Renewable energy sources, and off the grid energy production for the home, have become big business. There are a massive amount of companies offering alternative solutions to your energy needs. Some, like Tesla, have the vision to offer solutions that may even enable you to drop off the grid entirely, generating your whole requirement of energy through sustainable and renewable means.
Not Just For the Home:
It’s not just homes all over the world that are making the move to renewable energy production. Many businesses are also recognizing the benefits that go hand in hand with having an energy production method, that comes from sustainable sources.
Not only does this change make a company look good in the public perception, but the cost savings in energy costs can’t be ignored either. To be socially conscious of your carbon footprint, and to make positive efforts to reduce that footprint, via renewable energy generation, makes for great public relations, and gives the company a great boost in the eyes of customers and clients.
Solar Energy Production:
Solar energy production has always been one of the more popular methods for home owners, when it comes to producing your own energy at home. Because solar panels are relatively inexpensive, and can be easily hidden away if installed on the roof, they have become the top choice in homes around the world. Created from aluminum and fabricated through laser micro machining and other processes, solar panels are a great option for homes wishing to increase the productivity and life of machines requiring hot water, like washing machines and dishwashers, while actually reducing the cost o heating that same water.
Companies like Tesla are looking to bring renewable energy to the masses. You may have heard of this company due to their electric car, or maybe even their Space X project. However, it may be their Powerwall product that makes them household names in the near future. Looking like a kitchen appliance, with all the good looks of a high end mobile phone, the Powerwall has the potential to collect enough energy to power your home throughout the evening, while charging via solar panels during the day.
Not Just For Solar:
You don’t necessarily need to use solar panels to charge up your Powerwall either. You can use this device as a tool for collecting energy off the grid, at a time when power consumption costs are low (as during the day). You can then use this power at night, to make substantial savings to your power bills. Or it’s even possible to have a “blend” of off and on grid power to use from your Powerwall, whenever suits you.
Renewable energy is something definitely worth looking into. With many Governments introducing Carbon Taxes to traditional fossil fuels, there can be no better time to get into the green energy scene. You may find that your local Government may offer financial assistance by way of grants, to help you get into renewable energy production for your home.
