Alternative Energy, A Beneficial Investment?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It was the 1980’s. Alternative energy was here but expensive to apply. Available systems were usually set up in homes for those who could afford them. But even then, their investment in renewable energy usually paid for itself within seven to eleven years.

Today, alternative energy for the home makes much better sense due to the fact that ordinary people such as you and I can afford one of these systems and it does not call for the special knowledge of an engineer to install it. A lower cost system to offset the rising cost of electricity.

A windmill generator can pay for itself in less than two years. If you build and install one yourself with the assistance of an electrician, it can pay for itself in a matter of months.

However, there will be times of the year when a windmill generator does not produce enough electricity. For instance, during the dog days of summer there is usually not enough wind to produce the amount of electricity required for a residential home. The usual electric utilities will still be required during this time.

The electricity produced by a windmill generator or any alternative energy generator for that matter is DC. (direct current). This will have to be converted to AC (alternating current) via a converter box. Then the electric can run to your meter. At times of the year when the windmill generator produces plenty of power, your meter will actually run backwards. This in turn will produce credits for you from the electric company.

When a generator produces more electricity than you use, the electric co. will buy your excess electric, in the form of credits. But don’t expect to get a check in the mail from your utility company.

You probably know that wind is not the only renewable energy resource. There is also solar energy, which is most commonly known. Hydropower uses water flow to produce electricity and magnetic forces can produce perpetual motion, when used on a generator perpetual motion creates electricity without the need of gas or propane engines. Such is the case in a zero point magnetic generator.

A great benefit of any alternative energy generator is the fact that there are no harmful emissions. Visit... Alternative Energy at Home and learn about alternative energy devices you can build at home. www.squidoo.com/Renewable-energy-resoures
