Relying on sustainable forms of energy is a goal of most cities to save on costs and at the same time to help reduce carbon foot print.

More and more cities and countries take pride in using renewable energy sources like solar, and wind turbines.

In Scotland, wind turbines powered its electricity needs for more than a day as reported by the website The Guardian. Electrical Association            

“High winds on Sunday were strong enough to power the equivalent of all of Scotland’s electricity needs for the day, according to environmentalists. The Met Office issued a yellow “be aware” weather warning covering much of the country as wind speeds reached 115mph on the top of the Cairngorms and gusts of more than 60mph hit towns in the north. The weather brought travel disruption, with some bridges closed, ferries cancelled and trains affected but helped boost the country’s renewable energy production.”

More than a hundred days
Costa Rica for its part took pride in relying on sustainable energy for more than 100 days. Electrician

“The small Central American nation has generated 100 percent of its electricity from renewable sources for the past 113 days, and the run isn’t over yet. The country, which draws clean energy from a variety of renewable sources, still has its sights on a full year without fossil fuels.

More and more commercial and residential property owners are considering solar energy for their homes. Apart from the efficiency and energy independence factors, its environmental-friendliness make homeowners dream of going solar someday.

The solar industry after all has a lot to brag about. Electrical Association    

Upworthy.com for instance shared about a solar panel that doubles as glass shingles.

“There have been solar shingles before, but what makes Tesla’s different is they’re incredibly pretty. Compared to those big, bulky, blue ping-pong tables we probably normally think of, these are downright artistic. Musk hopes by making the panels visually attractive, they’ll entice more homeowners to add them to their roofs. They showed off four different types of tiles: terra cotta, slate, textured glass, and smooth glass. They work like thousands of little solar panels all hooked together.”

Surpassing barriers
The Media Agency The Independent shared that in the United Kingdom, Solar Energy is becoming more and more prevalent. Electrician     

“James Court, head of policy at the Renewable Energy Association, said: ‘Solar overtaking coal this summer would have been largely unthinkable five years ago. This new data shows its popularity amongst homeowners and businesses and its falling costs. Now that we have a significant global and domestic industry, solar is one of the cheapest forms of power. Government policy stability is critical, however. Solar PV deployment in August 2016 was one third of what it was in August 2015 due to the sudden and severe changes to policy in the past year.’”

 Solar Power Lamps are heaven sent in areas that have yet to be reached by mainstream power lines.

Huffington Post featured a community in India that are now using Solar Lamps to illuminate their dark evenings while they await to be part of their country’s power grid. Electrical Association

“Customers, who live either off the grid entirely or have less than 12 hours a day of electricity, are charged a small down payment for a high-quality solar PV system. Then, through its “progressive purchase” model, they pay in advance for a designated amount of energy consumption. Each payment counts toward the final purchase price, which — when fully paid — permanently unlocks the system, according to the company’s website.”
