Solar, Wind, Renewable Energy.."MegaPower" Verses "MicroPower"_"Green Earl

Solar, Wind, Bio, Energy News And Commentary By_Green Earl, 30 year Pioneer In Conservation & Solar Energy

The Power Pace Has Quickened...The Big Power Brokers
Are Concerned, because just think about it a minute,
it makes more common sense to generate power at the
point of use, therefore it is more cost-effective to
design future wind and solar projects on site..

Make no mistake, "Microgeneration is both a Serious
form of clean energy production as well as a cultural
movement that is gathering momentum Worldwide..."

SO TAKE ALL YOUR BILLION DOLLAR TRANSMISSION LINES AND
STICK EM WHERE THE SUN DON'T SHINE AND THE WIND DON'T
BLOW...CAUSE IT SHINES HERE AND IT BLOWS ON OUR PLANET.



What is “Microgeneration”

Microgeneration, also called “micropower”, is the generation of zero or low-carbon electrical power by individuals, small businesses and communities to meet their own needs. The most widely-used microgeneration technologies include small wind turbines and solar power photovoltaic systems that have been promoted for decades as alternative sources of renewable energy. What is new, however, is the potential for micropower to move out of the alternative scene and be taken up on a wider, societal level, thus making a noticeable impact on energy policy. Because of technological advances, microgeneration now includes handheld solar and wind-power recharging devices for personal electronics, as well as advanced photovoltaic and wind-turbine products to power homes and factories.

Traditional “megapower” production of electricity is inefficient because traditional power stations are located far from the point-of-use. And the impact of such energy generation on global warming and other environmental factors has created a global movement towards reducing carbon emissions by getting “off the grid”.

The wider benefits of microgeneration are now being recognized. A recent study by the UK’s Sustainable Consumption Roundtable shows that microgeneration actually acts as a catalyst for cultural changes in consumer attitude, and provides evidence of the important impact that microgeneration has on consumers’ attitudes and behaviors regarding energy production and use. Microgeneration is both a serious form of clean energy production and also a cultural movement that is gathering momentum worldwide.
