Alternative Energy Equipment
This page will try to explain the differences in the
that is used in conventional old power and the new
Alternative Energy and why I believe it is the best
The old Dinosaur energy companies, a little play on
as in coal, gas and oil, has some really good old
all they have been using it for around 100 years or so.
Nuclear power was the new kid on the block so to
speak, so new
that no one gave a thought as to how or what we were
going to do
with all of those fuel rods for the next 50 to 100
thousand years or so.
No one told us how much it was really going to cost to
build them either,
the same goes for those gas, coal and oil plants.
The old style of Power comes out of the company to the
flows to power lines and maybe into your home or
if Mother Nature or a vehicle doesn’t stop the flow.
The power company sends the power past you at the
street and you pay to have it hooked up to your home
or building and then pay them to use their electricity.
The equipment that you will need to run on Alternative Power
will depend on what you want to do and how fast
you want to get off of the grid.
To hook up a water heater:
(1)- Solar panel or panels.
(2)- Tank to hold the hot water.
(3)- Piping or tubing to and from panel.
(4)- Valves to control water flow.
(5)- Circulator pump to move
the water, (Low voltage).
(6)- Just like with any water
heater a back flow preventer.
(7)- A sensor to handle the water
Now if you wish to also heat with water you will need:
(1)- Piping to a heater.
(2)- A circulator pump to send hot water into the heating
(3)- A coil, baseboard or Radiant flow or ceiling
(4)- Thermostat to control
(5)- A relay so that you can use a
low voltage thermostat.
(6)- Wiring harness from panel to
relay & Circulator.
