Oil, coal, fossil fuels – there’s a reason they’re called nonrenewable sources of energy. They’ve lasted a pretty long time but, at the rate we’re burning through them? Let’s just say that if we don’t switch to renewable energy like solar power any time soon, the next couple of generations might not even know what coal is. Sounds scary? It is. Sounds far-fetched? It isn’t.
Studies show that our coal supply will be fully depleted in the next 50 to 60 years. They say our current oil reserves will be sufficient for the next 40 years before they start to dwindle down and need to be rationed. What does this mean for us? The electricity we’re so dependent on is run powered by fossil fuels such as these. Can you imagine not being able to turn on your lights, charge your Smartphones, or plug in your PC’s 40 years from now? We’ve been taking energy for granted for far too long now – and perhaps it’s time we stopped.
The world is now clamouring for power plants to find renewable alternative energy sources. Solar power, hydroelectricity, and wind energy are just a few examples that are readily available and can provide the energy needs of countries worldwide. They all come with their own benefits. Take for example solar energy
. Whether for financial reasons or environmental ones, installing solar power systems offer tremendous advantages.
