Earth 4 Energy Review
The brainchild of Michael Harvey, Earth 4 Energy claims to help lower your energy bills by showing you how to produce your own power source at home. Available for a one-off fee with a 60 day money-back guarantee, the package includes a step-by-step DVD/video series, a booklet, and 1 year’s email coaching. At present, a CD, a solar-sizing calculator and the ‘Make A Windmill’ program is offered as a bonus.
What are people saying about it?
Reviews from buyers surveyed were mostly positive; almost all were able to assemble the panels and reported some reduction in energy bills (average was around 30% although the product claims it can cut bills by up to 75%).
There was some skepticism as to whether one could produce a power-generating source for such a small amount of money, yet producing a homemade turbine with this capacity for less than $200 is not unrealistic (assuming you put the time in!).
People found the instructions easy to follow; one reviewer compared the difficulty level to that of assembling IKEA furniture. We didn’t find any reviewers that had actually used the email support (a good sign perhaps), but it’s worth reiterating that this comes as standard with all purchases.
There was no obvious preference amongst the reviews with regard to the solar or wind methods although it’d be safe to assume that producing a functioning solar panel would take more time and know-how than a wind turbine.
BBB CHECK: At the time of this review, the company behind Earth 4 Energy had no outstanding complaints with the Better Business Bureau.
On the negative side:
- Reviewers did mention that you must setup your power source in an area that attracts plenty of sunlight or wind. An obvious point perhaps, but worth bearing in mind.
- Given the scale of the operation, don’t expect to be selling energy back to the power companies. This product is for people looking to reduce energy costs only.
- This product is aimed at small to average sized family homes. If you live in a mansion it’s unlikely you’ll see the same % reductions reported by others without significantly scaling up your operation.
- Getting the most out of this program will require some time and patience. If you’re not willing to devote a few weekends to getting your panels up and running then this probably isn’t the product for you.
Overall, buyers saw this is as a good value option vs. other products currently on the market. If you’re new to, or have limited experience with, renewable energy then this is not a bad investment to help get you started.
Given that the information is delivered in such a compact and easily digestible manner – one could comfortably read through it and try out all of the methods within 60 days and still claim the money-back guarantee. But you didn’t read that here!
