3 DIY Micro-Power Generations


Have you ever noticed your housing electric bill is raising? Reducing the usage of electric appliances still don’t have much help due to almost all the appliances in your house need electrics to function properly. The only option you have in order to reduce the bill is to utilize the natural energy around you, and turn it into electricity that can be used. Let us tell you the ways on how you can have your own DIY Micro-Power Generation, generating electricity using the natural energy way. Not only its can save your wallet, but it can also save our environment from global warming in the long run.

Solar Heating


Relying on the sun to heat your home is unquestionably the most efficient route forward, at least when it comes to designing for passive solar gain. Installing solar panels (active solar) to heat your home is always born of good intentions, but it is not as cut and dried as you might think.

Solar thermal systems in particular can be a great heat source if you have a hydronic heating system. Rather than generating power that in turn runs electric heaters, solar thermal systems pump liquid through solar panels to absorb heat directly from the sun and transfer it into your home. Heated liquid (usually glycol) is stored in a preheating tank through which other water feeds pass and absorb that heat. This can be used to preheat domestic hot water as well as the liquid in hydronic heating systems.

Micro-hydroelectric Generation


The proper conditions for generating hydroelectric power are rare enough in rural settings, and virtually unheard of in urban cores. Hydroelectricity is without a doubt renewable, but the ecological impact of setting up a system can be quite heavy, certainly if you intend to extract enough power to have a noticeable impact on your consumption.So we don’t strongly advocate it for personal projects, as the ecological damage often outweighs the benefits. And in the absence of a sizeable reservoir, water flow and power output will be quite unpredictable, so you may be relying on grid power more than you might wish.

Personal Wind Turbines


Not all the place can install this personal wind turbines. The wind patterns of your geographical location would be the main thing to investigate in determining whether or not a turbine is worth while. It is recommended to ensure that a wind turbine is taller than any other structure or tree within 100 metres. Small and reasonably affordable home turbines are finding their way onto the market, and are available through some national hardware stores.

As a conclusion, not all the houses are suitable to install all the three DIY Micro-Power Generator. You need to learn about your property first. For example, a condominium is not suitable to install solar thermal system, or personal wind turbines. For landed property, solar system is perfect to be installed, but personal wind turbines is only suitable to be installed in an open area. Make sure you have make research or get the consultation from the expert before you buy any of the materials.
