I get a lot of questions about when solar makes sense vs. geothermal. Both alternative energy technologies harness the power of the sun. Solar captures the energy of the sun by exciting electrons in silicon and capturing that energy in wires. Geothermal takes advantage of the solar heat stored in the ground, which is about 50-55 degrees year round just a few feet below the surface.
Okay, how about a giant lake, we pump water into it during the day using excess electricity and run turbines at night to generate electricity? Now were talking! But wait, electric pumps are about 50% efficient at pumping water, and turbines are 90% efficient at turning that potential energy into power. That leaves us with as system 45% efficient.
Switching to solar panels el paso tx power will save you big bucks on your energy bills. Once you have your system running for the production of solar energy, you will quickly see your electric bills decrease. You can save at least 10% up to around 70% in most cases depending on the size of your system.
Most of the supplies to make solar energy kits are inexpensive and can be found at almost any hardware store or electronics retailer. The main component of building the kits are the solar cells themselves. They are readily available on the internet. There are websites such as eBay, Amazon and solar energy companies that sell mono-crystalline solar cells.
But sit down and do your math. Add up all the costs and deduct what you are might receive on installation and then when installed how much you will financially benefit from it. It’s not as much as you might think and you may not be able to rely on the continuance of these benefits in a year or so.
We installed a free solar electric system, yes that’s right, free! The total install was over $100,000 but we paid nothing. So how many of you would love to install a free solar energy system, but the cost has been holding you back? Did I say free? Yes, there is no cost, but how does that work?
Solar energy panels are very convenient to use for our home and establishment. If you want to know more regarding solar energy panels, feel free to go online to the internet to search. There are lots and different sites that offer information on solar panels.
