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

There is no doubt that green energy is gaining more popularity than ever. New systems are showing up everyday, while more and more people adopt them according to their financial possibilities. There are more or less expensive products out there and everyone can get something useful done for the environment.

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.

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.
