Photovoltic Solar Panel System

          Solar energy is derived from the sun’s radiation. The sun is a powerful energy source, and this energy source can be harnessed by installing solar panels. There is a reason why solar energy has become a trending topic when talking about renewables. While it has been widely criticised for being expensive or not very efficient, solar energy has now proved to be extremely beneficial – not only for the environment but also financially speaking.

Advantages:

  1. Solar power is pollution free and causes no greenhouse gases to be emitted after installation.
  2. Reduced dependence on foreign oil and fossil fuels.
  3. Renewable clean power that is available every day of the year, even cloudy days produce some power.
  4. Return on investment unlike paying for utility bills.
  5. Virtually no maintenance as solar panels last over 25 years.
  6. Creates jobs by employing solar panel manufacturers, solar installers, etc. and in turn helps the economy.
  7. Excess power can be sold back to the power company if grid intertied.
  8. Ability to live grid free if all power generated provides enough for the home / building.
  9. Can be installed virtually anywhere; in a field to on a building.
  10. Use batteries to store extra power for use at night.
  11. Solar can be used to heat water, power homes and building, even power cars.
  12. Safer than traditional electric current.
  13. Efficiency is always improving so the same size solar that is available today will become more efficient tomorrow.
  14. Aesthetics are improving making the solar more versatile compared to older models; i.e. printing, flexible, solar shingles, etc.
  15. Federal grants, tax incentives, and rebate programs are available to help with initial costs.

Rainwater Harvesting Filter

        Collecting your own rainwater is an excellent way to conserve this precious resource. A basic rainwater collection system catches rainwater from your roof or other surface and channels it into a container for storage.

         Rainwater itself is generally clean, but it can pick up microorganisms, pollutants and debris when it hits your roof. This is why systems for rainwater use inside your home often include filtration or other treatments for safety.

          Outdoor rainwater collection systems don’t need as much treatment because the water is typically used outside.  Rainwater Harvesting is the process of accumulating and storing rainwater for on-site use instead of allowing it to run off. Rainwater provides an independent and free water supply that offers several ways the water can be used.

Advantages of harvesting rainwater:

  1. Provides self-sufficiency to your water supply.
  2. Reduce the cost for pumping of ground water.
  3. Provides high quanlity,soft and low in minerals water.
  4. Improves the quntity of ground water through dilution when recharged to ground water.
  5. Reduces soil erosion in urban areas.
  6. The rooftop rain water harvesting is less expensive.
  7. Rainwater harvesting systems are simple which can be adopted by individuls.
  8. Rooftop rain water harvesting system are easy to construct,operate and maintain.

Urban Farming

    Urban farming, also known as urban agriculture, essentially refers to growing plants and keeping animals that produce food within a city. It may also encompass processing and then distributing that food throughout the city. There are numerous benefits of urban farming, and here we’ll outline some of the most valuable.

Advantages of urban farming:

  1. Increases food security.
  2. Creates a sense of  belongings.
  3. Produces healthy food.
  4. Provides learning opportunity.
  5. Makes efficient use of land.
  6. Reduces soil erosion in urban areas.
  7. Can grow seasonal fruits and vegetables.
  8. Low cost.
  9. Less greenhouse emissions.
  10. Less food wastage and pevent illness.
  11. Clean air in surrounding for Breathing.
