The planet is taking strain because of the energy that is used and the pollution, which results. If the planet is important to you, you will want to look at alternative sources of electricity. If you are wondering how do you create free energy for your home, just keep on reading. It is easier than it seems. Many people use traditional sources that you they a lot of money for, when they can utilize it freely from nature.

Traditional electricity from the main grids comes from coal-run generators or from nuclear power. Coal, apart from being costly, is toxic to the environment and will not last forever. The leftovers from the kind of nuclear reaction that provides this type of energy are the most toxic substances known to man. It is not good for the environment and it is not good for the people.

While there is an initial outlay with using DIY solar panels and wind turbines, the energy is free after that. There is no pollution and it will last for as long as there is sun and wind. There will always be wind and sun. You will no longer have costly electricity bills and you will lower your carbon footprint.

It is quite simple to build a solar panel. Solar cells are wired together. The solar cell does all the work of converting sunlight into energy, which can be used to power electronics, appliances, lights, hot water and heat. The materials and tools required for the job are available from most hardware stores and cost around $200. Additionally, you do not need special skills.

Solar panels capture photons (energy produces from light) from the sun. Crystalline silicone cells conduct the electric current. The voltage can be connected directly to either the building or home, or it can be stored in batteries for future use.

There are many ways to create free energy for your home if you want to lower your carbon footprint and access energy free.

There are two types of wind turbines, with a variety of subtypes. These are the vertical and horizontal designs, which use the wind differently to harness energy. Horizontal turbines are the more common design, which uses an angled propeller to create friction when the wind is blowing. The vertical design spins on a center point at ground level. The production system is quite similar in both horizontal and vertical designs. I have personally managed to build my own home DIY renewable energy system by following an online system which you can find out more about at my website link below.
