Before we can estimate the required size for your autonomous solar panels, we first need to calculate our total energy consumption per day. To do this, we have prepared a practical guide with the simple steps described below: 1. Calculate our total energy consumption First, we need to calculate the energy consumed by our household
In continuation from energy saving tips – house wall insulation, in the case of solid walls, insulation is applied to either the inside or the outside surface. In contrary to the case of cavity walls, where insulation is usually applied by filling the middle gap, insulating a solid wall is considered of primal importance as
Continuing from previous article on energy saving tips – house wall insulation, in the case of cavity walls, insulation is applied by filling the gap between the two wall layers with insulating material. What a good performing insulating material does is to keep heat inside in winter and keep heat from entering in your home
It has been calculated that around 35% of all heat losses in homes with poor or no insulation is wasted through the walls. As in first law of thermodynamics, heat flows from a hotter body to a colder one until thermal equilibrium is reached. So in winter, heat flows from inside (hotter) to the outside,
Tips for renewable energy at home – When it comes to renewable energy systems for your home there are several alternative options depending on the specific circumstances of your location and physical features, environmental – climatic conditions and physical characteristics of the location
Solar energy – Sun power; Solar energy is energy powered by the sun – a renewable and abundant source of energy that has been powering life on earth for billions of years. Solar energy reaches the earth through solar radiation (sun rays) and once gathered it can
When we talk about green buildings we refer to the application of techniques and principles for reducing the environmental footprint of ‘having’ and using a building. Constructing and maintaining a green building incorporates applying green principles at all stages; designing, building and using it.
Fossil fuels may be an inexpensive solution for power generation but they pollute the environment and they cannot last forever; that is why we are turning to alternative renewable energy sources to cover for our energy needs at all levels, residential, commercial or utility scale power applications.
If depletion of fossil fuels and harmful atmospheric emissions that lead to global warming, on one hand, and our capacity to exploit the vast potential of solar power, on the other, do not convince you towards adopting alternative energy choices, here are 10 solar energy facts that may help you choose Solar Power for Home.
