Many people around the country have a tough time with discontinuing the natural resources we have been using for energy for so many years. It’s tough to curb those old jobs in the oil and coal industry because generations have made a living and fed their families off of that income for years and years. The fact of the matter is that the world is changing drastically.
Climate change, renewable energy movement, and advancement in technology is naturally making way for renewable energy solutions to kick out the old ways. We can look forward to a brighter future and a healthier future with solar energy.
The Advancement of Solar Energy Technology
The advancement in technology for solar energy and solar energy storage is growing and improving. Solar energy storage research dating back to the 1980’s is being revisited by scientists as a viable option for solar energy storage.
The University of Texas has just recently developed a hybrid device that collects and stores sunlight in the form of heat for 24-hour use. It involves norbornadiene-quadricyclane, which is a compound of two hydrocarbons (organic molecules). This allows for a single hybrid system to avoid losses when energy is transferred from a collection device to a storage platform.
Solar Energy Jobs are Taking Over
In many towns and cities across the country where coal mining and oil companies once thrived, solar energy companies are starting to take over claim of the land and market.
According to High Country News, “In Colorado’s North Fork Valley, solar energy – along with a strong organic farm economy and recreation dollars – is helping to fill the economic hole left by the dying coal industry, which sustained the area for more than 120 years.”
In these areas, mines are closing down and hundreds, even thousands of jobs are being lost. Local governments and national environmental and climate groups are working to come up with solutions for the transition from fossil-fuel dependence in these communities to renewable energy dependence.
Solar Energy Will Benefit Our Children and Grandchildren
Thinking ahead to the future is a must when talking about solar energy and other renewable and green energy solutions. The long-term benefits of going 100% renewable with our energy resources from solar and other resources will give our children and their children a healthy and sustainable future. From cutting fossil-fuel emission to sustainable and organic farming, we can leave our children with a bright future.
This is most important right? We don’t want to leave our kids with a mess to clean up, and at that point, it could be too late and too catastrophic to fix. We are seeing a trend in many businesses and corporations hoping on the solar energy train. Agriculture is moving towards solar energy panels to help their farms. We can see many rewards of solar in the agricultural industry.
What it will provide our children for the future:
- Lower energy bills
- Economic growth
- Job market increase
- New Technology and solar companies
- Cleaner and healthier environment
- No pollution
If we continue to move towards 100% renewable energy, our children will benefit from a great life. We’re solving issues by doing so, and everyone can benefit from the use of solar energy. Pope Energy in Massachusetts is a leader in solar photovoltaic projects across many industries. From commercial real estate owners to farmers, we are helping everyone benefit from our solar energy projects. We also provide solar energy storage that can be used in many ways.
