Renewable Energy Systems
Solar power systems are home renewable energy systems that harness the natural power and energy of the sun. Current federal, state, and local energy tax credits make it more affordable now than ever to purchase solar panel installation services and create a solar power solution in your own home.
Geothermal residential heating and cooling systems take advantage of the Earth’s near-constant underground temperature. In the Mid-Atlantic states, ground temperatures average around 55 degrees year round below about 10 feet. Traditional heat pumps extract heat from the air and send it into the home. Geothermal heat pumps use soil (or rock or water) instead of air, so they are far more efficient.
Generators for homes are an effective way to provide reliable home backup power. Installing a permanent standby generator in your home ensures that when public power is unavailable, you’ll be able to rely on your own power source to meet your family’s energy needs. Generators for homes usually run on natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas (propane), or another type of fuel.
As the cost of fossil fuel goes higher, alternative ways to power vehicles will become more widespread. One such method is electricity. Electric cars are more energy efficient, less expensive to run, more environmentally friendly, and require less maintenance than conventional gasoline powered vehicles.
Before natural gas, oil, and electricity usage was widespread, wood was the fuel of choice for most Americans to heat their homes. With fossil fuel prices going up, wood is now again being seen as a viable renewable energy alternative. Wood burning technology has evolved since the days of fireplaces and firewood. Now, the medium of choice is the wood pellet, which is made from compacted sawdust, crop waste, spare paper, bark, wood chips, and other organic waste products.
