Solar Energy or Oil Energy?

Between solar energy and oil energy, it seems that oil is still dominant. However, the simple fact that it is something a person has to pay for each time could lead to think about an alternative energy source.
Fossile source of energy have mainly been the ones employed during the industrial revolution. In fact, it is only in the fifties that solar cells were invented. Nonetheless, nowadays ways around fossil source of energy have become more accessible.

Due to the fact that we are not used to energy coming from the sun, some people could find it inadequate to make a comparison between solar energy and fossil sources of energy. However, compared to oil, solar energy is free. In fact, to have access to sun rays we normally do not have to pay anyone. Moreover, in terms of pollution, getting electricity from the sun rays does not lead to greenhouse gases.
Despite the advantages of solar energy, oil has also its benefits. Effectively, the technology developed around thos source of energy has been such that it is a lot more convenient to use. What do I mean by that? Actually, when a person buys a car, it is very likely that this car will run on gas. Morover, if repairs need to be made, mechanics might be more familiar with car that run on gas than one using solar energy. These are just some examples to attempt to show that oil is not completely bad. Consequently, an important advantage oil has over solar energy is that it has been used for a long time. Thus, it seems simpler to be utilizing oil than solar energy.
At this point, oil appears to still be the dominant source of energy. Nonetheless, the non pollutant nature of solar energy could make it a preferred source. Finally, if improvements in the field of solar energy permit to power large plants without more concerns than powering an oil based plant, this could also constitute a benefit of using solar energy.

  • You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    • I am a international suetdnt, and this is the second draft for my final essay in English class.It’s a compare/contrast essay, please fix my grammar errors, word choice, verb tense and enhance the conclusion paragraph. Thank you! Green Roofs or Solar Roofs ? You want to contribute to our earth but have no idea? Everyone knows Global warming and unban heat island effect are making inroads into the places where you and your family live. We all know that is a serious issue, and also have positive attitude toward it.Suppose that you are not a boss of an enterprise, therefore, you are powerless to decide how to emission air pollution or recycle resources. Don’t be discouraged! You still have a way that is to develop the idea of green design to protect our earth. Green design is an internationaltheme that has been discussing for many years, and was promoted in “Leaders Summit Meeting” in Brazil in 1992. It is called Ecological Building in Japan and Sustainable Building in Europe. How to put the idea in use? Home Green Design is an affordable way for everyone. I am going to introduce two ways to save energy. They are green roof and a roof covered by solar panels. This essay will show their advantages and disadvantages of the following: 1. Expense; 2. Workingrequirement; 3.Function. Despite the fact that everyone knows the benefit of solar panels, I will argue that green roof is worth than solar panels. First, you do really care about the expense that green roof and solar panels might cost. For a100 sq foot, you need about $25,000 to install solar panels on your rooftop. The system works at least 25 years. On the other hand, it will cost you $1,000 per year. Is that worth? Itdepends on your personal utility rate of electricity. You would save a small amount of money if you are living with a big family. But a fact that you have to consider is one dollar tomorrow probably won’t have same value as today. Otherwise, you still need to pay the upkeep of the system every year and the charge of basic power for keeping it working. It is priced $1,500 for the same area as 100 sq foot, and the maintenance will not be the problem. Basically then, all you need is a waterproof rooftop, a layer of soil and a bag of seeds. The idea of Green Roof is much cheaper obviously and has lower maintenance than solar panels by comparison. Next is the working conditions that for each one. Before you choose one of them, you might need to consider that the area you live is sunnier or cloudier. Solar panels that as the name hints, is a system that has to be solarized under sunshine. In addition to sunshine, theGreen Roof also needs adequate raining to support them growing. If we simply consider that the best environments for them, solar panels need less conditions than green roof. Actually, solar panels will still work on a cloudy day. Of course, no one expects that the system can maintain same efficiency as it used to be on a sunny day. However, that is probably enough for keeping a lamp plus a computer working for one day. Unfortunately, solar panels do not fit in a winded area, because the panels might be damaged by blown stuff. In this stage, they are almost in a tie. Taking that green roof is working 24 hours a day into account, I guess that green roof is a little bit better than solar panels. Lastly I will compare the most important part which is the function of them. In theory, solar panels can basically reduce your energy consumption. What would be powered with solar electricity are the things such as the refrigerator, the computers, the TVs and the airconditioning, etc. Sounds great! But something you do not know is solar panels efficiency averages only 20% to 40%. Solar panels catch sunlight and convert to another type of power that we usually use for home electronic appliances. The system loses much energy during theconversion process. You can’t make appliances working unless you get enough energy from sunlight. So how about green roof and its benefits? It not only filters rains and air pollutants, but also keeps the house warmer in winter and emissions heat in summer. Sometimes it caneven provide a habitat for birds and some small animals. To choose solar panels or green roof is a fascinating question. It is a tough choice for either, I will personally choose green roof anyway. Solar panels are still an immature technology somehow, especially in converting energies. In addition, price is also a point to be considered. I believe that to protect living environments is important for individuals, but it is unacceptable ifno one can solve the problems that I mentioned before.

