Our dependency on foreign countries for the supply of these fuels, as we import the majority of them, is something that the government is desperate to change. Looking at the Alternative Solar Energy has finally become the answer to this dilemma.
Collecting the power source from the sun in the form of solar energy is rapidly becoming a reality. Fields of Solar Panels are being erected to produce electricity that will soon be supplying whole cities. A Stirling 500MW Solar Power Plant has been constructed in the desert outside San Diego large enough to do just that. Hopefully, it will not stop here.
The truth is, is that we can no longer afford as a planet to be pouring Co2 into our atmosphere at the rate that we have been for the last 50 years and unless we look seriously at Alternative Solar Energy for at least the supply of our electricity, then we may not have such a wonderful planet to enjoy.
More and more companies are converting to the source of solar energy for their supply, Google has their roofs covered in solar panels supplying approx. 30% of their total usage of electricity (the equivalent to 1000 homes). Millions of people all over the world have placed home solar panels on their roofs, all collecting that renewable source of energy from the Sun.
The benefits from harnessing the Solar Energy have become more apparent the last few years with the governments giving all kinds of incentives, the more they can encourage people to consider and act upon this alternative solar energy the better it is for them, with the agreement they have made to cut down on the Co2 levels in our atmosphere.
Even in many cases electricity companies are paying people that have set up a home solar panel system whereby the excess power they are producing goes back into the grid. Solar Power is still the cleanest way by which we can produce electricity, the conventional ways by burning gas, coal and oil will soon become history and our Planet will thank us. Air will be cleaner, our climate will stabilize and just as important our children will say thank you for taking a step in the right direction.
