Hello everyone and welcome to the blog. We live in a time dominated by gadgets and technology. Almost everything around us, that makes our lives luxurious, requires energy. Exhaustible sources of energy such as natural gas and fossil fuels are only in a limited amount. If we keep using them at the current pace, there will be none left in the future. Hence, all around the world, people are switching to green energy.
You can harness the power of the sun or the energy of the fast blowing winds, but why? How would that be any better from your current sources of energy? Here are 4 ways green energy helps make your life at home worth living:
Green Energy Sources Have A Steadier Service
Green energy sources are in a sense more reliable than the traditional sources of energy. Since the solar power plants or windmill farms are distributed across the area and not concentrated at an individual location, they are less prone to stop service because of disturbances like bad weather or equipment failure.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint and Make the Air Cleaner
Green energy sources produce little or no waste products. This includes carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other harmful gases. Hence, they are very environment-friendly. This makes the air around you cleaner and healthier to inhale and reduces your carbon footprint at the same time. Depending on where they are located, solar power plants offset their carbon footprint in just about four years.
Green energy facilities require less maintenance than traditional equipment such as generators. They also help cut down on fuel costs, because the fuel is absolutely free. There is no charge for harnessing the sunshine and the wind! It also increases the value of your home by 3-5 per cent, which in today’s date is a huge thing.
It Is Easy to Switch to A Greener Way of Life
Ask your current utility provider if they offer a green option or look for REC (Renewable Energy Certificate) provider. If you want to start slow, start with rooftop solar panels. There has been a drop of roughly 65 per cent in the prices of solar panels in the past 5 years. On top of that, the government also provides with incentives to switch over. So why wait.
