Home Wind Turbines – The Pros & Cons

As we move into a world where our natural resources are being depleted more and more every day, we need to look at alternative sources for our huge energy consumption.

Some of the natural resources readily available such as solar, wind and biofuel are unlimited and attention needs to be focused on developing ideas on how to harness the greatest potential from these sources.

Solar Energy For Homes

There are many positive aspects of solar energy, such as usually being readily available, no polluting problems, and no other energy costs after panels are installed.

However, solar panels are a big expense for an average family, intermittent weather can be a problem, and sunlight is only available during the daytime hours.

Also, if a large building wanted to consider solar polar as an option, these solar panels would take up a lot of room so it might not be possible in a larger city with space constraints.

Wind Power For Homes

A second alternative choice could be wind power.

Again, wind turbines have no greenhouse effect, but they are tall and not a pleasing view as well as being loud.

They would be impractical in a city because of the space constraints, but in a rural community that has a lot of wind potential the turbines would be of benefit to a smaller community that wanted to become more self-sufficient, such as a large farming business.

However, the wind turbines are only useful when there is wind, so they are dependent on the weather.

Several parts of the country have used this type of energy source to their advantage, especially if you look at the wind turbine farms in California and other states.

Biofuel Energy For Homes

A third type of alternative energy source is biofuel.

One of the first types of biofuel used was wood, and some people still use wood as a viable source of energy for heating their homes.

A large cattle or hog farm would be an ideal business to harness this type of energy as they could use all the manure from the operation of their farm.

Eventually this type of energy source could be available to everyone, even to use in cars.

We use some of this now when we purchase gas with 10% ethanol from corn.

But converting that corn, or possibly in the future, the manure, into ethanol could be more take more energy than we are gaining.

And when we use corn in our gasoline, this means that less corn is available to use as a food source.

Until it’s possible to put these and any other potential alternative energy sources to use, we must continue to do our part by recycling what we can and wasting as little non-renewable energy as possible.

As we move into the future, we need to be aware of new technological advances and be willing to make a sacrifice in order to keep our non-renewable energy sources and use our free energy sources in the best manner possible.

Everyone needs to do their part to be responsible for a better world for our children; we always need to have pioneers who are willing to be trailblazers.

    I have an idea; please tell me what you think.
    Let’s raise money to put wind and/or solar on our local schools. Children and parents would be more open to learning when it is right there in front of them. This would save money for the local school districts: another big advantage. Land use is not an issue because the solar would go on the building, acres and acres of buildings. The goals for fundraising could be small at first, 5% of the current usage, but the interest would grow as the panels are installed.
    Soon fundraising would increase, as would the percentage of renewable energy.
    We all agree that wind and solar could make a big difference with our carbon footprint, but we also need to address the issue of importing oil and exporting money.
    I have asked people if they would help with fundraising, money or time, and everyone loves the idea. With years of frustration and guilt about this problem, this is a way to do something. It makes sense to raise funds for solar/wind on a school, people say “why have we not done this sooner?”
    Think of how many dollars have been raised to educate people about the problems with this issue when it would have been much better to raise the money to solve the problem.
    It could be argued that this is only a small, tiny improvement. But I think it is a huge start, because as we fundraise for the purchase of solar and wind on our local schools we are educating the public at the same time. Hopefully churches, clinics and hospitals won’t be far behind.
