Renewable Energy vs Fossil Fuels

Renewable Energy vs Fossil Fuels

The global economy heavily depends on fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas, and coal. Nearly all our engines are driven by gas and most of our cooking is gas-powered. Unfortunately, these resources are fast getting depleted which has resulted in high oil and gas prices.

This has prompted a raging debate with conservationists campaigning for a shift to infinite energy sources such as bio fuels, hydrogen, solar, nuclear energy, wind, and geothermal power.

Question is – how easy would it be to shift from fossil fuels to infinite sources of energy? Is it even feasible?

If like many others you’re just joining the debate, you need to begin by attempting to understand how the two compare. Here’s what we know so far:

Renewable Energy Is Clean

Renewable energy producers such as solar and wind firms are in a position to produce constant electricity and process vital chemicals, heat, and fuel with minimal environmental impact. Clean power plants do not use up declining natural fuels.

On the other hand, fossil fuels have to be burned to turn into electricity. During this burning process, toxic gases are released into the air, causing health problems and air pollution, while also contributing to climate change. Even the mining of fossil fuels is detrimental to the environment as the resulting oil spills pose a health risk.

Renewable Energy Sources Can Be Replaced

Creation of renewable energy is done by harnessing and replenishing the abundant natural resources. This includes the sun, water, wind, and organic waste such as manure, leftover crops, and trees that can be processed into biogas.

Fossil fuels, meanwhile, are mainly plant remains that happened to decompose under water millions of years ago. They take millions of years to be produced, and once used, cannot be replaced.

Renewable Energy Is Cheaper

Given that fossil fuel reserves only exist in a few parts of the world, countries without these fossil reserves have to dig deep into their pockets to access fossil energy. Moreover, drilling and production of fossil fuels is extremely costly and unsustainable.

Renewable energy creation and development can help reduce dependence on foreign nations while creating jobs. Compared to the fossil fuel sector, renewable energy companies contribute more jobs. Pound for pound, renewable energy is also a lot cheaper than fossil fuels.

Fossil Fuel Is Portable

The truth is the fossil fuels are a lot easier to store and transport compared to renewable energy sources. Take natural gas for example. You can produce gas in one state and easily transport it to a different state. In fact, many countries trade fossil fuel products this way. Renewable energy sources, however, cannot be stored or transported. You can’t store the sun, right? Nor can you store or transport the wind. Moreover, it takes a lot more effort and space to tap renewable energy.

Conclusion

As you can see, each option has pros and cons. However, we can all agree that renewable energy triumphs because it’s cheaper, cleaner, and has a negligible impact on the environment.

How Do Biomass Boilers Work?

How Do Biomass Boilers Work

Biomass boilers are modern heating systems operating on biomass fuel as opposed to conventional gas or oil boilers. Biomass fuels are essentially organic materials produced in a renewable manner. The two main categories of biomass fuels are wood fuels and animal waste, though municipal solid waste (MSW) can also be used as biomass fuel.

The most advanced commercial biomass boilers are fully automatic, similar to their gas counterparts. They regulate fuel and air supply to the combustion chamber and for this reason are very efficient with minimal emissions.

Biomass Boilers Explained

The boilers work in a similar way to the conventional gas or oil boilers. Biomass materials are fed into a combustion chamber by hand, semi-automatically or automatically depending on the type of boiler, where they are burnt. The hot air and gas emitted passes through a heat exchanger, which heats the water used in your property’s central heating system. Excess heat is normally stored in a thermal tank.

Typically, large hoppers feed wood pallets or chips to the boiler. The space you have next to the boiler will determine how big or small your hopper can be. Many people prefer large hoppers because they reduce transportation needs leading to reduced fuel costs and refill frequency.

Boilers that use logs are more appropriate for individuals with access to wood supply but who may not have time to cut the logs into appropriate sizes. The disadvantage is that it takes more time to feed a boiler with the logs and subsequently clean out the massive amounts of ash.

Most modern biomass boilers will only burn the amount of fuel necessary to produce the required heat at that particular time. For instance, if the central heating system is already hot, it will only burn enough fuel for the system to top up the heat or will shut off and reignite when required.

Benefits of Biomass Boilers

Affordable fuel

Biomass fuel is significantly cheaper compared to gas or oil fuels. Whether its wood pellets, chips, or logs, you’ll always find that they cost much less than gas and oil.

