By now, you might have heard about the threat and challenges posed to human beings by global warming and climate change. Governments throughout the world are deliberating on measures to control and tackle global warming menace now than later. But what is global warming? The increase of earth's atmospheric temperature comes from the destruction of the ozone layer by gases such as carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants. Therefore, it is the responsibility of every citizen to contribute to global warming prevention. How can I, as a citizen, take part in preventing global warming? One great way is to use an alternative energy source such as solar panels, which use solar energy instead of other sources of energy such as fuels, which produce more carbon dioxide. Here, we discuss various ways in which solar energy helps global warming.

Solar panels do not yet exist in most homes. Between 2-4 million homeowners have implemented this technology. Estimates show that there are around 130 million homes in the United States. So, you can already tell that most homes do not have solar panel capabilities.

Energy is an essential commodity in our modern world. We need electricity to power our homes and gasoline to operate or vehicles. Most of the world's energy supply derives from fossil fuel sources. However, fossil fuel sources are finite, meaning that they will eventually disappear. Many energy experts believe that the oil reserves in the world will no longer exist in 50 years. This scarcity is one reason why alternative energy solution implementations are gradually increasing in society.

A tax credit is a reduction of the total amount you would owe. Energy storage devices are charged exclusively by the Solar PV panels, even if the storage is in service in a subsequent tax year when the solar energy system installation occurs. Subsidies provided by a utility for you to install a Solar PV system not included in the income taxes; this is through the federal law. However, when a buyer or a utility gives you cash in exchange for the renewable energy certificate, it is considered a taxable income. Leading to an increase in your gross profit due to your payment, but there will be no reduction of the federal solar tax credit.

To have a full understanding of how the federal tax credit can benefit you, in regards to solar energy, you need to know what it is and how it works—officially known as the Solar Investment Tax Credit proposed in 2005 as a part of the Energy Policy Act. Ever since its inception, it has been a popular tool to reward the use of renewable energy. However, with many extensions already taking place, the solar tax credit is scheduled to cease in two years (2022). Today, we've put together a renewable energy guide to understanding federal tax credit for 2021.

Over the last decade, there has been a massive expansion of solar energy use among the United States citizens. Several factors have contributed to this, the obvious one being the Solar Investment Tax Credit program. While the tax program is the most lucrative incentive, it is getting much smaller every year.

Energy independence is a desirable prospect that many people have dreamed about achieving. But to truly accomplish this feat requires many different hardware pieces, and this is even more necessary when you add in the use of an electric vehicle (EV) within a system. This time is where the brand new addition to Bosch's lineup of EV chargers comes into play. Coupling one of these chargers with solar paneling can create an energy island that any person would be proud to be stranded.

Bird B Gone netting is to protect solar panels against bird messes. Birds look for the safest places where they can make nests and lay eggs. They risk your wiring underneath the solar panel. You would like to have the solar panels last longer. Installing a net makes it easy to keep the birds away. Bird B Gone netting targets making it easy to keep the birds away. The mesh is easy to install. The net stays in position perfectly to allow you to keep the solar panels in good working condition while at the same time preventing the birds from messing the place.

The SolarEdge EV Charger is the most economical way of charging electric vehicles. It is very cheap because it only requires sunlight. The system includes a pile of solar panels, a battery pack, and a 5.5-ton steel plate. It is designed to generate and store electricity off the grid and is also swift compared to the Standard EV charger. Also, it reduces the hassle of installing a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter separately and is very efficient for running a business. This charger supports full network connectivity, which is quite advantageous considering the role the internet plays in our day to day lives and activities. It allows tracking of the charging process, and this controls issues such as overcharging. For the EV charger configuration via the app Ethernet, WIFI or cellular connectivity is required. Also, it keeps track of the charge duration, energy used. Because many solar power generators move through the day, they allow optimum absorption of energy and are hence used to charge.
