The Basics of Homemade Energy
Every day, we all consume electric energy, whether through the use of handy MP3
players, laptops, stereo systems, televisions or massive home heating and air conditioning
systems. We all need and consume power, yet most of us have never considered making
Can you build your own electric generator? Is that even possible? Yes. But before we
look into the “hows” and “whys”, let’s talk about electricity.
Electricity is a form of energy just like heat and light. Naturally occurring electric
sources, however, are hard to find, and most only produce very little power. Take for
example the static electricity that makes your arm hair stand up in an air-conditioned
room. Fortunately, one basic law about energy is that it can be converted from one form
to another. Therefore, our electric energy is just a product of converting any energy
source to electricity. And because of that, we can miniaturize electric power generation.
The most common way to produce homemade electricity is through the use of a solar
panel. Solar panels consist of photovoltaic cells, or in simple terms, light energy to
electricity converters. Light rays from the sun activate the photovoltaic cells which
produce voltage. The voltage produced from each cell is relatively small. Because of this,
cells are either connected in series or parallel in order to produce the desired voltage
level. Of course, solar panels have drawbacks. First is that they are very expensive to
buy. Secondly, they have a low efficiency rating compared to other electric generators.
So if you plan to produce your homemade electricity using solar panels, just prepare your
Another common way to produce homemade electricity is to convert wind to electricity.
A wind generator is used for this method. Basically, a wind generator is a dynamo (the
general name for any motor or generator) connected to a turbine that is rotated by the
force of the wind. The turbine collects the wind energy, while the dynamo converts the
mechanical force of the wind to electricity. As stated above, a dynamo is a general term
for a motor. If a dynamo converts electrical energy to mechanical energy, it is a motor. If
it converts mechanical energy to electricity, it is a generator. Compared to solar panels,
wind generators provide a relatively higher efficiency. However, the wind turbine must
be oriented where the wind is strongest for better electric production.
Both solar panels and wind generators will not produce electricity if there is no sunlight
and wind respectively. Storing their generated energy in a battery is one solution to this
problem. Care must be properly observed when using batteries, especially those with high
“mAh” ratings. When short-circuited, they can produce fatal levels of current.
There are several viable options for creating your own homemade electricity. It is just a
matter of a little research, a little trial-and-error, and of course a little patience before you
can generate practical amounts of electric energy. Just remember to take safety
precautions when dealing with electricity. You don’t want to fry your Ipod, or worse –
There’s an amazing new discovery when it comes to free HOMEMADE ELECTRICITY.
This something that has never been seen before, and it’s pretty amazing. It works in every
home and it requires only a small amount of space. You can eliminate your power bill by
a huge percentage or even completely, depending on how you implement the magniworks
generator. Works in all conditions, can work in extreme hot or cold without any problem.
The Material needed to build the magniwork generator is cheap and easily accessible
anywhere in the world.
