Earth4Energy Review – Michael Harvey’s Earth 4 Energy Manual Walkthrough

One of the first DIY home solar power manual I bought when I was doing my research on solar energy is  Earth4Energy by Michael Harvey. My first impression on the page was very good because it has been professionally designed. Other home solar power guides did not have the same level of web design.

A quick search on Google for Michael Harvey did not reveal any useful information. He may be a real person or he may not. Harvey might be a fictional name used by the publisher’s marketing team. Anyhow, what we want is the message, not the messenger in Earth4Energy.

Here’s a list of points from my Earth4Energy review:

  • The information was presented in simple English and easy to understand.
  • Lots of pictures and diagrams on home solar power and wind energy system (very helpful!).
  • Online video links in to e-books showing how to solder solar cells and how to make the wind turbine blades
  • Suggestion on the best types of solar cells to use.
  • Suggestion on where to find cheap parts for your DIY project…which is good if you are working on a tight budget.
  • Earth4Energy also offers full online support. Just send them an e-mail if you have any question.

Earth4Energy Member’s Page Review & Walkthrough

If you are wondering what you’ll get when you buy Earth4Energy manual, here’s a quick walkthough. After you have completed all the online payment process, you will end up at the secured download page. This is where you’ll get to order the Earth4Energy hardcopy book if you like.

Earth4Energy Member’s Page

When you scroll down, you will see the section where you will  get to download the DIY solar panel videos prepared by Michael Harvey. On my last count, there are more than 9 high definition (HD) instructional videos in the member’s area and they keep adding new ones  from time to time.

HD Instructional Videos

There are more than 2 gigabyte of video data to be downloaded. If you have a slow internet connection, you may want to order the videos in DVD format and have it delivered to your doorstep.

DIY Solar Panel Videos

Apart from the homemade Photovoltaic (PV) panel videos, as a bonus, you will have access to an online video library, green energy product recommendation, a biodiesel guide, solar system parts shopping cart and solar tax rebate forms for USA and Canada.

Earth4Energy Product Guarantee

Since Earth 4 Energy is offered through Clickbank, you are covered by their 60 Days Money Back Guarantee. Meaning, if you bought Harvey’s manual and do not see any value in it, just ask for your money back within 60 days from the purchase date. This is one of the best value added feature for buying e-books on the web. I don’t think you will get that if you were to buy a book from Borders or Barnes and Nobles stores.

My guess is, most of the people that buy Michael Harvey’s e-book would not have the skill nor the time to build their own home solar power system. Nonetheless, it is good to have the knowledge.

When you are ready to outsource the project to a professional contractor, at least you will know what are the parts and components required to get the job done. This is to safeguard you from being overcharged by the contractor. It is always good to be prudent.

If you are looking to use renewable energy source such as solar power to supplement your home electricity consumption, I hope the Earth4Energy review above has been helpful for you. Click on the link below to get Harvey’s manual right now.

    Is the Michael Harvey guy for real? How come I cant find any of his personal information inthe web. No Facebook page, no Linkin page….nothing!

  21. Will February 11, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    Hi George,

    I agree with you. I couldn’t find much personal information on Michael Harvey also. I think I know why.

    Most of the publishers on the internet use a fictional character to market their product. Since there is no personal contact on a web page, it is very hard to sell anything. The best approach is to come up with a human face in order to create a personal connection with the visitor.

    My guess is, Michael Harvey is just a character created by a marketing agency for the Earth4Energy web site. If you look around, this is common practice for most web publishers.

    Likewise, I’ve been unable to find out much about this author.

  32. JohnnyBgood June 19, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    One good way of getting cheap solar panels is when a few chip in and bulk buy, however, this may not always be possible…
    Building your own solar panels is the next best thing and I think e4e is a great instructional product.
    My take on it is this; you might not be able to eliminate your power bills or even halve it to begin with, but knowing that you can do so, is a good feeling of confidence!
    I’m converted and I certainly do believe that confidence can move mountains.

    57. It’s really a great and useful piece of information. I am glad that you shared this helpful info with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

    You need not be either a scientist or a shrewd technician, to assemble home- made solar cells. There are excellent packages that help you make your own solar cell system. Even a person, who has not attempted any self made projects earlier, can do it with much ease, if he is prepared to do the labor himself.

    Do it yourself (DIY) solar panel kits are abundant for sale in the markets and with the help of the guide and the parts available in the kit, you can make the product at a cheaper rate. As has always been, the Sun is greatest single source of energy the Earth is blessed with, for billions of years.

    Mankind has been dependent on Sun`s energy for all basic needs including starting fires, keeping warm and drying food. With the invention of solar cells, the people from all over the world have turned to solar energy, with the help of home made solar panels.

