The San Francisco City Supervisor wants to require new buildings to include rooftop solar panels in order to double the amount of solar-generated electricity in the city by 2020. Power4Patriots applauds the emphasis on solar energy.
Nashville, TN / ACCESSWIRE / October 23, 2014 / In an effort to double the amount of solar electricity generated by the city of San Francisco by 2020, City Supervisor David Chiu said he plans to introduce a resolution requiring that new buildings in the city have solar panels, gardens or both on their roofs, according to KESQ-TV.
Chiu said that his proposal, called Solar Vision 2020, would work for commercial buildings and would result in bringing the city to 50 megawatts of solar-generated electricity within six years.
Power4Patriots commends the city's emphasis on increasing the amount of electricity that is generated by solar panels, and strongly urges businesses and homeowners across the country to follow suit in order to save money and take some pressure off a vulnerable electrical grid.
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.
"Installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one's home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent," said 4Patriots Partner Allen Baler. "On average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine. Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines spend three to four times that amount."
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 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.
