Many households are considering of converting their home energy to be solar powered for the purpose of cutting down their electricity bills while saving our planet with this environmental friendly power source. But, not many are taking their action to make the real conversion to a solar-powered home because they are still doubt on the advantages of solar power that they can really get after the conversion while they do worry about the potential problems that may encountered after they make the conversion. Let briefly go through the advantages versus the disadvantages of solar power, so that you are cleared before you make your decision on whether to use solar-powered energy at home.

Recent developments in solar and algae biofuel lead me to believe that the sunny San Joaquin Valley could indeed become a leader in the emerging clean energy industry.

My co-worker Sandy Nax has called the Valley a Petri dish for alternative energy development because it has so many of the necessary attributes: available land, scorching sun and/or clear days a majority of the year, wind in the mountains and scads of agricultural resources for biofuel or biogas.

Green energy from machine with ocean waves

Posted March 8, 2016 By fondaco

British scientists are developing the next seabed to the Atlantic coast of the Orkney Islands (UK), the installation of a new large machine called Oyster, designed to harness energy from ocean waves and converting it into “green” electricity . In autumn 2009, the first tests will be done to test whether this technology can be a commercial source of renewable energy, and if you can use in coastal areas around the world.

Unlike many other mechanisms of harnessing the energy of waves, Oyster uses hydraulic technology to transfer wave power to shore, where it is transformed into electricity. According Ronan Doherty, technical director of the team that developed the prototype of Oyster, a key aspect of its design is an oscillator of 18 meters wide, which uses tanks waves and based on research conducted at Queen’s University of Belfast under the direction of Trevor Whittaker.

Environmental Protection: Lessons From Dalai Lama

Posted November 19, 2015 By fondaco

The destruction of our environment is just as devastating as today’s worldwide poverty. Effects of this ecological disaster are tragic floods in various places particularly in highly urbanized areas and extinction of our wildlife. The environment that serves as habitat is gradually ruined due to continuous industrialization, inefficient garbage disposal, conversion of forests to agricultural landmarks, and oil and coal exploitation. But, take a closer look of this situation, all the causes of environment deterioration are merely for human consumption. Sadly, for many years now many people still don’t realize this reality. We need to uphold environmental protection in order to have a cleaner and greener planet not only for us but particularly for our future generations.

According to 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, it is not difficult to forgive the destruction in the past, which resulted from ignorance. He said, “Today, however we have access to more information, and it is essential that we re-examine ethically what we have inherited, what we are responsible for, and what we will pass on to coming generations”. Everything that he said is quite true. Indeed, it is our responsibility to take good care of our environment, its forests, and wildlife especially now that we have all the resources.


Algae retains nosing all around clean up energy media.

It won’t hold the warm cache regarding solar power or exotic characteristics of breeze, tidal as well as geothermal power. Nevertheless the rapidity of plankton fuel’s noted improvements take time and effort not to consider. At the very least with this former press reporter.

During my yard with the University involving Florida, Merced, researchers acquired a new allow to be able to “perform a thorough life cycle evaluation research regarding plankton biofuels.Inches The bucks, any modest $142,747, is part of about $3.Five thousand issued by the actual Florida Power Commission’s public Attention Vitality Investigation plan.

Advantage and Disadvantage of Non-Renewable Energy

Posted September 11, 2015 By fondaco

Human beings need energy and several that to run the planet.
Every single because the commercial wave, we now have needed a lot more vitality each year to hold the production facilities, cars, air conditioning units, along with home kitchen appliances jogging. Because big nations such as The far east carry on and expand commercial generation in document prices, the worldwide requirement for energy has not been greater.

Usually, professional international locations get relied on non-renewable fuels just like essential oil, coal and also gas main in order to power our establishments. Classic fuels are generally among this kind of vitality resources.

Algae biofuel Might Be the Answer

Posted April 21, 2015 By fondaco

Algae biofuel is all the rage, and this may sound counterintuitive, but algae grows extremely fast under the right conditions and can be turned into biofuel without too much problem. Amazingly enough, the US military is looking into this just in case we have a war and all of our oil and fuel supplies are shut off. For instance a war with Iran or in the Middle East where most of the oil comes from would cause a huge supply problem, and our military would not be able to fly its planes, sail it ships, or its drive vehicles.

Eco Friendly Technology

Posted January 20, 2015 By fondaco

The environmental and financial cost of incandescent lighting leads many companies to replace it with other lighting, even incandescent exit signs with ones that use less energy, a move that reduces annual electric cost while reducing carbon pollution. Yet, there aren’t just one or two eco friendly exit signs on the market. In fact, at least four types of exit signs are commonly promoted as replacements for incandescent ones in the name of cost savings and lower carbon pollution: compact fluorescent, LED, Tritium, and photoluminescent. So, which one is really the best for the environment and your annual utility bill? Let’s compare them and find out.

Compact Fluorescent

Compact fluorescent models are an improvement over incandescent ones, consuming 21 Watts for a 10-year electrical cost of $184, compared to 40 Watts and $350 for incandescent. Like incandescent signs, compact fluorescent ones require maintenance on lamps, batteries, and wiring.