  35. Will December 22, 2011 at 5:32 pm

    The Sun energy can be used for various purposes and can be harnessed using Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, the different uses can be anything from solar hot water to completely off the grid applications. Solar energy is the answer to our growing energy needs and the possible solution to the increasing energy bills.

    Now there is more awareness about the solar energy and even various governments are offering incentives to make it more effective. The most effective and cheap option is heating with solar panel, many have started using it and others are exploring the options including you.

  36. Will December 22, 2011 at 5:34 pm

    I do agree with your point Johnny. The first step is to decide using solar panels to reduce the growing energy bills, the big confusion is that people think that they need more solar panels in a big building, which is not true, it totally depends on the consumption of electricity in a particular building.

    There are amazing appliances available today, even a coffee maker consumes around 1200 watts of electricity in one use, just imagine if the coffee maker is used more than once, how much electricity will be consumed. The design and the number of solar panels required for your home depends upon some factors, the first is that how much electricity is consumed in your home and the solar resources available in the area where you live.

  37. Will December 22, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    As you said Ramesh, implementing solar technology at home can begin in a small way. The initial is to take firm decision to install the solar panels; you can start with heating your water, but why stop there when you can use it in other areas as well. The use of photovoltaic panels will give you energy as per your requirements and will also solve your energy needs. The best part is that once you start implementation of solar you will automatically look for other options where you can use this energy.

    The new generation Photovoltaic (PV) solar power panel cells use thin film made of copper, indium, gallium and selenium (CIGS) to convert energy from the Sun into electricity which can be used for various purposes. These solar panels are very effective as compared to the traditional one; this can be termed as second wave of solar technology which was thought impossible earlier.

    You can derive maximum benefit if solar panels are installed correctly, placing these panels at the right angle and direction make a huge difference both in the benefits and power generation.

    There are several resources which you can find online and can get useful information and guideline to make your system more efficient. The primary application normally noticed in the urban areas is location of grid interties solar electric system which generates solar electricity and is routed through electric utility grid, offsetting a home or business electric consumption and even some cases reversing the electric meters.

    Utility companies buy the surplus power from the home owners who take initiative in installing the solar panels. This not only saves money on the energy bills but you also start getting credit from the companies. You can go online and explore the numerous options about solar energy; this will give you freedom of energy bills at the same time you will contribute to the society.

    Hi Will, how are you? It’s been a while since last posting here and how funny I seem to end up here near exactly the same date as last year! Anyhow, just wanted to share on my progress since then and hope this information can help your readers…

    Since back in 2011, I upgraded from building my own solar panels, to finding cheap ones – BRAND NEW! I had the best luck on eBay. The first system which I built was a basic but powerful off grid system. It’s comprised of 1 x AGM Deep Cycle Battery of 12 volts, 260 Ah – A 2000 watt pure sine wave inverter with peak power of 4000 watts – A 30 amp charger controller and 2 x 250 watt solar panels…

    Now, when I tested this system, this is what it powered and also some limitations. It powered Plasma TV, several lights, a small microwave oven, a heater, drills, routers and the list goes on… But here is where it fails: It failed on the hot water jug, however, it powered a smaller one – It failed on an 1800 watt micro wave oven, but easily powered a much smaller one – The heater ran on number 1 setting but failed at number 2 – It powered the toaster oven without a problem… Please be aware, everything was not powered at once! For example, while the fridge was running off, of the inverter, when I fired up the toaster oven, everything shutdown. Of course, a larger inverter would have more than the capabilities to power more than one appliance. Please note, I don’t recommend to power anything over 500 watts for prolonged periods with the setup described, as it would drain the battery very quickly. And if the battery drained quickly, then you would hope you have enough solar power, to restore full capacity within the time gap that sunlight is available.

    “please note: inductive loads are not the same as resistive loads i.e. a drill rated at 250 watts, may need up to 6 times the power to start it, example, 1500 watts – Where is, an incandescent lamp, which is a resistive load, will only need the power rating of the lamp to start it”

    This system could be used for situations that require short burst of high energy, such as the kettle for example. It could even be used to power the toaster. I have many applications for my system and I just can’t get over solar! I absolutely love it and am having plenty of fun with it. Just recently, I won 6 x 230 watt Polycrystalline solar panels from eBay, for just $680.00! I am currently planning to test living completely off the grid, just to see what kind of problems I may run into and get better experience. I will come back here and share the results with you and your readers. Anyhow, I need to cut this short with a tip. Save currently good deals to your watch list on eBay and monitor it closely. Wait till last seconds and then put your maximum bid down and see. I have saved thousands that way; I think anyone can do it too.

    Cheers, JohnnyBgood
