Power4Patriots Responds to Power Outages from North Carolina Storms
According to WBBT-TV (NBC) in Richmond, Vir., more than 80,000 people lost power in recent storms that snapped 100-year-old trees and blew the roof off a residence.
The storms were more in a series of extreme weather events that have put millions of Americans in the dark for varying amounts of time through the years. With extreme weather causing blackouts across the country year-round and a variety of other natural and man-made events threatening a vulnerable electrical grid, many people are looking for ways to protect themselves and their families from the results of power outages.
Power4Patriots officials say the best way to keep electricity flowing during blackouts and reduce monthly power costs is to become independent of the vulnerable U.S. power grid. They recommend that people learn how to generate their own electricity through the installation of solar panels and wind turbines.
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.
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,” said 4Patriots Partner Allen 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 spend three to four times that amount. Installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one’s home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent.
