There are two ways of transforming solar energy to electricity: either through the use of concentrated solar power (CSP) or Photovoltaics (PV). Each method of creating solar power uses different materials and equipments and so the installation costs will vary. Solar power installation has benefited homeowners by cutting their power bills and saving money. But [...]
Man was made to rule over and take care of His creations. But religion is not the only aspect in our life that calls us to be concerned of the welfare of the environment. Our health, happiness and the future generations likewise depend on how we use and manage the Earth at present. Caring for [...]
One concern that we have to address when managing our homes is how we can save and use energy efficiently. As technology advances and the population continues to grow, total energy consumption will continue to increase. Although there are many new cost-effective and energy-efficient appliances available our dependence on technology will continue to put pressure on our [...]
Producing energy from wind has been the biggest environmental breakthrough in the last decade and the wind-energy industry is the fastest growing energy industry in the world.
Insulation improves a homes energy efficiently by a large amount but currently, up to 40 percent of Australian homes are uninsulated. The Government is working to help improve the energy efficiently of Australian homes, but this, like most things takes time and money.
Solar PV cells are the latest panels that use a natural resource to create power. The Photovoltaic (PV) cells are installed on your roof and use energy from the sun to create electricity. This electricity can run both appliances and provide lighting for your home.
Everyday we use fuels that give us power. Fossil fuels are burned everyday, but they are bad for the environment and once they are gone we cannot get more. Fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas are used to make energy and power and they are in limited supply.
We need light in our homes to see when the sun goes down, and no environmental activist is going to suggest we go without. Lighting is important and can be obtained using power that wont effect the environment. Solar power is a form of energy used to produce light and that source can be easily [...]
Burning coal produces the vast majority of electricity in Australia, and this is a serious contributor to the problem of global warming. One of the ways that you can help fight this problem is by sourcing your household energy from environmentally friendly, renewable production methods.
