A growing number of people residing in California are switching to solar energy for their energy needs, according to NBC-TV affiliate — KCRA-TV in Sacramento.
Currently, solar represents less than 1 percent of energy capacity worldwide, but solar photovoltaic panels constitute the fastest growing renewable energy technology in the world since 2000.
Power4Patriots officials say the best way to lower power costs and keep electricity flowing during blackouts is to become independent of the vulnerable U.S. power grid. They firmly recommend that people learn how to generate their own electricity through solar panels and wind turbines.
Power4Patriots was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages. Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own, environmentally friendly sources of energy.
Power4Patriots is a recently updated series of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. The system includes six videos demonstrating how to build a solar panel, including choosing the right materials, finding the right site for the system and avoiding costly mistakes, as well as two instruction manuals with step-by-step, illustrated directions. It also includes four videos and two instruction manuals detailing how to build a wind turbine.
4Patriots Partner Allen Baler said that, on average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine. The time commitment to build a solar panel ranges from two to four hours, with the first one requiring more time than subsequent panels. A wind turbine requires a handful of hours to build.
“Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines spend three to four times that amount,” Baler said. “Installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one’s home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent.”
Patriot Headquarters publishes articles, videos and news to help patriots become more self-reliant and independent from government and big business.
