Home Renewable Energy Eau Claire

Solar Electric Customer Steve HarrikKeeping your Eau Claire home comfortable all year around can be a bit of a challenge – not to mention a serious hit on the budget during the winter season. While the summer season might not be quite as challenging, contending with freezing temperatures often cause Eau Claire homeowners to look for better ways to stay warm.

In times past, most homeowners were limited in their choices – gas, wood or electric – but that is no longer the case. Thanks to many advancements in technology and a concern for protecting the environment, much has been done in the field of renewable energy. Now, home renewable energy in Eau Claire is a viable option that many are choosing.

What Is Home Renewable Energy?

By definition, renewable energy is green energy. It is generated from natural and renewable energy sources such as solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, water power and biomass. This type of energy is seen as renewable because unlike its counterparts – fossil fuels like coal or oil – it will not run out or be depleted.

These forms of energy are sometimes supplemented with a Powerwall, which while not a renewable energy source, works with a home renewable generator that stores energy and can be programmed to charge itself while electricity prices are low, then turns off when they are high – thus helping to reduce home energy costs.

In addition to being readily available and reducing energy costs for your Eau Claire home, renewable energy offers several other advantages. These include:

  • Renewable energy leads to job creation – especially in the construction and utilities field. In fact, in countries such as Germany and the United Kingdom where renewable energy is becoming more and more common, many new jobs have been created, thus boosting the economy.
  • Renewable energy can stabilize global energy prices. Fossil fuels increase and decrease depending on the current economy and availability of the resource. As elements such as wind, water, solar power and others are always available, there is no need to adjust energy costs due to availability.
  • Renewable energy options require little maintenance, once they have been installed.
  • Choosing a home renewable energy source means you and your family will be healthier. Rather than breathing in germs and air polluters from “traditional” energy sources, you can eliminate those in your home.
