When it comes to energy conservation there are many avenues you can take to cut back on energy consumption and also save you some extra money. We have only one planet so we better take care of it by being more conservative with our energy resources.
It is not difficult to construct your own solar panels and the bits and pieces are easily obtainable in even small towns. The same holds true for systems that will produce electricity from wind or water. The trick is to get a detailed plan from which to build your solar panels or other devices.
Look at the labels on your appliances. This will help you understand where your usage is going and why? It will also identify areas or appliances where you can make savings by better use of the appliances.
One of the reasons solar energy was not used in the past was it could not be stored and used later. Modern technology has made many strides in storing and using renewable energy. In today’s world, batteries to store solar or wind generated energy are much more efficient.
It’s green yet reliable-You can’t run from it. Everyone’s pushing to find more power resources. And biomass is sitting there right under your nose. Take advantage of a green fuel source that has been time tested.
China appears to realize it has a problem on the energy front. It has aggressively been looking into renewable energy. From hydropower projects like the Three Gorges Dam to solar and wind power, the country has taken an aggressive planning stance. Now comes news China will invest 5.8 BILLION dollars in alternative energy platforms. China is primarily focusing on wind and hydropower projects.
Switch to water heating systems that use solar power to heat hot tubs, pools and indoor water. Using electricity or gas to heat water is not terribly efficient, but water heaters that use solar power maintain water temperatures using only the sun’s rays by way of solar panels. Many of these improvements will cost you a bit up front, but the cost savings and tax deductions will usually more than offset that cost.
What we must trust in the future is renewable resources. These resources are all resources that provide us with plenty to offer, and never ends. They recharge and allow us to enjoy them again and again. Renewable resources include solar, wind, biomass, hydrogen, geothermal, ocean, and hydropower. We need all this, and we now have access to each of them.
