It Is Time To Utilize Renewable Solar Energy

Posted on Jan 14 2012 at 05:42:21 AM in Technology

The sun is the life giving force of our  existence.  Solar energy, the light and  heat radiated by the sun, is what feeds us, clothes us and provides means for our  shelter.  However, renewable solar energy  can provide us with much more.  Using  renewable solar energy can provide both economic and environmental benefits as  well.

Renewable solar energy is an excellent  source of electricity.  Rather than  dwindling more fossil fuels to feed power plants, we can take advantage of huge  savings and electricity by utilizing renewable solar energy.  Renewable solar energies come with very  little pollution when they convert electricity from solar panels or thermal  devices.  Renewable solar energies do not  contribute to the effects of global warming.

Solar energy is a renewable resource.  Yes, there are days when the sun doesn’t  shine enough to generate electricity, but there are far more days when the sun  is there and not being utilized to power our homes, businesses and  workshops.  Once you invest in renewable  solar energy, you can save greatly on maintenance costs as most systems have no  moving parts and require little upkeep. 

By utilizing passive renewable solar  energy, you can build a solar home that requires very low energy use.  To use passive renewable solar energy you  must include south facing windows in your home design, in combination with  products like brick and stone that provide heat radiating thermal mass.  In combination with a solar hot water system  and solar electric panels you can take full advantage of renewable solar energy  resources.

It is also possible to build your own solar  panel and solar hot water systems for your design.  By building your own components you can  greatly reduce the time needed to pay for your renewable solar energy  system.  Building your own solar energy  system also allows you to fully understand the mechanics and physics behind  harnessing solar energy.  This can be an  educational benefit for all members of the family and building your own systems  will lower the cost of your renewable solar energy household by at least half  when compared to purchasing the system and having it installed  professionally. 

Start utilizing the power of the sun and  design a plan for your renewable  solar energy system.  With research  and elbow grease you can be on your way to a lower monthly budget and a more  environmentally friendly home or business.  Renewable solar  energy is going to be the way of the future and the Earth will thank  you.
