Reduce Energy Consumption

2021 World Energy Efficiency Day

Its Energy Efficiency Day ⚡️💡

The aim is to make people aware of the need to reduce energy consumption by reasonable and sustainable use of energy!

Reducing energy use in your home saves you money, increases our energy security, and reduces the pollution that is emitted from non-renewable sources of energy. If you are planning to install a small renewable energy system to make your own electricity, such as a solar energy system, reducing your electricity loads is the first step because it allows you to purchase a smaller and less expensive system.

First look at your utility bill. If you use more, even greater savings may be possible.  There are many ways you can reduce electricity use in your home:

  • Appliances and electronics — Purchase energy-efficient products and operate them efficiently.
  • Lighting — Purchase energy-efficient products, operate them efficiently, and incorporate more day lighting into your home will also help in conserving energy during the day.
  • Electric space heating and cooling — Purchase energy-efficient electric systems and operate them efficiently. Incorporate passive solar design concepts into your home, which include using energy-efficient appliances. Properly insulate and air seal your home. Select an energy-efficient heating system that doesn’t use more electricity.
  • Electric water pump — Purchase an energy efficient water pump and operate it efficiently.
  • Reduce your “always-on” appliances. If your home has a smart meter and you can see your hourly consumption, then examine your consumption at 3AM.  It should be significantly less than your use at 7pm.  If it isn’t then you might have “vampire loads.”. Look for electronics that you don’t use always or can switch off, or perhaps get rid of that extra refrigerator etc

To improve the overall energy efficiency of your home:

A home energy assessment, also known as a home energy audit, can help you understand the whole picture of your home’s energy use, comfort, and safety. An assessment can help you determine how much energy your home uses, where your home is inefficient, and which problem areas and fixes you should prioritize to save energy and improve the comfort of your home.  A home energy assessment should be your first step before making energy-saving home improvements, as well as before adding a renewable energy system to your home.

THE BENEFITS OF SWITCHING TO SOLAR POWER

IMPORTANCE OF ADOPTING TO SOLAR POWER

Importance Of Adopting To Solar Power

Energy is required to facilitate most of the activities that people do on a day to day basis. There are various forms of energy that have been developed for use such as hydroelectricity, geothermal power, and solar power, among others. Solar energy provides the best energy source when it comes to conserving the environment and reducing acquisition costs. The energy is gotten from the sun’s radiation and can be converted to heat or electricity. This energy source is therefore freely available and can be harnessed to ensure continued availability for domestic and commercial use.

As our lives become increasingly dependent on electricity to keep our needs, it seems that we must be careful how we get a profitable renewable. While other forms of “green energy” are only practical on a commercial level, solar panels are easy to install-power for residential consumers. Sunlight is a natural source of clean energy that is abundant worldwide so there is little reason not to enjoy. Simply switching to solar panels for 25 percent of its electricity, emissions overall average consumers will be reduced by more than 1.5 tons, helping to conserve energy for future generations, while saving thousands of money for your homes in the long term. While this may seem like an expensive investment installation of solar energy systems, the average life of the solar system is more than 25 years, during which you are less dependent on a grid.

Discussed below are the merits that are associated with using solar power:

Environment Friendly

Solar energy has the least negative environmental effect in comparison to the other energy sources. It neither pollutes any water body nor does it emit greenhouse gases to the environment. It also requires little maintenance aside from solar panels; as compared to other energy sources such as nuclear power plants which require approximately twenty times as much water. Moreover, the production of solar energy does not lead to any noise pollution which means it is healthy to install them near residences. Therefore, getting a solar panel from a commercial solar company like us that assemblies ours locally; stands to provide a lot of benefits for both the solar panel user and the surrounding.

Cost-effectiveness

Solar power ensures that you generate your utility which reduces your consumption from the utility supplier. This eventually translates into cost-savings in terms of capital that would have been otherwise spent on energy provision.

The ubiquity of solar energy

Solar power is easily and naturally available, as long as there is some sunshine. This is particularly very useful especially for remote areas that do not have any access to another source of energy. Even for those who do have access to other sources of energy such as hydro-electric power or geothermal energy, they can still install solar panels and use them as a back-up in case of any outages or shortages. The solar energy can then be upgraded to be used as the main source of energy over time to reduce energy-related costs.

Conserves energy

Energy sources such as hydro-electric power is usually prone to energy loss during distribution. There usually are long distances between supply points and production plants which result in over 3% energy loss in the process. These energy losses can greatly influence installation performance, especially in highly populated areas.

Bottom Line

Solar power is rapidly gaining popularity and rightly so. Solar energy is easy to produce and does not harm the environment, among other benefits as discussed above. For this reason, you should adopt solar power today, either as your main source of energy or as a back-up power plan and the long-term savings from the solar panel to move not only help to maintain a healthy environment for future generations, but also economically benefit the end user.
