Why should you use alternate energy resources?
Posted on: Tuesday, June 11th, 2013 at 4:22 pm
Due to the tremendous growth of technology in the recent time, the demand of conventional energy resources have increased steeply. But according to scientists around the world, there is limited supply of conventional energy resources in the world. At the present rate of consumption, they will last for only another 45 years. Under such a situation, to save mankind, the use of alternate energy resources is necessary.
Various modern methods of harnessing energy from the non conventional sources like sun, wind, tides, etc are used these days to do away with the threat. Also since the conventional energy resource is limited and nearing its compete exhaustion; the price of the energy has also started increasing heavily. Thus you have to pay more and more every day for the same energy consumption. The electrical utilities running from alternate energy resources are much more energy efficient and reduce your expenses as well.
Also if regular harnessing of energy from the alternative resources is made, then a balance can be achieved and the world would not be facing much threat.
Using Solar-Wind Turbines For Your Home
Posted on: Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013 at 5:21 pm
The importance of the environment cannot be neglected. Usage of fossil fuels not only destroys the ecology but is also not sustainable development. If we consume energy at this rate there will be very little left for the next generations. One such way of conserving energy is to use solar energy. This seemingly endless source of energy is very eco friendly too.
Using solar panel in homes is one way to go. Another way is the usage of wind turbines. Solar power and wind turbines can add up to the energy needs of a home and is very eco friendly. Technology today has combined both solar and wind energy system to give solar wind turbines. Basic wind turbines with solar panels on the blades are called solar wind turbines. These can be installed on rooftops or terraces to harness the best of wind energy as well as solar power.
Wind power for your daily energy needs
Posted on: Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013 at 2:03 pm
Wind power is an energy converted from wind energy, by using the wind turbines. Wind turbines are used for electric power, wind pumps are used for drainage or pumping the water, windmills are used for mechanical power and sails for propel ships. For home usage, small wind power generators are used. Smaller turbines are used on this. It can be placed over the roof or it can be placed in the garden or field. Wind energy is a renewable energy.
• You can earn money by installing the home wind turbines. For producing every kilowatt of electricity you will earn through feed-in Tariff.
• You can cut the costs of electricity bills for your home usage, by using the home wind turbines. Only the initial installation has to be paid.
• Wind energy does not discharge any carbon DI oxide. It is a perfect green technology.
• The electricity can be stored in the batteries for home usage.

Is your long electric bill leaving a major hole in your pocket? Looking for an alternative way out? If so, a fine way of cutting down those hefty electric bills plus keeping it green is by switching to wind energy, an alterative to fossil fuels. You can not only produce it right in your own home, but also sell the excess power to the local power stations to make a few extra bucks.
Unlike fossil fuels, wind energy is a renewable source of energy, this way you can use as much as you want without depleting the environmental resources. It is also very much eco friendly, hence its use doesn’t harm the environment in any possible way. The only thing that you require is the basic raw materials needed to construct the machine required to produce the energy. So, go ahead and take that greener step towards energy production that too at an affordable rate.
Advantage of using green energy
Posted on: Thursday, November 4th, 2010 at 2:49 pm
‘Go green’ is the mantra of today! It cannot be looked upon as a mere slogan but it is in fact, the need of the hour. The use of green energy needs to be adopted and incorporated in each and every sphere of our life.
The different sources of energy such as geothermal energy, wind and solar energy are renewable and sustainable. This implies that we will never run out of these resources as they are available in abundance or can be renewed. The biggest advantage is that the energy generated from these sources has no harmful impact on the environment. Whereas, the use of fossil fuels has caused extremely high levels of carbon emission thus, leading to pollution and global warming. Green energy is more expensive as compared to the conventional energy costs but we must look at the complete picture.
The positive impact of green energy on the environment, human health and overall ecological stability far outweigh the costs involved.
Save the planet with renewable magnetic energy
Posted on: Monday, November 1st, 2010 at 3:56 am
Over the last few years, a lot of research and development has been put into how to generate renewable sources of energy. Wind energy and solar energy has been tried and tested to a great extent – however the biggest disadvantage is the unpredictable climatic condition. Magnetic energy has been on the contrary not navigated into, but will be very fruitful if put into use.
A magnetic generator works in the same pattern of wind energy, the only difference being – the turbines’ movement is not dependent on favorable conditions. The magnets are basically plugged on a fly-wheel, while the repulsive and attractive forces of the magnets take over to create a constant movement of the wheel. This motion is transmitted to the turbine, which in turn generates electricity. An adapter can change the Direct Current to Alternate Current and use them for daily usage.
The best of magnetic energy is that it can produce 400 years worth of energy.

Concerned about the adverse effects of global warming? Want to do your share in saving our planet? If so, a fantastic way of saving fossil fuel is by switching to an alternative source of energy, wind power being an effective one. Not only will you be contributing towards a greener planet but also you’ll be saving a lot of your hard earned money.
Electricity is one of our major day to day needs which we absolutely cannot do without. Now, you may not be aware that to produce electricity, a lot of fossil fuel is burnt. Not only does it pollute our planet more, but also these fossil fuels are non-renewable resources of energy.
Quite unlike fossil fuels, wind power is a renewable source of power and can be abundantly used without harming the planet in anyway. Hence, go ahead and do your part in saving the planet from the harmful effects of global warming.
Sources of Green Energy
Posted on: Wednesday, May 26th, 2010 at 9:47 am
Green or renewable energy as it is known is a good option for most people today given the fact that we have to save our environment. There are many sources of green energy available to man today. Man has been encouraged to use forms of energy that will help the future generations to survive. Wind, solar, water, plant and even tidal power are some of the sources of green energy available for man to exploit.
Technology to put these sources into good use has advanced across generations. Today, people use the most sophisticated machinery to tap energy. Green energy can now be used in many such as production of electricity which is used in households. Sources of energy like fossils have been used to produce fuels for use by mankind. These sources greatly depend on climatic changes so that they can be produced in plenty. A case in point, rain can increase with more availability of trees. Therefore, planting more and cutting less will help to increase rainfall which in turn will enhance hydro energy production.
Residential Solar Power-Green Energy Idea
Posted on: Wednesday, April 7th, 2010 at 4:05 am
Using solar panels is a great way to generate clean and renewable electricity.
A home solar power kit can be purchased and installed by most people. No specialized technical knowledge is required and they are fairly inexpensive. In fact you can spend less than six hundred dollars on certain kits which will power many items in your house such as a laptop, one light bulb, and a 19? television for more than twenty hours, and many other small appliances.
Home solar power kits are also very useful in the event of a power outage. If the power fails your kit will have stored enough electricity in its batteries to give you light, heat, and hot water, and many other modern conveniences until the lights go back on. The amount of electricity available to you will depend greatly on the storage capacity of your batteries. If everyone in the country were willing to run just one appliance using a home generator the savings would be enormous.
How to Build a Wind Generator
Posted on: Monday, March 29th, 2010 at 9:00 am
Capture the power of the wind by building your own wind generator. Get to know the basic steps involved to decide if a wind generator would work for your location and budget.Find an ideal site for the wind generator. In order to work efficiently, the wind generator will need to be positioned 30 feet higher than any obstruction within a 400 foot radius. Determine the prevailing wind direction in the area. Place batteries as close to the generator as possible for maximum efficiency..
Buy or make an anemometer to determine the wind speed at the selected wind generator site. Harness the wind. You’re going to need a rotor to catch the power of the wind and change it into energy you can use. Design a system to move or rotate the tower out of strong winds to protect the wind generator from damage. Develop a system to regulate the power when batteries are fully charged.
