When it comes to energy conservation there are many avenues you can take to cut back on energy consumption and also save you some extra money. We have only one planet so we better take care of it by being more conservative with our energy resources.

Like wind power, hydropower use the same theory as wind power but hydropower convert the energy of moving water into electricity. But tidal power is a bit complicated compare to hydopower although both of them convert energy of moving water to electrical energy. A reservoir is built at the seaside that have very high tide height ( >5m ), a valve is used to control the water flowing in or out of the reservoir hence is used to generate electricity.

The good news for all of us is that materials (in the form of instructional blueprints) are available in bookstores and on the Internet. They can help us build our own solar panels in our backyard. The only investment to build each PV panel is less than two hundred dollars and a weekend. If you already have experience, you will get them completed within a shorter time.

To some degree, those of us toiling away to make clean energy a viable and stable industry share a lot of similarities with Fred Dobbs, Bogart’s character in the 1948 film. Dobbs meets up with the grizzled prospector Howard, played by Huston, down in Tampico, Mexico about 1925.

If we are to look at the world’s consumption on oil based products you can clearly see that it rises each day. One clear example for this is the traffic we see on our roads. And the production and reserves for this does not really grow in an instant. If we really have to seek a sustainable energy source it should be the one that comes from a natural flowing stream of energy. And there’s nothing more available energy in the world than green energy.

Buy pre-owned fashion. If you do want to buy something, shop vintage. When you buy used clothing, you’re recycling it, saving it from the landfill. And it required no additional resources to produce it.

If you have some assets, consider converting them into cash, land or precious metal like gold or silver. You will need assets that are less effected by the crash of the currency and hyper inflation.

If all you need to live off grid is success stories, then the Internet should provide you with plenty of them. You can find a huge number of resources there and plenty of people that have gone off grid and can give you tips about it.
