Living Off-Grid is Only Way to Keep Power When Storms Such as Sandy Strike
The massive storm that hit the East Coast earlier this week left nearly 8 million people without electricity. Power4Patriots believes that the only protection against power outages is getting off the grid by using solar and wind energy.
Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) November 02, 2012
Nearly 8 million homes and businesses without power. More than 85 U.S. citizens dead. Untold property damage from wind, water and fires. That's what occurred after Sandy wreaked its havoc earlier this week in the northeastern United States, according to CNN and other news sources.
Sandy is just the latest natural disaster to cause huge problems for people who are at the mercy of the U.S. power grid. Other storms including hurricanes and tornadoes, plus floods and fires, have also contributed to the loss of air conditioning, heating, lighting and food due to power outages.
Power4Patriots is finding that more and more people are deciding they don't want to be dependent on an old and faulty power grid that falters so frequently and costs them hundreds or sometimes thousands of dollars when it fails. Some of those people are turning to Power4Patriots to get off the grid and generate their own solar and wind power. In fact, the company recently sold its 100,000th unit since launching less than a year ago.
In addition to being environmentally friendly, the Power4Patriots system is a 100 percent legal way to cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent while making a home, cabin or RV self-sufficient. And when the power grid goes down as it did earlier this week across much of the Northeast, Power4Patriots customers don't go dark.
Power4Patriots is a collection of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. The system includes six videos demonstrating how to build a solar panel, including choosing the right materials, finding the right site for the system and avoiding costly mistakes, as well as two instruction manuals with step-by-step, illustrated directions. It also includes four videos detailing how to build a wind turbine and two instruction manuals.
While experience in working with wood and other materials is helpful, users don't need to be professional handymen to build these systems, and skills such as welding are not necessary. The company says that installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one's home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent.
On average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine. Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines spend three to four times that amount. The time commitment to build a solar panel ranges from two to four hours, with the first one requiring more time than subsequent panels. A wind turbine requires a handful of hours to build.
Importantly, the outside temperature doesn't matter when it comes to benefiting from solar panels, which are energized by sunlight. Urban conditions work too because roofs, poles, fences and windowsills can be utilized.
Power4Patriots was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages. Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own, environmentally friendly sources of energy.
