The price of electricity is going up. The price of everything in our capitalist society will go up. Inflation affects all nations and economies and as a nation the way we deal with it will determine our results on how we will grow and prosper. These unavoidable truths force us to consider alternative energy sources like solar panel technology and windmill generators as a way to both save money and be kind to the environment.
People today are much better informed and due to this awareness there is a movement that is growing towards getting rid of the old generating systems of the past and the adoption of new technologies for renewable energy is fast becoming the accepted practice. The unfortunate aspect of this environmental crisis that we are facing today is that we are the creators of this current situation that must be rectified without delay. The only way out of this situation, is for us, as individuals and as a nation, to spearhead the two pronged movement to reduce our energy consumption and develop alternative energy sources that are not damaging to our world.
As a nation, our leaders have taken the initiative and put significant financial resources into home solar panels technology, wind and nuclear energy. Wind and solar power harnesses existing natural resources to produce energy, with little adverse effect on the environment.
Due to government investment in these renewable technologies, it has allowed the research to move quicker, resulting in lower prices and smaller scale for the home user.
The concept of a small wind turbine and/or a solar array has come full circle, to be seen as a reasonable and rational concept for main stream society.
The technology of solar power – familiar to students of physics — works by exposing solar photons to thin sheets of different electric elements, producing an electric current. With a sufficient number of these panels, it is possible to power your home. It is vitally important that we as a nation must adopt a new way forward in our use of our resources such as our energy and power needs if we are to survive in the coming years.
It is vital to streamline appliances in order to maximize their efficiency. It is an achievable goal to expect self suffiency in the future if we keep our efforts to spread the awareness at all levels of society.
The addition of a small wind turbine would allow a little ‘breathing room’ for overcast days or in latitudes when the home solar panels don’t contain sufficient energy to make them efficient on these kinds of days.
While the generation of enough electricity to produce heat of sufficient quantity may be difficult in northern climes, the obvious and equally environmentally friendly alternative is the geothermal or aqua-thermal ‘heat pump’. The heat pump is an intricate process that transfers heat from the earth on an average of 65 degree constant temperature and is becoming very popular in cooler climates due to the need for people to adopt renewable systems that are good for our environment and will save us money. The ability to switch from a warm temperature to a cooler setting is provided.
If this heat pump is powered by your home solar panels, you have succeeded in making your solar panel installation part of the solution to our environmental problem.Tags: renewable energy, pure sine wave, renewable energy system
