We have heard about the use of alternative energy but there are a good many who are flummoxed about the concept. In simple terms alternative energy is power that doesn’t originate from fossil fuels. Replacing the old order of hydrocarbons (coal, fuel oil, natural gas) which are the sources of carbon dioxide with substitute energy can make the planet a whole lot greener. Because of the old adage this has contributed to a bad case of global warming.
One of the forms of alternate energy sources is available from the sun – solar energy. This is easily available and the supply is infinite. The need to worry that the gas supply is getting over or firewood or even kerosene for the cash starved can be done away with.
Wind power as a source of energy is a constant in the earth’s atmosphere. Without worrying about exhausting the resources one can rest easy. A culmination of the two will definitely ensure that mankind will be taken care of for a long time.
Making use of solar energy will certainly work in favor for the average man as the need to spend copious amounts of money is limited. The government encourages the use of solar based energy and with this the tax benefits. Because of this many homes in various parts of the globe have been switching over to the use of the energy. The initial investment is on the higher side but in the long run the ramifications are stupendous. The monthly savings are brought down and the need to worry about gas emissions into the environment is done away with. Solar lanterns have lit up many villages in backward areas in India. Though civilization has evolved in many pockets, it is pretty unfortunate that areas that need light are not equipped to see in the dark.
Lack of guidance about the use of natural energy has made the society lose a wonderful opportunity. We as a whole spend unceremoniously on irrelevant objects of desire and throw them away when we are bored. Due to the constant use of fire, gas and electricity the environment has turned awry.
Constant guidelines must be laid down so that the reach is provided to every household, irrespective of economic grades. This will definitely work down the line for everybody to switch over to the right side.
The government provides subsidies and rebates on land tax for people who use alternative energy. In fact capital discounts are available for the putting into place an organized solar heating system to many commercial establishments and residences as well. The buzzword these days is being efficient in use of energy. This trend has got many people gearing to learn more and try to improvise the quality of life; at least the ones who want to save the planet!
