The costs of energy these days are literally high. That’s why people today are anxious to find some ways where they can lessen their energy consumption and their cost. We have the common sources of energy today which are the hydropower and coal power. Because of water shortage that we experience lately, it results to insufficient supply of energy. This is why most home owners are having a hard time finding ways to save energy in their home. Being one of those home owners that suffers from this problem let me share to you some of the techniques that I’ve used which helped me save energy and money. Try to use these several tips that I have on how to save energy in my home.
In the true sense, solar power if developed well can supply the whole world. On the first place, sun is a free source of energy compared to hydropower plants owned by several companies wherein you need to pay monthly. Otherwise, they will cut the supply of your home’s power. But what’s great about solar power is that, it promotes green environment. There no need to burn fossil fuels just to produce electricity.
Collecting the wind is another source of power. You will need a wind turbine – something that looks like the propeller of an airplane that sits on top of a tall tower that’s anywhere from fifty to 100 feet tall. The wind blows, making the blades of the turbine move and spin a shaft that runs from the hub of the turbine to the rotor of a generator. The generator spins and creates electricity (again, a direct current). The inverter turns that current into alternating current.
If we are to look at the world’s consumption on oil based products you can clearly see that it rises each day. One clear example for this is the traffic we see on our roads. And the production and reserves for this does not really grow in an instant. If we really have to seek a power supplier source it should be the one that comes from a natural flowing stream of energy. And there’s nothing more available energy in the world than green energy.
To calculate the cost of electricity for this appliance multiply the number of kilowatts by the price of one kwh from your electricity bill. It is also very useful if there are two modes of operation of an appliance to record both – ie a washing machine heating its own water and when cold water is used, or air conditioning set to heating mode and also to cooling.
Undertaking this process with solar power has always been iffy at best. There has been no real efficient means for doing it. That is now changing and molten salt batteries are a big part of the change. To understand how they work, we first have to understand what they are and how they are used.
According to research by Clean Edge, a leading research firm that tracks and analyzes clean-tech markets and trends, production and wholesale pricing of biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel reached $34.8 billion in 2008 and are projected to grow to $105.4 in 2018. Clean Edge also estimates that wind power will expand from $51.4 billion in 2008 to $139.1 billion in 2018, and solar power will grow from $29.6 billion in 2008 to $80.6 billion in 2018.
I don’t plan on waiting till it is to late to start making changes. Learning to live with lifestyle changes also takes time. Now is the time to take action.
