ADVANTAGES OF RENEWABLE ENERGY

You must have probably heard of renewable sources of energy; it is becoming widely accepted and popular throughout the world today. Countries, companies and individuals are adopting it for its numerous benefits. In a country like ours with so much untapped potential for renewable energy it is sad that constant light is seen as a luxury and near impossible. Aren’t you tired of having to iron all your clothes for the week because you’re not sure when next you’ll have light? Or running to charge your phone and power banks because you are sharing light (you know na, one day on, one day off).

Using renewable energy over fossil fuels has a number of advantages. Here are some of the top benefits:

Maintenance Requirements are low

Contrary to the popular misconception that renewable energy is for only the rich and that maintenance cost a fortune, renewable energy actually requires overall less maintenance than generators that use traditional fuel. This is because renewable technology like solar panels don’t rely on flammable, combustible fuel sources to operate. Fewer maintenance requirements translate to money saved.

Renewable energy is renewable

Simply put, it never runs out. Renewable energy technology uses resources straight from the environment to generate power, which cannot be said for many types of fossil fuel, as we use the resources, they become scarce and increasingly difficult to obtain and as we well know scarcity of a commodity leads to increment in the price of that commodity.

Renewable energy saves money

Using renewable energy can help you save a lot of money in the long run. Not only will you save on maintenance cost, but on operating cost as well. When you’re using a technology that generates power from natural processes you do not have to refuel.

Renewable energy has a lot of 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. The same cannot be said for fossil fuel. 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.

The need for renewable energy is growing every day and you shouldn’t be left out!
