How Green Is Your Home?

When it comes to energy conservation there are many avenues you can take to cut back on energy consumption and also save you some extra money. We have only one planet so we better take care of it by being more conservative with our energy resources.

A single hydropower dam can produce a lot of electricity, but a single wind turbine cannot. Why? Well, the water rushing through a dam is condensed under the weight of itself. When it is released into the generator shutes, it also runs at a near vertical angle to maximize the speed of the water and generator cranking output. With wind, both of these factors are non-existent. One cannot really harness the wind to really power up a wind turbine. Instead, one has to install dozens and even hundreds of turbines to generate significant amounts of electricity. As you might imagine, this can cause problems.

Green energy has proven, centuries before the extensive use of fossil products, that it can supply the world’s need for energy. Solar power alone can have as much power as all other sources combined. This simple truth would offer anyone’s doubt a reversing of look at the situation.

That’s pretty straightforward math. The challenge is harnessing that energy, storing it for use during evening hours and creating an energy grid able to adapt to the ebbs and flows of a renewable energy reality.

The fly-fishing themed film, “A River Runs Through It” was filmed in 1992. The story takes place in Missoula, Montana, and the bulk of the filming occurred on the Gallatin and Madison rivers, near Bozeman.

In order to do more than just barely survive, first we have to simplify our lives. We must learn to need and want less. We can learn to get our enjoyment and entertainment from lower cost or free sustainable sources. We live in a time of unbelievable over consumption of all kinds of goods, including expensive food from all over the world. We will need to rely on local products and local food sources. Part of the change that will be coming has to do with the transportation of goods across the world. We will see that slow way down and goods from far away will be extremely expensive. At least until new hydropower sources are implemented that change the cost and environmental damage from worldwide transportation of goods.

The holiday season is coming; you should consider these toys as gifts. Remember, there is a meaningful message behind these green toys – you give your next generation a greener future.

If companies, especially the energy sector, would make use of this green power, we can ultimately say goodbye from the bonds of smoke and pollution. As you see, this is just a bonus from nature’s power.
