Conserve of our planet with Ideal Energies

logo
Society in the last 2 decades has consumed our energy resources at such a rapid rate that we’re now starting to realise it’s of the utmost importance that we not only preserve these precious resources for ourselves but more importantly for our generations ahead of us. Governments around the world are now starting to realise they need to pass laws that make it mandatory to install renewable energy systems such as solar power, heat pumps, double glazing windows and overall energy efficient homes, in many places across Europe and the US for that matter it is now mandatory to install solar power systems on all new house builds.

The reason you’re reading this article is you’re probably aware of this and the need for you to make your own contribution in some way, we thank you for this, as if every person on this planet did just their own little bit it would mean we would have a much cleaner renewable energy world to live in. Of course, this comes with benefits to yourself such as cost reduction and living in a much cleaner environment which does not burn unnecessary fossil fuels. Today we’ll  explore a few of these such options and let you make the decision on what would be best for you and your household.  We’ll also give you a brief introduction to an amazing business called Ideal Energies which is at the forefront of renewable energy technology.

Solar Power

Solar power harnesses the energy of one of our greatest energy assets, the sun, it then converts this energy into electricity often directly through a method that is referred to as photovoltaics or at other times indirectly using concentrated solar power or otherwise known by it’s acronym of CSP. The latter of these uses lenses/mirros as well as tracking systems to concentrate a large area of sunlight into a much smaller beam, thus concentrating the energy and making it easier to convert into electricity.

That’s all great you may ask, but how does it benefit me? Simply put you will acquire massive cost saving benefits by installing a solar power system,  as it is totally self sufficient and you don’t need to rely on the normal grid system. A system like this is also great for use in rural areas where access to the grid is not possible or countries like South Africa for example where they have massive energy supply problems.  We strongly recommend you to look into solar systems, not only for your benefit but for future generations to come.

IF that’s not good news enough for you, you will be pleased to know that in many states in the US, federal governments are now actually offering rebates to all home owners who have renewable energy systems installed in their homes. The premise is simple, they know the value of these systems for conserving the planets and they would like you to have them installed as soon as possible. Bare in mind this won’t last forever as we will eventually get to a point where they feel there are enough systems installed and they will stop offering these rebates. Simply put, there is no better time than now to have one of these systems installed.

 

Earlier we mentioned just the company for your solar panels installation, you won’t be disappointed if you use the services of http://www.idealenergies.com. They are industry leaders in this field and use only the most cutting edge technology when installing your systems. You can rest assured that not only will your energy savings be in good hands but you will receive the utmost proffesiliasm from Idea Energies.

 

Ideal Energies  are a Minnesota based company taking a different path into alternative energy and environmental solutions for you business. They believe that doing the smart thing for your enterprise and the right thing for the environment don’t have to be at odds. Personally we think this is one of the best company statements we’ve read and we would not hesitate to recommend them. Of course don’t just take our word for it, you can view some of their past clients here and read more about what the company has to offer here.  They also offer some incredible financing options and have a feature packed resources page should you require any further information.

Should you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact them at this email, they’re also on Facebook   and would love to hear from you on there as well. Well done on taking the first step to preserving our lovely planet and we wish you all the best.

Start your Eco journey today with Solar panels

solarSolar energy is one of those merging technologies that can really help make a huge difference in the way we humans interact with our planet. For decades we have abused the planet we live in and the times are starting to change. As people realize the affects of global warming and the irreversible damage we’re doing to the planet, they have started to become a lot more Eco aware. You may be thinking to yourself well, how do I make a difference? There are so many ways you can make a difference in your own home, one of the best and most eco efficient ways is to get a Solar system installed in your home.

 

Not only will you be reducing you energy reliance, but you’re using a sustainable renewable energy source which means you’re doing a lot more good for the environment. This of course comes with the added benefit of cost savings! It’s time to make a change in the way we interact with our planet and you can start making that change today. If you’re looking for a reliable solar panel provider then have a chat with the guys at solar Cleveland Ohio who will be more than happy to help with any questions you may have.

solar energy, solar benefitsAs you probably can see the solar energy is starting to become one of the greatest method of harvesting every from the Sun. But today I want to tell you about the people behind the technology, the people that are developing and imagine new ways to improve the solar panels efficiency and output power, or using the collected energy to power different devices.
 
There are a number of technologies being researched but we live in a world where the highest efficiency technologies are either unaffordable or are not yet put into production. For long life, solar cells must be protected from the elements using surface coating treatments.
Also the solar panel orientation is very important and for highest output power the solar panels must be perpendicular to the sun’s rays.  That is why engineers developed a different solar tracking system that allows the solar panel to rotate with the sun.
 
Assuming we have a surface coated panel and a solar tracker system we still need some additional equipment. One of this is the solar charge controller which is intended for charging the batteries. Without the controller it won’t be possible to charge the batteries in a efficient and safe way.
We still need one more thing in order to have a complete solar powered installation and that is the inverter. It is used to convert the power from the batteries to a usable voltage of 230V or 110V. There are a lot of inverters available on the market but you really need to pay attention in choosing one.
 
You can find a great collection of solar powered projects online including a diy solar tracking system, power inverter, ways to maximize the solar panel efficiency, voltage controllers and a lot of useful circuits that are powered from  the solar power. The possibilities are endless and so is our imagination, so let’s start to adopt the solar technology faster because it will be rewarding and more ECO friendly.
