Which is more advantageous Wind Farms or Solar Farms?

SolarPower

 

Solar power is more advantagious as you don't have to rely on the wind.If you own a stream you can harness that power to but it takes alot of work setting up a comstock and screening system,plus the flow rate has too be such as to turn the turbine at a given speed and usually you can only generate 12 volts which means you need a battery bank of 10 car batteries to get 120 volts which have to be converted into alternating current.Wind power is very expensive as it takes a very big generator with propellers to get 120 volts,plus a converter

Solar power is easy to set up as you only need to install panels,which connect togeather by a wireing harness that plugs into another panel.You then connect the last panel in the series to an invertor which changes the voltage from direct current to alternating current.You also need to install a flow meter ito the system to turn the incoming current off when your batteries are charged up.With one panel I ran a t.v. for three hours before the charge was used up and then had to recharge the batteries again.A system set up to run a home properly would cost around $35,000.

Clean Energy

 

Admit it: It gets irritating to be told - over and over and over -

to go green when you can barely afford to go to town.

It costs $80 to fill the tank, and the gas bill at home is rising

fast, too. So, sure, it's nice to know that an

Energy Star refrigerator could slash the monthly

electric bill. But where's the $1,000 for that new appliance

supposed to come from?

Plus, how do you know which green technology is the best

choice for your particular home? There are

WaterSense toilets, Energy Star clothes washers,

gray-water systems and double-pane windows, to name

just a few choices.

All those green tips have turned into white noise. It's hard to

know just what to do, let alone how to pay for it.

What's your home worth? Find out what your home is worth

in one easy step!

Enter the Cambridge Energy Alliance, which is shaping

up as a model solution for cities nationwide.

The Massachusetts nonprofit has an answer that, on its face,

is so deceptively simple one can't help but wonder why it

hasn't been done before: Go to every home, business and

public building and offer a complete, on-site energy

makeover, including financing that means no extra costs for

owners.

Your energy savings foot the bill

The alliance kicks into action this summer, with plans to

reach half of Cambridge's buildings within five years, and

already it has attracted plenty of imitators. It uses no

taxpayer money, relying instead on a revolving loan pool

made up largely of private funds. Borrowers don't even

need to incur extra monthly payments; their loans are paid

with the savings from the new reduced energy bills.

"You're borrowing from your utility budget to pay for two

things: a now-lower utility bill and the debt service on the

loan," says Steve Morgan, of Clean Energy Solutions,

the lead consultant on the project. "This can be done without

a government penny."

When i used to get at the top of existence although as of late We've built up a level of resistance.

GOOD INFORMATION.

I hope and wish these solar and wind technologies will become more affordable in the future,then it will be of great news for people like me who lives in a very hot and windy part of India.

Thanks flread!!

Please. For mass production to supply energy on a global scale it only takes common sense to realize that a combination of three methods will be needed. Sun, wind and limited geothermal will provide FAR MORE energy than we will ever need. I emphasize that the use of geothermal should be minimal. Firstly because it really won’t be needed to any great extent but, more importantly, it will always involve actions that are very invasive of the Earth and its internal processes. Hydroelectric power, on an extremely limited personal level might be feasible if all other options have been exhausted but I really can’t envision a situation where this would apply. The one method that should not even be open for discussion is nuclear.

From everything I've been hearing. I think geothermal might be the best option for future residential energy.

Thanks Firead for responding. Thanks for responding to me. I plant to have full solar installation in my new home, so I am working on it. I hope it becomes cheaper so everyone can use it. We can also use wind power in open farms so we can harness whatever is possible. Thanks again.

I ran a home on solar and generator for 18 years.The generator was very expensive too run,especially the gas type.
