With the fast exhaustion of non-renewable resources, the shortage of power, the need for a reliable electricity supply and daily alerts of global warming, it is time we make a change. So, where shall we start? How about getting your power off the grid?
With the fast exhaustion of non-renewable resources, the shortage of power, the need for a reliable electricity supply and daily alerts of global warming, it is time we make a change.
So, where shall we start?
How about making your power off the grid? If you never thought of doing such a thing, you should know that there are many reasons for making your own power off the grid. They are:
1 – Reduced Power Costs:
By making your own renewable energy, you no longer have to rely on the utilities for power. And since you no longer get power off the grid, your electricity costs will reduce substantially. And once you have recovered your investment in your solar or wind power system, you essentially get unlimited free power.
2 – Lowers Your Carbon Footprint:
Making power off the grid requires the use of no coal or fossil fuels, but rather clean energy from the sun, wind or water. So, as you make more power off the grid, you reduce carbon emissions, and lower your carbon footprint. This promotes a cleaner, greener earth for current and future generations.
3 – Reduced dependence on decreasing resources:
Who really wants to depend on public utilities? Imagine if you never had to face a power outage again? This is very possible when you make and store your own power at home. It helps you take control of your power needs, without having to rely gas, coal, oil, nuclear and other non-renewable resources used by the utilities.
4 – Unlimited, free use of natural resources:
Just picture using as much power as you could, without worrying about excessive utility bills? Well, by making power off the grid, this could be a reality. You can use unlimited free power from the sun and wind to power and heat your home, heat your water and cook your food, without worrying about it running out.
5 – Systems can become portable:
What’s nice about renewable energy is that the system can be made portable. As technology develops, thin-film solar modules are lightweight, flexible and durable enough to be taken with you when traveling. When camping, portable black solar bags can be used to heat water for purification or for showering, and solar cookers can be used to cook a variety of meals.
6 – Affordable to get started:
With the help of various guides and diy manuals, it is very easy and cost-effective for anyone to learn to make their own solar or wind power system from simple parts found around the house or the local hardware store. Instead of spending several thousand dollars on professional solar or wind systems to make your own power off the grid, it can cost you well under $250 if you make and install the systems yourself.
With these six reasons, there is no excuse for you not to make your own power off the grid.
Which would you rather choose:
- Reducing your electricity consumption by using tedious saving power techniques OR
- Making your own power, and never worrying about how much you use.
