The concept of creating and using a build it yourself wind generator has become extremely well-liked among people the world over looking to save money while contributing to the protection and preservation of the environment. The dependency on fossil fuels has led to their depletion and people are now turning to alternative sources of energy such as the sun and the wind.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Wind Energy
Using a build it yourself wind generator has a number of significant advantages, some of which we have discussed here. Firstly, a build it yourself wind generator is infinitely cheaper than a store bought wind generator. All the parts, equipment and tools can be purchased for under $200 from any local hardware store and the assembly of these parts is a simple task so as long as one is following precise and correct directions.
Also, when building a wind generator on your own, you save hundreds of dollars on the mechanical and construction costs. The maintenance and up keep of a build it yourself wind generator is almost negligible, and compared to the fantastic returns on the investment, it is barely noticeable. The electric power that is generated by a wind turbine can be used to meet most, if not all, the electric power needs of the house.
Once Initial Cost Has Been Recovered
As one is using a source of energy that is freely available in nature, once the initial setting up cost is overcome, using a wind generator actually does not cost any money. So in the long run, you can power up your house for no cost at all, depending the weather conditions in your region to provide for the necessary resource. However, even if you cannot actually power up all your systems using the energy generated by the wind turbine, you can use it for some lighting and electrical purposes, thus relieving a substantial part of the load on your electric bill.
You Can Even Make Some Money
And what's more, in the event that your wind generator creates excess power, more than that required by the household, it can be sold back to the power authorities. So by using a home built wind generator, not only do you get to save money, you can also earn some.
The second advantage of using a build it yourself wind generator lies in the fact that it is extremely ECO friendly. The wind is an environmentally friendly source of energy which upon being processed or used does not give off harmful emissions. Therefore, it does not add to the pollution levels in the environment. Also, the wind is abundantly available, and by using it, one is not causing the depletion of any exhaustible natural resources.
