Fossil fuel is non-renewable energy, that means it will run out a day in future no matter how much it is under our earth’s crust. But nowadays we still heavily rely on fossil fuel as our major energy source. We use fossil fuel ( petrol, natural gas, coal ) to generate energy, for transportation and making many daily-use product ( plastic bag, nylon, PVC and etc. ). Can you imagine what will happen when the fossil fuel is exhausted?
Garbage is inexhaustible it seems and a growing concern for municipalities. I grew up on Long Island and back in the forties they use to dump it in a big pile and light a match to it. The resultant stink was quite memorable. Growth of Nassau and Suffolk counties of course led to some deep thinking. There are old sand mines they started to dump in but they stunk too. Several towns tried several types of incinerators which was an improvement lost their licenses due to emissions. Finally they built 2 large plants that used technology developed to destroy chemical weapons to burn the trash and use the heat to make steam to run generators. They charge to unload the trash then turn around and sell the power.
Undertaking this process with solar power has always been iffy at best. There has been no real efficient means for doing it. That is now changing and molten salt batteries are a big part of the change. To understand how they work, we first have to understand what they are and how they are used.
There is just no question that our destiny will include a majority of renewable energy. We could include here a big, long list of renewable and power supplier technologies that we can utilize. But the important thing to remember is that all of us are going to have to find our way with products that suit us and our lifestyle. The desert does not have the same needs and resources as the beach. Or the deep south with its great heat. The north with its terribly severe winters. Not a great deal of similarity between the needs of those places.
hydropower takes energy from flowing water and captures it, then turning it into electricity. hydropower is very complex and requires a great technology in order to successfully accumulate energy from water.
You will be required to outlay money if you are going to create electricity on a do it yourself basis. Solar panels or wind turbines will be your choice of materials. Once you have paid for this, you literally have free power forever. This is for as long as the wind blows and the sun shines. Not only will you save money, you will also reduce your carbon footprint.
When you decide to use alternative energy you accomplish more than only saving money you’re also helping to create a better world. The big reason not to use alternative energy is the price tag. The devices to convert the ‘free’ energy source are not cheap. You need to realize that you’re investing in your home. But after good calculations you will realize that you’ll be saving more than you’ll spend. Don’t forget to apply for tax credits or other benefits for investing in alternative energy.
