5 Easy Ways to Power Your Property with Renewable Energy
Choosing a renewable energy source to power your home is a great way to lower your energy bills, reduce your carbon footprint and make your home more sustainable.
If you are considering a renewable energy source but are unsure which one to choose, keep reading to discover the 5 different ways to power your home with renewable energy.
1. Solar panels
Solar panels are one of the most popular choices for a renewable energy source. Solar panels work by using energy from the sun to generate electricity through solar photovoltaic panels that are installed on your roof.
The panels can generate power during daylight hours and it doesn’t have to be sunny in order for them to work, although they do generate more power on sunnier days. The power generated during daylight hours can be stored in batteries so you can still use electricity after the sun goes down.
2. Air source heat pumps
Air source heat pumps are another sustainable solution which works by transferring heat from the outside air to water, which heats your rooms via radiators or underfloor heating. It can also heat water stored in a hot water cylinder for your hot taps, showers and baths.
They produce less CO2 emissions than other heating options, making them a suitable sustainable heating solution for your home or office.
3. Wind energy
Wind turbines are not just for the big wind farms you see in wide open spaces. Smaller wind turbines are available for homes, either as a free-standing pole or installed on the building directly.
They generate electricity by the wind turning the blades, which drive the internal turbine and create power.
4. Biomass systems
Biomass heating systems burn wood pellets, chips or logs to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers.
They are a renewable solution because the materials used as fuel come from renewable sources and they only emit around 765kg of carbon dioxide a year.
5. Hydroelectric systems
All streams and rivers flow downhill. Before the water flows down the hill, it has potential energy because of its height. Hydropower systems convert this potential energy into kinetic energy in a turbine, which drives a generator to produce electricity.
This kinetic energy is then fed into the electrical grid to power homes, businesses, and industries.
