Worst Solar Excuses

Experts have talked to a number of our friends and other colleagues about solar power, we've been hearing a lot of the same excuses for not going solar.

Preserve the Batteries in your Storage Bank

If you have a solar installation and you use batteries connected to a load, it doesn't take long to learn you have a real problem on your hands because there just isn't enough solar energy to keep the batteries charged during those long dark cloudy periods.

Performance Standards For Solar Modules And Collectors - Why They Are Important?

Guidelines and standards provide a level playing field for all parties. Retailers, purchasing agencies and consumers must be able to evaluate the merits of solar devices based on a common set of industry-approved standards if we hope to achieve broad market penetration.

Solar Energy Potential At Different Latitudes

I was surprised to see that, in Germany, where they receive a fewer amount of energy with respect to other countries, by the end of 2003 had clearly invested more in solar panels than many other countries which get more solar energy than them.

No Apologies

"Renewable energy works; it is as reliable as the sunrise; it will help us keep our planet habitable; and it's an excellent, cost-effective investment to make; NOW."

Going solar is a fundamental decision. It is not just about saving some money in the long run. It is a lifestyle. Although the solar industry has come a long way and is now very well developed, it is still in an experimental stage.

There Is No Global Fresh Water Issue

Zonnewater developed a desalination unit based on solar energy (95% thermal and 5% photovoltaic or wind energy), suited for coastal areas with an average temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. The prototype is a small one cubic meter greenhouse-type construction that produces 40 litres of water per day.

Beginner's Guide To Solar And Wind Energy

The question is why are you interested in using solar or wind energy? Is it because you need some back-up electricity for when the utility grid is unavailable? Or is it because you want to spend less money per month on electricity?

Sustainability At Home

Living with an 'ecological consciousness' is the way of connecting with the life-giving energy of the earth and understanding that our soul and the earth are one in the same.
