I wonder if anyone can help me with this. I am going to start creating
my own power, partly because of the financial cost and partly because
of the environment issues. I have come across this site
I think this is perfect for what I am looking for.
Anyone know if this can do the job for a three bedroom property?
Please let me know

Do you really believe that you can build a power system that will power your
home for $00.00?
Do you think it is ever a good idea to send money to a spammer?
If so, go right ahead!

First check your local library for books on solar power. That cost is
zero. There are also online sites that provide information on
insolation, which is how much sun your location gets - if the doesn't
shine, you don't have power. Some areas do not have enough snlight to
justify a solar installation.
Any site with that many "testimonials" and an auto-start video is
usually a "make money using the web" site, not a serious green power
A solar installation for your house would probably cost $0,000.
You would also need to convert to higher efficiency in both large (air
conditioning, refrigerator, etc) and small (CFL and LED for lighting)
You either havespace for a large battery bank to store power or go
back to utility-provided power at night and in cloudy weather.

It's almost certainly a waste of money. The same package is being sold
by spammers everywhere, including Ebay, where one seller claims to
have saved $40 in a single month by building a wind turbine from
hardware-store parts. That claim is so ludicrous that it could only
come from a blatant fraudster.

Not to be rude or sarcastic, but do your home work, which you haven't,
before spending money.
After your homework is finished, (well, semi-finished, cuz you will never
truly finish) you'll find the first step is to reduce power requirements.
Add insulation, better windows, close air gaps, more efficient appliances,
INFORMATION IS FREE, INFORMATION IS POWER
After you learn about energy and alterntivities, you'll be able to answer
most of your questions.
