Solar Energy – The Future is Now Learn how to make your own renewable energy. Don’t pay the electricity company, make the electricity company pay you. Get started for under 0 visit for more info 🙂 Blogging effectively using natural resources (sunlight & wind) The future of energy is Solar and Wind. Here is a short video of some solar energy farms around the world. Enjoy Solar Energy is energy from the Sun. This energy drives the climate and weather and supports virtually all life on Earth. Heat and light from the sun, along with solar-based resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass, account for most of the available flow of renewable energy. Solar energy technologies harness the sun’s energy for practical ends. These technologies date from the time of the early Greeks, Native Americans and Chinese, who warmed their buildings by orienting them toward the sun. Modern solar technologies provide heating, lighting, electricity and even flight. Solar power is used synonymously with solar energy or more specifically to refer to the conversion of sunlight into electricity. This can be done either through the photovoltaic effect or by heating a transfer fluid to produce steam to run a generator. Solar photovoltaics provide 0.04% of the world’s energy usage. There are many technologies for harnessing solar energy. Applications span through the residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural and transportation sectors. Solar energy can be used to produce food

  1. Solar energy has come a long way now, but i still see some problems with solar energy that, well, cannot be solved, and one of this problems is dependebility, what happens when you dont have direct sunlight for 3 or more days straight, where are you going the get the energy if solar is thi only thing you are depending on, also the storage for this energy, battey technology isnt to the task just yet.

  2. I invented a breakthrough energy source which violates the law of energy conservation. I have a PROOF that there are electrodynamic phenomena which violate the law of energy conservation. I am looking for $30 000 for a prototype and for $3M for patents. Making a 15 kW generator will cost $1200 in mass production, value of the energy produced yearly about $10 000.

    Great video. The biggest advantage of taping the sun’s energy for the generation of electricity is that it greatly reduces our dependence on fossil fuels. It is estimated that the world’s total energy consumption will increase by 30% in the following decade and hence developed nations are taking serious steps to enable the switch from conventional energy sources to renewable energy sources. Transformer company, Pacific Crest Transformers has more on the role of solar energy on their website

  4. C’mon man Hugo Chavez needs more to buy weapons of mass destruction from the russians before you stop buying oil from him, show some consideration for this great leader of the world poor!

    I REALLY REALLY hate Wasting time in Clicking and then getting a Completely Useless piece of crap misscalled Video as a result.

  6. Great video…I converted my home to a net-zero solar powered home that uses no oil or gas…I made a video about it called, “Preparing for Peak Oil”….

  7. I invented a breakthrough source of energy that contradicts the law of conservation of energy. I have a PROOF that there are electrodynamic phenomena that contradict the law of conservation of energy. I am looking for $6M for a prototype and patents.

  8. decentralization = good for freedom, not commie (commie=centralization)
    i’d rather have local wind=solar & own land rather than depend on some distant power station monopoly

  9. Solar Panels are better than nuclear, even though they are more costly to manufacture per kilowatt, cause more pollution from the materials that go into construction, generate barely any electricity, depend on unpredictable clear skies, and ruin landscapes.

  10. im starting a solar business. this is the best time to do this. i can only hope that gas prices and energy prices go up. lol

    i dont think global warming will do it alone.

  11. solar can be placed in the deserts. deserts are heaven for solar power. they also dont have risk of killing off animals. solar is definitely better then wind. and wind is better then oil, coal, natual gas which are very finite and lots of polution.

  12. I think solar power is better than wind power; wind can have health affects and is bad for migrating birds. If the money that has gone into oil and coal was used for innovations with solar, we would have a different world.
    I also think that energy shouldn’t be commodified. That sounds commie, but it would get the greed factor out of the industry.
    Just an opinion…

  13. the best alternative energy is small home renewable energy in other words energy created buy renewable sources in our own home

  14. pacificcresttrans

    Solar energy has the capacity to meet 15% of US electricity by 2020. People are adopting alternate energy methods like solar and wind power for the electricity supply. As energy demands increase, markets for these sources will only grow. Pacific Crest Transformers has articles on the renewable energy sector in the United States.
