The Obama Administration is seeking to make solar power more affordable for lower income families. Power4Patriots officials applaud that effort and encourage Americans to install solar panels and wind turbines at residential and commercial locations.
Aug 19, 2015 /prREACH/ -- Solar energy may soon be within the reach of lower income families. According to a recent Huffington Post article, a major new solar initiative launched by the Obama Administration seeks to help lower income families reduce their energy costs by making solar power available to them in the form of more affordable solar panels for their residences.
Obama’s new solar plan’s components include a National Community Solar Partnership designed to unlock access to solar for households and businesses that are renters or do not have adequate roof space to install solar systems, as well as an installation goal of 300 megawatts of renewable energy in federally subsidized housing.
Solar panel costs are high, but officials at Power4Patriots provide a do-it-yourself method that saves significant amounts of money. Power4Patriots is a recently updated series of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. It was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages.
“The benefits of solar energy should extend to American families of all income levels," said Allen Baler, Partner at 4Patriots LLC.
"People can decrease energy bills and reduce their dependency on the vulnerable electrical grid by installing solar panels and wind turbines on their properties. Those actions will allow them to keep electricity flowing during blackouts and reduce their monthly power costs.”
Inexpensive and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own, environmentally friendly sources of energy. The system includes six videos demonstrating how to build a solar panel, including choosing the right materials, finding the right site for the system and avoiding costly mistakes, as well as two instruction manuals with step-by-step, illustrated directions. It also includes four videos and two instruction manuals detailing how to build a wind turbine.
Baler says that installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one’s home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent. On average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine. Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines for their residential and commercial properties spend three to four times that amount.
The time commitment to build a solar panel ranges from two to four hours, with the first one requiring more time than subsequent panels. A wind turbine requires a handful of hours to build.
