My name is Neville Pettersson and I have created the this site to help regular home owner’s like me make their own
Looking at the site, the first thing one notices is that it's not as colorful and glitzy as many other sites erected for the same purpose. However, what it offers is essentially the same: guidance and help in making your own renewable energy, for a price of $29.
One claim made by Powers4Life is slightly misleading, although factually accurate: that a solar panel or wind turbine can be made for less than $200. That's technically correct (if anything it's overstating the cost), but one can easily get the impression that an entire solar or wind energy system can be installed for that price sufficient to meet all your energy needs and stop sending money to the power company. That is not correct (nor is it explicitly claimed).
More than one solar panel or wind turbine would be necessary to achieve energy independence,
and the panels or turbines would need to be incorporated into a complete home-
You are almost certainly looking at two or three thousand dollars for such a complete
system, more or less depending on your home's energy consumption. But that is still
far less than you would pay to have a contractor install the system, and will be
paid for within a few years through reduced (or eliminated) electricity bills.
Another thing that's usually downplayed by such offerings (and Powers4Life is no exception) is the amount of work involved.
It isn't difficult to make a solar panel, but it is time consuming and requires individually
wiring and soldering each solar cell, of which quite a lot are required to produce
each panel. In all cases, it's a question of whether the money saved is worth the
time required; however, the money that can be saved is quite substantial, so for
many people it is a good investment of time.
Powers4Life offers its information on a money-
The information offered appears to be a complete guideline for making and installing
a home solar or wind power system, including not only making the solar panels or
wind turbines, but also how to find materials and tools, how to implement a home
energy system with grid-
For that reason, it looks like something that should be looked into for anyone interested in making their own renewable energy.
In these days of rising electricity cost, rising gasoline prices, rising costs of home heating oil and natural gas, rising costs of almost all kinds of energy, one of the few bright spots is that the cost of renewable energy such as solar and wind power is coming down.
It's even possible to build your own solar panels or DIY wind turbine and install them yourself, thus saving thousands of dollars on a home energy system and so installing one that will pay for itself in a short time through savings on your electric bill.
