Solar energy is the radiant energy emitted from the sun, which is harnessed by using various technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaic cells, and others. It is an efficient form of unconventional energy and a convenient renewables solution toward growing greenhouse emissions and global warming. Having been recognized as a “mainstream” energy source, renewable energy is now rapidly becoming a preferred one.

ADVANTAGES OF RENEWABLE RESOURCES AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Article | March 19, 2020

This article explores the benefits of renewable energy classified into a variety of types that includes solar energy solutions, hydroelectric, wind, geothermal, and biomass. Mostly, Wind Turbines and Solar Panels are essential to every area as it increases the health value of a community. Promoting health benefits is highly recognized as it can boost a possibility that can turn around the capability of the non-renewable as it will be more efficient and environmental. However, some things could lead to advrerse outcomes, such as losing revenue coming from known industries, but on the contrary, lots of positive impacts that will generate significant improvement. The following indicates the advantages and how it is promoting energy efficiency in society.

Solar Greenhouses Generate Electricity & Grow Crops At The Same Time…

Article | March 9, 2020

The first crops of tomatoes and cucumbers grown inside electricity-generating solar greenhouses were as healthy as those raised in conventional greenhouses, signaling that “smart” greenhouses hold great promise for dual-use farming and renewable electricity production. “We have demonstrated that ‘smart greenhouses’ can capture solar energy for electricity without reducing plant growth, which is pretty exciting,” said Michael Loik, professor of environmental studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and lead author on a paper that appears in the current issue of the American Geophysical Union’s journal Earth’s Future.

Solar Panel Direction, Orientation and Tilt Factors

Article | May 25, 2021

For anyone who has owned solar panels in the past, or even many considering solar power installation in the near future, it’s generally understood that direction is important in this field. Specifically, the ability of solar panels to point south, where they will receive the maximum possible sunlight and therefore create the maximum amount of energy, is vital for many solar panel installations – but it’s important to realize that the simple direction of the panels is not the only important variable here. At Intermountain Wind & Solar, we’re happy to offer both commercial and residential solar panel installation services, including the utilization of the Tesla Powerwall battery backup. We assist our clients with every part of solar panel installation, including important directional and related themes that will play a role in how much sunlight your panels are able to soak up. Today we’ll focus on some of the important variables here, including why south-facing panels are the optimal approach plus several other basic factors to keep in mind when it comes to maximizing panel positioning and direction.

What the Renewables Industry Wants From the Next Stimulus Bill

Article | April 1, 2020

The U.S. renewables industry was left out of the $2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill passed last week, but the battle is far from over. Congress is already considering further legislation to rescue the economy from the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic, and renewable energy groups are ready to bring their proposals back to the table. As with the last stimulus bill, the industry's plans center on securing changes to two federal policies: the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for solar power and the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for wind power. Renewables groups have a powerful claim to make as they push for those changes: Unlike many of the industries seeking hundreds of billions of dollars in collective aid, the desired tweaks to the renewable tax credits would not add significantly to the federal government's costs.
