Solar Energy is energy obtained by the sun. Solar Energy could be obtained by Solar Panels. Solar Energy would be most efficient here in El Paso because a lot of Solar Energy could be stored here since most of the time the sun is always here. Some of the most modern things in the market today are powered by Solar Energy. In El Paso Solar Energy would be best suited for the city.
Fossil fuels are non-renewable resources, which means they are impossible to gain back once used up. Although these fossil fuels have supplied energy to the majority of the United States for many years, the supply of them is diminishing and a new solution needs to come about. Sustainable energy is the energy of the future. These types of energy can be reused over and over again due to the form in which they come in. Many forms of sustainable energy are effective; however, solar energy provides the most beneficial aspects through financial and environmental methods for the United States.
Unfortunately, many companies are not rushing to install solar products as it can be quite costly to get started. Fossil fuels like oil, natural gas, diesel, nuclear and coal are all competitive on the global markets due to their high demand. These fuels release emissions into the atmosphere that damage the health of the planet. Solar energy, though not new, is not getting adequate momentum to be competitive on the global markets. Michael W. Parker and Purdy Ho expresses how “solar is cost competitive ... ... middle of paper ... ...is slowly but sure becoming a reality.
The world is increasingly trying to find alternative options to the coal, which is a polluted source of power. I think that Solar Energy could be used here in the UAE to generate a clean source of energy which will decrease the amount of pollution that we have in the air. In the long term, it will also cause the heat to decrease a bit. We have sun the whole year in the UAE and this is why I was interested to write about this topic. Solar Energy is a natural source of energy that never runs out and one of the most effective ways to save our environment.
The electricity can be used to power lights in your home or business and power anything else that uses power inside a household or business. The heated water provided from these solar-powered photovoltaic panels can be used for heat inside a house or business, it can also be used for hot water for sinks and showers inside a consumers household. All that without the cost of gas or electricity to run a water heater and boiler all day long. Wind power is also another c... ... middle of paper ... ...a great way to save money on gas and electric bills because these energy star products help seal a house and does not let out the air conditioning or the heat. Green energy helps save the earth because it uses renewable energy and saves the earths atmosphere from the harsh fossil fuels or coal fumes.
“Photovoltaics—A Path to Sustainable Futures” states that new technology such as solar power has become a primary focus for researchers and they not only believe solar power to be environmentally safer but more cost effective as well. All of us are electricity consumers and therefore are familiar with this issue that directly affects us. When looking at alternate ways to produce electricity, one matter that particularly stands out is the consumer’s cost for the use of electricity compared to the use of solar power. According to www.solcomhouse.com, over 200,000 homes in the U.S. use some type of solar technology and more than 10,000 homes are entirely power by solar energy. The advantages of using solar power for homes, also known as Photovoltaic systems, are numerous.
For years coal has been used to generate electricity for America; however it has contaminated our country more than ever. Even though coal is a huge industry it is full of accidents and hazards; workers have died of suffocation, gas poisoning, and gas explosions. Strip mining destroys the beauty of nature while also displacing animals; not only does it destroy the habit of animals it ruins the soil preventing future wildlife to grow. A forest or mining site has to be completely destroyed in order to begin mining; less trees and unstable ground result in future mudslides in surrounding areas. Coal mining leads to dirty river water which cost people more money to clean and filter; if the area wasn't mined before it would be cleaner and free of harmful toxins.
Solar power is the energy that comes from the sun as light and heat energy, and then it is later converted into electrical energy through solar panels (Nelson, 2008). This kind of power is completely free, right? Why should we put a lot of expense on other sources of energy, when there is a complete free and healthy power? It is evident that solar energy is a healthy source of energy, which will help stop global warming all together, but it is economically efficient to switch everything to solar energy. Solar energy is capable of becoming the world's future power supply because, it is renewable, eco-friendly, and extremely efficient when strategically placed.
They can always keep collecting the power. No matter what people may argue about how much coal, natural gas and petroleum remains buried in the Earth, those fossil fuels will run out far earlier than the life of the sun ("Solar Power Vs. Fossil Fuels"). Home owners should invest in solar energy because solar systems have very dependable technology with little maintenance, they offer financial savings and they are better for the environment. Solar systems, also known as solar panels, are built to be very efficient and require very little maintenance. Technology has helped to improve the look and construction of the solar panels.
It is also a type of energy that humans have a lot of, the amount is almost endless. People who live far and isolated from electricity power plants can just use the solar panels that are installed on their roof for energy. Changing to solar energy will also help life on Earth greatly in the long run and will help slow disasters such as global warming. Solar energy is more significant than anyone could have imagined.
