But having said that, we should also learn how to conserve our energy and do small things such as turning off your light when you walk out of your room. Even if the government doesn’t start considering renewable energy soon, nothing’s stopping you from investing in your own solar geyser or trying to get involved by promoting this recent form of energy. It is good for you as you save money and good for the Earth’s future as it reduces the emissions in the Earth’s atmosphere.
The “engine generator powered by conventional fuels such as diesel” mentioned earlier is to fill any gaps of power when the two systems are at a low (Salkalachen 1250). The diesel power is not reliant on anything that is unreliant and will provide energy for one’s home whether the sun shines or the wind
Green Energy is a great way to save money and help save raw materials such as gas and electricity. Companies and engineers argue if Green Energy or Energy Star products are worth using and if the products will save money. Green Energy is used to save energy, such as electricity or gas. Energy star is used to help seal a house to save heat and air conditioning from escaping a house. Energy star is a rating that companies give products that tell the customers that they are energy saving.
Organizations can benefit from going green by reducing their energy bills as well. Energy bill reduction can come from utilizing high-efficiency bulbs in lighting. By installing lighting sensors, dimmers and a reflective roof, semiconductor maker Texas Instruments Inc. cut lighting energy at its office building in Richardson, Texas, by 80% (Roff, 2007). On the other hand, there are other disadvantages related to costs when a business decides to go green. For example, sometimes the costs to install and maintain “green” materials may not offset the savings in the long or short run.
Efficient energy consumption is also extremely important when using a solar home system. Energy consumption can be greatly reduced by such acts as buying efficient appliances, keeping doors and windows closed to reduce heat loss, turning off lights and appliances when they are not needed, and turning down A/C levels. These acts also contribute greatly to a reduction in the size and cost of your solar home system. The basic idea behind solar home systems is th... ... middle of paper ... ...reducing the use of fossil fuels while still meeting their energy needs, should definitely consider the use of an SHS in their home.

The fact that ethanol does not contribute to greenhouse gases makes it a popular alternative to gasoline. On a side note people who own vehicles that run on flex fuel get a tax credit similar to the one someone with solar panels on their house gets. In conclusion we still have plenty of fossil fuels to last us for a while, but are the costs of them worth their continuous use? Simply, no they are not, we have to make a change to ensure that this planet is safe and clean for future generations to come. As Arnold Schwarzenegger said “The future is green energy, sustainability, renewable energy.”

Old homes can be upgraded as well but it is not always necessary to receive an energy star label. Energy efficiency in homes can be increased even without meeting the requirements for an energy star home. The energy star label can be important for resale value but the true test of a home¡¦s efficiency can be measured by the utility bills.

This means using energy at times hot water is not necessary. A unit that does not use a storage tank will heat water whenever it is needed. This will lead to costs that are reduced and means that a monthly utility bill will be lower. This option is actually an endless source of liquid that can be used for showering, washing clothes, and watering the lawn. Review the variety of ways that a residential home will benefit from having a unit for heating H20 that does not use a tank.
Everyone is looking for a better way to have power. Solar power has very dependable technology, with little to no maintenance. It can bring finical savings by making more power a home owner may need and you can resell back the power company. Lastly help the environment by having no waste so less pollution and takes up unused space by putting them on to the roofs of the houses. In the end Home owners should try looking pass the initial price of Solar panels and see that this is a great way to produce energy that does not produce any carbon foot print.
The efficiency of a solar powered station varies between 40% and 80% but for an oil powered station it may range 30% to 40%. A solar powered station is therefore more ideal than a coal powered station since much of the energy is lost. However users currently pay 6 to 7 cents per kilowatt-hour for conventionally generated electricity. Eventually as renewable sources of energy becomes more popular the price will drop as no fuel cost is needed. Using oil, coal and gas means that explorers and miners are in more
