  • Although it is much less expensive to initially get hooked into the local electric company’s grid than it is to set up and hook into wind turbines, in the long run one saves money by utilizing the wind for one’s energy needs—while also becoming more independent. Not receiving an electric bill while enjoying the advantages […]

    Wind Power as a Viable Solution to Meeting Alternative Energy Needs

    Although it is much less expensive to initially get hooked into the local electric company's grid than it is to set up and hook into wind turbines, in the long run one saves money by utilizing the wind for one's energy needs—while also becoming more independent. Not receiving an electric bill while enjoying the advantages of the modern electrically-driven lifestyle is a wondrous feeling. Electric bills and fuel bills are rising steadily—but the cost of wind turbine energy is zero, and the...

    Renewable Energy: Biodiesel

    You may have heard of biodiesel (or even biowillie), but for those who don't know much about it, we will get to an explanation of it in a moment.  I just wanted to start with a small list of the benefits of using biodiesel. BENEFITS OF BIODIESEL Requires no special delivery equipment and can use existing infrastructure. Can be used in present diesel engines without modification Reduces carbon dioxide emissions from 15% to over 75% over petroleum diesel, based on the biodiesel blend. Emits...

  • There are many different forms in which alternative energy is available. One of these is solar power. Solar power is driven by photovoltaic cells, and these are progressively getting less expensive and more advanced. Solar energy power can be used for electricity, heating, and making hot water. Solar energy produces no pollution, as its input […]

    Resources for Alternative Energy

    There are many different forms in which alternative energy is available. One of these is solar power. Solar power is driven by photovoltaic cells, and these are progressively getting less expensive and more advanced. Solar energy power can be used for electricity, heating, and making hot water. Solar energy produces no pollution, as its input comes completely from the sun's rays. However, much more work still needs to be done in order for us to economically harness the sun's energy. For the time...

  • Glaciers and polar ice are melting, ocean levels are rising, hot, dry weather, huge forest fires, water restrictions, crop failures… You name it, if these don’t feature in your life yet, they soon will. Global warming and climate change are facts of life now, according to the International Panel on Climate Change, and many scientists. […]

    10 Alternate Energy Sources To Live Well With Global Warming

    Glaciers and polar ice are melting, ocean levels are rising, hot, dry weather, huge forest fires, water restrictions, crop failures... You name it, if these don't feature in your life yet, they soon will. Global warming and climate change are facts of life now, according to the International Panel on Climate Change, and many scientists. Huge problems beyond our control! But are you hot under the collar? If you're not, you probably live in a city where half of the Earth's citizens live...
