Home > Press > Home Based Generation of Electricity Works Efficiently To Provide Homes with DC Current

Abstract:
Wintergreen Research announced that it has set a release date of October 30, 2007 for its book, "After Florida and the Netherlands Are Under Water It's Toooooo Late." This home energy book details how locally generated electricity pays for itself within five years and immediately helps to avoid the deleterious effects of global warming. WinterGreen Research's online Return on Investment (ROI) analysis tool, included in the cost of the book, allows the personalization of energy inputs for every situation, enabling users to enter different electric bills, and different amounts of micro generator investment in different time frames to see how a particular situation will work out. The thesis of the book is that ordinary people can work together achieve quality energy policy by utilizing a battery with DC current system within their homes.

Home Based Generation of Electricity Works Efficiently To Provide Homes with DC Current

Lexington, MA | Posted on September 20th, 2007

The aim of this book is to encourage people to reduce global warming as a means of saving both money and the environment. As the energy from solar and wind micro generators is "green", there are no emissions to deplete the ozone layer. A prime example for the need to decrease emissions is Britton Hill, Florida, which lies a mere 345 feet above sea level. As global warming increases, so too will sea levels. Imagine the impact on real estate values in Florida - underwater property would be inexpensive, but you can't build a house there. "Go buy a micro generator windmill, go buy a solar panel, and go buy a thin film battery," says Susan Eustis, President of WinterGreen Research and primary author. "Get started now. Wind and solar micro generators can be used now in combination with thin film solid state batteries to significantly supplement electricity provided on the regional grid."

The concept of generating on-site electricity for homes can be applied to gas/electric vehicles as well. With gasoline prices inching ever closer to the $8.00 gallon mark, hybrid cars are destined to become more popular and drivers are sure to look for alternatives to plugging the car into the electricity grid. The ability to store wind and solar generated power in thin film batteries in residential homes creates the charge that is needed. Ordinary people can now take control of their own energy needs. "Local DC energy initially can be used to power hybrid car batteries, small appliances, electronics, and LED lights," according Dr. Susie Eustis, a nanotechnology specialist and co-author. "Wind generators and solar panels have reached maturity. The richest man in China sells solar panels. Home energy infrastructure is used to extract power from renewable sources efficiently, creating the chance for making home energy more efficient."
