Green Power Easy – The Easy Guide to Solar and Wind Power

Green Power Easy The Easy Guide to Solar and Wind Power

Wind turbines – what is practical and effective ?

Is it only small wind turbines that can practically be purchased in the UK and can be mounted on roofs? I would like to investigate the possibility of a very large company, with many buildings and very high energy bills, harnessing wind power. There is not enough land space for a free standing large turbine but plenty of roof space (I will also look into PV panels but would like to understand wind further first). It is quite an Urban are, but the company has one very tall building)
Thanks for any advice…..

Here is an article that might answer your question from Ben Ford… he has been around for a while and is an experienced inventor and author on green energy .He showed me how cheap it is to build wind and solar… that will be me out there repairing my fence this summer and building solar and wind power!

How would you react if your neighbor told you she was going to build wind turbines? Pretty impressed? The truth is that it is not difficult to build wind turbines and many homeowners are taking the challenge to build their own wind turbines as a cost-effective means to utilizing renewable energies. It isn’t exactly snap-your-fingers easy to build wind turbines either, but with the proper plans and a motivated builder you can be building wind turbines in no time.

It is definitely your best bet, before setting out to build wind turbines, to purchase an instruction manual or guide to follow. Remember that you get what you pay for when it comes to instructions. Make sure you find a manual that is easy to read with detailed instructions. There are also many online resources and forums to help guide you through your wind turbine building process.

To familiarize yourself with the basics, before you get started on your project to build wind turbines, there are four basic components to wind turbines. To build wind turbines you must be familiar with the towers, the batteries, the turbines and the tail and propeller assembly. The tools generally required to build wind turbines are simple as well, you will need wrenches, a saw and a drill. There may also be a need for additional tools depending on how of the wind turbine you will be building yourself.

One part that you will probably be ordering when you decide to build wind turbines is the motor. The motors on wind turbines do require regular maintenance and oiling for continued efficiency, but this is a small price to pay for the excellent energy these systems provide. In addition to the motor, you are definitely going to need a good-sized workspace. Depending on your target energy output, your propellers or blades could get up to 8 feet in diameter (4 ft blades).

It takes a little work to build wind turbines, but there is really nothing overly complicated about the process and generally the process can be fairly inexpensive once you are operational and your electric bills are dropping each month. Building wind turbines is also a fast growing occupation worldwide as technicians are tough to find. So learn how to build wind turbines for yourself and take advantage of the opportunities free electricity and know how can provide.

Solar Energy Careers

Solar Energy Careers

What should I do to start my career in the solar and alternative energy field?

I have a Bachelors in Material Science and Engineering. No particular solar experience. I’ve been looking to get a masters at Univ. of Texas or another Texas University, but I’m not sure which degree would best help me get a job, if at all. What should be my next steps, I’ve been researching for a few days.
How would I go about getting a entry job in the solar industry, what type should i look for?

Check out this company I represent. I think it may suit you well.

Solar Energy Rebates

Solar Energy Rebates

How much does it cost to produce solar energy?

I need exact figures ($$$/W or household). We all know its more ‘expensive’ than fossil fuels.. but how expensive is it? Are there any reliable reports or sources from the interwebs? I have not been able to successfully google anything..

I can tell you the costs etc for my system. I have a 3.74 kwh/dc system, it cost $26K, I got a $10K rebate from my utility, so I paid $16K out of pocket. I will also get a $2K fed tax credit. My summer electric bills went from over $200 down to $20, my winter bills have gone from over $100 to $35. I expect to save about $2K per year. If you estimate that electric rates increase an average of 5% per year I should break even in my 6th year. I expect to save well over $50k during the life of my system. I haven’t zeroed out my bill, but I got a system that maximized my rebates, I would have broken even in about 10 years without the rebate. My city also buys back all the unused energy, so as rates go up I will save more.