Little intervention required

Most commercial biomass boilers are uniquely built with automated fuel feeders and self-cleaning heat exchangers. They also produce very little ash thus minimal intervention.

Renewable fuel

Carbon dioxide produced when biomass is burnt is the same as what plants absorb every day. Thus, sustainability is maintained provided new plants grow to replace those used as fuel. Additionally, carbon dioxide emission is significantly reduced when biomass boilers are used instead of a solid fired system.

Financial support

The government has openly come out in support of renewable energy technologies such as biomass boilers. Anyone who uses a biomass boiler on their property is eligible for certain financial incentives.

Summary

The great news is that setting up a biomass boiler isn’t as expensive as most people think. And, if set up properly, the system can last many years with minimal maintenance while earning you hundreds of dollars in energy savings every year.

How Toxic Are Solar Panels Really?

How Toxic Are Solar Panels Really?

Solar power is known as one of the greenest forms of renewable energy available in today’s world. The question still keeps cropping up, however….. How green are solar panels really? And is there any level of toxicity involved in the panels, the installation, and the production of solar panels?

These are all areas of concern that should be looked into in order to determine if solar panels are not only worth investing in. Is this technology really as green as the renewable energy sector claims it is?

Toxic Manufacturing Process

In order to produce solar paneling, some chemicals are required. This includes hydrofluoric acid and sodium hydroxide. Water and electricity are also used in the production process, and while these alone do not create toxins,  once they are combined with the aforementioned chemicals they create a substantial amount of greenhouse gases. This does not mean, however, that not all companies produce the same amount of greenhouse gases.

Companies’ Level of Toxicity

The Silicon Valley Toxic Coalition looks over several different variables when trying to determine how environmentally friendly companies are that produce this type of technology.

This includes factors like:

  • water use
  • recycling methods
  • emissions
  • chemical toxicity

Trina has the lowest emissions when it comes to producing solar technology. SunPower out of California comes in at a close second place with very low levels of toxicity during the manufacturing process.

Unfortunately, all of the information used to score the toxicity of a company comes directly from the companies themselves, so there’s no telling how accurate these rating actually are. In recent years, the Silicon Valley Toxic Coalition has indicated that solar panel manufacturers have reduced the amount of information shared with them.  It seems that nearly a quarter of all solar panel manufacturers withhold almost all of the information needed to properly assess them. This is especially true for companies that a manufacture generic solar panels.  This is also the why consumers are encouraged to research the products they intend to purchase.

 

Solar Industry Cover Up

There is no substantial cover-up regarding greenhouse gases and solar paneling. However, with the popularity of solar power increasing every year, there are many in the industry who do not want all this type of information to be public knowledge.  Luckily, the information is readily available, but some companies are diluting information regarding toxic waste and greenhouse gases in order to focus on the renewable energy element.

Environmental Standards Differ

While the cleanest solar panel manufacturer is based in China, environmental standards in China are not as high when compared to the United States and in Europe. The carbon footprint from Chinese manufacturers is often twice that of companies based in Europe.

Location can have a massive impact on how toxic the panels are.When looking at panels, it is important to take into consideration not only what company is manufacturing the products, but also where the company is based. 

The Verdict On Solar’s Toxicity

With all the challenges the solar industry has, it’s important to keep perspective the global picture. Once solar is installed, it generates electricity with zero emissions. Even though toxic compounds are used in the manufacturing process, the significance solar and its benefits for the planet is hard to ignore.  Coal-fired power plants alone are responsible for 1,999.6 million tons of carbon dioxide in the United States annually.

Solar’s safety record is equally hard to ignore. It’s not only safer for the environment when compared to other forms of energy like coal, natural gas, and nuclear fission, but it also offers less danger for workers in the trade.

Considering that solar is a relatively new form of renewable energy that is now experiencing a boom like never before, there remains alot of optimism. As the industry matures, solar companies will adopt stronger sustainability measures and continue to improve the viability of this renewable energy so that we can ensure a viable power source for future generations.

How to Use Menards Rebates to Save Money and Get Free Stuff

I love Menards, and despite my husband’s belief, my love of it is independent of it’s song (though I do love me a catchy jingle).  The song is true, though.  You can save big money at Menards!

