Nashville,Tenn. (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
In only its first full year of operation, Power4Patriots of Nashville, Tenn., sold more than 150,000 units of its Power4Patriots product in 2012, the company announced today.
The 2012 annual results culminate a trend of increasing sales milestones reported in December 2012 in the San Francisco Chronicle.
Power4Patriots was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages. Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own environmentally friendly sources of energy.
Power4Patriots is a collection of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. The system includes six videos demonstrating how to build a solar panel, including choosing the right materials, finding the right site for the system and avoiding costly mistakes, as well as two instruction manuals with step-by-step, illustrated directions. It also includes four videos and two instruction manuals detailing how to build a wind turbine.
While experience in working with wood and other materials is helpful, users don’t need to be professional handymen to build these systems, and skills such as welding are not necessary. The company says that installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one’s home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent.
On average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine. Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines spend three to four times that amount. The time commitment to build a solar panel ranges from two to four hours, with the first one requiring more time than subsequent panels. A wind turbine requires a handful of hours to build.
Importantly, the outside temperature doesn’t matter when it comes to benefitting from solar panels, which are energized by sunlight. Urban conditions work too because roofs, poles, fences and windowsills can be utilized.
