Renewable Power in Remote Locations
Relying on the electrical grid or generators for power when you live in a remote
location can be seen as the only options available to ensure constant power for your home, cabin or
But we all know how remote areas are often susceptible to power cuts and lack of fuel, and the
location means when there is a blackout it can sometimes be a while before you are back up and
These days people are increasingly looking towards renewable energy sources to provide them with
the power they need to function on a day-to-day basis. Things like wind power, hydro power and solar power
can all be sufficient ways of harnessing the earth’s natural resources to provide for your power needs.
Using these natural sources as a means to produce energy is not only kinder to the environment,
it can also mean a huge reduction in your energy bills. And in the present economic climate, that has to be a

Living in remote locations often increases the cost of connecting to the grid, due to the
complexities involved. By switching to renewable energy you can instead enjoy quiet, clean power without the
Solar power is one way of doing this, and is of course perfect for areas that are lucky enough
to benefit from strong, regular sunshine. The panels take in the light from the sun and convert it into
energy to be used to give power to the home.
These panels can also store the energy from the sun, meaning that even on grey, cloudy days,
there will still be power to allow you to carry on as you would if you were connected to the
Wind power is also being used more widely these days, and many people have built mini wind
turbines on their land to generate power for their homes or offices.
Hydro power is another renewable energy resource, and is something that is achievable providing
you have access to flowing water and that there is a drop. In other words, providing the water flows from one
point to a lower point, you should be able to establish some access to hydro power.
The benefit of hydro power is that water is constantly flowing, so the power is always generated
no matter what.
Some people have managed to become completely self-sufficient regarding their energy needs by
using methods like these. This is a fantastic achievement and means they no longer pay for any of the power
they use as it is generated naturally.
This may not be feasible for some people. However, offsetting just a small percentage of your
power use by using a renewable energy resource can be of huge benefit to a household or business. Not only
does it mean you are doing your bit for the environment by using a form of clean, non-polluting power, but
you will find the cost savings can be quite dramatic.
Overall there can be no doubt that using renewable power sources is the way forward, and the
beauty is that anyone can do it.
