To start with green Energy is clean energy, which includes renewable sources that are self replenishing . This means it is produced with little-to-no environmental impact and does not dispense greenhouse gases into the air that contribute to global warming. Clean energy is becoming increasingly prevalent in Africa and around the world. Renewables are a low-cost and environmentally-friendly way to get the energy we need to power our rural and urban societies. Renewable energy, often referred to as clean energy, comes from natural sources or processes that are constantly replenished. For example, sunlight or wind keep shining and blowing, even if their availability depends on time and weather.
As stated above, green energy sources play a significant part in eliminating the emission of greenhouse gases into the air. Green energy sources include wind, geo-thermal, hydro, and solar energy. Wind and hydro sources generate energy through the movement of air and water, while geo-thermal and solar sources generate energy through heat. All, however, provide reliable energy and protect the environment.
Advantages of green/renewable energy:
1)Renewables lower reliance on foreign energy sources
Renewable energy technologies use resources straight from the environment to generate power. These energy sources include sunshine, wind, tides, and biomass, to name some of the more popular options. Renewable resources usually won’t run out. However for many types of fossil fuels – as we use fossil fuel resources, they will be increasingly difficult to obtain. Also they are likely driving up both the cost and environmental impact of extraction.
2)Maintenance requirements are lower
In most cases, renewable energy technologies like solar require less overall maintenance than generators that use traditional fuel sources. This is because generating technology like solar panels and wind turbines either have few or no moving parts and don’t rely on flammable, combustible fuel sources to operate. Fewer maintenance requirements translate to more time and money saved. If Taqon Electrico does a fix and supply arrangement with a client, the initial costs might seem high but with little to no maintenance requirement over time, using green energy becomes an investment.
3)Renewables energy save money
More over, using renewable energy can help you save money long term. Not only will you save on maintenance costs, but on operating costs as well. When you’re using a technology that generates power from the sun, wind, steam, or natural processes, you don’t have to pay to refuel. The amount of money you will save using renewable energy can vary depending on a number of factors, including the technology itself. In most cases, transitioning to renewable energy means anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars in saving
4)Renewable energy has numerous health and environmental benefits
Renewable energy generation sources emit little to no greenhouse gases or pollutants into the air. This means a smaller carbon footprint and an overall positive impact on the natural environment. During the combustion process, fossil fuels emit high amounts of greenhouse gases, which have been proven to exacerbate the rise of global temperatures and frequency of extreme weather events.
The use of fossil fuels not only emits greenhouse gases but other harmful pollutants as well that lead to respiratory and cardiac health issues. With renewable energy, you’re helping decrease the prevalence of these pollutants and contributing to an overall healthier atmosphere.
5)Renewables lower reliance on foreign energy sources
With renewable energy technologies like solar, you can produce energy locally. The more renewable energy you’re using for your power needs, the less you’ll rely on imported energy, and the more you’ll contribute to Zimbabwe energy independence as a whole.
To sum up, Taqon ElectriCo is a company that deals with solar energy a renewable energy that is environmentally friendly. Solar energy is not only a form of green energy but it is very cheap and reliable. Contact us now to work with us and also contribute to the environment.
