i always on a lookout for any technology that can help me save electricity I already bought a powersaver a device that promise 30% off my monthly electricity bill. unfortunately I don't see the difference since almost every month there's news of electricity rate going up in coming months. I am very interested with the idea of putting up a small windmill that can harness electricity the problem is I don't know where to buy the equipment and I am also in a tight budget plus I really don't know how it works and the maintenance necessary to have such device. any ideas???

Hi friend, sad to hear that you are disappointed with your new device. Your new idea is good, but i don't know about that device. One of my friend purchased a power saver ebook from an online site and followed the ways in that book, he told me that he reduced the EB bill for around 50% with the help of that ebook. May be it is true, you can try out it. http://www.apsense.com/article/generate-electricity.html

You don't have to leave the country to witness an application of renewable energy, ie your windmills technology. We have the windmills in Bangui, Ilocos Norte. At this point in time, we should be in the process of incorporating these new technologies into our energy generation systems, not only because oil and coal will get depleted but also because they leave a lot of carbon footprints. At this point, technology is still at its infancy and costly. Do research at this point in time. I do hope that we find an expert in this field who is willing to share his knowledge. How about some inexpensive china-made windmill?

Putting up a small windmill to save on your electric bill is such a great idea. If I have the means to put one, I will definitely do it. I always check my bills to see if my family have consumed a lot as compared to our previous bills. As of the last three months, we have consumed almost the same kilowatts per month but the cost is very much different. The culprit are the increase in consumption rate and all other reasons that Meralco implements just to raise the price. SIGH!!!!:(

electricity is taken as a necessity we can not live without. your idea of looking for ways to save up and having your own equipment is a good move. you may look up in the internet for a guide in putting up your own. Good luck!

We were planning to buy that powersaver thing that can let us save up to 30% of our electricity bill. Good that I have learned from you that it didn't make that much difference at all using it. We would probably not pursue with our plan for it, anyway. Haven't heard of windmill yet for residential use here in the Philippines or maybe I am just behind of the news. I have known only some for commercial uses. Isn't it pricey to have one at home?:)
