More solar energy is being generated in San Antonio than in any other city in Texas. Power4Patriots officials commend city officials for the emphasis they’re placing on solar energy, and encourage homeowners across the country to disconnect from the electrical grid by installing solar panels and wind turbines on their property.
Sep 30, 2015 /prREACH/ -- As officials at Power4Patriots have been saying for years now, homeowners want to power their residences with solar energy. That is certainly the finding of Doyle Beneby, chief executive of CPS Energy in San Antonio, Texas, a city which boasts the most solar generating capacity of any other in the state and which ranks seventh among U.S. cities overall.
According to USA Today, Beneby has made solar a priority for generating both electricity and new jobs in Texas’ second largest city.
“San Antonio is a prime example of a place where people are really embracing solar energy to power their homes, but it’s happening all over,” said 4Patriots LLC Partner Allen Baler, whose company teaches people how to build their own, environmentally friendly sources of energy through its Power4Patriots product.
“Power4Patriots' DIY solar power system is ideal for people who wish to lower their power bills and keep electricity flowing during blackouts. Once they have solar panels and/or a wind turbine on their property, they’ll be much less dependent on the vulnerable electrical power grid.”
Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots is a recently updated series of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters.
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.
The costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine. 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.
“Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines spend three to four times that amount,” Baler said. “Installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one’s home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent.”
