The dramatic rise in the use of solar energy is music to the ears of Power4Patriots officials, who recommend the DIY method of installing solar panels and wind turbines at residential and commercial locations to keep the electrical flow going when the grid fails
NASHVILLE, TN / ACCESSWIRE / May 17, 2016 / A recent article in Forbes magazine reports that even though Americans continue to use much more power generated by oil and coal than by the sun, solar energy consumption grew at a 38 percent rate from 2013 to 2014. Robert Rapier, author of a book titled Power Plays: Energy Options in the Age of Peak Oil, believes solar is the most important emerging energy source and will pass coal and rival oil in the amount of energy supplied globally within the next one to two decades.
Officials at Power4Patriots are also convinced that solar is the wave of the future. They strongly encourage Americans to go solar in order to save money and limit their dependence on a vulnerable U.S. electrical grid.
"Getting off the grid as much as possible is a good idea for several reasons," said 4Patriots Partner Allen Baler. "In addition to extreme weather, our electrical grid is being attacked regularly by hackers and it's just a matter of time before a lengthy blackout occurs. When that happens, only those who are prepared for it will be able to handle it."
Baler believes that the best way to keep electricity flowing during blackouts, and reduce monthly power costs, is to become independent of the power grid by learning how to generate electricity through the installation of solar panels and wind turbines.
Power4Patriots is a recently updated series of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. The system includes six videos demonstrating how to build a solar panel, including choosing the right materials, finding the right site for the system and avoiding costly mistakes, as well as two instruction manuals with step-by-step, illustrated directions. It also includes four videos and two instruction manuals detailing how to build a wind turbine.
Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines for their residential and commercial properties spend three to four times as much as those who make their own. Installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one's home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent.
Power4Patriots was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages. Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own, environmentally friendly sources of energy.
On average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine. The time commitment to build a solar panel ranges from two to four hours, with the first one requiring more time than subsequent panels. A wind turbine requires a handful of hours to build.
Power4Patriots is a series of videos and manuals that teach do-it-yourselfers how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. Cost savings are up to 75 percent.