Plenty of deal sites focus on the bargains and freebies you can get at stores like Walgreens, CVS, and grocery stores, but did you know you can also get great deals on a wide variety of items at Menards? Menards offers rebates on all types of items they sell in their stores—from tools (obvious) to appliances, to menards replacement windows, to beauty products like shampoo to décor, like picture frames, . All of these and more you can get at a serious discount (many even for free!) through the use of Menards rebates.

Getting Started

The easiest place to start is by glancing through the Menards circular that comes with the Sunday paper or by looking online at the weekly ad section of their webpage. Look for red textboxes stating “After $X Mail-In Rebate.” Many items will be free, and will be easily noticed because it will advertise “FREE” in red letters just above the textbox.

The ads tend to advertise deals that start that week.  However, most rebates last for several weeks to several months.  They just don’t advertise them every single week.  You can find more rebate items by wandering around the store (signs clearly mark rebate items), or you can check out one of two rebate centers.  The first one is on the website, and it lists all of the rebates available (at the time of writing this, there are currently 197 rebates available).  In the store, you can also check out the rebate center, which is usually located near customer service on the way out of the store, so you can pick up rebate slips (which can also be printed online) after you purchase items.  By looking through the rebate slips, you can see items that have rebates associated with them.

Item Limits

Each rebate item has a limit for how many you can buy.  From what I’ve seen, this usually ranges from 1-6 items, though I’m sure there are exceptions.  For example, the torpedo level pictured above has a limit of two.  That means you will be reimbursed up to $5 ($2.50 each).  You can buy more, but any additional purchases will not be reimbursed.

Rebate Receipts

At the bottom of your receipt, rebate receipts for each of the items you purchase will print, so if you purchase three items eligible for rebates, you will have three different rebate receipts that print on the bottom of your receipt.  Each rebate receipt is unique to the item you purchased.  You will need to keep these to send with your rebates.

Sending Your Rebates

You will need to fill out forms that you either get in the store or print from the website.  Each item will have its own form, so if you purchase picture frames and levels at the same time, you will have two forms to fill out.  Be sure to check each form for the date it must be sent in by.  Unlike many rebates, you don’t need to send in UPCs or anything else.  You just need to send the completed form and the rebate receipt specific to that item.  Most of the rebates go to a processing center in Wisconsin.  As long as the items are all going to the same location, you can put them in one envelope.  This will save postage.

Rebates Are Merchandise Checks

Menards rebates are merchandise checks, which means that you must use the rebate in the store; it’s not cash.  In this respect, the Menards rebates are similar to Walgreens’s Register Rewards or the Extra Care Bucks of CVS.  However, unlike their “rebates,” which print out immediately, these must be sent in, so you do have to wait a few weeks for processing to get your money.

Spending Rebate Checks

You will be issued a postcard-sized rebate check in the mail a few weeks after you send in your receipts.  You can spend it all at once, or they will indicate how much you have left on the check and return it to you to use later, like a gift card.  You can also use them to buy gift cards, but be aware that they only sell gift cards in standard amounts, like $10, $25, and so on.

Rolling Rebates

You can just spend the rebate on any stuff at the store you want.  That’s fine, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.  It’s like getting two things for the price of one, which is a great deal.  However, to maximize your savings, you can roll your rebates.  Rolling means you use the rebates from one (or several) item to then buy more items that have rebates.  This is especially profitable if the items are free after rebate.  For example, yesterday I bought two torpedo levels ($2.50 x 2 = $5), six picture frames ($3.50 x 6 = $21), and one cuddle-up blanket ($3), for a total of $29.  In a few weeks I will get a rebate check for $29, which I can then go spend on other items that will also be free after rebate.  If I buy $29 more dollars worth of stuff that is free after rebate, and I will get another rebate check for $29, and I can repeat the cycle, continuing to get free items.  I’m only out the initial amount I spent ($29), but I can get hundreds of dollars worth of items for that $29 by rolling rebates.  The main disadvantage here is the time it takes between buying an item and getting the rebate.

What to Do with All That Free Stuff

Many of the items we use ourselves. With other items, we keep them throughout the year to be given as gifts; we usually have quite a stockpile by Christmas! This makes cheap, affordable gifts, and they offer such variety throughout the year that you can find things for almost everyone. We also are able to donate things to charity. For example, Menards frequently offers rebates on a certain brand of shampoo and condition, which I don’t use. However, when it’s free after rebate, and I know I’ll be able to use the rebate for rolling or just buying things for home improvement projects around the house, I buy the limit of shampoo and donate it to the local homeless shelter. Tools and other items can go to Habitat for Humanity. This is a great way to make donations to charity while on a tight budget.

