Top 5 Reasons to Utilize to Solar Power

Get out your shades and get ready for summer! The sun is shining and that means potential energy is waiting to be harvested. Residential use of solar panels is a growing trend. Why? Here are some of the top reasons solar powered homes are on the rise.

1 – Environmental Advantages

Generation of energy from the sun has no harmful after effects on the environment in the way that mining and drilling for fossil fuels does. No greenhouse gasses, no habitat destruction, no human cost through accidents and equipment malfunctions. Even though the photovoltaic materials contained within the solar cells are toxic, recycling technologies have been advancing to combat that eventual problem.

Top 5 Ways to Use Solar Power for Your Home

While summer may mean taking extra precautions against sun exposure for our bodies, it is an excellent time to consider taking advantage of the sun’s energy in your home. Humans have been harvesting the sun’s power for centuries. Here are some ways you can use it now for home solar power.

Home Solar Power Tip #1 – Old fashioned clothes dryers

Before the advent of the gas or electricity powered clothes dryer, all clothes were dried on lines, usually outside to use the wealth of heat supplied by the sun. This low-tech process reduces energy usage (84 percent of US energy comes from the burning of fossil fuels). Additionally, hanging your clothes outside to dry leaves them with a lovely natural scent.

What You Need to Know About Solar Power Energy

Solar power. Mother Nature’s endless and free resource seems to just be waiting to be harvested. For centuries, humans have used the sun to heat water and for food preparation. Greater use of energy technologies has made solar power energy more common. Here is a brief overview of some facts and uses.

Lighting Uses
Construction practices since Roman times reflect the importance humans place on light. Now we even recognize depression can follow darkness. Use of natural light in modern building practices lessens dependence on artificial lights, which use fossil fuel power sources. Skylights and room design can make use of free sources of light.
