Build Your Own Wind Generator

As the pressures on the environment are taking their toll, it is important that we as a race learn to harness the power and energy that is available all around us rahter than rely so heavily on fossil fuels. What most people don't seem to realise is that there are many other feasible alternatives to living off the grid. Why pay the electricity company a retainer every month and damage the environment when you can save money and protect the environment? It all comes down to a matter of finances, inconvenience, knowledge and the fact that most people envision a huge eye saw sitting in their back garden.

However, it's simply not true. You actually have a number of options at your disposal for living off the grid, but one of the recent emerging markets is the DIY home wind generator. The fact of the matter is - it isn't actually very hard to build your own kits, and if you look in the right places you can pick up guides that will show you how to build one yourself in under a week for under $200.

I don't know about you, but to me that seems like a very good investment already. But there's more. In some local constituencies you could well be eligible for certain tax exemptions for your services to the environment. To find out whether you're eligible, you simply need to talk to your local authorities and find out what the legislation is.

Another main concern is that there won't be enough electricity to power the household. That's not a problem, should you use more electricity than the generator can create, you'll simply be able to roll over to the grid for the time being and of course you'll only have to pay the bill on a utility basis - you only pay for what you use.

I am an evangelist for home DIY energy kits because I really have a passion for it ever since we installed our own years ago. The financial alleviation that comes from knowing that you don't have to pay a couple of hundred dollars every month is just fantastic. The initial outlay for me was quite steep (I didn't hang around until now when it is quite cheap to get this stuff done) and I had to have the professionals in to fit it for me, however I still made quite a significant financial gain over the past few years. The figures, even for me, have worked out favourably.

A number of years ago there was a valid argument that switching to wind power as an alternative source of energy would have been a little too much hassle. At that point there weren't any DIY kits or instruction guides available and your only real path was to get a third party to come and install the facility on your behalf at great cost. Now, however, you should realise that building a home windmill system is really starting to make sense whichever angle you look at it. Apart from anything else, you're doing your bit for the environment and your kids along with other future generations will be very thankful for your actions.

A word of warning. Should you choose to go for the DIY option, you need to make sure you choose one of the reputable guides to take your hand through the process. Some of the products out there assume a certain level of knowledge and make the process really quite difficult, whereas others are completely the opposite such that your kid could probably build it for pocket money!

Home Built Wind Generators
Half a decade ago, if you wanted to have your own domestic renewable energy supply then you were limited to having experts install it in your home for you. This would come at a considerable cost and it seemed to put a lot of people off. Current trends show that more and more are switching to renewable energy resources such as solar power, wind power and geothermal energy in a bid to avoid having to write off $400 of their pay cheque every month on utility bills that historically were just...

DIY Solar Electricity
If you were to look at your yearly outgoing expenses, I'm sure that you'd be shocked to learn how much of what you spend is going straight into the pockets of your energy company of choice. As someone who likes to keep a close eye on the accounts, I figured out that I was spending somewhere in the region of 6 thousand dollars per year on maintenance outgoings such as water, electricity and gas. The fact of the matter is, I'm not rich and I could do with that money for other things; things...

Why Natural Solutions are best to clear your acne
Acne is a well-known and well researched condition and has been for years yet the dermatological world still disagrees on exactly what causes acne and how it can be cured. Patients all over the world are still being handed treatments that are sub-optimal for getting rid of acne. Drugs like roaccutane that clearly do not attack the root cause are being used as a way of covering over acne. This article is my thoughts on why this is irresponsible and how we should be looking for more holistic...

Bulking Up and Training your mind to Succeed
I got on the train the other day and I looked around me at my fellow passengers. I have a habbit of people watching, it's actually really quite enjoyable just to sit back and watch life pass before you. Anyhow, I was thinking to myself how many of them were just happy to be the average Joe. One of my favourite pastimes is reading biographies of famous people that I aspire to. What's quite remarkable amongst each and every one of the stories that I have read is the journey to get to...

How to gain weight the Healthy Way
As I was learning the ropes about bodybuilding as a teenager, I had a lightbulb moment when I realised that I wasn't really eating enough and that was the main thing that was holding me back. So I started to drink a bit more milk, eat an extra sandwich per day and take a few protein shakes more than I was used to. In that first week, I gained a pound of predominantly lean muscle mass, which to me at that time was the greatest thing ever. Of course, once you get into the mindset of doing...

The secret to long drives The Weight Transfer
I don't know about you but I always love stepping up to the golf ball and slamming it 300 yards down the fairway, Fellow golfers always seem to think it's amazing because I'm only five foot 9 and have a very slight build to me. Actually, it's not amazing at all, it's not strength that makes you hit the ball so far - it's technique. If you can master the technique and make it so your timing is absolutely spot on then you'll pretty much be able to hit 300 yard drives every time you step up...

Does Diet Help Acne
Does Diet Affect Acne? Yes it does. Despite some dermatologists that believe the contrary – your diet definitely can affect your levels of acne. The cause of acne is believed to be related to the level of toxins in the blood. If your blood toxicity is too high for your vital filtering organs to handle, then the body has to resort to alternative methods of excreting them, otherwise the toxicity of the body will build up. Therefore the body excretes the toxins through sebum...

Eyesight Correction Natural v Man made
