A recent report claims that solar power now accounts for more installed capacity than any other form of electricity generation. Power4Patriots officials recommend installing solar panels and wind turbines at residential and commercial locations to save money and keep electricity flowing.
New data reveals that solar power now accounts for more installed capacity than any other form of electricity generation. Every day last year, an average of approximately 500,000 solar panels were installed around the world, and China alone installed the equivalent of two wind turbines every hour.
“This report offers additional proof that solar energy is the wave of the future,” said 4Patriots Partner Allen Baler. “Over time, the costs of renewable energy should continue to drop. Using solar energy will not only help homeowners save money, but will aid in the quest to leave less of a carbon footprint.
“Of course, there are other advantages to installing solar panels and wind turbines. Disruptions of electrical service occur frequently – most often due to extreme weather – so getting off the grid as much as possible helps homeowners avoid that inconvenience. And only those prepared for a longer blackout will be in position to effectively deal with it.”
Power4Patriots is a recently updated series of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. The system includes six videos demonstrating how to build a solar panel, including choosing the right materials, finding the right site for the system and avoiding costly mistakes, as well as two instruction manuals with step-by-step, illustrated directions. It also includes four videos and two instruction manuals detailing how to build a wind turbine.
“On average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine,” Baler said. “The time commitment to build a solar panel ranges from two to four hours, with the first one requiring more time than subsequent panels. A wind turbine requires a handful of hours to build.”
Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines for their residential and commercial properties spend three to four times as much as those who make their own. Installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one’s home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent.
Power4Patriots was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages. Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own, environmentally friendly sources of energy.
