Renewable Energy Sources – Build Your Own

Everyday the globe inches more rapidly to becoming more energy efficient as understanding slowly sinks in that everyone must do their part either out of necessity or governmental restrictions, to begin using renewable energy sources.

The two chief renewable energy resources, wind power and solar energy, are rapidly becoming more and more accessible for the everyday homeowner… that is, if you wish to build it yourself.

This could seem out of the reach for a lot of people but in truth, building your own renewable energy resources system just got a whole lot easier with the advent of numerous do-it-yourself guides that have come out that will show you everything, step-by-step, on how to build your own wind turbine and solar panel for your home.

Commercially built wind turbines and solar panels are still, at the moment, out of economic reach for the mainstream of homeowners. The expenses can range upwards of $ 10,000 for an installed wind turbine. It would take a few years before that much of an investment would pay itself off and you could actually start saving money. Renewable energy resources shouldn’t take that long to recapture your cost!

Thankfully, these DIY energy source guides can get your money invested back into your wallet within a couple of months. Normally, you will pay $ 50.00 for the renewable energy source guides and then another $ 200.00 in parts to actually build your wind turbine or solar panel.

The manuals claim you can build these systems in about 2 days.

Realistically, you may have 4 to 5 days only because you have to reason in the amount of time getting your parts and the fact that most people just are not going to study their manual and grow a wind turbine on their property two days later! It can and is done quite frequently, but on average, figure about 5 days.

One of the leading energy source guides available is Earth4Energy. This guide was developed by Michael Harvey.

Michael has been involved in renewable energy  for over the past 15 years. He started building a renewable energy sources system for himself and eventually started to build wind turbines and solar panel systems for friends and family.

Before long, Michael found himself a tad overwhelmed by requests. That is when he decided to develop an simple to grasp guide that would present everyday homeowners how to slash their electricity costs by building their own renewable energy sources for a small percentage of the cost of new, commercially built systems. Earth4Energy has since become the leader of home-built wind turbine and solar panel guides.

This author has written several articles about wind and renewable energy sources. His website at contains several related articles about wind energy and how the everyday homeowner can achieve results by building their own wind turbine system to cut their energy costs.
