How To Make Wind Power – A Sustainable Energy Source

August 14, 2020 Off By Crystal Watkins

Nowadays, energy industry is considered to be the biggest on the globe. Basing upon the last trends in investments, renewable sources of energy may be viewed as a very long-sighted alternative for investing.

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.

Recycle your paper. Home offices consume paper just as much as regular offices do. Are you in the habit of throwing away sheets of paper that you have already used? If the other side is still blank, you can still reuse it as scratch paper. Or you can let your paper pile up and then take it to your local recycling center.

Why would utility companies want to find ways to lower energy costs when they could continue to milk their customers for all their worth? These companies think you have two choices: pay their high prices, or freeze. They are wrong. You have another choice. Homemade Energy can tell you how to get cheap, power supplier to fuel your home.

Now, Tom set his sights on working out a plan to take his home “off the grid”, out of the hands of the public electric works. He needed a way to provide his own electricity, so that he and Barbara could stop using electricity from the city. He did his research and found that he had three options for an alternative power source to bring electricity into their home: solar energy, wind power, and hydropower.

In our case we will start with a Canyon Hydro — 350 kW Pelton wheel similar to the one picture above. This unit has a 350KW GE induction generator with servo control and grid switching gear. It is currently a 28 inch pitch Pelton wheel with a single 4.125 inch dia. nozzle (3.5 in effective jet) which can be upgraded to a two jet unit for more flow and therefore power. Our potential head is less than the design head so we will seek to increase flow. The variable jet control combined with the extra nozzle and pelton turbine gives a better range of efficiencies for our variable flow regime. A crossflow unit would probably be a better match but it has less efficiency.

What is sustainable living? It is do-able. One baby step after another. Each constructive action at your personal and family level will eventually have an impact in the community you live and the rest of the world.
