Money is a little tighter and the average American researches products and services heavily before they decide to make a commitment and buy it. Also influencing their decision is the growing concern over climate change and ways to mitigate the rising issues associated with it. Switching from gas and electric power to solar power and other alternative energy sources might be one of the ways that you can save money while also decreasing your carbon footprint.
It seems like every other day the words ‘Climate Change’ and ‘Clean Energy’ are being thrown about in the political arena. Some admit to the growing threat while others just ignore it. Nothing seems to be getting done. One of the reasons for this is that the people invested in the same kind of things that are destroying our planet, are the ones with their mouths to the politicians’ ear.

They don’t see a profit from climate […]
For a very long time the human race has been dependent on non-renewable energy sources. Electricity is a vital necessity of our modern human civilization. To produce electricity a huge amount of non-renewable energy resources like coal are used. The electricity producing procedures cause severe environmental pollution. We need energy for running commercial factories and household appliances.
Fossil fuels are on the decline and we have to reduce our dependence on them. Renewable energy sources provide us with viable option to replace fossil fuels as our energy source in the future. In the following sections, we will look at some such renewable energy sources that can hold the key to a future devoid of fossil fuel energy.
Arizona is all set to get its first Solar Wind Downdraft Tower in the City of San Luis. The city council of San Luis, Arizona, collectively approved “Development and Protected Development Rights Agreement,” which assures the necessities requires for the development of the first solar wind downdraft tower in the city.
Recently, there is a lot of attention that is being drawn to green energy or alternative energy sources. The world is struggling to keep pace with the spiralling increase in demand for fuel and with global warming creating havoc; countries are trying to seek cleaner and greener fuels. Green energy has immense potential and is the future of tomorrow as it will be a source of clean energy that can resolve many issues related to both the climate and economy of the world.
With the ever-growing population and its craving for energy, fossil fuels are on the verge of being finished. Fossil fuels are the major source of our energy requirements for almost all day-to-day activities. The shorter supplies of natural fuels like coal and petroleum have led the world in danger also because the burning of these fuels release carbon dioxide, which is responsible for the increase in the Planet’s temperature, also called as the “Green House Effect”.
Commercial buildings are working towards utilizing sustainable resources to power HVAC systems. The idea is to create economic, eco-friendly and energy efficient systems that will create a healthy environment for its residents. Also, green buildings enjoy tax concessions and attract customers who support environmental causes and also because they lower utility costs.
Although much has been said and written about geothermal energy sources, not many exactly know what it is, where it comes from or what are the pros and cons of using such energy. It is a known fact that core of the earth is in a molten state. The heat from this core is projected to the earth’s surface, and is distributed evenly across it by what are called geological aka geothermal layers in between. The heat that comes from these layers is tapped into reservoirs, which in turn are used to produce energy for various sources. Thus, the energy produced is called geothermal energy. And here are some of […]
