  3. 3. HOW TO GENERATE YOUR OWN HOME ENERGYThere is a growing trend towards homes hat are being powered by alternative energysources from solar panels to wind turbines and from hydrogen fuel cells to biomass.Building your own power generation system is becoming easier and more cost effectivethan purchasing these systems pre-built and as a result more and more homes are takingadvantage of the technology and saving money.There is a massive need and desire to become less reliant on fossil fuels and becomemore independent by manufacturing our own energy, locally. Living off the grid is nolonger just about having power when living remotely, but rather about having your ownpower whilst living in areas that have grid facilities, but not wanting to have to pay largecorporations for power that can be generated far cheaper through reliable off gridtechnology.When listening to people like Remi Wilkinson, the senior analyst with Carbon Free, itbecomes obvious that over the next decade or two, the micro generation of energythrough solar panels and wind turbines as well as magnetic generators will begin to cutdramatically into the profit margin of these large corporations. They will have to standup and take notice of what the average man on the street is doing. Changes in the waycorporations run their businesses will have to be implemented.Remi is part of a group called Carbon Free which studies the growing trend of domestichomes using alternative energy. The trend is picking up momentum due to governmentrecommendations as well as the increase in easy to follow instruction manuals that areavailable online at extremely reasonable prices. It is also gaining a lot of interest becauseof the rising cost of oil and other fossil fuels and the huge impact that this has on theenvironmentCarbon Free have concluded that if prices of energy remain the same or increase in thefuture, then the increase in homes that take advantage of micro energy generationthrough wind, solar and magnetic energy devices will be extremely large. They suspectthat the transition from fossil fuel use to alternative energy for domestic applicationscould mimic the transition from library and postal service to the internet for dataretrieval in the home.The speed at which that change has taken place could effectively put the largecorporations out of the domestic market within just a few decadesWhile energy companies are trying to find ways to ensure that they do not lose their

Already thecomponents for building these devices are becoming cheaper and easier to locate andmany of the companies selling alternative energy devices are finding themselves havingto lower their prices to remain competitive. This has resulted in a win-win situation forthose willing to take the plunge and go green. SIMPLE TIPS
