Does solar energy employ more workers than coal, oil and gas combined


No not even close. Fossil fuel industries employ millons

Solar Air Heating - You Can Cut Utility Costs and Save Money


Solar energy is becoming very quickly recognized as one of the best alternatives to fossil fuels It is an abundant and renewable natural resource. It can be used to save energy in residential, commercial, and industrial settings. Solar technologies will use the sun's energy to provide heat, hot water, light, electricity, and cooling, for homes, businesses, and industry.

Many major advancements have been made in the solar technology fields over the recent years. Solar air heating is becoming more attractive than ever before now that it is becoming lower in cost and more efficient. Solar energy is easily the cleanest and most inexhaustible of any of the known energy sources. The many variations in energy prices have fueled interest in alternative fuels such as solar energy. Demand for solar energy has been increasing exponentially as heating, cooling and many other energy costs continue to skyrocket.

Solar air heating and solar water heating are two examples of solar thermal technologies which produce heat, but not electricity. Solar air heat is best suited for installation in new construction and existing houses. Solar panels for any type of heating should be placed on a south-facing pitched roof, free of shade. The angle should be between 20 and 50 degrees. They may also be mounted on an angled frame on the ground or on a flat roof. Solar air collectors (the devices that heat up the air using solar energy) can directly heat individual rooms. They also can potentially pre-heat the air passing into a heat recovery ventilator or the air of an air-source heat pump. Solar heating panels can be one of the most cost effective ways to reduce your utility bills. This will make a positive contribution towards a better environment. Solar air heating systems often use large bins filled with rocks that store heat (although this method is becoming rare due to problems associated with controlling moisture and mold growth in the rock).

Energy Policy Act has implemented a 30% tax credit for consumers who chose to install solar water heating systems. State and local government programs are now being put in place to encourage the use of solar energy. Cash incentives are available for those that integrate solar energy technology as an alternative energy source. The Department of Energy (DOE) is working to design even more cost-effective solar heating systems and to improve the longevity of the materials used in those systems. Other incentive programs now include offering homeowners tax credits for solar panel installations and for solar heating systems. With solar power you will save money, increase your property value, help protect the environment and help to create a more secure America by reducing our dependence on foreign energy fuel sources.

A great solar heating system will save energy, reduce utility costs, and produce clean energy.

What will be our next major source of energy?


The sun and the wind will both be our major source of energy in the future. The sun is always there and the turbines will be needed to supply energy to homes in the winter time. we will see only electric cars on the roads and the airline industry will have to figure out something cause planes do not fly on solar power.

Whats the best renewable energy source?


The beat renewable energy sources are those sources of energy which can be renewed easily and which is eco-friendly in nature.
Some of the best sources of renewable energy are:
1. Solar energy: The most efficient renewable energy source. The sun rays are absorbed by the solar cells on the solar panel and later it is used as electricity.
2. Wind energy: Used in turbines to make them run and generate electricity.
3. Water energy: Water has been used in hydroelectric plants to produce electricity.
4. Nuclear energy: Nuclear fission is the main source of energy today. The energy generated by this fission is used to produce electricity.

What's an example of a passive form of solar energy?


Passive solar energy can be used to keep buildings warm. Some buildings have large windows on the side of the building the sun hits. The sun's ray go through the windows and penetrate the heat-absorbent floors and walls. At night, this heat is released into the building.

Who first used solar energy?


Edmund Becquerel first hypothesized that light could be turned to energy in 1838, but the first solar powered motor was made by Auguste Mouchout in France a few decades later
