Home Built Power Generation Systems
There is nothing quite so satisfying as flying a home built wind generator for the first time or soaking yourself in hot water generated from a simple home built solar hot water system.
Do it yourselfers and backyard tinkers can make an enormous contribution to clean green living and building sustainable communities. As we move toward more sustainable economic systems self sufficient living in terms of both food and energy production will become the central player.
Home built power generation systems will help us move away from
current centralized power systems and so eliminate the enormous losses
(around 30%) involved in traditional grid power distribution networks.
LittleGreenGuide is seeking contributions from do it yourself tinkers and experimenters who've developed home built energy systems or ideas for home power generation or any refinements that increase the efficiency and cost effectiveness of off the shelf systems.
