I don’t know about you but I’ve been seeing a lot of information lately about using renewable sources of energy to save money and to save the planet. One of the up and comers in this field seems to wind energy. It seems that you can build your own wind generator for very little money.
A wind generator is simply a device that converts the energy form the wind into electricity. They come in many different styles from the traditional windmill shape to vertical styles. Some models are even small enough to fit on your roof.
As technology improves these generators will be able to convert energy into electricity even more efficiently. As it stands now they are still able to save the average homeowner about 80% off of their electric bill. Compound that amount out for years and you can see that the savings will be significant.
Most households will use small rooftop units to produce energy for their home. To buy one for your home would probably not be cost effective, you can however, build your own for less than $200 dollars.
The parts you need are readily available in any hardware store. For most people who don’t build things for a living, the time to build your wind generator can range from two days up to a week. It’s not a hard thing to do but, as with anything, it takes time if you’ve never done it before.
Because of the small upfront cost and the high return on investment, many people will recoup their initial investment in just a few months.
If you’ve been wondering what all the hoopla was about and have thought you’ve been missing out on something…you have. It’s not too late though, you can easily build your own wind generator for less money than you thought. The savings on your utility bill will really add up fast!
