You ask what is renewable energy? Well it is energy that comes from natural resources like wind, rain, sunlight and tides, which are all Types of Renewable Energy and can be harnessed to generate power. Everyone anywhere has natural resources around them so it is a perfect opportunity to utilize these resources. You can live anywhere in the country wether it’s rural or even in the city & still have access to your own renewable energy and not even know it. There are many way’s to do this by using solar panels, solar hot water systems, wind generation & even stand alone solar systems which are a combination of several of these Types of Renewable Energy.
Why pay the electricity company’s to supply your power when you can have your own renewable energy source to power your home. I was always dreading my power bill every 3 months now I don’t get a power bill & am saving money just from having my own solar system. We had a rebate from the government when we put our solar system in, so we benefited & so did the environment & so could you.
Everyone is looking to help the environment & to reduce greenhouse gas emissions & what better way to achieve this than with renewable energy. The Australian government wants by 2020 that 20 per cent of our Electricity supply to come from Renewable Types of Energy.
In Australia you can get paid to put power back into the mains power supply grid so not only are you helping the environment, also the electricity company is paying you for putting power back into the grid so this is very beneficial for you. To do this is by using solar panels on you roof so that the sunlight produces electricity through the panels that you have. They require little maintenance & can last 20 years or more.
There are many Types of Renewable Energy that you can use around your home for 1 there is solar hot water systems. Why not have hot water anytime of the day without having to worry about how much it is costing you. You just have to jump in have a shower & when you get your next electricity bill compare & have a look to see how much you have saved. These day’s the government gives rebates on solar hot water system’s so check with your government & see if you can receive these rebates now.
Another way that you can use Types of Renewable Energy is by using wind turbines & this is done by the wind turning the propellers to make electricity & it can be put into your battery bank. These are very good if you have a place with a lot of wind & are usually used in the stand-alone systems.
So using any of these ideas will reduce greenhouse gas emissions & help our environment.
