What are the benefits of having a solar energy home to live in? We all hear stories about how it can save money, or even make us money, but how is this so? What’s so great about solar energy anyway? Doesn’t it cost a lot to have a solar panel array set up for using it all to generate your own electricity? Let’s take a look at the answers to these in the three major benefits below…
The same principles that apply to living off grid can also be used for any house, even if it’s still connected to the grid. You can use windmills, hydropower or solar panels if you want to get your energy at least partially from renewable energy, while getting rid of energy provided by power plants.
The power nap or afternoon nap can refresh and revitalize without adding any stress on the digestive system. Mental rejuvenation from a short nap is an energy boost that takes only a few minutes. Scientific research suggests that 20 minutes is a perfect amount of time. This ensures that you don’t reach deep sleep levels that can result in grogginess and slow reaction times after waking. The research also says it is more effective than caffeine to deliver higher production levels and improved safety on the job. Hyundai automotive of South Korea gives its workers time for a nap as part of their daily work schedule.
Not only will you build up higher levels of green energy after a workout, your abs will become stronger. Granted strength of your abs is not entirely what you’re after, however the strength should be seen as a testament of how you’re getting results with each abs workout!
Buy clothes that last. When you do need to purchase a new item of clothing, choose something that will last for years- not just in terms of durability, but timelessness in style. A classic dress made with inorganic cotton that you keep for 20 years is a lot more eco-friendly than a trendy one made with organic hemp that you only wear for one season.
When we say energy saving hour it doesn’t only mean that we are only saving energy. We are also saving water. The most common source of energy comes from hydropower. Since water is a common source of our energy it means if we don’t have enough supply of water we have less supply of electricity too. With this fact, it’s telling us that we need to conserve water as possible. Examples would be fixing our water line that have leaks or damaged or minimizing our shower time. If it takes about 10 minutes to take a shower then you can minimize it to 5 minutes if it’s okay with you. Through this you are conserving a lot of water.
We can cut our energy use way down by being super conscious about conserving. Where ever possible we can use systems that do not require a lot of electricity or fuel. Consider walking or riding a bike instead of exclusively driving everywhere. Use a clothes line to dry clothes instead of only using a dryer. Recycle everything possible. If you have the space and ability, grow a garden and do some food preparation and storage; like drying fruit and vegetables. Grow extra food to trade for things you need. Create community around you and develop a system for sharing and trading.
There are also many means of building and creating your own form of renewable energy, such as solar panels, wind generators, and micro hydropower. A lot of these can be done for little money, and help create energy on smaller scales.
