Solar energy is formed by the suns radiation, making it one of the most natural and renewable forms of energy. It is cheap because the sun comes out every day, and all that we need are panels to harness the radiation and convert it into energy. This energy can be stored in batteries and used for various tasks that are also performed by electricity. We could use solar energy for lighting, heating water and many other things. We might want to push for greater use of solar energy as compared to electric energy, but it is almost impossible to convince people about that because they are too accustomed to electricity. There are however, things such as bills passed by our leaders that can bring about that change, but that would mean voting in the right leaders. In this article, we are going to look at some of the advantages of solar energy so that we can encourage you to vote in the right leaders to push for the solar energy cause.
Renewable Energy Source
The most important thing about solar energy is the fact that it is renewable. It can be harnessed everyday as long as there is sunlight, and sunlight being a gift from god, I don’t think that we will ever run out of it.
Reduces Electricity Bills
The fact that you will be supplementing your electricity with solar, where necessary, your electricity bills will drastically drop. The amount of energy saved would actually depend on the amount of power being generated by your solar. There is also the fact that if you generate more electricity than you need, the surplus will be exported back to the grid and you will receive bonus payments for that amount (considering that your solar panel system is connected to the grid). Savings can further grow if you sell excess electricity at high rates during the day and then buy electricity from the grid during the evening when the rates are lower.
Solar energy can be used for diverse purposes such as generate electricity (photovoltaics) or heat (solar thermal). It can also be used to produce electricity in areas without access to the energy grid, to distill water in regions with limited clean water supplies and to power satellites in space. Solar energy can also be integrated into the materials used for buildings. Not long ago Sharp introduced transparent solar energy windows.
Well, now you have a reason why you should go and vote in the right leaders that you think can champion the use of solar energy. By voting, you have the power to decide the future, and in this case, you would be making an impact by encouraging the use of solar. Philadelphia 3.0 was formed with the aim of influencing the elections. It consists of businessmen and professionals that could include fishermen. The main reason that it was formed back in 1904 was because Philadelphia seemed to be going to the dogs. The main aim was to rally behind candidates that they believed were best suited for the seat so as to root out things like corruption.
Now we know the importance of solar energy, and we know that one of the best ways to make it effective is to elect leaders that that will champion for it. In the event that you feel lost about the elections, Philadelphia 3.0 will be there to ensure that all goes well.