Waste Management in the Philippines

Garbage and continuous generation of waste is one of the major problems of the Philippine community.  There is plenty of garbage, in fact so much garbage that some agricultural lands are now converted into landfills.  Furthermore, due to inefficient waste management regulations or systems in the country, the spread of pollutions from waste generation has caused various environmental and social problems particularly in highly urbanized areas in the country.

As they say, for every action there is a consequence, and in this scenario the Philippine environment has suffered the most. Many of its wildlife species have been threatened with extinction due to widespread logging and pollution brought by improper waste disposal. Philippines is known to be one of the ten most biologically mega-diverse countries where about 1,100 land vertebrate species can be found including over 100 mammal species and 170 bird species not thought to exist elsewhere. But unfortunately, many of its endangered species are now going extinct due to human activities particularly inefficient waste management.

The good thing is, the breakthrough in waste management has been now introduced to the country through Spectrum Blue Steel Corporation (SBSC), an environmental company with an exclusive license to deploy biosphere process systems or biosphere technology in the Philippines. The concept of this revolutionary biosphere technology is, rather than having to dump the garbage, why not use it to generate energy or electricity?

Biosphere technology is now the new hope for efficient waste management in the country. This technology is a waste to energy system that applies gasification into its process to avoid harmful effects to the environment and human health. It destroys and converts waste materials into green energy in a high temperature and oxygen starved environment thereby limits atmospheric emissions. It addresses both energy and wastes problems. Great technology indeed!

This technology is a promising clean energy and waste management solution in one. If it is developed fully, it could significantly meet the country’s energy needs while mitigating environmental problems caused by waste generation and fossil fuel dependency.

Fossil fuels and other renewable energy

Out of the Standard-Choice Vitality Sources

Option vitality refers to power from a source other than the regular fossil gasoline source like oil, all-natural gas, and coal. Substitute power is not commonly made use of and is commonly environmentally sound. It is also frequently situations renewable vitality. Some alternate vitality sources are solar, the wind, biomass, wave and tidal power.
Populace challenge is not only primarily the issue about the number of people in the world today. People eat meals, clean h2o, wood, minerals, and electrical power each day. The escalating power intake is significant to the depletion of conventional strength sources as perfectly as raising pollution.
We are now reliant on fossil gasoline and other non-renewable power. This results in great damage to our natural environment and will also immensely affect long term generations. Most of the existing inhabitants depend on non-renewable strength resource these kinds of as oil, pure gasoline, fossil fuel and coal.
Fossil fuels are a non-renewable source of energy, so that means it could run out. Also, when fossil fuels are burnt, they create the fuel carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon dioxide is recognized as a greenhouse gas given that it traps warmth from the sunshine and preventing it from escaping out of the Earth’s atmosphere into the house. The number of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere is rising.

Different and renewable supply of energy is, as a result, a requirement. Renewable electrical power is derived from sources that are regenerative or regenerate right after usage. For this motive, renewable energy, as opposed to fossil fuels, do not produce as lots of greenhouse gasses.

Several countries are offering incentives to a non-public sector or particular initiatives to use renewable electricity by supplying tax incentives and subsidies. At this time, just 14 percent of the world’s electricity consumption comes from renewable power resources. But there is an excellent perspective for substitute strength. It could be big more than enough to go on several occasions the latest vitality use.

Various sources of renewable or also known as different strength are daylight, the wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat. Wind energy comes from wind ability that is generated from wind turbines. Wind electricity is non-polluting vitality source with small routine maintenance charge while the preliminary expense may be significant.
Solar electrical power occurs from the sun’s rays that hit the planet Earth. Photovoltaic electricity can be converted into warmth and energy. Photovoltaic power can be transformed into thermal or electrical energy generated from heat. It can be utilized to heat drinking water and warmth areas like inside greenhouses, residences, and other properties.

Biomass electricity arrives from crops and animal materials that are usable resource of electrical power like wooden from trees, waste from other plants, manure or animal wastes. Biomass power has quite a few rewards. It uses waste materials that are normally dumped and utilizes up methane gas (a greenhouse fuel). Fuels like ethanol can be created from biomass and works by using as an alternative to petrol.

