According to Ben Ford, owner of the popular website Home Made Energy, the answer is yes!
Why most people struggle
According to Ben, there’s a reason why so many people struggle with electricity bills despite so much help being offered to them today…
“The fact is that most people don’t know about the benefits of generating renewable energy themselves,” Ben tells us. “They also don’t know how easy it is to do this.”
How Ben conquered home made energy with a unique approach
“I’ve made countless tests for the most effective methods for producing heaps of energy,” Ben tells us. “Choose between two types of electricity generators, solar-based or wind-based. And this doesn’t mean you need to build one or another. You can easily build both systems and generate even more energy.”
Ben focuses on the unique approach of unplugging your house from your electrical company, knowing that you are fully powered by renewable energy.
Was it worth it?
“I wiped out my electric bill in less than 30 days, broke free from the electric company’s slavery, and humiliated some Big Energy fat cats by getting them to actually pay me for electricity.”
And Ben is not alone. There are many success stories from using Home Made Energy that should, at the very least, inspire you to give it a try too.
What others are saying…
“I made my first solar panel this weekend and I wanted to let you know it’s awesome.” – Terry Rains
“ Using the HomeMadeEnergy guide me and my son have built our own wind mill.” – Jason Hutto
“After reading your book I’ve decided to go with the solar system.” – Gerald Robinson

With the rising energy costs and effects of global warming so prevalent today, many people are wondering if there is truth to the concept of renewable energy technology. There also appears to be confusion between alternative energy technology and renewable energy technology. Alternative energy encompasses all renewable energy sources, but includes things like nuclear power and energy from municipal waste. These are carbonaceous examples. Renewable energy technology focuses on energy that is replaced as it is being used, such as solar energy and wind energy.
With that clear, are there truly benefits on a home or small business level to renewable solar technology? Absolutely. Truthfully, by utilizing renewable energy technology on a home level you can save yourself thousands of dollars each year. Renewable energy technology has gained popularity in recent years and it has become increasingly easy to meet your home’s energy needs with just a little handyman work. With the information available about renewable energy technology, it is possible to build renewable energy products, such as a windmill or solar panel, on your own. Do-it-yourselfers are saving huge amounts of pocket change by building and installing these systems themselves. If you have the money to invest in a commercial professionally installed system, in general these are more efficient, however, savings can still be realized, and at a much faster rate, by researching and building your own renewable energy systems.
Renewable energy technology is advancing with each day. Solar electrical systems have advanced from giant roof panels to thin layers of film that are twice as conductive and work with less sunlight. There are now solar powered charges for cell phones, batteries and other small household items. Windmills have been made more aerodynamic for greater action and electricity generation. Renewable energy technology can even be seen along today’s highways as small solar/wind operation stations powering signs and lights.
The truth is renewable energy technology is working and you can put it to work for you in your home or business. With growing popularity and more consumer use, renewable energy technology could minimize our effects of global warming, help alleviate financial stress and create a world less depend on fossil fuels.

Renewable energy is increasing in demand. Living off the grid is no longer for the hippies and is being embraced by a larger audience. With more affordable options and easier to use components it’s no wonder renewable energy development is growing.
Even in the technological age we are living in today, off the grid living is possible without giving up on modern conveniences.
What is off the grid?
Off the grid living is when people are not dependent on traditional electrical supply lines. This would eliminate their need of being connected to power lines and conventional energy. However, when people begin to consider taking that step to go off the grid it’s best to remember that you’ll need to do some research. You’ll need to learn how much energy you use in order to build the proper system that will keep your house running efficiently. Take your time and educate yourself.
A great resource to learn how you can make your own energy, for less than $100, is Home Made Energy. It’s a step-by-step guide to show you how easy it is for your home to be off the grid.
Process Of Being Off The Grid
You might be wondering what is exactly involved with being off the grid. It’s a relatively simple three step process. First, you need a power source. This could be solar, wind or even water. Second, the energy will need to be harnessed. And lastly, the low voltage direct current you harnessed will need to be converted with an inverter. Once converted into a usable house current (AC) you will be off the grid and no longer need to stay attached to the conventional power lines.
To complete the process most homeowners choose to build their own electricity generators, solar being the most popular.
Any excess currents that are generated by your electricity generators are able to be stored and used at a later time. This is perfect to help with those high demand electricity use times and the direct energy source is unavailable. If you are converting solar energy, then the extra energy stored in your batter banks and will be used in the evenings.
In order to be successful in living off the grid it’s important to ensure that your system is the right size. You’ll want to make sure that it meets your energy needs.
After set up renewable power resources are automated and require little maintenance. Although there is no special attention necessary, you will need to properly maintain your batteries.
Living on the grid is more common today, but more people are choosing to live off the grid each day. This is especially true with the rising energy costs. It can be an exhilarating choice that will help you earn your independence from the utility grids.
