Wouldn’t it be great if we can produce our own green power source? If we can do that, we don’t should pay power expenses or gasoline anymore for the cars. Although we can get most of the equipment, the rest will need to be done on our own.
Take solar or wind energy for instance. We already know how to harness and make it. If you want to make one, do some research on the web and then set up the system yourself.
To have solar energy, you have got to purchase an inverter, battery, charge controller, solar panels, some wires and support structure. The only difference with wind energy is that you require a fan. Once you’ve all you need, you can place it all together.
If you are not skillful, you will be happy to know that some companies sell the entire system. By buying it from them and having it installed by their experts, you are sure that there won’t be any problems the moment you switch it on.
There is one more thing you need before you can use one or the two green energy sources. Before you buy the materials or the system, make sure you have a flat area that is about a hundred square feet or so because it occupies a lot of space.
For people who do not hold the space or the budget to utilize both these sources of energy, another option is to create your own biofuels.
Biofuels are used in many countries and they get it from harvesting corn, sugar and other crops. Luckily, you don’t need a farm to produce it because you can also make your own using some recycled waste.
A good example of that is vegetable oil which we use for cooking. To turn this in to a biofuel, we first filter it by warming up the liquid and then filtering this with a coffee filter. The next step is to remove the water additionally by boiling it once again at 100 degrees for a short period of time.
We need to know the quantity of lye contained in the vegetable oil so we do this using a method referred to as titration. When we are done with that, we now mix sodium hydroxide to make sodium methoxide.
The process of converting used vegetable oil just before it becomes a biofuel takes a long time and it must be warmed up the entire time. This is done so the fuel we generate is natural in support of when this is achieved that we give it time to cool.
Simply how much biofuel we produce after all the work differs but you will have an idea of just how much you have generated since this is usually the one you see floating at the very top. If there’s still some glycerin present, filter it again. From there, you have now your very own backyard biofuel which can be used and even sell to those who’re just as concerned with the surroundings as you are.
By making our own green energy sources, we make ourselves less dependent on gasoline in its various forms to power our heater, home or car. Why don’t a lot of people do it? Well simply because they don’t have the time to make it and would rather rely on someone else to do it for them.
