Alternative Energy Solutions and Advantages of Wind Energy

Fossil fuels have been our source of fuel in the past, but it is now time to look forward helping to preserve a sustainable environment, planning for future generations using alternative power sources.  One of those power sources is wind power electricity.  We have been taking advantage of wind energy for many generations and now we have a modern day wind turbine which can be used on our homes.

Alternative energy solutions is about finding a balance between concerns for our planet and our unpredictable economy. A healthy environment is of utmost importance and we need to take steps so that we will still have it in the future. The flip side to that is watching our electricity bills continually increasing and it’s not always easy to pay each quarter.  Somewhere in there we need to do more than we are to keep our electricity bills down and looking after the environment at the same time.

Which leads us to the idea of installing our own wind turbine.

If you are serious about wanting to have a positive impact on our environment and using alternative power sources to harness the power of the wind, you can do so either purchasing or building own wind turbine.

1. Wind turbines have the capability of lowering electricity bills while preserving the environment.  Having someone install one for you or even installing a ready made one, will also be helping the environment.

2. Building your own wind turbine is another way of keeping the set up costs down.  Find a diy book with clear instructions, give yourself a few days and you can have your own wind turbine proudly displayed on the roof of your home, for a fraction of the price of a ready built one.

3. Consider your power needs, most likely one turbine won’t be enough to replace your power supply, but it will help reduce your overall bill.

4. Setting up a wind turbine will take investment of time and money. Work out how long you plan to stay in the home you are living in.  Keep in mind, having a wind turbine attached to your home adds to market value.

5. Check where you might put a wind turbine on your home or property, making sure it is in a spot that has enough consistent wind to make it workable and profitable.

These 5  tips are just a few things to keep in mind in making your decision whether or not to purchase or build your own wind turbine. It is important to do your research, work out your needs and priorities, and then make an informed decision.

How To Use Alternative Energy Solutions To Protect Our Environment?

Most people I know are concerned for our environment, looking for ways to preserve it for future generations as well as saving themselves some money in the process.  We need to be looking at alternative power sources, using clean, renewable energy.  There are several alternative energy solutions available and the advantages of wind energy seems to be fairly high on the list. Why?

1.  Dirty fossil fuels, like coal, need to be a thing of the past. It is time to move forward, thinking outside the box, to produce non harming wind power electricity.

2. Wind power electricity is an ongoing resource; as long as we have wind we can have wind electricity, there is NO short supply of wind. Some places are windier than others, so will be more of a benefit to those places.

3.  Wind energy is very clean.  There is no negative impact on the environment when using wind as an energy source.

4. If you able to follow instructions, then you can easily build your own wind turbine, harnessing the energy of the wind and saving even more money.

5. Having your own energy source during a blackout  is certainly an advantage of your own wind energy supply.

6. Another advantage of wind energy is to build yourself a small wind farm with the option of selling any surplus electricity you generate back to the utility companies.

7. While one wind turbine might not produce enough electricity to get you off the grid, it will have an impact on your electricity bills. And these days, every bit helps.

I found this great youtube video, which I found most interesting. Although you might not have one like this in your own backyard, it is worth watching, comparing different noises in everyday life. Hope you enjoy it also.

With the rising costs of electricity, it is important that we do all we can to balance the budget.  The environment is equally as important, preserving it for ourselves and for generations to come.

If you’re serious about learning more things you can do to protect our environment, download GREEN ENERGY 101, an excellent ebook giving informaton on different types of alternative energy systems and their components. It covers the concepts of solar and wind energy as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each. Recommended reading.
