The installation of alternative energy sources and around your home has the obvious advantage that is able to produce their own energy, thereby reducing energy costs from domestic suppliers, but can also be enjoyed government benefits high quality, where you pay for the electricity they produce but do not use it.
There are a number of different technologies can be analyzed to generate its own stream;
Solar panels are usually installed on the roof of your house, but can also be self-supporting. During the installation of the roof, you can choose to install the panels on the existing roof, or installing solar panels, replacing the existing tiles. While solar panels work best in sunny climates, but still operate in cloudy conditions.
With enough garden soil, you should consider installing one or more wind turbines or installing small wind turbines on the roof of his house. It is estimated that the UK receives approximately 40 percent of the wind energy in Europe, making it ideal for the installation of domestic wind turbines.
The Scots have a hydro, 10% of its electricity from hydropower. A number of these options is pumped during high demand, will produce water released from a reservoir of energy, and in times of low demand, the same water is pumped into the tank, ready to be published to later date if the comeback question.
Few homeowners will find themselves in a position to create a dam built with turbines and pumps, but for those lucky enough to find his house near a river, it can be a space for installing the wheel.
In addition to generating its own electricity, there are techniques that can be used to produce heat directly to your home, rather than to produce electricity for a heat generator can;
The source of heat pump
Beneath the surface, the temperature of the soil is maintained by the home rather constant, so that the installation of a ground circuit by circulating a mixture of water / anti-freeze is a tube may, for extracting heat from the ground to heat the house. More grinding more heat, but it needs to use the garden space more.
The sun’s heat can be used to heat water directly, instead of using solar panels to generate electricity and heat water with electricity. These generally use some form of matrix tubes inside panels, and tend to be much less effective in winter.
