Ways To Make Your Own Green Energy Source

By Sarah Green

Would it not be great if we are able to produce our own green energy source? If we are able to do that, we don't have to pay electrical bills or petrol anymore for our cars. While we are able to buy some of the clobber, the rest will need to be done on our own.

Take solar or wind energy for instance. We already understand how to harness and make it. If you'd like to make one, perform some research online and then set up the system yourself.

To have solar electricity, you are going to need to buy an inverter, battery, charge controller, solar panels, some wires and support structure. The sole difference with wind power is you will need a fan. After you have all that you need, you can assemble it all.

If you're not skilled, you will be delighted to know that some firms sell the whole system. By purchasing it from them and having it installed by their professionals, you are sure that there will not be any issues the moment you switch it on.

There's one more thing you need before you can use one or the two green energy sources. Before buying the materials or the system, ensure you have a flat area that is about a hundred sq. feet or so as it occupies plenty of space.

For those who do not have the space or the budget to use these 2 sources of energy, another choice is to make your very own biofuels.

Biofuels are employed in many countries and they get it from cropping corn, sugar and other crops. Luckily , you don't need a farm to produce it because you can make your own using some recycled waste.

A good example of this is vegetable oil which we use for cooking. To turn this into a biofuel, we first filter it by warming up the liquid and then filtering this with a coffee filter. The following step is to get rid of the water also by boiling it again at 100 degrees for a short period of time.

We need to know the quantity of lye present in the vegetable oil and we do it by a technique known as titration. When we are done with that, we now mix sodium hydroxide to supply sodium methoxide.

The method of changing used vegetable oil before it has a chance to become a biofuel takes quite awhile and it's got to be heated the whole time. This is done so the fuel we produce is pure and only when this is attained that we give it time to chill.

Just how much biofuel we make after all of the work varies but you'll have an idea of how much you have produced since this is the one you see floating at the top. If there is still some glycerin present, filter it again. From there, you already have your own backyard biofuel which you can use and even sell to people who are as involved with the environment as you are.

By making our own green energy sources, we make ourselves less dependent on gas in its varied forms to power our heater, home or auto. Why don?t a lot of people do it? Well just because they don't have the resources to make it and would prefer to depend on some other person to do it for them.
