One of the keys to unlocking nature’s secret reserves of energy is learning how to make wind power. Nobody will contest the rising electricity bills of people all over the globe who are complaining about spending more. Wind is something that will never run out and is worth a closer look by anybody interested in checking out a cheap and effective way of producing your own energy. The energy output is the same as a more traditional venue for energy production. The building materials are simple. Besides that, the benefits pile up quick. Who wouldn’t want to save money and help clean up the environment by requiring less from fossil fuels?

The primary method for producing electricity is simple. One heats water to the point it turns to steam. The steam is then pressurized and passed over a turbine fan. The fan spins a generator in the system and electricity is produced. This is the method used with nuclear power, hydropower, coal power and so on. The only issue is how you heat the water.

Staying away from commercial energy drinks can only add to your long term energy. Doctors are now saying that a simple glass of water with lemon juice can do much to activate a sluggish system. This balances ph levels making protein absorption more efficient. This is real green energy. Medical research has also shown that a tablespoon of peanut butter and a glass of water, as unsophisticated as it sounds, can provide longer lasting, better energy than a cup of coffee. All of this sounds a bit unsexy, I know, but more and more people are starting to realize the solution to the energy crisis in your body can be dealt with by a little common sense.

Of all the energy used in the United States, 39% comes from oil, 23% from natural gas, 24% from coal, 6% from hydropower, 7% from nuclear and only 1% from renewable energy such as solar. Americans get 51% of their electrical power from coal, 20% from nuclear, 18% from natural gas, 2% from petroleum, 9% from renewable energy. Just imagine the money that could be saved by converting to solar energy.

The fly-fishing themed film, “A River Runs Through It” was filmed in 1992. The story takes place in Missoula, Montana, and the bulk of the filming occurred on the Gallatin and Madison rivers, near Bozeman.

The good news for all of us is that materials (in the form of instructional blueprints) are available in bookstores and on the Internet. They can help us build our own solar panels in our backyard. The only investment to build each PV panel is less than two hundred dollars and a weekend. If you already have experience, you will get them completed within a shorter time.

The major oil companies don’t want you to know all this. Their profits depend upon it. But you can get ahead of the game. Convert your car to hydropower and you reduce your carbon footprint, help the environment – oh and you save money!