  • I like the helpful information you provide in your articles. I will bookmark your weblog and take a look at once more here regularly. I’m fairly sure I will be told a lot of new stuff proper right here! Best of luck for the following!

    • I’d vnetrue that this article has saved me more time than any other.

      • From what I understand, Bermuda has done a lot of work using new and old towdars sustainability on a resource limited island. You might want to look into what they do and then scratch the surface.Have you ever visited care2.com? It has a lot of info, numerous links, and then links to links. Don’t forget to consider solar-thermal energy assistance and use; you pre-heat water or other materials stragetically placed and/or plumbed to reduce the solar power load. A lot of folks currently reducing thier grid use and/or going off the grid are returning to 12 volt systems or sub-systems. (It is my understanding that back in the day, obviously before my day, that 12 volt electricty arrived at homes long before the current 110/220.) Also, have you ever been to cityfarmer.org? It is out of Vancouver, BC and its goal is to promote city farming in the Vancouver area and world wide. Certainly at one time, it had a board for the posting of urban farming research, papers, and the more. It also had a posting of a guy who did a paper (thesis/thesis related I think) about establishing farming capabilities in poor, urban areas with limited water access and use. His area was some place in Africa. Posted were some dimensions and drawings of some raised beds using found scrap materials for the growing of lettuces and I think it was tomatoes. The beds included different levels and a slucing system that were arrived at. Included in the discussion were alternative material suggestions, critical technical aspects about the bed dimentions and slucing system, yield discussion, and future and alternative design considerations one could/should make. I’m not sure if this board or posting still exist but, the administrator can probably get you information from the archives. Certainly in the past, this was a good site for connecting to others doing urban and other food production exploration under different conditions.

  • Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

    • Green houses are degnsied to reflect solar rays for the sun as you are probably aware. There is no need to go to a lot of expense to generate your own. Below is an article I found that you might find interesting. Good luck!

      • I believe that i came up with the suoitoln to help all small nations and islands especially the Caribbean. technology has advance tremendously and they are new ideas and inventions that could eliminate pollution and hunger in many nation. Advancement in solar power, wind energy,m bio-agriculture, energy sufficient homes just to name a few can eliminate hunger, reduce energy dependence and improve way of life. however, for large nations these plans seem impossible. Today i realize that despite the short coming in large nations, small islands and countries with a small radius can benefit from these advances. Here is a plan that i write up for my native country Jamaica, feel free to challenge my belief or change or alter this idea if you feel its flawed. Jamaicapopulation 1 milliona system of bio-agricultural plants can increase food production reducing hungerDependent on OIL..-utilizing solar energy would dramatically reduce dependency on oil- solar energy cars can be implementedHomes are insufficient and old – modern homes could reduce energy consumption and reduce dependency on oilPrimary source of electric is from coal plants- several turbine wind mills and solar plants could create sufficient energypeople travel miles on gas bustling cars to reach next town- a series of modern trains..solar could be used(this idea is in next 10 years, technology hasn’t been invented yet)By doing this Jamaica can maintain its beauty and preserve the environment..also in addiction plastics, woods and other environmental troubling devices could be reduce with the current advancement on green products.its just an idea..but what do you think, i want to get my masters in engineer and return home to start development..are these idea absurd or can they be implemented world wide/?

    • Kero:

      The amount of elicertcity your house could produce depends on the roof square footage thats facing the sun or that can have stands to angle the panels. Many people go for a system that gives them about half of their total usage. The actual amount per square foot can vary slightly depending on the pannels you get there are amorphous and crystaline as well as different formulations of the solar material. The best bet would be to contact a solar installer in your area for a free evaluation or for a quick look you can check out manufacturers websites like sharpsolar, bpsolar and I believe home depot also installs solar now.
