    Descriptive info: Wind turbines.. Generate electricity at home with small-scale wind turbines.. Wind turbines harness the power of the wind and use it to generate electricity.. Small systems known as microwind or small-wind turbines can produce electricity to help power the lights and electrical appliances in a typical home.. 40% of all the wind energy in Europe blows over the UK, making it an ideal country for small domestic turbines.. more.. Solar electricity.. Solar electricity systems capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic (PV) cells.. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.. PV cells don't need direct sunlight to work - you can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day.. Hydroelectricity systems generate electricity from running water - usually a small stream.. Small or micro hydroelectricity systems can produce enough electricity for lighting and electrical appliances in an average home.. Hydroelectricity systems are also called hydro power systems or just hydro systems.. Solar water heating.. Solar water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water.. A conventional boiler or immersion heater is then used to make the water hotter, or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable.. Ground  ...   with energy absorbed from the air around you.. Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air.. This heat can then be used to warm water for radiators, underfloor heating systems, warm air convectors or hot water in your home.. Wood fuelled heating.. Heat and hot water from wood fuelled stoves and boilers.. Wood fuelled heating systems generally burn wood pellets, chips or logs to power central heating and hot water boilers or to provide warmth in a single room.. Combined Heat and Power.. On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will.. __________________________________________________________________________________.. All information contained in these pages is based on average and conservative figures which may be subject to change..

    Descriptive info: Technologies - Wind Turbines.. How do small domestic wind turbines work?.. The benefits of wind electricity.. Is wind electricity suitable for my home?.. Making the most of wind electricity.. Costs and savings.. Find out more.. How do wind t.. urbines work?.. Wind turbines use large blades to catch the wind.. When the wind blows the blades are forced round, driving a turbine which generates electricity.. The stronger the wind, the more electricity produced.. There are two types of domestic-sized wind turbine:.. Mast mounted: these are free standing and are erected in a suitably exposed position, often around 2.. 5kW to 10kW.. Roof mounted: these are smaller than mast mounted systems and can be installed on the roof of a home where there is a suitable wind resource.. Often these are around 1kW to 2kW in size.. Households producing electricity from renewable technologies Solar PV, Wind turbines and Micro-hydro are now being rewarded through the new.. Feed in Tariff scheme.. If the turbine is not connected to the electricity grid then unused electricity can be stored in a battery for use when there is no wind.. In the UK we have 40% of Europe's total wind energy.. The benefits of wind electricity.. Harness a plentiful energy source: in the UK we have 40% of Europe's total wind energy.. Cut your carbon footprint: wind electricity is green, renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants.. Cut your electricity bills: wind is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation your electricity costs will be reduced.. Store electricity for a calm day: if your home isn't connected to the National Grid you can store excess electricity in batteries and  ...   appliances.. use energy when the wind is blowing - do your laundry on a windy day to take advantage of the free electricity.. charge up your batteries whenever you have excess electricity.. The cost of a system will depend on the size and the mounting method: building-mounted turbines cost less to install than pole-mounted ones.. For equipment and installation, with VAT at 5%:.. a roof-mounted 1kW microwind system costs around 2,000.. a 2.. 5kW pole-mounted system costs around 15,000.. a 6kW pole-mounted system costs around 22,500.. With the Feed in Tariff your wind turbine can generate income as well as electricity,.. click here.. to find out more.. Maintenance checks are necessary every few years, and a well-maintained turbine should last over 20 years.. Battery storage life is typically between 6 and 10 years.. What is suitable for your home?.. To find renewable technologies to suit your home, try the Energy Saving Trust.. home energy generation selector.. Use the Energy Saving Trust s.. wind speed prediction tool.. to help determine if your site has a good enough wind speed for a domestic scale wind turbine..
