Solar Plane’s Demonstration of Solar Energy Importance Commended by Power4Patriots

A plane powered only by the rays of the sun has completed its round-the-world journey. Power4Patriots officials recommend installing solar panels and wind turbines at residential and commercial locations to keep the electricity on when the grid fails.

Traveling around the world without using a drop of fuel is quite an accomplishment. That’s what a solar-powered plane has managed to do in a round-the-world flight that required more than a year’s time and was recently completed, according to CNBC and other media outlets.

Power4Patriots officials commend this inspirational effort designed to place the importance of renewable energy in the spotlight. The solar-powered aircraft called Solar Impulse 2 began its flight from Abu Dhabi March 9, 2015, and landed in the same place on July 26, 2016, following numerous stops. The carbon-fiber aircraft weighs more than 5,000 pounds, and its wings are equipped with 17,000 solar cells that power propellers and charge batteries. At night, the plane runs on stored power.

Those same Power4Patriots officials have warned Americans that due to the vulnerability of the U.S. electrical grid, homeowners should be prepared for a blackout caused by extreme weather, an electromagnetic pulse or a terrorist attack.

“The key is to be prepared for whatever might cause a disruption of electrical service,” said 4Patriots Partner Allen Baler. “A lengthy blackout in America is a distinct possibility, considering how often our grids are being attacked physically and through cyber space. Only those prepared for a blackout will be in position to effectively deal with it.”

The best way to keep electricity flowing during power outages, and to reduce monthly power bills, is to become independent of the power grid by learning how to generate electricity through the installation of solar panels and wind turbines.

Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines for their residential and commercial properties spend three to four times as much as those who make their own. Installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one’s home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent.

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,” 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.”

Power4Patriots is a series of videos and manuals that teach do-it-yourselfers how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. Cost savings are up to 75 percent.
