The value of solar energy

 

posted by Focused on July 14, 2009 @ 7:51 am in TECHNOLOGY

 

            Solar power has been an overlooked source of energy. It is one of the most efficient sources of energy available today. Countries like Jamaica should look into making solar power their main source of energy. Jamaica obviously has an abundance of what solar panels need to function: Sunshine.



          Many have mentioned the high costs of installation as the main reason why so many Jamaicans have yet to embrace the use of solar panels. While one cannot ignore the harsh realities most Jamaicans face financially, let us not forget that solar energy saves people a considerable amount of money in the long run.



        So how does one get more people to use solar energy? One should approach the situation in a gradual manner. In the field of real estate, the competent authorities should make solar panels a mandatory requirement. In other words, as of an established date, no building permit would be issued to any construction project that does not incorporate solar power as a source of energy. This would help to further sensitize people with regards to its importance and move towards a more energy-efficient society. Not to mention the drastic reduction in overall pollution.



         Here are some of the benefits of implementing a new solar energy policy:



  1. Solar power is renewable, we will never run out of it.
  2. It is environmentally friendly and will not contribute to global warming.
  3. The installation of solar panels would create jobs.
  4. Once users have broken even, they will never have to pay for electricity again.
  5. People will no longer have to worry about paying increasingly high electricity bills. Items such as computers have become household necessities. Teachers require students to use computers for more  school assignments. This trend will only increase. Therefore more electricity will have to be consumed.
