You are in for a lot of fun and money saving tips and instruction. I as you am interested in building a wind turbine/ generator to do my part in saving the environment and saving me money. I have a small work -shop and have some generator parts to work with. Reading about building is fun but watching a video of actual working machines is the most. Go to www.youtube.com and enter homemade wind generator in the search box and enjoy the fun and instruction. Good luck with you project.

Should people invest renewable energy?


While it's fairly easy to fit solar panels on your roof to generate electricity - and save money - investing in funds that hold the wind and solar firms offers more of a challenge.
It sounds like the perfect investment. Equip your house with solar panels and look forward to dramatically reduced utility bills and the potential to earn a handsome return by selling any excess energy to the electricity grid.
Thousands of people across the country have already embraced this idea since the government introduced the Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) Scheme in April 2010 to encourage the uptake of small-scale renewable and low-carbon technologies.
Greg Shreeve, the insight manager at the Energy Saving Trust, believes getting solar panels installed is a no- brainer for many people. The potential benefits to be enjoyed, he argues, more than makeup for the upfront costs.
"The technology pays for itself within 11 years and will go on generating electricity for your home," he says. "It's a great way to actually start making money when energy prices are rising. It's free electricity and low-carbon technology, so a winner all round."

What will be our next major source of energy?


The sun and the wind will both be our major source of energy in the future. The sun is always there and the turbines will be needed to supply energy to homes in the winter time. we will see only electric cars on the roads and the airline industry will have to figure out something cause planes do not fly on solar power.

How do i convert my 1.2kw solar inverter on my roof so i can run my home on stored energy ?


Solar panels produce DC voltage.
some solar panels have the inverter integrated into each solar panel.
I would suggest contacting a local solar panel supplier and asking them if they could add a Battery Charging System to the Solar panels you use. An then what sort of inverter to add to the bank of batteries.
An inverter converts DC voltage to AC voltage to use in the grid.
The AC voltages and DC voltages involved have the possiblity to kill if you much around with electricity.

I have a problem related to a solar system and I don ' tknow where to go with it


Hello -

It may depend upon where you reside. In some locations, electric power companies have boosted their rates for those with solar power panels.

Without knowing where in the world you reside, it is difficult to provide you with specific information.

I am building an off grid cabin but will need to meet code providing all electrical components as per the latest NEC. I will be using a 4100 watt generator for my initial power source but plan on...


I think he cost of the panel and breakers would be the cheapest thing on your list. Your 4100 watt genny is tiny for a whole house, and if you are planning on a solar set up, you will need to convert to dc, so, I take it your 4100 genny is used to charge the battery bank? Then the panel will not need to be anything but a small disconnect for the genny, basically one of those things that prevents the current from flowing back into the source, which you don't have. I would talk to the building dept., they may not want to take liability, and make you get a contractor to figure something out. All your appliances, and lights will be 12 volt, most motors are 12 volt anyway, they are just transformed to 12 volt from 110 current, and I don't think you will need breakers for 12 volt stuff. You could look at some camper supplies, boat stuff, they all run 12 volt appliances, and lights.
