Wind power has been around for a very long and
we are now finally starting to realize its
a great energy saver.
Most of the things that you can do with Wind
to save Energy, also apply to Solar Power.
One great advantage that Wind Power has over Solar
is that it works best in bad weather.
The first thing that we need to do is stop
in line with the voltage of our power grid (power companies)
110 volt, 220 volt and 440 volt and start thinking voltage dealing with
alternative energy, 12 volt, 24 volt and 48 volts, then we can light
a light or run a motor right from a new solar and/or wind generator.
With wind power as with solar panels, you can
pump your well water into your home
there is no wind, a relay drops in
your solar panel battery takes over with
its solar pump motor or
Some of this may seem repetitive, because many alternative
energy products can do the same job and
this is one of those times.

newer energy equipment however, for a variety of

that we are
thinking low voltage, not electric companies.
We also need to remember that we can use
and wind to light lights in our home with 12 or 24 volts
from our panels and/or generators.
We have been doing this in our campers, boats
homes for many years.
As for microwaves, T.V.'s,
dryers and fans, 12 volts or 24 volts.
I can remember back in the 70's,
on 12 and 24 volt refrigerators,
so why not now and air and heat pumps
