Everyone is trying to save money and energy lately, which is a good thing! We all need to figure out ways we can save energy and get energy out of the natural resources that we have available to us. This is where Wind & Solar come in. It’s the truth that Wind is never going to stop, and as long as we’re still a planet the Sun will keep emmiting Solar Rays for us to capture for energy.
The question becomes, should i install a Solar Panel, or rely on wind power? Why not both?
You might think that a WInd Turbine in your backyard isn’t going to work. This would be true for a normal sized wind turbine, but a company called Urban Green Energy has developed a wind turbine that can be manufacturered small enough to be mounted on the roof of your home . The Empire State Building is actually converting to 100% wind power.
Solar Panels have been making huge strides in technology as well. Solar Energy is Clean, Affordable, and Sustainable energy that we should all embrace. First Solar is one of the Solar manufacturers that has actually been nominated as one of six finalists for the 2011 Zayed Future Energy Prize recognizing outstanding work in renewable energy and sustainability.
Both Solar & Wind might be outside of your financial budgets, but with Energy Tax Rebates available, these costs can make turning your home into an energy efficient home affordable. There are tax rebates available for both Residential Wind Turbines, as well as Solar Energy Systems.
Solar Panels and Wind Turbines can also talk to each other so you won’t have to rely on just one. If however you do decide to go one way or another, either way you are helping the environment and that’s what Going Green is all about.
