Magnet Generators Vs Solar Power

Renewable energy offers very good prospects for replacing fossil sources and eliminating the undesired aftermath of those sources.

Renewable energy is obtained form natural sources - wind, sunlight, geothermal heat and tides - which sources are replenished naturally.

Renewable energy is especially appealing because it requires basic equipment to produce on a large scale, compared to the process through which oil, natural gas or coal are obtained.

In recent years, there’s been tremendous growth of alternative energy sources - in addition to renewable energy - to compete and scale down on the over reliance on fossil fuels. Many people opting for alternatives then get faced with different choices, and sometimes it is quite hard to make a selection.

While a lot of people are familiar with solar power, not many have heard, let alone know what magnetic generators are. It’s thus imperative that one gets acquainted with the nitty-gritty of both the magnet generator and solar system before making a choice.

Solar power is widely available and more people have adopted it. Setting up a solar electric system is pretty simple. Most states do not have regulations barring the installation of solar but you would still need some sort of clearance for most places. Installation involves mounting photovoltaic panels (solar panels) in a position where they would receive maximum sunlight.

The panels are connected to a wiring system that transfers energy to inverters and then to batteries. The appeal with solar is that it is relatively clean and cheap to maintain. It is easy to integrate into your existing power system. For some states, you can offset your utility bill with excess power generated, or sell it back to the utility.

The downside to solar is that it can cost a fortune to set up, if your power needs are huge, and it seems to be the alternative source of choice for those on the high-end of society. Solar is also largely dependant on weather patterns of an area; if you live in a place which rarely gets sunshine, then solar is definitely not for you.

On the  other hand, a magnetic generator seems like a breath of fresh air for those on the lower side of earning, but with a desire for alternative energy. Based on its design, a magnetic generator produces electricity from a magnetic field created by the un-like pole magnet wheels placed in proximity, which create a moving magnetic field. The magnetic field results in movement of electrons in the copper coils, which cause a current flow.

In theory, a magnetic generator can produce huge amounts of electricity and will run perpetually, with little or no maintenance, as long as the magnets retain their power. The other plus is that the parts for building a magnetic generator are pretty cheap and readily available from electrical and hardware stores.

However, for all its prospects, a magnetic generator remains largely impracticable. Reason is because it is not yet feasible to transfer the theoretical designs into a working machine. While in theory a magnetic generator can generate huge amounts of power, most of it dissipates during transmission.

This is the largest hindrance to its full practical use. Also, you will not get a fully assembled generator anywhere as it can only be assembled in a store or at home after buying individual parts. In short, a magnetic generator is still some years away from being practicable.

In all, although it can be costly to set up, solar power seems to make more practical sense as an alternative source, than a magnetic generator.
