Different types of renewable energy sources

Renewable energy sources are the only solution for our future well being. All the other fossil fuels have already lead to disastrous consequences to our planet and weather balance. Although the political heads admit there is a problem; its so obvious, it would be hard to ignore, theyre not really doing anything to stop the mass production of vehicles powered by fuels deriving from oil and gas. As always, it is up to us to do something really drastic if we want to boost our reclining living conditions and especially our astronomical gas, water and electric bills!



All non-renewable energy sources are no longer effective and are much too expensive and damaging to be considered for future use. Not only do renewable energy sources sustain life and help preserve our atmosphere, they also help us lower our end of the month costs in home energy consumption.



So how can we change this damaging trend? What different types of renewable energy sources can we turn to? We all know about solar, wind and water renewable energy sources, and we also realize they will preserve our planet. Let us look at the different applications these energy sources can have on our homes.



Residential solar power will make a real difference to your household. The initial expense of placing the storage cells on your roof or in the garden area will soon be forgotten once you start producing your own clean energy. Not only will you be cutting down drastically on your bills, youll also be independent when, for example, there is a general power cut on the line. Your household will still be functioning on the energy you have stored during the daytime.
It is of course, important to place your residential solar power in an area where there is plenty of sunlight, this will allow you to absorb and generate energy at its fullest.



Residential wind energy is also another solution. Although this form of renewable energy source is still in the process of being fully developed, it is becoming more and more widespread. With wind power generators you can produce limitless energy, thus providing a lifetime power source.

Bio fuels are also a good solution, when it comes to running your vehicle, for example. Liquid bio-fuel can be used in cars and is a renewable and natural fuel that may substitute diesel fuel for cars. It is non-toxic and biodegradable, in addition to being much less expensive. This is a great solution for cutting down on your cars costs and the pollution present in our environment.
 
There are so many different types of renewable energy sources to choose from nowadays, and other solutions are popping up everywhere. Sooner or later we will all have to turn towards these natural energy sources, whether it be to save our planet from a disastrous end, or simply because soon, there will be no more oil and gas to exploit. Prices will not stop rising due to the diminished resources available, so it is time to do something for the environment and our future.
