    Elon Musk’s Influence on the Solar Power Industry

    If you’ve been following the story of the Elon Musk-owned Tesla, you’ve heard about the CEO’s influence on the solar company. But what exactly is Musk’s influence on solar power and the lawsuit against it? We’ll explain why Musk might be the one to blame for the current solar energy price hike and why the […]

  • Alternative Sources of Electricity Generation

    Alternative Sources of Electricity Generation

    Renewable energy sources like wind, solar-thermal, and photovoltaics are available to generate electricity. These sources are also beneficial in conserving water and reducing CO2 emissions. There are several advantages of using these types of power. This type of electricity can be generated in any location. These sources are considered as green energy because they help […]

  • Non-Renewable Energy Sources and Jobs

    Non-Renewable Energy Sources and Jobs

    Finite Resources An example of a non-renewable resource is carbon-based fossil fuels. Carbon-based fossil fuels are produced from organic matter and converted into power through pressure and heat. These non-renewable resources are used for various energy sources—however, the resources we use to reduce the Earth’s carbon footprint. To find new non-renewable fuels, we need to […]

  • Limitations of Renewable Energy Statistics

    Limitations of Renewable Energy Statistics

    The current global share of renewable energy is a little over two-thirds. By the decade’s end, this share should be up to thirty-three percent, but that share will continue to decline as new technologies come online. In addition, renewables in the U.S. electricity mix will remain at about twenty-eight percent. This is well above the […]

  • How Solar Thermal Energy Can Reduce Your Heating Bills

    How Solar Thermal Energy Can Reduce Your Heating Bills

    The concept of solar thermal energy is simple: heat can be generated by letting sunlight fall directly on a vessel or a series of zig-zag copper pipes. Paint the pipes black to maximize the heat generation. A lens focusing sunlight onto one point can increase the heat generated. Other methods include concave mirrors, plain mirrors, […]

    The Future Potential of Solar Energy

    The Future Potential of Solar Energy – Unlike fossil fuels, solar energy will never have a cost as low as the current cost of solar power. It is cheap to produce and install, and its flexibility makes it a desirable alternative for both large cities and tiny homes. It could even be suitable for the […]

  • How Solar Energy Will Improve Our Planet and Our Lives

    How Solar Energy Will Improve Our Planet and Our Lives

    The sun gives off energy and transfers it to our planet and us. Radiation is then transmitted back to space and transfers energy many times. This cycle maintains the balance of power on Earth. When we use fossil fuels, we use energy already available on the planet. Luckily, we can harness sunlight to generate electricity. […]
