Recently we celebrated Earth Hour - with 1 hour of power cut all around the world. The fact that we had to go through such a demonstration points clearly at how serious the scarcity of electricity can be in some countries in the future.
And yet we don't use the available resources optimally so that we don't have to rely on conventional sources of electrical energy.
Solar energy may sound to techie and complicated, but in the true sense of it, it is not so. Solar panels and solar power generators are quite simple, and once installed, they can go on and on for a long time, with very little annual maintenance costs. And the results is - free power and electricity for you!
Even though the initial installation requires a bit of investment, the long term results can be very beneficial for us.
- We would not have to rely on the power company!
- Monthly bills will go down
- This system is Eco Friendly and everlasting
- You can even sell solar power that you generate using batteries and cells
- Fight pollution effectively!
Isn't this simply amazing? We can at least gather more information on solar power and the other non-conventional sources of energy, and educate others if not start using them immediately ourselves! That might be the first step towards the bigger plan!
