With the current state of our economies and also global warming, we ALL need to do whatever we can to help conserve our resources. I am referring to finances, food and energy resources. I am writing about alternative energy sources we can use.
The alternative energy I am discussing today is Solar Energy. Solar Energy ( energy from the Sun) is one the most resourceful sources of energy for the future. One of the reasons for this is that the total energy we receive each year from the sun is around 35,000 times the total energy used by man. In these tough economic times, it is very important that we discover different ways to save money. Green power is energy that comes from renewable energy sources such as wind, water, or the sun. Green power can save us money. Solar energy is presently being used on a small scale in furnaces for homes and to heat up swimming pools. On a larger scale, solar energy could be used to run cars, power plants, and space ships. Home Solar Panels are increasingly being used as a source of backup power in case of a blackout or other emergency. You can substantially reduce your home energy costs and even put some money back into your pocket by supplementing your existing power sources with a home solar panel. Use of this alternative ( green energy) reduces the amount of natural gas used and thus emissions expelled. This in the long run will help us to be less dependent on oil sources from other countries. Sustainable energy , is the provision of energy such that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Unlike fossil fuels and energy produced with materials that have limited supply, green power is produced with resources that are not depleted by using them. Home Solar Panels are increasingly being used as a source of backup power in case of a blackout or other emergency. You can substantially reduce your home energy costs and even put some money back into your pocket by supplementing your existing power sources with a home solar panel. In addition to the cost benefits of solar usage, you also benefit from a cleaner environment. While everyone cries and whines about gas prices and high energy costs – you will have an unlimited supply of solar power.
The carbon footprint of the manufacturing process of solar panels is much less than using coal for energy! Also, the technology is getting better and the footprint of solar panels produced today is much smaller than it was in the early days.
The debate about solar energy is really ‘hotting up’ now (excuse the pun 🙂 ) …there are people who are naysaying solar on the grounds that the solar panels themselves have cost quite a bit in terms of carbon footprint in the manufacturing process. Personally I’m inclined to think that; yes there is a cost but it is only once… the panel itself will continue to producte ‘free’ electricity for many years into the future… I’m with solar energy.
Solar is definitely green energy. There is none of the carbon pollutants involved.
Recently, one of my friend find a job about the solor energy. He said , in the future, the green industry will grow fast. I agree with him and i do also want to find a green job. Solar power will be the leading green power in the future.By the way, thanks for your sharing.
