With more and more people becoming aware of the environment and accepting climate change as a major problem to consider for the coming generations, cleaner sources of energy have become more in demand than ever before. That is because not only is it a very efficient way to alleviate the amount of carbon footprint that our home leave behind, it is also quite practical and cost-effective.
If you are planning on starting a home with clean energy, or are a current homeowner and planning to make the switch from conventional power sources to cleaner alternatives, below are some ideas for …Read More
Wind energy is increasingly becoming popular, thanks to advocates of cleaner energy. It has many benefits that homes, industries, and individuals like to take advantage of. However, wind energy is not exactly that easy to harness, store, convert, and transport. Below are a few obstacles that commonly challenge wind energy:
There are not too many firms that venture into wind energy sources for now. Most times, this is because of a very large upfront cost. Wind turbines do not exactly come cheap. This may pose as a challenge to establishing a wind power plant…Read More
Low cost. In fact, it is one of the cheapest energy sources available today at 2-6 cents per kilowatt-hour. That is about half of the average electricity cost in the US at the most. If you are planning on making the switch but cannot seem to afford the large upfront cost that purchasing and installing a whole solar powered system into your home, this may be a great alternative to enjoy outright savings when it comes to energy cost. Just imagine cutting your electricity bill by at least half –you can now allocate your financial resources to other things …Read More
More and more homeowners these days are looking into solar energy to power their homes. You might be wondering why. Below are some of the best reasons why you should go for solar:
If there is one major takeaway that everyone gets to enjoy with solar energy is that it is clean renewable energy. Since energy is directly sourced from the sun, you couldn’t possibly expect by-product, emissions, or waste. Many energy platforms are actually leaning into solar technology in order to produce power that has close to zero carbon footprint and with almost nothing but positive …Read More
Biting into the trend of going for solar energy? To save you from any hiccups, here is a list of what challenges you may encounter when going solar:
Those solar panels definitely do not come cheap. To top it off, there are still installation fees to consider. The overall costing may depend on how much solar energy you need, judging by the size of your property, how many electrical appliances and devices you have, and just about how much energy you are expecting to use throughout your daily operations …Read More
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
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
Wind power in the United States is rapidly becoming a popular mode of producing energy thanks to its renewable nature and economic incentive. Though 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 must be performed in order to obtain electricity. Wind power is essentially a …Read More
