We have a real and growing problem. Our natural resource dependency for energy and its limited capacity and effect on the environment. Fortunately, we do have options. Some may argue that they are too expensive, that they are too inefficient, or that they are too complex, and they may be right to some extent, so I decided to find out for myself by building an alternative energy device of my own as a learning experiment. I started by doing some research on alternate energy, also knows as Green Energy. There are a number of solutions out there, but the two solutions that I found the most information on covered wind and solar power.
