As we feel the harmful effects of fossil fuels and mainly other pollutants of our past and present, we are now forced to understand the consequences and go for selecting other smarter choice of energy Choices are available to power our homes, businesses and other needs with renewable resources such as solar energy.
Solar power technologies provide electrical generation by means of heat engines or photovoltaic. In short the sun's rays are turned into clean, efficient energy that can be easily used. We can use solar energy for everything under the sun literally.
You can light your home, heat your home, and provide other ventilation needs through solar energy. You can grow better crops through solar energy greenhouses. It is quite possible to heat water for your home using a solar water heater. There is a never ending list of options.
You can learn more about solar energy through solar energy associations. Many organizations exist, ranging from state groups all the way to the American Solar Energy Society. (ASES), which is a non-profit organization. They are dedicated to increasing the use of solar energy, energy efficiency and other sustainable (renewable resources) technologies in the United States.
Another such association is the SEIA. The Solar Energy Industries Association promotes research and development of solar energy. They also along with the ASES believe in solar education and outreach.
The public can be educated as to the benefits of solar power in their own lives, through advocacy and outreach by such organizations. By doing just this we are becoming a part of the renewable resource revolution and providing hope for a healthier planet and successful future.
