Solar Energy – The Energy Saver
Fossil fuels and sunlight are natural resources. Which is better for electricity?, you may wonder. The main differences here are sunlight is a renewable energy and has no carbon emission to the atmosphere compared to fossil which is non-renewable and creates greenhouse effect.
Solar energy is essentially converting direct sunlight into electricity by installing solar panels using photovoltaic cells. Countries in the equator, tropical and Mediterranean will benefit the most in receiving sunlight.
Here are three reasons for you to consider in changing to solar energy:
- Environmental impact
Solar energy does not emit carbon dioxide or monoxide like fossil does which increases global temperature. In fact, it is clean and the energy sourced from it is just as effective in generating electricity for your electrical tools at home.
- Financial benefits
Although, most of you may think that the initial installation is expensive, try looking it at a macro scale where you can reduce your utility bills on the long run. This also indirectly increases the value of your home because the cost of living is kept low.
- Energy independence
This phrase means that you will reduce the reliance on your local utility company to provide electricity. In case of electricity disruption, you can still continue with your work at home through your own solar power that your have conserved. Besides that, you are protecting yourself from rising utility tariffs if the utility company plans to do that in the future.
