How renewable energy works
Over the last decade, renewable energy sources have been a hot topic of discussion. From solar to wind, renewable energy has really taken off. While you probably are aware of where the energy is coming from, have you ever wondered how these solar systems really work?
As the most common, and well-known type of renewable energy, solar power works by using the energy produced by the sun, and converting it into usable energy through a solar panel. These panels are usually installed at the highest point of the building (the roof), in order to catch the largest amount of natural and unpolluted sunlight. The energy collected is measured in standard-net meters, and property owners can use the stored energy however they see fit.
Hybrid power is a combination of what is used to produce the power and what is used to store it. Its definition is not based on the energy usage “method’, like when talking about hybrid vehicles. Hybrid power uses both power and energy-storage systems, allowing you to reduce your carbon footprint and decrease your monthly utility bill.
Wind energy is energy that is fueled by the wind, in a natural, clean, and safe manner. Wind power is known for reducing the amount of pollution, generating equally as much, if not more, power to fuel plant production and operations. Using mechanical power to create electricity, wind turbines convert kinetic energy into usable energy without using any of the power to run itself. Wind energy is one of the most affordable ways to generate a large amount of energy at one time, which is what makes it so popular among power plants and large corporations.
