A recent Midwest snowstorm that dropped 15 inches of snow in some areas and featured wind gusts of up to 50 mph knocked out power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses in Michigan. In response, Power4Patriots suggests that homeowners get off the electrical grid and generate their own solar and wind power.
Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
According to CBS News and other media outlets, tens of thousands of people in Michigan were without power following a winter storm featuring heavy snow and high winds Feb. 26-27, 2013. The storm previously killed six people in Kansas and stranded hundreds of vehicles in Wisconsin.
The storm is the latest in a long serious of weather events that have left countless millions of Americans in the dark. The best way to keep the lights and heat on is by becoming independent of the vulnerable U.S. power grid, says Power4Patriots, which recommends that people learn how to generate their own electricity through solar panels and wind turbines.
The Power4Patriots system is an environmentally friendly way to cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent while making a home, cabin or RV self-sufficient. The system is a collection of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters.
It 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; 10 Frequently Asked Questions videos; and 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.
Even when a storm does not knock out power, homeowners can get stressed out wondering if it will. Check out this blog that describes the single best reason for using the Power4Patriots system – peace of mind.
