Alternative Power For Your Home

Alternative sources of power generation for home electricity such as solar energy, wind energy and water turbines have become increasingly popular because they can help reduce your energy bill as well as provide backup power in times of emergency.

I have long been interested in finding ways to supplement my energy use in order to reduce my dependence on the existing electricity infrastructure as well as reduce my impact on the planet.

However, such a project can be daunting as there are so many factors to consider such as deciding what size of a system you need, how to integrate it into your existing electrical system, and technical things such as charge controllers, inverters, and batteries.

Fortunately I came across this book which helps to demystify these things:
Power with Nature: Alternative Energy Solutions for Homeowners

This book covers everything you need to know to start reducing your dependence on the grid. If you are interested in finding out more about what direction to go in, this book is for you.
