Once the solar panels have been installed and they are brought up to maximum efficiency there is little else to do to ensure they are in working order. As governments are doing their part by encouraging citizens to recycle, they also realize the importance of creating renewable sources of electricity; worldwide and locally they offer rebates and monetary incentives to those who install solar panels and solar hot water systems. Solar energy facilities can generate electricity whether there is sun shining or not.

As more people learn about solar energy, the more eco-friendly the world will be.
Present and Future Benefits of Solar Powered Homes Introduction The following is a feasibility study on the need to apply solar power for homes and the benefits to be expected from it. This report contains information on the expected benefits of using solar power for homes in place of traditional methods of power such as electricity and gas. Solar power is beneficial to consumers because it saves them money compared to the increasingly high prices of conventional methods of generation. Solar power is also beneficial to society because it is much safer for our environment than the burning of fossil fuels or the use of nuclear power that is characteristic of gas and electricity power. This report explores solar power as an alternate and superior means of power generation for homes.
Secondly, the low efficiency may improve by the innovation of technology which are the technical and design improvement on photovoltaic systems, storage systems and concentrated solar power systems. The above findings demonstrate the need to mitigate problems with using solar power not only because it is an alternative energy but also because solar power has huge long-term benefits as an endless, sustainable and clean future energy. Therefore, this report recommends that government need more promotion in future to support and boost the research and development of solar energy system which also need the collaboration of the scientist on technical issues. A further recommendation is public encourage in order to widely utilize solar energy in the world.
government should use solar energy not only because it decreases using fossil fuels, but also because solar energy promotes a healthy economy. Solar power proves to be economically efficient through a process called net metering. Net metering allows non-utility solar energy customers to produce and sell extra energy to local energy facilitators. One researcher explains that when consumers need to pay their next energy bill, they only pay the difference of energy they produce from the energy they use; therefore, net metering lowers overall costs of energy bills (“Microgeneration”). Chemical engineer Goswami notes that “solar collectors have high concentrated storage” (11).
Energy star is a rating that companies give products that tell the customers that they are energy saving. Green energy is a renewable source of power because it helps save energy and uses the earth’s resources to create and save energy without wasting money (Bishop). Green Energy is energy that is produced with a far less negative impact on the earth. Green energy is great for saving the earth from any harmful fossil fuels that humans may burn . Homeowners and building owners think that these energy star products are bad because the initial cost of the products are much more than regular products.
Solar energy is capable of becoming the world's future power supply because, it is renewable, eco-friendly, and extremely efficient when strategically placed. Solar energy is clean energy that does not affect our environment. Solar power utilizes the sun’s energy to produce electricity, unlike other sources of energy, which rely on continual mining for raw materials. Consequently, producing solar energy from the heat from the sun does not result into the annihilation of the ecosystem, compared to the extraction of fossil fuels (Bode, 2005). Therefore, with the use of solar energy, it will help keep the environment clean, thus help to combat the issue of global warming, which is a threat to the world’s ecosystem worldwide.
With its inefficiency, scientists are trying to find alternative solution to store solar cells for as long as possible. The main process of capturing solar energy happens at the nanoscale. With solar cells, it gets more efficient the tinier it gets. The converting rate of solar energy is equally price competitive as fossil fuel, with a dollar per watt of solar energy. With the help of nanotechnology, it could help raise solar energy conversion efficiency and help lower costs making it the ultimate method of raw energy conversion.
It has been becoming cheaper in the more recent years. It has become a popular energy source among many people to help reduce the cost of their utilities. There has been some speculation about having cars powered by solar energy, but there would not be enough energy generation to make it be efficient for a car (Hudgins 394). Nuclear power has ... ... middle of paper ... ...e/2014/02/renewable-energy>. Hudgins, Jaron L. "Alternative Energy In The U.S. Energy Supply: Current Trends And Recommendations For The Future."
The problem is that Norway sells this energy to other countries and because renewable energy is expensive to buy, we buy fossil fuel energy to cover our needs. It is estimated that 52% of the energy that Norway use is made by fossil fuel plants. In this way Norway make money. They sell clean energy for a high price and buy “dirty” energy for a cheaper price and makes a profit. If more schools, buildings, houses etc started to use solar panels to create their energy there would be a smaller demand to get energy from the government.

As Otto suggested in his report, wte technologies is capable of encouraging people to recycle and segregate waste for proper disposal. It also benefits the environment by limiting the impacts of climate changes through the control of carbon emissions and other harmful components in the atmosphere. Wte technologies are also generally effective in supporting the economy as it helps address the need to meet increasing demands for electricity. This is especially evident with the growing number of wte plants built in several countries such as the U.S. as well as Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium and Sweden, five European nations with the highest wte usage and recycling rates (Otto, 2013).
