Solar Power And Eco-Friendly Products

Sun always stands poised as an exemplary of energy. What if this energy can change our way of life for better? Solar power can readily change all our lives and carry everyone from this hectic world to a greener planet.

The solar energy which amounts up to 35,000 times more than the total energy used up by man can be converted into electricity by using either the photovoltaic’s (PV) or the concentrated solar power (CSP). While the PV render a direct aid by converting the sunlight into electric current using the photoelectric effect, whereas, the CSP indirectly uses lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to concentrate on a wide area of sunlight into a small beam. It has been proved beyond doubt that the electricity produced from solar energy doesn’t emit carbon, thus controlling the pollution rate as well as shields the earth from the adverse effects of global warming.

The renowned actor Ed Begley Jr. who enacted the role of an environmental activist in his real life and also on his TV show “Living with Ed“ is all set to save the planet. He enunciates, “If I didn’t have solar, I would probably be using $3000 to $5000 a month on electricity. And I live in a small home. The savings can be even greater depending on your home size, level of home efficiency, and geographic capability to make solar power. The key is to conserve and make your home as efficient as possible. Then, when you do get solar power, you don’t need as large a system to provide your power needs. A kilowatt saved in much cheaper than a kilowatt produced. That’s what I did, and now it’s really paying off”. Having ventured into the commercial world with Begley’s Best where you can avail any household cleaning chore which is stringently pollution free, he has lead the populace to save the planet.

There are myriad equipments that facilitate solar power such as:

Solar powered lights

Solar-powered lights can be used as decoration lights or as a security light, thus saving up the electric charges.

Solar water heater can warm your water against the electric heater. Moreover, the income tax write offs are the biggest benefits for all those who install this new piece of eco-friendly machinery in their homes.

Vast amount of electricity is wasted for charging the cell phones and other gadgets. This can be reduced by utilizing solar energy that can charge any gadgets.

Solar oven

Solar energy oven is yet another back-up plan that can save your pockets. It procures direct sunlight and heats the food items to above 300 levels of temperature.

At this juncture, it is worthwhile to quote the significant words of Thomas Alva Edison, the greatest scientist who spread light to the world with his invention of an electric bulb. “I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy, what a source of Power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”
