With the ever-increasing loss of jobs in the United States and around the world, more and more people are finding alternative ways to cut costs in their home expenses.
As you already know, one of the biggest expenses as a home owner is your electricity and fuel costs.
Many people are finding out that they can drastically reduce the costs of electricity and fuel costs by building and installing their very own do-it-yourself power plant.
In some cases, depending on the size of the power source, some home-owners are even able to pay zero costs for their home electricity.
The Pros And Cons Of Solar Panels And Power-Generating Windmills
Some of the most common sources of alternative energy come from building solar panels connected to standby batteries and power converters.
The power converters take low DC voltage and converts this energy to 110 volt alternating current you will find in every home.
Another alternative way of producing this energy is in the form of windmills. Windmills have been used for thousands of years for pumping water through mechanical means, but recently, they are being used to supply the power necessary to produce electricity in the similar fashion as solar panels.
One of the biggest problems facing most “do-it-yourselfers” is that many people that have a limited budget and just don’t have a lot of money to spend in the up-front costs involved.
It’s true that one can get started building their own solar panels and windmills for under $200.00, but the truth is that is may cost anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 to make a substantial dent in the monthly cost of energy in a typical household.
With a system that costs around $200.00 many will find that the only thing they can power with this amount of energy is a couple of low-wattage light bulbs… Hardly enough power to run typical household appliances like refrigerators, televisions, and air conditioning systems.
Enter The World Of Self-Driven Magnetic Motor Power Generators
One of the newest alternative sources to hit the world of DIY energy is the Magnetic Motor Power Generator.
What Is a Magnetic Motor Power Generator?
Before answering this question I would like to first tell you how a typical electric motor works.
A typical magnetic motor is a device that you use every day. This can be in the form of a fan or a blower for your air conditioner.
When power is applied to the motor it produces an electro-magnetic force that causes a magnetic field to push and pull on fixed wires spun around the outside portion of a steel rod.
When these wires (windings) are caused to spin, the rod will also spin causing the motion of a fan to push air using fan blades.
But How Can A Motor Produce Energy?
If you know anything about automobiles, you have heard of an electrical motor inside your engine compartment called the alternator/generator.
In the case of automobile generators, the gasoline motor turn the rod using belts which gives the generator enough power output to charge your battery and help run some of the electrical components in your vehicle.
The household magnetic generators that people are now discovering and building are exactly like the automobile’s electrical generator, but on a much larger scale, but here’s the really cool thing about these new generators…
They are self-driven.
This means that instead of the motor needing another source of power to make them work, they work all by themselves.
The motors are designed so that all one has to do is give them a quick turn and the magnets within the units cause the motor to rotate indefinitely.
In other words, once the motor starts to turn, they will never stop and don’t require anything else in terms of energy to make them turn and produce clean, green power to all your home appliances.
The only maintenance required would be to inspect and clean the magneto inside the motor or to provide a little lubrication to the moving parts within.
This is by far one of the neatest inventions coming to the forefront in way of alternative energy in a long time.
If you prefer not to build these power-generating motors yourself, there is a company from Australia that will soon be selling these these on the market in the next couple of years for around $5,000.00
If your household uses at least $500 of energy per month, this motor would pay for itself in less than a year.
The bottom line is that one should do their homework and research all avenues before deciding which way to go in terms of do-it-yourself home energy projects.
