How to Generate Home Renewable Energy

Reviewed and recommended:

Installing a homemade energy kit lowers your power bill by 90%
and help the environment.

But, until recently, it was pretty expensive. A professionally installed solar or wind energy generator could cost as much as $2,000. Even stand-alone conversion kits could sell for as much as $500.

Luckily, there is a new generation of conversion kits and guides which show how to generate electricity using natural earth resources with low cost materials which can be installed even if you have little or no technical knowledge .. in your own back yard!

We decided to review these new guides. Our key criteria were ease-of-use, affordability of materials, power savings, and speed of installation.

Overall, we were pleasantly surprised with the results - the technology does work, and if you pick the right guide, you could be up and running in a few hours.    Feel free to contact us with any questions.

We reviewed 11 energy guides-only 3 met our criteria:

  • Sizeable Power Savings-60% more power efficiency
  • Easy Setup-only a few hours, even for novices
  • Affordable Set-Up Cost (well under $100)

"Still the best Home Energy Product in 2008-2009..."

Home Made Energy  

By far the easiest-to-follow kit we came across - our own experience says you should set aside maybe half a day to buy the parts and get it fully installed.

This kit includes information for generating energy using solar panels and wind turbines. Now with step-by-step "how to" Videos!

This is the only kit that assumes absolutely no knowledge about power engineering. Impressively, our support ticket was responded to in under an hour (although it could take a little longer at weekends), and there is an unconditional 8 week money-back guarantee.

Best of all, the technology required is readily available and cheap - we (CNN DIY review team) were able to access all the parts needed for well under $100. Given that its proven to decrease the power bill by as much as 90%, in some cases even completely, you could well recoup your investment in under two weeks.

The installation can be done on any kind of house or building. Home Made Energy is aimed squarely at electricity "novices", and it is still our top pick for 2008-2009.

June 2009 Update : there is now a promotion running on the site, and it is temporarily available for $47 instead of $297 - as such, we recommend ordering sooner rather than later.

The Verdict: Fast and easy setup; works for complete novices; proven power savings of up to 90% - our top pick

Risk free: HME offers a 56 day money back guarantee

2. Earth For Energy



Our second pick uses a similar technology as our top pick - and again, we were impressed by the fast support, money-back guarantee and low setup costs.

This package includes comprehensive information on how to set up home solar panels with cheap materials, explained in a simplistic easy to understand manner.

All in all, it's a fairly decent package which means you can be enjoying solid energy savings for very little, very quickly. So why only four stars?

Well, perhaps we were spoiled by our top pick, but we found the directions a little harder to follow - and since ease of use is so important, we decided to knock off a star. But this product contains a good  information about wind power generators, as well as solar panels.

3. DIY Home Solar Power

DIY Home Solar Power is our third and final pick, and it actually includes 2 separate courses to help you create your own Home Solar System.

They report up to 50% reduction in the power bill - however the guide wasn't so easy to follow, because it required some technical knowledge

When a support ticket was submitted in order to inquire about some technical difficulties with the installation process, our support ticket was not responded to. A full, hands-on support system is vital if a relative "novice" is to install the technology, and here unfortunately it just wasn't there.

Overall this is a decent product, but unlike our top pick, it includes only information about Home Solar Panels, without including sufficient information on Wind Power Generation.

These days everyone needs solar energy. Why?
Electricity is so expensive..
 Save your Money - Just think about it:
Don't pay for your electricity any longer...
Instead, the power company will pay YOU
