Going Green by Harnessing the Power of Solar Energy.
The world faces tremendous pressure of rising energy demand as the developing countries continue to grow and the global economy moves even further up. All this is exerting significant pressure on the use of fossil fuel to meet its energy demands. Presently the world’s 80% energy demand is met through coal, oil and gas. This has exposed the world to extreme climatic changes and not only this, if the same trend follows, a day will come when the world will run out of all its energy resources. According to an estimate, the world’s energy demand is only expected to grow almost half over the next two decades while the world has got only enough to meets its energy demands for next thirty years. Over this time energy resource will grow even more expensive and much environmentally damaging to retrieve. The scientist communities world over have expressed their deep concern and have declared energy crisis as one the greatest threat to humanity of this century. Now it’s not an open option but a mandatory requirement for us to participate directly or indirectly to support energy saving and promote renewal energy in every aspects of your life. Harnessing sustainable energy practice as a way of life is important if we like to see our world pass on to the next generation in its present shape if not better.
We can’t imagine our world performing even for a second without electricity. As discussed above 80% of the energy demand is met through the use of coal, oil and gas. All of them unfortunately not only add up to green house buildup in the environment but are also getting exhausted pretty fast. Once it is all exhausted, can you imagine what a world will be without energy? While if we look around, we see nature has got enough potential to supply for all our energy needs through various means including solar energy which is not going to disappear anytime sooner.
Sun is a potential resource to produce clean and sustainable electricity without polluting the nature or leaving behind global warming emissions. In fact on the other hand it is considered as renewable energy since it is produced from the sun and does not deplete any natural resources. By installing solar panels at your home, you make your contribution towards combating green house gas emission and global warming. You also contribute towards reducing our collective dependencies on fossil fuel. Solar power system for a three bedroom house is good enough to offset 50 tons of carbon dioxide over 20 years. This is an equivalent to saving 12.1 tons of coal and 40,000 gallons of water used in producing electricity. However not only this, you also save substantially on your utility bills while reducing your carbon footprint in the process.
Solar panels will allow you to:
- Harness the power of sunlight to power your house
- Save substantially on your electricity bill
- Sell surplus electricity back to the grid
- Collectively reduce your family’s carbon footprint.
