Free energy is all around us.
Thanks to the sun, energy hits the earth every day. The reason you pay for energy is, it costs to collect and deliver this energy. The power companies don’t make energy. They collect it or convert it and then deliver it. What if you could collect and convert your own energy? Wouldn’t that be free energy? Wouldn’t the delivery cost be zero? What would it take to be real? Read on.
- Numerous types of energy like sunlight (solar = UV and Infrared), wind, wave, bio-mass, geothermal, fire and countless other labels identify the various forms of energy. Fortunately, energy recovery techniques are becoming less costly and more available to the homeowners.
- The solar industry is in high growth right now. Solar cell cost is dropping every day as solar cell production increases.
- Windmills have been around for hundreds of years and are again becoming more popular. Many farms still use windmills to pump water. Why not electricity? Certain locations around the globe have reliable wind, like the entire ocean coastlines and valleys near mountain ranges. Wind farms are new but will take time. Wind farm power distribution grids need to be rebuilt so that their power can go to non-windy places.
- Bio-mass is a questionable power source as growing bio-material has its own pollution and takes away farmland from food production.
- Geo-thermal is very popular in certain location like Iceland for obvious reasons. For most of us geothermal will help heat our homes.
- All these forms of energy have natural limitations and delivery cost for power companies. Finally, a source of energy that does not come from the sun but is a matter of physics is magnetism. More later.
Homemade energy’s first cost saving is no delivery cost. Capital investment, installation and maintenance cost; however, remain. Those homeowners that have purchased solar panel installation in the pasted for $20,000 or much more have a 25-year payback. That is, the energy savings pay for the installation cost and begins paying the homeowner after 25 years. Wind and geothermal also have substantial payback periods. What if you build and install an energy system yourself. Realize that today, there are kits and guides that show you how. The cost of materials and your time would be your investment and that usually works out to be 1/10 the cost of commercial installation.
Homemade Solar Panel more…
Homemade solar panels build by homeowner’s range from 75 watts (about $98) to 175 watts per panel. By chaining panels together solar panel system can achieve 1000+ watts of power. The basic unit of the solar panel is the solar cell and you need to purchase that. Many distributors of solar cells are selling solar cell kits for $40 to $100 depending on the size of your panel and the grade of the solar cell. Grade A solar cells are top of the line and produce up to 3.5 amps at .5 volts that works out to be 1.75 watts. A kit of 100 solar cells will build a 175 watts panel. Grade B cells have minor imperfection and sell for 80% – 90% of grade A. Grade C are damaged, like corner chips, but functional and cost about 50% that of Grade A. The rest of the panel construction is plywood, glass, solder, usually one rectifier and RTV sealant. Construction time per panel is 1 to 2 days.
Homemade Wind Turbine Generator more…
Homemade wind generators (from $140) consist of blades, a motor / generator, swivel mount with wind vain and a tower. All the materials are available at the hardware store or auto junkyard. The hart of the wind generator is the motor / generator. All motors can be used as generators. You only need to rotate the shaft. The ideal generator will produces 18+ volts at about 300 revolutions per minute (rpm). This is the speed most wind turbines will rotate at in a 10-mile per hour wind. Shaft speed is important. Car alternators and generators are possible candidates. Special motors available on eBay can produce a lot of voltage at low rpm. These special motors will produce up to 48 volts and 450 watts of power in a 20 mile per hour wind. Blades can be purchased or manufactured form 6 inch plastic drain pipe. The blade must be near perfect to work well. The tower can be a simple pole with guide wire support or elaborate like an antenna tower. Construction time is about 1 week.
Homemade Solar Hot Water more…
This is the simplest and yet the most effective (about $50) solution to energy. By preheating your hot water with a homemade solar heater box you can save up to 30% of your energy cost. Hot water is the most expensive energy system in the house after Heating / Air Conditioning). This solar hot water box system consists of a plywood, glass, plastic pipe and sealant. By gathering the infrared sun rays like a green house you can heat water to over 120 degrees even in winter. This is sufficient to shut down your hot water heater. When hot water demand is high, like early morning and washing clothes, the hot water heater will need to run normally. The rest of the day, water is heated in the solar box and stored overnight in the hot water heater. The construction time is about 1 day.
Homemade Solar Air Heaters more…
These are simple devices that heat a room from a material you have around the house or garage for about $30. Put the heater in a sun facing window and it will capture the heat like a greenhouse. Then either with a blower or convection it will heat the room. Temperatures can be over 140 degrees fahrenheit.With this heater you can shut down the home thermostat and save a lot of power consumption. This is a great way to heat out buildings like a chicken coupe, workshop, or storage shed.
Homemade Magnetic Generator more…
This is the newest source of energy and politically charged. Many economies are based on oil and coal that could be threatened by large-scale free energy. What is special about magnet energy it does not need the sun or wind or other natural forces. Therefore; it runs 24/7 all day and night, day after day. It is not interrupted by nature and is more effective than other homemade energy sources by a factor of 2 or 3 times. Its operation is a matter of physics. Prototype systems have been available since the 1990′s. Recently, since 2007, several efforts to commercialize this technology have been started and it could take decades to become popular among nations. As a result, a few homemade energy guides feature this magnetic power technology. By carefully choosing materials and placing magnets in the right relationship with coils, you get a generator. The materials are simple aluminum, cooper, plastic, mica, magnet wire, and magnets. All these are available at the hardware stores, Radio Shack or the Internet. Construction time is about one week. Common household tools are all you need. Building more than one of these generators, in conjunction with deep cycle storage batteries and a power inverter, can power your entire home.
This is Important ~
If you seriously want free energy at home and you are willing to build a device yourself to save cost, you need a guide.
These new guides have all the development worked out and offer step by step instruction. This will save you both time and money. Usually you can be operational in less than a week.
