Create your own electricity
Well simply, it is a fuel that can be made from any biomass such as plants, recently living organisms or from metabolic byproducts, e.g, cow manure.
The types of fuel extracted from biomass include ethanol, methanol and biodiesel.
An electric generator fueled by biodiesel can be used as supplementary or backup power for a home photovoltaic (PV) system, wind turbines, or a hybrid system that are stand alone (Off Grid). Any excess power can be stored in batteries. Biofuel can be used in home furnaces and boilers that run on No 2 oil or diesel providing home heating.
Make your own
Bio-fuel is an alternative renewable energy resource that with the proper management can be less harmful to our environment than fossil fuels such as gas, oil and coal.

Hi, My name is Shannon and I'm one of home-heating-systems-and-solutions.com readers. I'd like to thank you for the excellent information I've found on home-heating-systems-and-solutions.com, it's one of my favorite readings on the net. Warmest Regards Shannon United States
Thanks for the advice for removing an air lock from an indirect system. Had to change an inlet on my cistern. First time I have tried any home plumbing. After draining the cold tank system air locked when I refilled the tank. Garden hose and mains pressure up the tap sorted my problems. Would not have known what to do without the advice on the site. Many thanks Sean United Kingdom.
