Micro Generation of Energy in the Home

  This home energy book details how locally generated electricity pays for itself within five years and immediately helps to avoid global warming. WinterGreen Research's online Return on Investment (ROI) analysis tool, included in the cost of the book, allows the personalization of energy inputs for every situation, enabling users to enter different electric bills, and different amounts of micro generator investment in different time frames to see how a particular situation will work out.  The thesis of the book is that ordinary people can work together achieve quality energy policy by utilizing a battery with DC current system within their homes.

  The aim of this book is to encourage people to reduce global warming as a means of saving both money and the environment.  As the energy from solar and wind micro generators is “green”, there are no emissions to deplete the ozone layer.  A prime example of the need to decrease emissions is the threat of flood as the polar ice caps melt.. As global warming increases, so too will sea levels. Imagine the impact on real estate values in Florida – underwater property would be inexpensive, but you can’t build a house there. “Go buy a micro generator windmill, go buy a solar panel, and go buy a thin film battery,” says Susan Eustis, President of WinterGreen Research and primary author.  “Get started now.  Wind and solar micro generators can be used now in combination with thin film solid state batteries to significantly supplement electricity provided on the regional grid.”

  The concept of generating on-site electricity for homes can be applied to gas/electric vehicles as well.  With gasoline prices inching ever closer to the $8.00 gallon mark, hybrid cars are destined to become more popular and drivers are sure to look for alternatives to plugging the car into the electricity grid. The ability to store wind and solar generated power in thin film batteries in residential homes creates the charge that is needed. Ordinary people can now take control of their own energy needs.  “Local DC energy initially can be used to power hybrid car batteries, small appliances, electronics, and LED lights,” according Dr. Susie Eustis, a nanotechnology specialist and co-author.  "Wind generators and solar panels have reached maturity.  The richest man in China sells solar panels.  Home energy infrastructure is used to extract power from renewable sources efficiently, creating the chance for making home energy more efficient."

   The book provides an example of a home system that has been running for eight years, paid for itself in five years, and provides DC current from a battery charged by a solar cell.  It describes the solar panels, micro wind generators, thin film batteries, LED lights, and hybrid vehicles that can be utilized in a home energy system that is efficient and affordable.

    The book is available in either print or pdf format.  The cost of the book is $48 for single copy print or pdf.   PDF format copies are $395 for a school web site or library posting.  Schools and libraries are permitted to print and distribute copies and charge for those copies to members of the school or library.  Thus, printed and electronic copies can be generated by the person that pays for a multiple copy license for the book and used by anyone connected with the school, organization, or library.  Once the license has been paid, no further money needs to be paid to the publisher even if the organization charges to distribute copies of the book. 

   Wintergreen Research is an independent research organization funded by the sale of market research studies all over the world and by the implementation of ROI models that are used to calculate the total cost of ownership of equipment, services, and software.
