Bills are a daily reminder to us that our money is never really our own.
With constant payments going to toward the gas, electricity, water, phone, insurances, food, rent, mortgage it’s no wonder we feel overwhelmed and frustrated as we’re forever stuck running on the spot, never advancing anywhere. Some days it seems that all we work for is to pay the bills never mind having any money left over to put away for a rainy day.
There is a solution that increasingly more people are opting for these days allowing them to save more money at the end of the month in reduced utility bills by living independently of the main energy grid. Not only does this save money as you essentially produce your own energy but you can actually make money by selling your excess energy back to the power companies.
The concept of “net metering” came about during the 1970’s when Federal legislation named the “Public Utilities Regulatory Policies Act” was passed enabling any residential energy producer residing in the United States the right to sell excess power to their local energy provider at retail rates. There are currently over 30 states in the US that support net metering, to find out if yours is one of them you can find out here:
Earth 4 Energy is the ideal solution if you wish to choose this path. Not only do you get to keep more of your hard earned money but you’re also doing something beneficial for the environment at the same time.
With Earth 4 Energy you’ll learn how to assemble your own solar panels and wind generator. The advantage to these forms of energy is that they are fully renewable unlike fossil fuels where there is only a finite amount ever produced and when that runs out, that’s it.
The usual set up costs associated with independent energy is usually steep and without of reach of most people, however with Earth 4 Energy you can learn how to be up and running for under $200. You’ll find that the savings over time will enable you to recoup your cost within a year, a shorter timeframe if you choose to sell energy back to the power company.
Why alternate energy sources are the way to go:
As mentioned previously because the energy source is renewable and unlimited and doesn’t harm the environment as it captures, stores and expends energy, in fact there are no carbon emissions associated with this form of energy production.
Using “Photovoltaic” systems such as solar energy reduces the need for energy storing dry cell batteries. Sadly batteries when past their usefulness are discarded into our landfills at a staggering rate of 3 billion, and that’s just per year. These batteries are laced with toxic chemicals such as Mercury and Cadmium and Lead and corrosive acids like sulphuric acid which can cause severe burns when in contact with the skin, and like with any landfill, each has the potential to leak and leach contaminants into our environment.
Incorporating solar and wind energy into your life on a bigger scale reduces the need for these batteries and the less they clog up and pollute our landfills.
This is one of the cleanest sources of energy production that doesn’t emit CO2 greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, in fact over a 30 year period you would have saved over 7 tonnes of CO2 emission just with your energy use alone. That’s one huge carbon footprint reduction. This also means that you’re contributing to cleaner, emission free air for the future which means better health for everyone.
So if you want to reduce your lifelong carbon footprint by over 7 tonnes and truly do something of benefit for your environment, then using Earth 4 Energy could be the solution you’re looking for.
