Solar Appreciation Day
5 things to be grateful for
Solar Appreciation Day makes us realise that the sun has been the true energy source of our planet since it’s birth. It gives us a generous amount of warmth and light every day. Thanks to devoted engineers, scientists and innovators, we can now take this power and use it for our every day use, thus eliminating the need for fossil fuel production and burning. Why burn fossil fuels here on earth when there is a giant providing us with free power in our solar system?
The increase in the innovation of solar technology has allowed the installation of solar panels to become more widespread. Solar panels are now the cheapest form of renewable energy for our homes, so it’s now easier than ever to install them in your home too.
It’s important to get enough natural light every day to ward off harmful illnesses to keep us healthy, wealthy and wise. The benefits from our sun can be immeasurable when talking to the right person! Vitamin D is one of our body’s most important vitamins, so it’s important to allow yourself time in the sun. It can contribute to a healthy immune system, bone, and muscle health. So, make sure you’re taking the time to get out in the sun, and make sure to wear protection in heavy sunlight.
When using the power of the sun to generate electricity, we can truly own our energy and don’t have to worry about outages caused by events outside of our control. Out of the sun’s 4.6 billion years of existence, it is yet to have an “outage” or “technical fault” within its ability to heat and light our planet. The only unreliable element in our relationship with the sun is our heating of the planet and thickening of our ozone.
Solar PV panels are now capable of heating your water and generating electricity for your appliances. With the introduction of a storage battery in your home, your solar power can now be stored and used in a time of your own convenience. Any electricity that isn’t used, or can’t be stored can be sent to the grid and sold to the electricity providers, meaning that you can truly own your own power
