Wind Turbines

Wind Turbines

Wind Turbines use the power of the wind to generate electricity. The United Kingdom is one of the windiest places in Europe and therefore a model place to generate electricity from this natural resource. As well as large-scale wind farms that generate much electricity, you can also install a smaller wind turbine on your property for personal use. Often referred to as ‘micro-wind’ turbines, these can power your lighting and provide electricity for household appliances.
There are generally two different types of the wind turbine. One that is in the garden or well-exposed position and one which is mounted on the roof of a house and it varies, from property to property, which is the most ideal. In some places, you can even make money from your turbines, by selling the electricity you have generated to the National Grid.

Biomass Heaters

This can be as simple as burning some wood logs or chips and heating a single room in your home or it can go further and heat up water or power the central heating. You can easily buy a biomass heater and they are relatively cheap compared with the cost of other energy generators. They would certainly be advised as a good thing to fit in your home for newcomers to green living.

What You’ll Need

You will need an area of your home, that is dry, to store your wood. Unless you have a vehicle that can collect large quantities of wood, then you will need to have your wood delivered. You must also have a chimney and flue in your home. A flue is to help air movement from the biomass heater to the outside of your house and they can be fitted to an existing chimney.

Depending on the size of your house and roof, it is a job that can be completed in quite a short space of time. If you have extensive knowledge of DIY then you would be recommended to stock some top of the range tools, such as a Makita LXT202 and a nail gun. You would, therefore, cut even more costs by not having to hire the professionals.
