Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) October 04, 2013
According to a Sept. 30, 2013, report from ABC News and other media outlets, Ikea will begin selling solar panels to customers in the U.K. before deciding whether to expand sales to the U.S. and other countries.
An official for the home furnishings chain was quoted as saying that the company wants to make solar energy “an affordable reality for everyone.” Power4Patriots shares the same goal as the home furnishings chain, offering a less expensive alternative for do-it-yourselfers.
While commending Ikea for its decision to enter the solar arena, Power4Patriots realizes how expensive pre-made solar panels are. That’s why it has developed a series of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar air heaters.
The system includes six videos demonstrating how to build a solar panel, including choosing the right materials, finding the right site for the system and avoiding costly mistakes, as well as two instruction manuals with step-by-step, illustrated directions. It also includes four videos and two instruction manuals detailing how to build a wind turbine.
The company says that installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one’s home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent. On average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine. Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines spend three to four times that amount. The time commitment to build a solar panel ranges from two to four hours, with the first one requiring more time than subsequent panels. A wind turbine requires a handful of hours to build.
Power4Patriots was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages. Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own, environmentally friendly sources of energy.
