Energy is these days on everyone’s lips and everyone is thinking about it.

There are so many means of creating energy and a lot of them u can do yourself.

Let’s start with who I am and how I got to writing about energy. I am a thirty seven year old male living in South Africa in the city Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. My trade that I studied for is electrical and I have always had the love and the need for more information. At the age of about 25 I took a look at what was happening with technology and the environment. What I saw was that the world was booming and moving forward at an astounding pace, but at what price?

We all like our gadgets like phones and hairdryers and even my laptop that I am using to type this. Life for us is ever growing so that it is even hard to keep up with the new and best that is available on the market. And the thing is that most of that is energy gulping utilities that we have come to have the need for. People love their TV, PC, aircon, fan etc. We have reached a point where we can no longer live without our accessories. This is why I would like to talk about a better means of using and utilizing energy.

There are so many environment friendly means of creating energy around but yet we do not strive to change to that. We should all strive to convert to renewable energy.

Renewable energy is energy which comes from natural resources like sunlight, wind, rain, tides and geothermal heat. The one that interests me the most is energy from the sun. The sun is an unlimited supply of energy available to every person on this planet and the best part is that it is for free. Compared to fossil fuels I would say that it is very much cheaper and better. U can have solar panels installed in your home and u can save money. There are many DIY kits that u can purchase for building and installing your own solar panels. The sky is literally the limit for the generation that is coming but it is in our hand to make it possible for them.

Over 100 000 people have installed DIY solar systems in their homes and I do not know of one that said it was wrong or the worst thing that they did in their life. It is also possible for u to build your own solar panels and better your financial burden. You can build solar panels and install it by yourself for the fraction of the price that you would pay to have it installed at your home and u could save 50% on your electrical bill at the end of the month.

Hope that this got u started thinking about your needs and the needs of those still to come.
