In previous article “Solar Energy facts – basic solar energy systems” we have reviewed how Solar energy systems can be classified into three main categories – solar photovoltaic, solar thermal and passive solar systems. Herein we review some important advantages and disadvantages of Photovoltaic (PV) panels.

Solar energy systems are technological applications that exploit solar power, energy supplied by the sun, and transform it in other forms of energy that can be useful to us; such as electricity to power our electric appliances or thermal energy to use it directly for heating purposes.

Solar energy systems are technological applications used to exploit the power of the sun. Solar systems such as solar thermal or solar photovoltaic PV panels are capable of capturing solar radiation from the sun and convert it to useful energy such as hot water, for heating of spaces or for home use, or direct electricity

Have you ever considered the amount of energy consumed by your vehicle? In U.S, transportation accounts to approximately 72% of total oil consumption – specifically for gas. If you think you have done everything you could to save energy from using your car then perhaps you are indeed getting the best gas mileage your vehicle

If you are planning to install a solar energy system at your home, make sure you address some important issues such as, assessing your home energy needs, accessing solar radiation data for your home area and estimating the appropriate solar energy system size for your needs.

Saving energy is the fastest, simplest and cheapest way of reducing environmental pollution by reduction of consumption of fossil fuels, such as oil.By following these 12 simple energy saving tips you can help save the environment and save money.

According to the Buildings Energy Data Book 2010, heating and cooling of space accounts for about 53% of our home utility bill.  In continuation of our introductory articles “ US home energy consumption – Energy audit at home” and    “Energy Saving Tips – easy, low cost tips to save energy at home” herein are some

According to the Buildings Energy Data Book 2010, space heating accounts for about 45% of our home utility bill and together with space  cooling they sum up to 53% of electricity expenses. Around half of space heating needs and double the amount of energy for space cooling comes consumption for water heating at about 18%

Easy, practical and low cost tips to save energy, save money and help improve the environment. Energy saving tips is a practical guide we have put together in a series of different areas to help you save money by reducing energy consumption at home, at work or by usage of your vehicle or transportation.
