What is it about our diet? Our intuition tells us something is not quite right. Maybe we don’t quite have the energy, stamina and vitality that we would like. Maybe our skin is not quite as beautiful as we would like. Maybe we are just a little bit concerned with our weight. Maybe we seem to need more sleep. Maybe we’re always sick. The reason most people make a change to what they eat is because of some sort of health challenge.
Photons (energy that light produces) are captured from the sun. Crystalline silicone cells conduct the electric current. Voltage generated by this can then be harnessed for storage in batteries for future use or be harnessed for direct use by connecting it to the home or building requiring power.
Power4Home offers simple plans for you to build your own power supplier generators. These plans use simple materials and most individuals complete the project for less than two-hundred dollars. Most families spend close to that amount on energy costs in just one month during the hot summer or cold winter months.
The sun is big – it forms about 99% of the matter in the solar system. It produces most the energy needed for life on earth today. The energy the earth receives from the sun is just a very tiny portion of the energy produced by it. Most of the sun’s energy radiates out into the empty void of space.
Now, Tom set his sights on working out a plan to take his home “off the grid”, out of the hands of the public electric works. He needed a way to provide his own electricity, so that he and Barbara could stop using electricity from the city. He did his research and found that he had three options for an alternative power source to bring electricity into their home: solar energy, wind power, and hydropower.
The best place to start is with goal setting. If you can set goals to reduce your energy consumption of gas, electricity, and the gallons of fuel used for you car, you can save tons of energy and reduce your monthly bill. Each month we can continue to use less and less energy, while saving more money, and creating a more sustainable community.
Except for a few isolated life forms, all life on earth depends upon the sun and the energy it radiates. Only a very tiny percentage of the energy of the sun lands on the earth, but this is still an enormous amount of power. Enough to charge the weather systems which move about the planet and provide light for plants to grow and warmth for water to stay liquid. The fossil fuel upon which we depend is simply stored solar energy, produced long ago, which we can use to today. Our challenge is to use solar power for today’s energy needs.
