Green DIY Energy Review

Which ever your reason may be, be it to reduce your electricity bills, or to “Go Green”, you’d still get both by generating your own renewable energy sources.

Power For Home, like Earth 4 Energy, Home Made Energy etc, is amongst those products that provides you with a detailed instructional guide, which come in videos, diagrams, manuals etc, to help you build and install your very own solar panel and wind turbine in your own backyard. These solar and wind energy can power up your home and significantly reduce your home bill, which may cost you as little as $ 200 to build these devices.

Not to mention how generating your own renewable energy does for the earth, since generating electricity conventionally from non- renewable sources of energy emits lots of pollutants in form of sulfur and nitrogen oxides, particulate matters and toxins.

Review:

This product surpasses the over hyped- up junk about why you should save the earth and goes straight into the gritty details about building a professionally home built renewable system energy system. The manuals are thorough with step-by-step guide how a solar panel can be made (for about $ 98), and also a wind turbine ( for about $ 140). Rest assured that making it feasible for a layman who wishes to D.I.Y. They provide you with detailed photos and diagrams and videos are even made by NABCEP certified electrician.

Also this package gives you the essential formulas you need to calculate the total system load, wire sizes, battery capacity, number of panels required to power up your home. Installation manual and information on tax credits for energy efficiency are also included.
