Silicon Solar Raising Public Awareness of Alternative EnergyAdam
Silicon Solar is a solar manufacturing company that is getting the word out about a new solar technology that is more than four times as efficient as traditional solar panels.This technology heats buildings and their water supplies using energy from the sun, instead of burning fossil fuels.It works by converting solar energy into thermal (heat) energy, which is then used for heating.The savings can pay for itself in two to eight years, with that number decreasing as energy prices rise. The highest energy cost in a house comes from its heating.Replacing traditional heating systems with solar heating is one of our best hopes for reducing our carbon emissions.
The technology is called evacuated tubes, as the tubes are surrounded by a vacuum, nature’s best insulator.This allows the tubes to trap the sun’s heat into the tube, no matter how cold it is outside, so it works great in the snowy winter.
The younger generation is growing aware of our thermal solar technology and they are helping us spread the word.They are inheriting this World from us, and they want to make sure they are getting the best World possible.High school and college students are collaborating already, getting the word across starting at their own schools.They are raising support to install a solar heating system for their school.When administrators find out that this technology is not only good for the environment but can actually save the school money, it is a no brainer!
If we really want to do something about our future, we have to spread awareness of this technology.This is where we need your help.Alone, there is very little we can do, but together we can spread the word and have a real effect on our environment.
Traditionally people have had to choose between helping the environment and saving money.However, our evacuated tubes come in both shades of green because they help the environment and save people money!
Evacuated tubes are already used all over the world.The only thing that this revolutionary technology needs in the United States is public awareness!
