Home Made Energy – Build Wind Power System
One of the cheapest sources of energy is wind power. You can build wind power system at home and start generating electricity for your own consumption. Not only is the electricity produced by a wind generator much cheaper; the whole process is pollution-free as well.
A wind power system transforms the kinetic energy of the wind into mechanical or electrical energy that can be harnessed for practical use. Mechanical energy is most commonly used for pumping water in rural or remote locations, but it can also be used for many other purposes, such as grinding grain, sawing, or pushing a sailboat. Wind electric turbines generate electricity for homes and businesses and for sale to utilities. The two basic designs of wind electric turbines are the vertical-axis or egg-beater style and the horizontal-axis or propeller-style machines. Horizontal-axis wind turbines are most common today, constituting nearly all of the utility-scale turbines in the global market.
As their name suggests, wind power systems harness wind power and convert the kinetic energy of wind into electrical energy, which is then supplied to our homes through the connecting wires. In a typical residential application, the power from the wind turbine is connected to the main electric service wire to the home. Special interconnection equipment will allow powering the home, or sending the excess power generated by the turbine back to the utility grid.
One benefit of using wind power is that it is inexhaustible like sunlight. Therefore, it can provide us with an extremely clean and renewable supply of electricity.
Again, wind energy is unlimited, which means that the power generated out of a wind power generator will give a lifetime benefit for our energy needs. Using wind power will help us reduce our electric bills by up to seventy percent, while reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and saving the world we live in.
