solar power vs. wind power

We have made so many technological advancements in the past few decades but have often failed to see that all the changes that we are making are linked to one particular thing that is extremely scarce: energy. Although we have a number of energy sources available to us, most of what we consume at this time would be from fossil fuels, coal, or nuclear energy. They all have certain side effects. With the advent of global warming as well as the rising prices of fossil fuels, people have begun to look into other sources of energy; cleaner and cheaper energy that could power up homes and allow us to live comfortably.

The two most popular sources of energy are, of course, the most abundant resources on the planet. There are two: the sun or solar energy, and the wind. Now the most common question is which is the better option between the two? For this question, there is not a direct answer, because there are a lot of factors that have to be taken into consideration. If you are looking to supplementing your home energy with a renewable source, here are some of the things that you will need to look into:

Fossil fuels are currently the biggest non-renewable energy source. Alternative sources of energy are those produced without the use of fossil fuels. Often, alternative renewable energy sources have a replenishing supply that could be interpreted as infinite. Energy from the sun, or solar energy, is a very good example of an alternative and future energy source. These are not yet developed well enough to be commercially viable in many cases, but these future energy sources are our best bet at sustainably preserving our environment. Among numerous alternate sources of energy there are a few common options.

It is common knowledge that without the sun mankind would not exist. The sun has been used for a myriad of purposes since time immemorial. The light and heat of the sun are used for heating, desalination of seawater, cooking and also producing electricity. Solar power from the sun is used to convert water into steam that is fed into a generator to produce electricity; this is a passive type of solar technology.
