Our ancestors held the Sun in reverential awe, establishing entire cultures and religions around it. Solar worship can be found throughout recorded human history, ranging from ancient Egypt to Greece and to the Native American cultures. Dependence on the sun for life and sustenance made it natural for early, primarily agricultural societies to develop such deference towards it.Add a comment
Most energy forms that we have become dependent on are from non-renewable energy sources. These resources are harmful to the environment and cannot be replaced once depleted. Finding alternate sources of energy can decrease our dependency on non-renewable energy sources and fossil fuels, and help keep the environment clean at the same time.
There are a variety of sources that can be used to harness renewable energy, such as wind, ocean waves and biofuels. Solar power is one of the most popular forms of renewable energy because of its sustainability and eco-friendliness.
At one time the words sun and food used together brought back memories of potato salad gone rancid from sitting out on the table at the family picnic. In today's greener environment the heat of the sun is actually used to keep food cold. Solar powered refrigerators and freezers take energy efficient appliances to a new level and are used around the world.Add a comment
Solar power is a very staid source of energy, mainly because the sun will never run out of energy—at least, not for billions of years. You can be assured that the sun will rise on the east all the time. That said, you would want to make the most out of what solar energy can offer mankind. If you have mulled over the idea of incorporating solar panels at home, you will also want to give solar power battery use a "go."Add a comment
Solar power is a pretty useful energy source. This is a fact that had to be driven home to the public for a number of years before people finally got the picture and began investing in solar panels for their homes and business to cut down on expenses. Even if it did take a while before the solar panel bug kicked it, it did finally become a natural enough presence that manufacturers began catering to home based solar power. When solar power was first introduced, we became aware of some issues surrounding the commercial use of solar panels that couldn't be ignored. The first problem had to do with bulk and the second had to deal with expense.Add a comment
The United States Government has committed itself to ensuring that alternative fuel costs are inexpensive for consumers. It does so because of the rising cost of fossil fuel.
In 2007, the President signed, the Energy Independence and Security Act. (http://www.whitehouse.gov/infocus/energy/) It put money into biofuels, increased fuel standards on cars and sets up clean diesel regulations.
It also stated that Federal buildings must use Energy Star products. Nothing sets the standard greater than leadership.
In 2005 the Energy bill helped out solar energy production immensely. It committed to reduce the cost of solar photovoltaic technologies to become cost-effective by 2015.
Energy is a vital part of our existence. There are various types of energy known to science. Many of them play a large role to our systemic functions and to our daily life. Today, solar energy has become the focus of expert attention. With the advent of top-of-the-line technologies, solar systems have been incorporated in homes and commercial establishments.Add a comment
If you have been living under a rock, you probably have never heard of the benefits of solar energy. In the past few decades, ecological advocates emphasized the benefits of solar energy. You can say that the hoopla about solar energy is much deserved, considering how much clean energy it can supply every household and how much industrial and domestic infrastructure can benefit from them.Add a comment
With all of the promising choices for a clean, renewable energy source it appears that solar energy is, at least so far, the most viable for widespread use. The planet has an abundance of solar energy available and it is already being used in many areas as an efficient source of electricity. The technology is far from perfect, however. Solar power systems can be expensive and sometimes difficult to maintain. For this reason, there are researchers around the world ever searching for a better way to capture and utilize this precious commodity.Add a comment
Solar energy has long been the favorite among many scientists because it is one of the most abundant renewable energy sources and it has the potential to be the cheapest. Scientists all over the world are searching for ways to make truly efficient solar panels so that solar power can finally become a practical choice for everyone. But there may be an even better way to harness the power of the sun. Scientists now believe we may be able to collect energy a little closer to the source by harvesting solar wind.Add a comment
