Renewable energy is energy which comes out from natural resources like sunlight, rain, wind, tides and geothermal heat which can naturally renew themselves. Through this way the energy is generated naturally. These days people try generating the energy themselves as it only requires the natural resources which are renewable. The high rising bills have forced people to create energy themselves at home. While generating energy at home there are many things that a person should keep in mind. Solar , wind hydroelectric and geothermal power are the different types. Solar energy power:There should be proper planning and designing of the solar energy system and a complete maintenance is required. This may work till 25 to 30 years if it is properly maintained. The cost of the solar system depends on the light of the sun. It depends where you live and how much sunlight reaches at your place. This can also be very expensive and in return may be harmful depending on the geographical location of your home.Wind energy generator:
The wind energy generators at home are less expensive then generating energy through solar system and are also lees expensive then your electricity bills. They are comparatively less expensive then solar energy. It lessens your electric bills by 50 to 90 percent. Which is satisfactory for an average household. They don’t require much maintenance as they work automatically most of the time. You can search websites and can easily find out the wind location near your home. An advice from an engineer before starting your work may help a lot.
The small scale hydroelectric powers are also known as Micro hydro. They do not harm the environment like the large hydroelectric powers do. The large hydroelectric powers damage the environmental systems on a large scale which becomes a nuisance for the people living near by the rivers or dams.
It is the most cost-effective way to generate energy. It requires 2 gallons per minute of flowing water. It also requires a shed on the top of the water to protect it from the changing weather.
Geothermal power is maintenance free and lasts for a long time as it is built underground. It lasts till 25 to 50 years. Geothermal works using the heat from underground and is also reasonable if someone wishes to built it at home.
These are the few ways thorough which people can generate energy at home by saving their expenses.
