Residential Solar Power Battery
The need for alternative sources of power continues to grow as the drain on the current electrical grid continues to grow congruently. In recent years, many businesses and home owners have discovered the benefits of using natural resources to harness energy. One such source of natural energy is solar power, or power derived from the sun’s energy. Solar energy has come a long way since its beginning. While solar panels are still widely being used and are very effective, they have their drawbacks in that energy is not captured on cloudy or rainy days. It is only when the sun is shining that the panels are able to absorb the sun’s energy. One company has attempted to solve this problem. Tesla Motors, the maker of the luxury electric sedans, is beginning its own research into an alternative way to capture the renewable energy of the sun.
Just think about it– the Sun can produce solar energy for at least another five billion years; this energy is free, clean, doesn’t pollute the air around us like the fossil fuels do. More importantly, solar energy helps reduce the greenhouse effect. These are reasons to go solar.
We all need a roof and are always looking for ways to make electricity more affordable. Solar Roof Shingles are a great way to get the best of both worlds. Solar energy provides an endless supply of safe and renewable energy which can be used for heat and power. Solar roof shingles are an extremely efficient way of turning a shingle roof into an energy producer. These hybrid shingles protect your roof from bad weather and also consume solar power transforming it into usable energy. Continue reading
