Solar Energy - Producing Green and Changing Power

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 105

Remember when TV's and cell phones and other electronic gadgets needed an upgrade only every two years instead of every year? Technology has done just about the same for solar power. The advances in the technologies and better efficiency are making solar power very competitive.

In a few years solar energy will be a part of our lives in ways that we can barely fathom. Just imagine, more individuals will be producing their own power. They will be able to sell back the electricity that they don't use.

In a few short years:

The individual will be better able to control costs that were previously out of a consumer's control.

Small businesses such as farms would benefit from having a second income apart from their main business and still be able to use their land and buildings, with minor changes.

Companies that service small power producing stations will emerge to service the mini power stations, which will create new jobs.

How will this effect the overall economy? Companies that have barely been heard of will be out in front.

Many individuals are using the new solar technologies to do everyday things that we used to have to plug in to the grid for like running outdoor lights and we now run water fountains with a solar powered pumps and farmers are using solar powered electric fences.

Solar energy isn't like the fuels we've gotten used to. The same sun that touches a solar panel can also heat your solar hot water panel, the lights on the outside of your home and charge your electronics. Not bad for one free energy source.

Portable solar power is going to set us free in many ways. As solar panels get smaller they are easier to bring with you. Many camping lanterns and flashlights are now solar powered. As solar technology advances more new products will be introduced for the outdoors.

Solar power is changing things in homes and businesses too. It is less expensive to light yards and parking lots with solar lights. Signs are solar powered. There are solar roof shingles. Transparent solar panels are being developed to be used to replace windows. People can use solar power to keep cars cool on a hot day.

The convenience of new technology is not just going to save us money; it is literally shifting where the power is. When you produce more of the energy you need more of the power is yours.
