Hydropower has been a slumbering giant in the energy game. Since the 1960s, its use has actually gone down compared to other energy sources. This is beginning to change.
The following are some basic uses of solar energy. Generate electricity. A solar electric generating system can enable you to reduce your electric bills to zero. (Expensive but there are cost effective solutions worth looking into) Heat spaces. With strategic use of blinds, awnings, and sunrooms, you can heat your home in winter inexpensively. Heat water. The sun can warm your water, and the water can warm your house. Pump water. Pump water into a tank when the sun is shining, and then use the water at any time. Light your landscape. Solar lights around your yard prevent accidents. Light your indoors. Rather than use on-grid lamps, use solar ones. Power remote locations, such as a cabin, RV or boat. Cooking. Build solar-powered ovens and heaters with which to cook food.
hydropower, or water power, required a bit more research. At first, Tom was exasperated, looking at all the work involved. He had thought he could pile up dirt in the back corner of his backyard, set up a source of water, run it through a pipe to a generator that would not only supply electricity to their house, but also pump the water back up the hill to the source of water, to have it go all over again. What a lot of work!
The next frontier is Water Turbines.These are similar to wind turbines and are placed in the water currents. The current spins the turbine to produce electricity. This technology dates back to the Romans. Nova Scotia has a turbine producing 20 MW since 1984. La Rance barrage in Normandy puts out 240 MW and was installed in 1966. In 2007 New York City tried installing turbines in the Hudson river. The current was so strong it was snapping the 20 foot blades. In 2010 using what they have learned a new project is under way to install 30 underwater turbines in the East river between Queens and Roosevelt Island. The completion will be sometime in 2011 if all goes according to schedule.
In short, the time is now. The federal government is on the verge of cracking down on the energy industry. In order to meet changing federal regulations, it’s crucial that you produce sustainable energy. And with so many biomass advantages, you’d be hard pressed to find a better alternative.
The sun is big – it forms about 99% of the matter in the solar system. It produces most the energy needed for life on earth today. The energy the earth receives from the sun is just a very tiny portion of the energy produced by it. Most of the sun’s energy radiates out into the empty void of space.
