The Importance Of Solar Farms?
In the past few years, the renewable energy has been a main focus in the US. The desert areas in some region is gaining a lot of attention and the solar and wind energy are mainly the focus. The Colorado and Mojave deserts is the perfect area for solar farm because of the very wide area of sand. That is the reason why California is now considered to be the solar capital of the world and the government have approved a lot of projects that are on its way. But even if there is a great attention on the generation of energy using the renewable sources, a lot of people do not believe that the dependence on fossil fuel will be reduced because of the presence of solar farms.
Will the energy industry be ready for renewable energy?
The generation of renewable energy is just one part of the problem, the transmission and distribution of the equipments like the transformers is also very important. One of the biggest machinery in the whole world that have the ability to produce, transmit, and distribute energy is found in the US. But a lot of this machinery is getting old. There is a reasonable waste of energy because of the aging transformers, aging energy transmission and distribution network, and there is a need for an upgrade from the energy distribution system in order to handle additional work regarding the difference in energy from fossil fuel to renewable energy.
You should take note that a lot of homes in the United States can possible be powered by the renewable energy that can be produced by wind and solar. It is important that all of the necessary equipments for the storing, distributing, and transmitting of energy should be in place before you can really enjoy the benefits of renewable energy like the reduction of the carbon dependence and footprint on foreign oil, and the ability of renewable energy to pay for itself in just a few years.
The issues that needs to be settled when it comes to renewable energy.
The fluctuating supply of renewable energy is considered as one of its biggest issue. A solution for this problem is to create some storage units for renewable energy and storing it every time there are a lot of renewable energy that is being generated, and use it every time the supply is low. The big storage batteries can be the perfect solution for this issue.
The smart grid is one more factor that would need to be very smart and responsive enough to be able to handle the issues regarding the fluctuation of energy levels, pre-empt energy disruption, and tracking the distribution of energy. The energy transformers are the ones that have the biggest problems. The energy transformers are really important when it comes to the generation of energy from solar farms.
