Wind Power

Wind power has been around for a very long and

we are now finally starting to realize its

potential as a great energy saver.

Most of the things that you can do with Wind Power

to save Energy, also apply to Solar Power.

One great advantage that Wind Power has over Solar Power

is that it works best in bad weather.

The first thing that we need to do is stop thinking

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.

 

Wind Power

With wind power as with solar panels, you can

pump your well water into your home filtration system.

When there is no wind, a relay drops in

and your solar panel battery takes over with

its solar pump motor or alternator.

 

Some of this may seem repetitive, because many alternative

energy products can do the same job and this is one of those times.

Some people cannot and some people will not switch to

newer energy equipment however, for a variety of reasons.

So, we must speak with the only voice that they will listen to, our vote.

Beginning this election, let’s vote only the people into

office who will be 100% for Alternative Energy!

Wind Generator

A wind generator, like a solar panel, generates electricity

to be sent down to an electric water heater,

heating unit or heating A-coil to heat your home.

Again, remember that we are now

thinking low voltage, not electric companies.

We also need to remember that we can use solar

and wind to light lights in our home with 12 or 24 volts

right from our panels and/or generators.

 

We have been doing this in our campers, boats

and motor homes for many years.

As for microwaves, T.V.'s, stoves, washers,

dryers and fans, 12 volts or 24 volts.

I can remember back in the 70's,

working on 12 and 24 volt refrigerators,

so why not now and air and heat pumps too?
