sources.

– Renewable (naturally replenished).

– Plentiful. The amount of wind power that can be potentially generated is at least five times as high as the total energy consumption of our entire planet. There will never be a shortage of it.

– Low maintenance costs. Wind turbines don’t require much maintenance, so the only costs associated with wind power are those of constructing and setting up the turbines. Afterward, the costs are negligible – if you ignore equipment costs, wind energy is almost free!

In some countries (such as Denmark), it is used very widely, accounting for up to 20% of total energy output. No wonder it is a great addition to your domestic power generation system. Wind power generally cannot be used as a sole source of electricity (because winds are variable and unstable) but this is usually not a problem, because you most likely have a power grid connection anyway.

Residential wind turbines are very feasible and are not very expensive (About one fifth of what it costed back in 1980). Overall, adding a wind generator to your home power system is an excellent way to decrease your energy bills and make a step on the way towards environmentally-conscious living.

Pre-made wind mills can be quite expensive, with the price tag of $1000 or more. But why pay for them, if you can have a DIY wind power system for less than $200? See our guide to making a low cost home wind power system using readily available components.

To learn more about the methods you can implement ‘free’ power in your home, I highly recommend the Magni System guide, a detailed set of plans for building your own generation system. Best of all, you need not be a super qualified engineer, but rather, enthusiastic, and able to follow well written instructions.

To obtain a free report on free energy in your home, you are welcome to leave your name and email on the right hand side of the screen. Your report will be in your inbox, in a matter of minutes. It is amazing how much you can do nowadays, and not be dependent on your power company. You will save money too!

In addition, as a side note, I highly recommend also following my daily success guide- I have been doing so everyday since July of 2009, and never looked back. I am more confident, and able to create anything I want.  You can, too, with the Success Strategy system.
