Home Energy Generation Techniques To Help Lower High Energy Bills

Are you paying to much money on high energy bills every month? If you would like to see some savings, it would be to your advantage to think about investing in some home energy generation plans.

You can solve some of your problems of high energy bills by using some of the home energy generation techniques that are in use today. These alternate energy sources can help free up the financial burden of these high bills. You can save money on your bills today and in the future and also it will be much better for our environment. It will cost you money to start, but you will get a good return on your investment in a very short time. These sources of energy are very clean and will not damage our environment.

The two most common types of alternative energy are energy from the wind and energy from the sun.

Wind energy

Wind is everywhere, some places stronger and some places lighter, depending on your locality. The future could be wind power for all the energy we would need for the home. The price of energy produced through the use of oil and coal has increased dramatically over the last few years so the wind would be a safe and clean method of producing energy. The one disadvantage of wind energy is that the wind can vary every day. They say that there is less wind in the summer and more robust and consistent winds in the winter. Check out local zoning laws to make sure there are no local laws against wind turbines then make sure there is enough consistent winds in your area to make wind turbines a practical option.

The five main parts of a wind turbine

# 1 — Blades that the wind will turn. When attached direct or indirectly to the turbine, energy
will be produced.
# 2 — The turbine or generator that will produce the electricity.
# 3 — Batteries or banks of batteries that will store the energy and a governor to control the
speed of the generator or turbine.
# 4 — A tail that will allow the generator to track with the direction of the wind.
# 5 — A tower, preferable one that is high in the air to catch as much wind as possible.
Solar Power

Homes that are bathed in an abundance of sun can make very good use of free solar power.

There are six very good reasons for using the energy of the sun.

# 1 — Solar panels are simple to install and most of all they are light in weight making them
ideal for installing on a roof.
# 2 — Solar panels will protect your roof from the elements and also from UV rays.
# 3 — Solar panels will help insulate your home, saving you up to thirty percent on your
heating expenses.
# 4 — The way solar panels are designed they are interlocking and will eliminate the need for
drilling holes in the roof.
# 5 — The way solar panels are designed they will fit any shape roof that you can imagine,
regardless of how large or what shape your roof may be.
# 6 — Solar panels can be attached to any roof without changing anything.
