We are all looking for ways to save money and cut some costs. Utility costs particularly since this is one of the major expense of most households. You’ve probably been hearing a lot about alternative energy sources such as energy windmills, but what is it and can it save money?
Using the wind to generate energy is not a new concept by any means. Windmills have been around for centuries as a way to pump water or grind wheat.
Today, we our available technology, we’ve been able to take that concept to a whole new level. We are now able to not only convert the energy to electricity but we now have the means to store it for later use. And the technology continues to improve.
What does that have to do with you, and how can it benefit you and your family? Simple, you can build your own wind turbine and harness the power of the wind for your household electrical needs.
I know many of you might be thinking that this sounds really hard, or downright ridiculous, but the truth is that it is not only possible millions of people all over the country are doing exactly that. And you can too.
Two of my neighbors have just installed wind turbines in their backyards. They say that it only took a day or two to build, and it cost less than $300. They said they were able to buy all the supplies they needed right at our local hardware store.
They are generating enough energy to cut their utility bills significantly, around 80%. Of course how much energy they generate depends on how windy it is on any given day.
So if you’ve been thinking about ways to cut your utility bill and are intrigued by the idea of using energy windmills to harness wind energy and save some money, you are not alone. Give it a try, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much you can save.
