    Utilities – Energy Generation

    With fuel bills continuing to rise as a result of the price of oil and the ongoing recession, many are looking for ways of saving as much money as possible.

    Utilities are one of the most important bills that homeowners have to pay, for no power means no hot water or means of cooking and refrigeration. With prices fluctuating in response to the global situation, homeowners are now turning to nature in an attempt to save money on their utility bills.

    Indeed, sales of DIY turbine and solar panel kits have seen increases in sales in recent times, with more homeowners looking to natural resources in a bid to lower their energy bills. Before you decide which method is best for you, it’s worth thinking about a few things with regards to the environment of your location. Research the weather in your local area, including future forecasts for a few months or so, in order to determine which would be best for you:

    • Solar power – popular in the Mediterranean region and those around the Equator. Utilising solar cells to convert the heat and light of the sun into energy through chemical reactions, which is then stored in small to medium-sized generators.
    • Wind power – makes use of a turbine which is turned by the wind, storing energy in a generator, which can be hooked up to, and therefore fed back into your current power supply.
    • Tidal power – utilises the motion of tidal currents to power turbines, collecting kinetic energy at the end of each wave. Whilst this technology is still in the early stages of development, projects such as the Anaconda are helping research on a larger scale.

    There are now a multitude of kits available on the market, from build-your-own solar panels to small wind turbines that you mount to the side or roof of your property.

    Utilising these can help you to save on the cost of your electricity, and with kits like these becoming more freely available; more of us are now turning to these, as well as looking the possibility of a switch of providers. By powering a smaller generator using wind or solar power, you can save yourself some money on your bills, but also make a little by selling those excess kilowatts back to the grid, or use it to power smaller appliances within your property.