In the meantime, hydropower would make use of the energy the h2o gains when it drops in elevation. That is why hydropower vegetation is around waterfalls or dams. Hydropower has been utilized given that the commerce of the electric age but sadly the price of this power has not still been formulated and maximized.

One more different vitality supply would be geothermal electrical power or power derived from the underwater heat the environment is emitting. Geothermal ability plants are unaffected by altering temperature problems. It is also price tag aggressive and assists the people’s reliance on fossil fuels to reduce.
These only demonstrate that we can choose alternate techniques on employing electrical power to lessen its damaging influence on our natural environment. Alternative energy resources present us a choice for a vivid and healthier foreseeable future. It could a thing be out of the common, but it can also be useful.

Photovoltaic Power – What is it for?

Photo voltaic House Power: What is it for?

Photovoltaic energy—this term primarily does not trigger a stirring in the intellect as the explanation that comes at hand is in truth way too easy. Every person knows what is meant by photovoltaic electricity, and that is, the electrical power that comes from the sun. In its most pure feeling, photovoltaic power, and other photovoltaic household equipment are even so ecosystem-friendly and not risky at all. But then you need not become one wonderful environmentalist to start with just before you will be equipped to appear across with whatsoever good profit photovoltaic house electrical power has.

Why is the house solar energy stated to be surroundings-helpful? What are its general positive aspects? Almost speaking, when photovoltaic home vitality is utilized, the electrical charges enormously go down as in comparison to the other type of property power available for all individuals. Why would you pay for these expensive bills when all you will need to do is to make use of solar home electrical power?
Another primary benefit of the sun dwelling power is the absence of the quite complicated and risky wiring. Photovoltaic energy lights in the back garden path or any other photovoltaic strength-run merchandise utilized in your dwelling are prepared to be put in significantly less the wiring to deal with. In actuality, these clear photovoltaic bulbs are outfitted with darkness sensors, so they want not be turned on to give off sweet and they want not be turned off as properly when they are no extended essential.

As a kind of uncomplicated rationalization, the mild photovoltaic bulbs will merely have to be procured, taken out of the boxes, installed, and then presto! You just have to situate them wherever you want them to be and hardly ever be concerned about them ever all over again.

A Checklist of the Benefits of Solar Home Strength

Why is the photovoltaic residence energy similarly advantageous? Why is it a lot more encouraged for use? Right here are some of its added benefits which are well worth the awareness to be graced by anybody:

Photovoltaic dwelling electricity is environmentally helpful. As outlined a while back, solar dwelling vitality will not hurt the environmental options. It is particularly cleanses and renewable as perfectly. A lot more so, it does not induce pollution just like what the rest of the traditional electrical equipment do.
Photovoltaic home energy methods need the minimum servicing. They are not fuel-run so no require investing in the refills.

Photovoltaic household strength helps make you save a ton of cash. The energy that is derived from the sunshine can be accessed for cost-free as you make use of photo voltaic lights, solar panels, and the likes. The federal authorities most of the time gives out monetary incentives. You do not get affected by the increase of the gasoline charges due to the fact you are utilizing solar home strength.

Creating use of the photovoltaic household vitality makes you fully impartial from the overseas and centralized power resources. Electrical power outages will not probably influence you in any manner.

Most of the solar electricity things are really effortless to set up hence lessening the complex function of the wiring units.

Some Popular Negatives of the Solar Residence Vitality

Of course, the shortcomings will not be taken aside. Here are some of the most frequent defects of the solar dwelling electricity:

The employment of a solar house strength can be costly at initial. But as time passes by, it gets to be light-weight to the pocket.

The toughness of the solar dwelling vitality will relatively depend on the locale of your house in relation with its struggling with to the solar. Also, the area of your household is another issue to take into account. You will require massive areas to install the photovoltaic panels.

The Numerous Solar Vitality Things

There are plenty of photo voltaic vitality units that you could opt to obtain. Involved are the photovoltaic flashlights, photovoltaic heaters, automobile ventilators, solar online video cameras, solar radios, solar pool purifier, photovoltaic mosquito inhibitor, solar lights, and solar fountain pumps.

What You Will Have To Do

Again in the earlier many years, photovoltaic electrical power equipped units had been very highly-priced that really several owners manufactured use of the solar house strength. But these times, small volumes of solar electrical power gadgets are put up for sale consequently generating it cost-effective for all. If you don’t have ample cash to fund these merchandise, you can always commence little.
