Free Energy Generators – DIY Solar, DIY Wind and Now DIY Magnetic Generator

Going green is becoming not just a moral choice, but an economic and sustainable choice.  Even in the world of alternative energy, there are options that had never been considered before and now you can do the previously impossible, create free energy at home.  

Over the last three decades the world has turned it’s interest to renewable clean energy and the advances in solar and wind generation are outstanding.  As a result of the demand for these products, the price is starting to fall dramatically and as a result of the components being readily available in local hardware stores, there is a burgeoning industry of DIY solar panel and DIY wind turbine information guides that are available online.

These guides afford people the opportunity to build their own solar panels or wind turbines for a fraction of the price of buying manufactured systems and this in turn has allowed a growing number of people to take advantage of the technology and do their bit for the planet and their pockets.

The new wave of interest is now the development of free energy generators in the form of electro magnetic power generators.  These systems produces more energy than it needs to run itself, which results in free energy.  They can be manufactured very easily and dependent on the size, they are capable of producing enough energy to support an entire home.  At present you can purchase these systems through companies and the Tesla is probably the most popular of the retailed offers, but for those who have a little diy expertise, or just want to take on an innovative home project, the DIY manuals are now available online.

Whilst solar panels are popular in locations that have a substantial amount of sunlight and whilst wind turbines are popular where there is constant wind, the greatest advantage of the magnetic generator is that you it functions in all weather, at all temperature, does not take up a substantial amount of space and is clean and totally free.

Having spent most of their lives in Africa and Central America, they feel most comfortable doing things for themselves and taking advantage of technology to make life easier.

DIY Solar Power Generator

A residential solar power system can produce tremendous benefits for a homeowner in the area of reducing energy costs, which can cause large strains in an average American home by draining large amounts from the household’s monthly budget. Even a do-it-yourself or DIY solar power generator can reduce energy bills down to considerable levels. In some cases where the solar power backup generator is efficient enough, energy bills can drop to zero and even negative levels, meaning the household is actually returning excess power back to the utility companies.

Several solar power kits are available from online and offline sources and prices are dropping considerably as further advancements make it possible for solar panels to be more affordable to the average American household. DIY solar power generator kits are also available or you can make one on your own. The following describes a procedure on how to build a solar power generator for only a few hundred dollars.

A Basic Procedure in Building Your Own DIY Solar Power Generator

The following describes a procedure of building a DIY solar power generator capable of generating 100 watt-hours of electrical energy from a daily solar exposure of just 5 hours, enough to power a 25-watt load like a laptop, an electric fan or a small television for four hours.

* For this project, you will need a 12v solar power readily available in the market. You will also need a 4-amp charge controller and a 32 amp-hour battery. This sealed battery can store up to 400 watts of electrical energy and the charge controller can prevent the batteries from overcharging.

* When solar energy is converted into electrical energy by the solar cells, DC or direct current is produced. However, standard household appliances use AC or alternating current and you will need a power inverter to convert DC power to AC.

* To monitor the electrical load produced by the generator as well as the levels of electrical power during charging or usage, a voltage meter should be incorporated with your DIY solar power generator.

* For the enclosure, you can use a wooden or plastic container where you can easily drill holes where you could pass the insulated wiring for the battery and inverter. The solar panels are packaged separately and should be installed in a strategic location on your roof where it can receive maximum exposure to sunlight.

* Follow proper wiring diagrams for your solar panel modules, which you can obtain from the manufacturer. The negative and positive leads of the panels, the battery and the charge controller should be properly identified first before making any connections. Ensure that polarities are matched during connections, otherwise your components will be damaged during operation.

This DIY solar power generator can generate and store up to 400 watt-hours of electrical energy that can be used to power small appliances. This is free solar energy converted into practically usable electrical energy.

DIY Wind Generator

Is it really possible to build your own working DIY wind generator? If so, is it really practical? Is a homemade wind turbine comparable to commercially sold and installed systems? What about parts – are they easy to find? These are the questions I hear most from my readers.

People like the idea of reducing or even eliminating their monthly electric power bill, but they are skeptical about whether or not they could really build such a machine, or if they do build it, if it will actually work and have an impact on their monthly bill.

The simple answer to all of these questions is “yes”. The fact is, a 1000 watt do-it-yourself wind generator can be built by just about anyone for less than $ 200 – and that includes the cost of the instructional materials. The project can be completed in about 2 weekends and there are many easy sources for all of the necessary parts.

Still, many remain skeptical. After all, a wind turbine that you buy and have erected professionally can cost up to $ 10,000. How could an average homeowner do it for under $ 200? Let’s address this for a minute.

Obviously, the components are marked up-just like any other retail service you would purchase. You are paying for wages and labor for the company that manufactures the system as well as the one that sells and installs it. In reality, the biggest part of the expense is in what I like to call the “knowledge cost”. Most people wouldn’t even know where to begin a project like this.

Then again, if you are a die hard DIY enthusiast like me, you already know that almost anything which seems complicated on the surface is for us simply a matter of following the right directions.

Here’s the bottom line. This is a fun and rewarding project that anyone with a few basic tools and modest project skills can complete successfully. It all goes together quite simply and the parts are all easy to find and/or make. The process of generating electricity from the wind has been around for a very long time. It is time tested and simple. Get the right instructional materials and let the wind blow away your energy bills.
