DIY Green Energy For Homes

How You Can Extract Energy from Your Phone Line

As energy costs rise, many homeowners are constantly on the lookout for ways to cut usage or costs in order to save money.

Families look to make sacrifices on devices and appliances and make schedules for usage of the things that they do have. Renewable energy sources are being sought by homes and businesses as a way to escape rising monthly costs.

While this is a great option, there is still one alternate free energy source that many homes and businesses may have overlooked—the phone line. For energy savings, you can learn how to extract energy from your phone line.

Unlike other energy source alternatives, the phone usage requires no set-up or installation costs. While solar and wind are excellent energy sources that rely on natural power, there are some costs associated with buying parts, tools, kits, and in some cases, professional installation costs. When you extract energy from your phone line, you are extracting energy from a power source that is already established.

Existing phone lines in homes and business can supply a lesser amount of energy. This energy can be used to power smaller electronic devices and can reduce reliability on power companies for 100% of electricity usage. Often times, some, if not all, of a home’s phone lines may go unused because of the usage of cell phones.

Each unused phone line can offer as much as 70 volts of free energy that can be used to power devices within the home. This is a free energy source that is available 24 hours a day and does not vary with natural source supplies such as sun for diy solar panels or wind for wind turbines.

Energy can be extracted from phone lines to power small appliances such as table lamps, hand-held kitchen appliances, or even to charge cell phones. And this energy is free. Energy used from phone lines will mean less energy used from power companies and that results in added cost savings at the end of the year.

A home’s phone line can be tested with a multi-meter to determine the amount of available free energy for usage. The amount available may differ from phone provider to phone provider, as providers across the globe tend to have different specifications. But the typical phone line will provide roughly 48 volts and 20mA of current.

The energy in phone lines comes from the two power lines that are available. One line has a higher resistance than the other. The greater the energy difference between these two lines, the greater the amount of energy produced phone the phone line. Using the maximum can cause the phone to receive a busy signal, so you will have to find the right resistance values the get a supply of energy and keep the landline available for phone usage.

With parts for this energy conversion totaling to $10 or less, this can be a worthwhile investment to power small devices or use as a backup source of energy in a power outage. DIY products are also available to convert the DC energy from your phone jacks to a usable voltage to source personal items.
