As an investor in solar energy, you may want to consider connecting your residential solar power system to the localized power grid via solar inverters. By doing so, you can save on your expenses – particularly, if you go with the right solar grid-tie inverters. Such equipment can convert the energy that the solar panels generate into usable AC power. With the converted energy, you can power your household appliances and personal devices while the excess energy retreats to the main power grid. In grid-tie inverters, you have an array of different varieties to take your pick from – for…

Solar Tubes help illuminate rooms by harnessing the power of the sun. The mechanism is very simple. These solar tubes allow sunlight to penetrate the roof and thus help to dissipate darkness from the room. If you want to reduce your electricity bills without investing in another fancy gadget, these Solar Tubes can come to your rescue. Most of these solar tubes are using patented optical technologies to improve their overall performance. To give people some perspective, a 10-inch solar tube can produce as much brightness as that of a 300 watts electric bulb. That is insane right? Probably this…

Global Warming and Climate Change form some of the most pressing issues of our age. A day rarely goes by when some aspect of Climate Change isn’t mentioned in the media. Lately, with the high expectations in the run up to Copenhagen, the failure of 192 heads of states to reach a legally binding agreement, the Glaciergate and UEA University Climategate scandals which played into the hands of the sceptics, many consumers have been left confused and bewildered, wondering what to believe. The BBC have reported that only 26% of consumers still have complete conviction in the Climate Change arguments…

The chances are you may have heard of solar heating systems already. Many homeowners are thinking about the possibilities offered by such systems when it comes to running their homes in a more efficient and sustainable way. If you are thinking about getting a solar heating system in future, it is wise to find out as much as you can about them before you jump in. Most of us are familiar with the idea of getting energy from solar panels fitted to the roof of our house. Even you don’t yet have a solar panel installation you might consider getting…

A battery in general can be considered as a power storage device. Depending on the power required, period of operation and some specific requirements, there are different kinds of batteries in the market. A commonly used battery, called lead-acid battery (normal), is mostly used in places where large amount of current is required for lesser periods. For purposes where consistent current flows are required for comparatively larger periods, a deep-cycle battery is used. Mostly these batteries can be seen in alternative energy projects such as solar or in our case backup solar systems. Like every other battery, deep-cycle battery also…

One can never be over prepared for a power outage. The fact is every month of the year there is an earthquake, hurricane, tornado, or disastrous fire. But you don’t have to experience Hurricane Ike to know the importance of being equipped for a major disaster. I am sure you have witnessed a storm or two and have been left without electricity. More often than not, local businesses will be sold out of emergency items. So today is the best time to take action and supply your home with the necessary equipment and goods for any crisis. Below is a…

More and more, the government warns us to prepare for emergencies. We buy flashlights, water and canned food. We hear that back-up generators are available but we can’t always gauge how these generators can help us. There are so many different styles that it is hard to choose what is right for our home or office. Many generators do not have enough power to take care of more than a few critical items such as radios, computer, cell phone charger and possibly the fridge. If your area experiences numerous power outages due to electrical storms, hurricanes or tornadoes, you may…

At present the state of the planet is of huge concern, the environmental crisis is certainly spurring on some amazing innovation in the field of renewable energy systems. The truth of global warming demands that we aggressively pursue innovative methods to produce clean affordable energy while restoring our environment’s health. Solar power and wind power are the two main available sources of power on our planet. Both are renewable energy sources and are abundant all year round in all areas, but still produce less than 5% of the world’s electric power. We are now capable to combine the most powerful…

The need of the hour is sustainable and green energy. We can no longer afford to emit tones of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, nor can we cope with the rising fuel prices anymore. The myth of infinite natural reserves has been dispelled. We have lot other renewable sources of energy all around us to be tapped. Wind is a form of solar energy. The irregular heating of the atmosphere by the sun, the irregularities of the earth’s surface, plus rotation of the earth causes winds. This wind flow, or wind energy, when “harvested” by wind turbines produces energy which…

Tidal power is generated by using up to three different methods. Building a Barrage There is remarkable similarities between building a dam and developing a barrage. The barrage has to be built on tidal estuary so that the water can sip in and fill the tidal basin. The basin is then closed off once it is filled with water. Then gates are lifted once the tide goes out. The water flows through other side of the basin and the force of the water causes the turbines to spin and it will start creating electricity. Installing a Tidal Fence A tidal…
