The Solar Solution

The Solar Solution

There are many ways for us to combat Global Climate change and the solution starts with each of us.  Simple solutions such as, remembering and training ourselves and children to turn off lights and appliances not in use and changing over light bulbs to CFLs and LEDs.  both are great options!
 
To take the solution a step further, each of us have the ability to generate our own energy.  Solar PV systems have become much more mainstream, and it's not just a fad.  The impact and savings are REAL!
 
The trick is to offset our consumption and understand it a little better.  To help understand consider a standard toaster rated at 1000watts.  If you run that toaster for 1 hr you consumed 1kwh and you are then billed for that kwh.  If you only run the toaster once a day for 2 minutes it would take you 30 days (roughly 1 month) to reach that 1kwh.

You pay for that kwh and it must be generated from somewhere, somehow.  Typically that power is generated from combinations of hydro, coal fire, nuclear and small percentage of renewables.  for the most part these are some of the main things causing global climate change and destroying wonderful natural environments!  Why not generate clean energy for yourself, make a statement and be rewarded for it?
 
Even a small 1kw rated solar PV system makes a difference.  Consider the toaster example.  Typical toaster will use 1kwh of energy per month as above.  A 1kw solar PV system, properly positioned will generate between 5-6kwh's on a sunny day in Toronto, Ontario.  Therefore in that one day of solar production, your system can produce enough energy to run the toaster for approximately 6 months.  Once you understand this principal you can begin to understand benefits to you. 
 

 
However also consider the benefits of what you are doing!  A 1kw solar PV system will offset 1 tonne of Co2 emissions each year.  Not only do you save money year over year, you are price protected from energy hikes but you also make a great direct impact toward protecting our environment!  You simply can't lose!   
 
I won't go into the scares of Global Climate change.  I am certain we all know them.  Instead consider solutions.  Solar energy is everywhere and we can do some great things. 
 
I've been designing and running solar projects for many years now and I can tell everyone not only does it work and is it worth it, but costs have come down.
