Video: Off Grid Solar And Wind Installation. Photo – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ajp0VkWZ9Jk
This video tutorial is part one of a fantastic introduction to installing a complete off grid electrical power system. The presenter, LaMar Alexander, describes each component part of the system in detail, how it works, how to choose good quality products and to install them safely.
It’s refreshing to see someone who has the willingness to share such useful information freely, from someone who relies on what he has created to supply all of his electricity needs – we know that his information is trustworthy, thanks to recommendations by others in this field. LaMar has built his own cabin (at a cost of around $2000!) and with his own off grid installation, not only is the cost of living in this cabin really small but so is the impact on the environment!
With the high demand for utilities, growing world population and shrinking resources, the incentive to switch to an off grid power supply has never been better. Power companies are slow to respond to the environmental crisis that we all face so converting to home power generation is one of the best ways to reclaim some responsibility for saving the planet.
There are economical advantages to creating an off grid system too. Once the initial cost is covered you will be saving money every day; your household is likely to be more efficient because you will be on a limited supply and thinking much more about the power your home uses.
If you’re looking to purchase a property, the chances are that a place with no connection to the electricity grid will mean a cheaper price and an off grid system could be far cheaper than paying for a new electric line to a remote property. Off grid is very versatile too and a system can be grown easily by adding more modules.
Maintaining and living with home-generated power is not for everyone and it pays to be realistic about the tasks involved as well as the adjustments you would need to make in your lifestyle.

Solar cell technology is undergoing a lot of development as it is a rapidly growing market across the globe. The biggest breakthroughs are likely to be in the efficiency of cells to convert solar energy – a German company holds the record for the most efficient solar cell to date, rated at 44.7%!
LaMar talks about tax rebates and grants for renewable energy installations – if you’re keen to find out more about these financial incentives, please have a look at the following pages for some up-to-date guidance:

If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
