Would you like to find a way in which you can reduce your monthly utility bills throughout the year? Then it may be worthwhile considering having a DIY wind power system installed at your home. If you get the right kind of wind turbine you could actually be reducing your annual utility bill by as much as 90%.
The only thing that you need to have to ensure that the DIY wind power system operates effectively is sufficient amounts of wind. Ideally you should have wind blowing around your home consistently at a speed of not less than 10 miles per hour.
When it comes to making wind power you will find it is far easier than you first thought possible. However, in order for you to know how to make electricity from wind power you first need to understand the way in which it works. Below we show you the basics of how electricity is produced through wind.
All DIY wind power systems have rotors at the top of a pole which turn as the wind blows against them. As they turn then they produce motion and kinetic energy and connected to the rotors are a turbine. It is this part of the DIY wind power system which then converts the energies mentioned into electricity which can be used to run various different pieces of equipment in your home.
With these systems you have the choice of either going for a battery or grid connected system for your home. Either of which will ensure that your home is being provided with enough energy to run many of the modern pieces of equipment that you have in your home.
Certainly if the amount of wind that blows around your home is fast and constant then the chances of you having to rely on the local power grid for your electricity is greatly reduced. In fact you may find that your DIY wind power system makes you completely self sufficient. However, it is advisable to remain connected to the local power grid, just there are occasions where the wind supply is reduced and you can then use this as a backup electricity supply instead.
In fact as soon as you begin to notice that the wind speeds have reduced below 10 miles per hour this is a good time when you start using the local power grid. However, as soon as the speeds increase once more remember to revert back to your own wind power system. If not then you could be faced with a very large electricity bill the following month.
When it comes DIY wind power systems you will soon discover after carrying out some more research that this one has advantages over the other kinds. Firstly that this type of system costs a lot less to get up and running. Secondly with this type of system you will find the cost of caring for and maintaining it are considerably less as well.
