On average, once every four days, the U.S. electrical grid experiences a cyber attack or a physical attack, according to a recent article in USA Today.
The newspaper’s analysis of federal energy records revealed that the physical and computerized security mechanisms intended to protect Americans from widespread power outages are affected by frequent attacks. Transformers and other critical equipment sit in plain view, protected only by chain-link fencing and a few security cameras. Suspects have never been identified in connection with many of the 300-plus attacks on the electrical infrastructure since 2011.
Power4Patriots officials say the best way to keep electricity flowing during blackouts and reduce monthly power costs is to become independent of the vulnerable U.S. power grid. They recommend that people learn how to generate their own electricity through the installation of 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.
“On average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine,” said 4Patriots Partner Allen Baler said. “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. 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.
