With the cost of electricity in New Jersey always ranking in the top ten for most expensive, you can quickly see why renewable energy sources are becoming more popular. If your home relies upon the power grid, you are subject to their costs. If your home has solar panels or wind turbines, you are taking control of your own power generation. Many homeowners have seen a massive reduction in their energy bill. Maybe you are wondering if renewable energy is right for you. Team Electric Plumbing & Air wants you to have the answers so you can make a decision that will be right for you and your family.
Wind is created by the uneven heating of the earth’s atmosphere. When the wind blows across the blades of turbine, it causes them to move. The mechanical movement of the blades is converted into electricity. Wind acts as your fuel source. You will be spending money upfront to install your system. Sometimes there are federal tax credits and state incentives that can lower the cost of installation.
Homeowners rarely install biopower digesters, but several cities in New Jersey have begun to implements them in their power program. Certain types of wood, agricultural waste from crops and livestock, organic material and sewage sludge from wastewater treatment produce gas as they decompose. With the right equipment, you can harness electric and thermal energy during decomposition.
When you take a drive through your neighborhood, you can probably spot a few of the homes that have solar panels installed on the roofs. Solar energy is becoming one of the most popular types of renewable energy. With an average of 206 sunny days in New Jersey, your solar panels are going to be working most of the year to produce clean, renewable energy for your home. Photovoltaic solar cells use silicon. When sunlight hits the silicon, the electrons become excited, and electricity is produced. The panels need to be situated on your home to collect as much sunlight as possible. There is a lot of technology that goes into solar panels. If you have unanswered question about solar energy we have answers.
