Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Oil prices are rising skywards these days and all businesses are suffering due to the additional cost of fuel. Besides, public has also started to search for the alternatives of fossil fuel powered electricity for residential purposes. Right now there are two solutions available in this regard, solar power and wind power. Projects of wind power take more money and are less reliable than solar power.

This is the reason due to which customers take more interest in solar powered electricity. If you are one of these people then here are some suggestions to follow while selecting the proper system of solar electricity.

Estimate your energy needs

First of all, you should run a survey in order to understand your exact energy needs. In this regard, you will go in loss if arranged for more or less power than your needs. After this, estimate your future energy needs.

Questionnaire

Texas

Make a choice of the solar energy Solution(s) for your house. Check on all those choices that are relevant to you:

  • Solar Electricity
  • Solar Water Heater
  • Solar Pool Heater

Give More Exact Information

If you provide the more correct details, you will have the more precise assessment. This is particularly correct for the amount of your power bill every month. If the information is joined with your energy provider by checking it rates through some other source, you will have a more exact idea about the usage of your current requirement of power every month.

These details will help you to decide about the number of solar panels required to supply you the percentage of solar energy to fulfill your needs.

Free of Cost Solar Assessment for Texas

No doubt about the fact that State of Texas is full of sunshine and has tropical weather. For that reason, it is the perfect choice for strapping up the solar energy. It is also one of the key centers for oil plants and other interconnected oil industries.

Which Direction Solar Water Heater Panels Should Face?

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Answer

This depends upon where you live

If you are living in Texas area, you may not necessarily have to point your solar heater panel towards south because in this area it is sunny and hot all the year around. So if you are using the solar power as a source of energy for electricity generation it will be no problem.

Find About The Sun

On the other hand if you are living in an area where sun is not there all the time but only at noon then it will be a different scenario. If you are living in northern hemisphere then the sun will be in a southerly direction at its peak. In that case to get the maximum benefit out of your solar water heater you need to face its panel in the direction of sun i.e. south. This will enable your solar panel to receive the maximum amount of sunlight possible. This will enable you to not only run your machinery, but also will save power and money.

We live in a fast moving world and to keep it running lots and lots of energy is consumed every day. Conserving energy is not only friendly for the environment but also a necessity of the time. Many people after realizing the need to conserve energy have started utilizing alternative means of energy. Solar energy is an alternative means of energy which is obtained from the sun. The solar panels convert the incoming solar light energy into electric energy. Many people are using this method to save energy, because the method use to generate electricity is natural it is beneficial for the environment as well as cheaper then regular electric power and most of all, it saves energy.

Solar penel

To conserve energy and make the environment safe for living you need is to make your won solar panel. One can purchase solar panels from the market as well as there are plenty of them available online. The main component of a solar panel is the solar cell which converts the solar energy into electricity. The interesting thing is that solar cells can be made from daily household items.

How To Make A Solar Panel

Making a solar cell is not so difficult after all and it costs only a hundred dollar. All you need is a two liter empty bottle, some salt, sand paper, copper fleshing, an electric drill, one electric hotplate, and copper sheets.

Use of solar panel is becoming popular nowadays. Solar panels use energy from the sun, and are clean and environment friendly means of harvesting solar energy. However, the price makes people reluctant from buying it. Now it is easy to make solar panels cheaply, by using simple tools. Before installation that “how to set them up” few things will be needed.

Things needed to build solar panels:

Solar Cells (also called PV cells)

These are arrays of photovoltaic cells which are in shape of thin silicon disks. They convert sunlight into electricity. They are assembled to make solar panel. They are usually connected in series. Mostly the life of solar cell is about thirty years.

solarcell

The easiest place to buy solar cells is eBay. Search for good quality cells and enough cells for the number of panels to build. While buying solar cells make sure that the size and the energy output stay consistent, to run equal power through solar panels.

Plywood and UV Protector Varnish

Plywood is used to hold the solar cells. To protect plywood from moisture and weather it must be given coating of UV. This is important for a long life of solar panel.

Plexiglas glass

As solar cells are fragile they needed to be handled carefully. To protect the solar cells from the weather it is needed to a have Plexiglas front.

What is Free Energy?

Typically, one sort of energy, known as “free of cost energy” is a widely discussed issue now a days. With the advent of appropriate scientific developments we can extract the energy directly from the atmosphere, and which is unlimited in supply. The discussions are mainly about its availability or non-availability, and if available the supply is unlimited or not, and if it is available the costs involved in making it available.

What it Free Energy

The discussions also involve the verification of the claims of its supporters that it would be efficient to consume resources to investigate and cultivate it, as a probable alternative energy source.

The Basic Concept

The term “free energy gadget” has multiple notations when we talk about it. One of the possible outcomes of such a gadget is that it accumulates energy from a source which is not scientifically proven, and transfers it to the other source. And off course, it is free of cost too. It may also be some sort of a machine which accumulates cost free energy or a famous uninterrupted motion vehicle. Such an uninterrupted motion vehicle as its name suggests, it will move everlastingly and will never need to be refueled. It looks beyond the reality now. But it is not beyond the reality to develop such scientific techniques which may convert energy hovering in the environment.

Nuclear Power – Alternate Energy Source

Scientists agree that power generation through fission reactions of atom commonly known as nuclear energy is an important alternate energy solution. This is because of its vast potential to generate power.

Efficiency of Nuclear Power Plants

Nuclear power plants consume most of their input and their performance is pretty amazing. Most preservationists show their reservations on the use of nuclear energy as a source of alternate energy source. They claim the residue material, which is in the form of radioactive gases is dangerous to environment. To address their point of concern, the efficiency of the nuclear power reactor is used as a yardstick. Nuclear power is produced at 80% efficiency, which means that output of the fission reactions is more or less equivalent to the input. This results minimal residue substances. In production of power through other sources also creates residue material. There could be no mean of power generation without leaving the residue material. Off course, there is residue material in this technology too.

Ten Years to Reduce Global Carbon Emissions, Says Met Office

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


According to a new study conducted by the UK Met Office, the world leaders have just ten years to reduce global carbon emissions, if they want to protect the planet against climate change.

The Met office warned that if prompt action was not taken soon enough, then global temperatures could rise by more than two degrees Celsius.

Vicky Pope, head of climate science at the Met Office, said that If you go to 2025 before peaking, it’s virtually impossible to stay under two degrees Celsius.
