The persistent use of non-renewable sources is the reason, and they are bound to become extinct. The importance of reducing our dependency on these non-renewable sources is obvious. Thankfully, there is a growing “army” of individuals in many countries across the globe who realise the importance of changing to natural energy resources. These are those who are living off the grid.
We briefly consider here what natural energy resources are available to help individual householders use today’s technology to be living off the grid.
Natural energy resources are those which keep producing free electric energy day after day without exhausting their supply.
Three types of natural energy resources fall into the category of renewable energy solutions: solar energy, wind energy and electromagnetic energy.
Solar energy: The sun generates the most abundant energy available on earth. Make use of this supply of free electric energy to employ solar power in your own home. With the advancement of technology, energy from the sun can be converted to electricity.
Having your own electricity supply means living off the grid. You will cut your power bill and also help your contribution to the environment. Solar power can be used to operate cookers, heating systems, lighting systems, dishwashers, washing machines, and dryers. Anything you wish to run on electricity…
A solar energy system has many advantages. It is cost-effective and environmentally friendly, as it means living off the grid, and also it is low on maintenance. Families installing solar energy systems in their homes find they benefit from a quick return on their investment and from regular payments from the power supply companies for the free electric energy generated.
Wind energy: Windmills have been in existence for more than two thousand years. Once, they helped to tow boats and to pump water. After the industrial revolution, they were used to generate electricity. Wind energy is one of those excellent natural energy resources to use to create free electric energy.
When built for an individual home, location and environment being assessed as suitable, a homemade wind turbine can go a long way in helping you be independent and enjoy living off the grid. The wind turbine can be a useful contributor to harnessing the natural energy resources of the moving air.
Electromagnetic energy: Magnetic generators use powerful magnets to provide electricity. The special property of polarity which magnets posses, creates a force capable of turning a turbine so that electricity is produced as an Alternate Current (AC). A home made magnetic generator will have batteries to store the free electric energy when it is not running. A home made magnetic generator could be the best alternative of either or solar or wind energy as it is not only cheaper in production but also cheaper in its maintenance.
Free electric energy is a real possibility with your own homemade solar panels, homemade wind turbine or a free electric device, which can include your own home made magnetic generator
