Solar energy, along with wind turbine energy, have finally evolved to the point where it is practical, affordable and beneficial enough to seriously consider, for any home or business structure.

Even if renewable energy costs are initially higher than using fossil fuels, solar and wind have one amazing characteristic that just can't be beat. You are, in a sense, the creator of your own fuel and will not be dramatically affected by unstable fuel costs or feel any pinch when availability drops.

Some areas of the country have a higher sun index than others, such as Nevada and Arizona, which make them ideal for solar farms, while other areas of the country have high ground level winds such as Kansas and Oklahoma, making them ideal for wind farms. Most areas in general are not ideally strong for either wind or solar alone, so the best idea is to install a hybrid system that uses both solar and wind turbine power to generate electricity for a home.

Using Solar Energy as a Renewable Energy Source

Solar energy has some restrictions that can make it difficult to implement when restricted to just the amount of available rooftop space of a home, but it can provide significant high output power that may help overcome other concerns.

Using Wind Turbine Energy as a Renewable Energy Source

Areas that sit atop high mountain ranges or in long valleys that are known to channel the wind makes them prime candidates for capturing wind energy. Rooftop wind speeds that average 12mph are necessary to provide the minimum speed needed to create dependable wind power.

Benefits of Using Renewable Energy

Fossil fuels were a cheap energy source that ran our homes and industries, but the side effects are deadly. Now it's time to consider the benefits of using renewable energy to power the world.
