Solar Power House – How To Live Off-Grid

You can’t spend any amount of time by an ocean without noting the power of the coming and going of the tides. But what is the source of this tidal power? Where does the energy to move all that water come from?

Of course it does not make sense for hydropower to be used everywhere. There are many places where there just is not enough water flowing in the area for them to work well. Not every place as an abundance of rivers, streams, and oceans to produce hydropower. Most of them are found along the West of the United States. They are in Oregon, Washington, and California.

These seven renewable sources of energy I have briefly mentioned are probably the most significant, at least at the moment. That doesn’t mean someone will not come up with something we never heard of.

In order to work out your solar electricity requirements you need to understand where this energy is being consumed. Count how many appliances you have on constantly, how many watts they use when operating and add extra for using items you don’t use constantly.

Power4Home offers simple plans for you to build your own green energy generators. These plans use simple materials and most individuals complete the project for less than two-hundred dollars. Most families spend close to that amount on energy costs in just one month during the hot summer or cold winter months.

Buy pre-owned fashion. If you do want to buy something, shop vintage. When you buy used clothing, you’re recycling it, saving it from the landfill. And it required no additional resources to produce it.

When you look at what is happening around the developed world, you see very similar economic issues, mostly tied to debt. Along with Greece, other European countries are also struggling with the real potential of economic calamity.

On a side note, we’ll offer a summertime energy tip. Check to see if your windows are locked. We don’t generally think of air leakage in the summer like we do in the winter. When it’s cold, we can feel the cold drafts wafting through the house. But in summer, warm drafts are not as easily felt. But they cost you money just the same. As more hot air seeps into your house, more cool air seeps out. That means that your air conditioner will work that much harder to keep you feeling cool. So be sure to check your windows in summer as well as in winter.
