For decades, fossil fuels have powered this country, and today, we now know that when it comes to the environment, they aren’t the best way to be powered. So, we are seeking better ways to power this universe without relying on fossil fuel, hoping to reverse the damage we’ve already caused and not cause any more damage.
Solar power, wind power are things you’ve heard about. Have you heard about carbon capture or piezoelectricity or carbon capture? These are other forms of clean green energy solutions that researchers are hoping will make it as mainstream as those you have heard about.Continue reading »
When talking Solar Power, “Interconnection” is the rules about how a solar panel system is connected to the grid and it is an important part of going solar.
As with anything, the rules can make it difficult to go solar and of course, that makes it expensive. So the whole financial picture is changed a bit.Continue reading »
Green energy solutions describe any type of technology or industry, capable of producing energy, such as electricity or heat, at greatly reduced or no pollution levels. Whatever the technology is, it needs to be able to accomplish the task with a much smaller carbon footprint. Green energy solutions will typically be carbon neutral. Carbon-neutral means the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is the same as the amount that is drawn from it. In other words, you are not adding more than what was already there before. Examples of carbon-neutral energy sources are solar, wind, hydro, geothermal and biomass power. Examples of non-green energy solutions would be fossil fuel and nuclear power.Continue reading »
