Solar Power - Free energy from natural resources

Renewable energy:-

What is renewable energy? Renewable energy is energy obtained from totally natural resources i.e the sun, wind and sea although you can argue quite rightly that there are more oppotunities than these to farm energy.

The Government has a long term aim to reduce C02 emissions by 60% by 2050. 10% of the electricity supply must be from renewable energy by 2010, so it is quite urgent for us all to explore the oppotunites we have at home for making use of what are readily available natural resources to us all. Take a quick look out of your window at home and you will experience sun or wind or rain - this is renewable energy, and it is your starting point in the great solar challenge.

If you have a good budget then there are plenty of professional companies who can fit a system to your property, either *on grid or *off grid. On the other hand you may have a smallish budget and wish to supplement your energy needs with a just few panels to start with. Whichever way you go you will find a good understanding of all the opportunities available on this website and the links found within it's pages.

Explanation of terms:

*On Grid means you have a system that produces enough power to be connected to the mains electricity and are able to sell your overflow power to an electricity company. *Off grid is a system not connected to the mains for that purpose.

Global Warming - it's why we are making changes to our way of life!
