Sep 17, 2014 /prREACH/ -- Large solar flares shooting toward the Earth last weekend, according to NBC News and many other media outlets, were a stark reminder that the U.S. electrical grid is vulnerable.
Power4Patriots warns Americans that they need to be prepared for a shutdown of the grid, which could result from a cyber attack, a physical attack, or an EMP induced by massive solar flares or a terrorist attack. The company encourages homeowners to purchase or make their own solar panels and have them installed on their property in order to save money and lighten the load on an overtaxed electrical grid.
Power4Patriots is a recently updated series of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar air 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.
"Installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one's home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent," said 4Patriots Partner Allen Baler. "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 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.
Power4Patriots was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages. Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own environmentally friendly sources of energy.
