Nashville, TN (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
April showers might bring May flowers, but April snowstorms bring a lot of problems.
According to the Aberdeen News and other media outlets, snowstorms in the Dakotas this week dumped as much as 17.3 inches on Bismarck and lesser amounts in other areas, resulting in power being knocked out for at least 100,000 residents.
The snowstorms are the latest in a series of weather events that have left countless millions of Americans in the dark. The best way to keep the lights and heat on is by becoming independent of the vulnerable U.S. power grid, says Power4Patriots, which recommends that people learn how to generate their own electricity through solar panels and wind turbines.
The Power4Patriots system is an environmentally friendly way to cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent while making a home, cabin or RV self-sufficient. The system is a collection of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters.
It 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; 10 Frequently Asked Questions videos; and 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.
Some people wonder if the Power4Patriots system will complement and back-up their existing connection to the conventional power grid, or whether it would replace that. Check out this video to learn the answer to that question.
