Recycling the power of the sun, Solar power
If there is perhaps one area of recycling which is often overlooked it is solar power, which is potentially one of the most lucrative areas of recycling in the world. The ability to harness the power of the sun and transfer this into electricity which can then be used across the UK and across the world is something which more and more of us should be considering for the future. Can you imagine a 10%, 20% or even 50% saving in your energy costs?
While historically the efficiency of solar power panels and other solar powered products has been questioned by many experts, there is no doubt that great progress has been made over the last few years. Many people are under the misconception that countries such as the UK, while perhaps not the hottest in the world, is unable to make any real use of solar power and solar panels. However, the truth is that there are great efficiency savings to be made as even on “dull days” the heat and power emitted by the sun can still make a substantial difference to your home energy costs and those of the UK as a whole.
There are many solar powered products on the market and this is an area which is set to become more and more popular in years to come. Governments around the world have already committed hundreds of millions of pounds to further development and research into solar power so we can expect a significant an onslaught of new products and services in the years to come!
