Renewable Energy for the Home…
Renewable energy is power generation from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat – in other words, energy sources which are renewable or naturally replenished. Other common terms in use are Alternative Energy or Green Power.
Wind power is growing at the rate of 30% annually and is widely used in Europe, Asia, and the United States. At the end of 2009, global photovoltaic (Solar Power, or PV) installations surpassed 21 GW and large-scale PV power stations are popular in Germany and Spain.
While many renewable energy projects are large-scale, renewable technologies are also suited to rural and remote areas. Currently, an estimated 3 million households globally get power from small solar panel / PV systems.
Climate change concerns, coupled with rising oil prices, peak oil, and increasing awareness by governments are all driving increasing renewable power adoption and more and more domestic solutions are becoming available to consumers.
