Create your own green energy

Wouldn’t it be great if we could create our own source of green energy? If we achieve this, we will no longer have to pay the electricity or gas bills for our cars.

Take for example solar or wind energy. We already know how to exploit and produce it. If you want to produce this energy, do a little research online and then configure the system yourself.

To obtain solar energy, you will need to purchase an inverter, battery, charge controller, solar panels, cables and support structure. The only difference with wind power is that you need a fan.Once you have everything you need, you can put it all together.

If you are not qualified, you will be happy to know that some companies sell the whole system. By buying it from them and having it installed by their experts, you are sure that there will be no problems when you turn it on.
There is one more thing you must have before you can use one or two green power sources. Before buying the materials or the system, make sure you have a flat surface of about a hundred square feet because it takes up a lot of space.

For those who don’t have the space or the budget to use these energy sources, another option is to produce their own biofuels.

Biofuels are used in many countries and they get them from harvesting corn, sugar and additional crops. Luckily, you don’t need a farm to produce it as you can craft one using recycled scraps.

A good example is the vegetable oil we use for cooking. To turn it into biofuel, we filter it by first heating the liquid and then filtering it with a coffee filter.The next step is to remove the water even by boiling it again at 100 degrees for a short time.

We need to know how much lye is in vegetable oil and we do this with a process called titration. When we are done, we now mix sodium hydroxide to make sodium methoxide. The process of converting used vegetable oil takes some time and needs to be constantly heated.

By creating our own sources of green energy, we make ourselves less dependent on gas in its various forms to supply our heating, our house or our car. Why don’t many people do this? Well, simply because they don’t have time to do it and prefer to rely on someone else to do it for them.
