Solar Energy Products At Northern Tool

Solar energy can be used to generate electricity, provide hot water, and can naturally heat and light up a building.

It was just after the oil embargo of 1973 that many scientists began to really take a look at the enormous potential of solar energy.  Since then, renewable energy has made some important advances; however, geo-political structures and corporate interests have hindered solar and renewable energy technology to be useful or better said available for the average person.  

This obstacle is however beginning to turn.  More and more local municipalities and governments are encouraging the use of solar energy.  In addition, as the realities of the current dependence of energy continue to reveal its negative impact on our planet, we will be viewing renewable and solar energy as the more sensible path to our energy demands.

Here are just a few reasons why one should consider making a transformation to solar and renewable energy:

1.  Solar power is free.  No one can claim ownership on the sun and there is now way for any company to just shut the sunlight off on you and force you to pay.

2.  Solar energy does not pollute unlike the fossil fuels we currently use which is the main contributor of global warming.

3.  It is an issue of national and economic security.  Most of the fossil fuels we use come from countries that are either unstable or unfriendly.  There is little control on its costs or availability.  Freeing ourselves from that dependence has its obvious positive impacts.

If you are considering embracing the potential of solar and renewable energy, then feel free to browse this site.  We are dedicated to consolidating as much resource and information as possible pertaining to solar technology.
