4 years ago I was on a bus from New York to Texas to visit a few friends since it was my first time traveling by busy I decided to take the window seat so i can have things to look at the view was beautiful and i had a blast I began to noticed a few things on the high way and in a few little towns some of those places their street lamp post had solar panels on them and some had their own generator since I am a huge fan of helping our environment and hopefully the world I had an idea,
Our country spends about $11,840.515 dollars give or take on Electricity it could be more or it could be less I do not really know I guess this is why there’s a comment section here so people can tell me things I do not know lol ,I ask my self what is our government doing to lower this cost other than raising taxes so that we have to pay for this what are other solution that can help and not have a negative effect on the people then I thought about the major black out the U.s and part of Canada had a few years ago so I told myself we have to avoid something like that as well,
Hear me out lets say for a rare moment in the U.s History the Government does something for its people let’s say America, Canada and Mexico combined has 82 trillion lamp post or street lights between cities, towns, parks and high ways, what if we made a deal with them since we are all connected this will benefit all 3 countries and all its people we have a partnership to convert Half of all these lamp post in to solar energy and 4 small wind turbines so when it is winter time and the sun is being blocked out we can still generate the energy we need with the wind, Not only that also putting in LED lighting or energy efficient light bulbs they last longer are brighter and will save all 3 counties a lot of ton of money not to mention reducing the use of Fossil fuels which we are running out of and this will help our future generations. I know there are some Post that hare connected to houses and power plants and stuff so those we can leave alone I am hoping that his crazy idea will take off especially in island and small countries I know the Philippines their is a few Communities that are being built now that are taking full advantage of Solar power I hope to see more places taking advantage to this great resource soon Like I do remember hearing that the U.s was planing on Building a large solar tower that will provide Energy to a lot of people homes I also think that this type of energy will be useful for businesses. and any other great thing about it we are creating jobs which a lot of people have been struggling to find for these past several years,
Pros of Solar Power
Solar panels give off no pollution, the only pollution produced as a result of solar panels is the manufacturing of these devices in factories, transportation of the goods, and installation.One of the great pros of solar energy is the ability to harness electricity in remote locations that are not linked to a national grid. A prime example of this is in space, where satellites are powered by high efficiency solar cells,Solar energy can be very efficient in a large area of the globe, and new technologies allow for a more efficient energy production on overcast/dull days Another great pro of solar energy is the cost. Although the initial investment of solar cells may be high, once installed, they provide a free source of electricity, which will pay off over the coming years.The use of solar energy to produce electricity allows the user to become less dependent on the worlds fossil fuel supplies.
Pros for Wind Power
The creation of wind energy is “clean”. Unlike the use of coal or oil, generating energy from the wind doesn’t produce pollutants or require any harmful chemicals. Wind is free. If you live in a geographical location that receives plenty of wind, it is there for the taking. As a renewable resource, wind can never be depleted like other
natural, non-renewable resources.
so people what to you think of this idea I know that this is something that wont be done because the powers in charge never has the best has the peoples interest at heart, but I do think it can be possible one day and we should be working on it now.
