Get ready for the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE midday on August 21. Please travel to the path of totality to experience this somewhat rare and marvelous event. The path is from Oregon across the country to South Carolina. The moon's shadow will travel across the land at 1500 miles per hour.

This Sunset picture was taken 1/2 mile away from the Jacobs wind generator located at Kansas Wind Power. Click on picture for larger view. Tower is 75 feet high. The blade diameter is 13.5 feet. The very heavy, slow speed, direct drive generator is rated: 32-40 volts DC, 65 amps. Unit weighs about 550 lbs.    © 1978 Kansas Wind Power 

 

Home Electric Systems for on or off grid

Make your own  home electricity with alternative energy Wind Generators and Solar Electric Modules (also called Photovoltaic or PV). The PV modules generate electricity when exposed to light, have extremely long life, no moving parts and almost no maintenance. Installing a home energy system is within the grasp of many people. You can start small and add on as needed. Many homes in the USA and world wide are already using wind and solar electricity. They are statements to reducing pollution, waste, dependence on fossil fuels and increasing independence and self-reliance.

Make your home, cabin, farm, camper or RV better and be more self-reliant. There is always a risk of natural disasters and conflicts. Be prepared with sources of electricity, water, food, fuel, etc. A disruption in commerce, no matter the cause, will catch many people dependent on others to bail them out. Become more prepared so you will be in a position to help others and not be a burden to your community.

Basic Engine Generator System

Some systems start out with just battery, inverter and engine generator. The inverter quietly powers the house. An engine generator is used periodically to recharge battery or power loads to large for inverter. Solar modules or wind generator can be added to help charge battery and reduce engine generator run time. A gasoline, propane or diesel generator can also be used for backup power for on grid house.

A home alternate energy system might include:

1000 watt wind turbine generator on tilt-up tower
Four 300 watt PV modules on a Pole Mount
Power boosting Charge controller (MPPT)
TriMetric Battery Monitor Meter (battery “fuel gauge”)
Deep cycle batteries with battery Desulfator
Inverter to convert battery power into AC electricity
DC circuit breakers
DC loads such as water pump, lights, fans, refrigerator


This system could provide 3.7 kilowatt hours per day from wind in a 10 mph average wind area. Solar could provide another 2-6 KWH/day depending on climate. A small system of 1 or 2 PV Modules is commonly used for RVs, campers, water pumping or as a starter system. An engine powered generator can be used as a backup to power large loads and to help charge battery during low wind and solar periods. Solar or Wood fired water heaters are a great way to provide hot water and not burden your energy system. The TriMetric Battery Monitor is a good meter to monitor the battery bank status for home, cabin, RV, boats and electric vehicles.

Small systems can be 12 volts.  Medium or large systems are 24 or 48 volt.

We encourage people to be more energy efficient so their system can be smaller, cost less and reduce their cost of living from now on.
