Solar Power System in the Home

With the so many alternatives for fossil fuel developing in recent years, solar energy has become very popular especially for use in homes. It is important to know how solar power systems work and possibly how to set them up.2KW-On-Grid-Home-Solar-Power-System

There are so many companies that now produce solar panels, and even at reduced prices. Having these solar energy products in your home will really save a lot of money for you, because the source of energy keeps renewing itself as it is coming from the sun.

It is so convenient because once you set up the solar energy system; it continues to generate electricity without the monthly costs associated with the regular source of power.

This is the major reason most people today are looking at ways of using solar energy in their homes; and in the near future, it is going to increase significantly. So it makes sense to start using it as soon as possible, we hope that very soon some homes could become completely independent of the power companies.

Whether these power companies accept this truth or not, is yet to be clear. But the earlier they realize that solar energy will soon become the main source of electricity in homes, the better for them and their business viability.

You can easily find companies selling solar products online. Ask questions and find out the best products that suits your home the most. You don’t have to try replacing the normal source of power all at once; it has to be a gradual process.

Make sure you make appropriate considerations before you install the solar system; however, we all know it is a much better alternative to fossil power in the long run.

Israel to Build University that Will Work on Alternative Energy

The Israeli city of Ashdod, on the west coast and south of Tel Aviv, will soon built a campus that will run on alternative energy. It will be the first of its kind in Israel.

The complex will occupy 14 hectares and generate half of the energy consumed by solar panels and sources of geothermal energy, according to Israeli newspaper, Haaretz.

The campus will be located at the entrance of the city of Ashdod and host an Engineering Institute, a school of nursing and other Environmental Studies.

Construction will start within a year and will cost 300 million shekels (about $79 million or 60 million euros).

The chosen design is to preserve the landscape. Some of the buildings will be erected on pillars and the campus will have a lookout to enjoy views of the dunes that surround the place.
