One of the scariest things in Florida is when a Hurricane comes to town.
We were recently affected by hurricane Irma, in September 2017 and it was supposed to make landfall as a category 5! (fort those of you NOT Floridians, that means REALLY powerful lol). One of the decisions FPL (Florida Power & Lights) had to make was to turn off the nuclear power plant that resides right by the Port Everglades. This was a wise decision because nuclear power is created by nuclear fusion, which is produced by using radioactive materials. If hurricane Irma had damaged thje structure …
The energy generated by the wind in a given area can greatly affect any structures created, including buildings, fences, street signs, and many other man made structures. Many buildings built on the coast of Florida have to been greatly reinforced with extra concrete and hurricane impact windows. Of course we do not get hurricanes all of the time, but when they come the energy generated by the wind, can definitely affect local structures.…Read More
It has been a battle ever since the beginning, bringing green friendly energy such as solar power mainstream. Big oil and gas companies do not want it to happen as they make a much larger profit of burning coal and continuing with their profit driven earth polluting ways. The green friendly people have protested and tried as hard as they can to get better laws passed as to the emissions allowed by companies and forcing them to move to green energies. One major advancement that has been able to continue to advances on converting green energy is making solar panels …Read More
Never underestimate your ability to change. Solar wind energy represents more than environmental sustainability. Soaring wind energy provides an answer to an everlasting question and doubt of the future. For years, scientists have predicted the end of the world as abrupt as the beginning. But we have evolved in our ways of thinking and action. Our methods of building and destroying our planet have disrupted our thought-process and have endowed us with a larger and much longer future.
We build to create. We accept so we can cherish. We grow so we can live. Solar wind energy has kept our …Read More
Green products and solar wind energy has a lot of criticism. Whether they’re called “of the future” or simply “tree-hugging machines”, alot can be said about this technology. Solar energy offers a new way to operate systems and ways of living. Instead of depending on pure electrical currents and have your monthly utility bill add up, solar energy is a solution to the downtrodden and overpriced.
This new technology pushes the status quo and operates at maximum efficiency. But how? Hybrid solar-wind downdraft tower technology combines dry air, heated by the solar rays of the sun, with …Read More
If you own property and incur property damage during a storm a visit to a property damage lawyer is essential to see how their insurance attorneys can assist you in correctly filing a claim.
The damage left behind after windstorm can devastate a city or county. In Florida, even a regular afternoon thunderstorm can be strong enough to cause damage. One beautiful part about the windstorms is they can produce quite a good deal of energy. If there are already ways of harnessing energy in place, the increased winds can power a lot more than …Read More
Solar power can often be a controversial subject. To some, it may seem like an easy cop-out in the face of an ever-looming oil shortage to simply suggest all areas utilize solar panels. Not every nation has enough land to construct wind farms, let alone swathes of solar panels hoping to catch enough sunlight to power the lights for a day. Often times they need to be guarded by a large fence to ensure nobody steals the expensive materials. But for others it can be frustratingly simple that a carefully considered and budgeted solar power strategy could potentially reap major …Read More
Wind power in the United States is rapidly becoming a popular mode of producing energy thanks to its renewable nature and economic incentive. Our cohort and environment enthusiast, Robert E Clark believes wind turbines commonly require a not-so-modest amount of real estate to implement on a meaningful level, once built they can provide numerous benefits.
Of course the most apparent benefit to wind energy is the fact that it requires no fuel (in the traditional sense that disqualifies wind as “fuel”) and produces no waste. This translates to an exceedingly low level of maintenance that …Read More
Another fascinating invention in the field of wind power is the WindTree. This is a turbine built for a far smaller endeavor than that of the previous design, but it addresses the persistent problem of aesthetic: many naysayers of wind energy cite turbines’ rather drab appearance for their resistance to the construction of more turbines, especially ones close to their home. This turbine, however, is closer in appearance to a tree, hence the name WindTree. With a white “trunk” for support and curved green “leaves” to catch the wind, it could also resemble a work of art. Its design is …Read More

Of course the most apparent benefit to wind energy is the fact that it requires no fuel (in the traditional sense that disqualifies wind as “fuel”) and produces no waste. This translates to an exceedingly low level of maintenance that must be performed in order to obtain electricity. Wind power is essentially a …Read More
