A Common Passion for Change with Solar Energy Resources

The universal passion for change with solar energy is growing. When the economy began to fall apart throughout the world, governments and citizens began to focus heavily on alternative projects. The trend for green products that give environmentally safe alternatives has been increased for electricity due to several factors. These include high oil prices, incentive programs, and price reduction for panels.

For the first time since 1982, primary energy consumption was down in 2009. This was a huge milestone for those interested in promoting renewable sources. The use of these alternative sources has grown significantly during the economic difficulties. Though the expectation is for the primary source to be used, over the next twenty years experts expect a five percent decline.

Fuel prices have continued to raise causing citizens and governments to seriously consider alternatives to oil based systems. As the prices continue to fluctuate, they end up going higher faster than they fall. Typically, they will hover around the higher prices much longer. These trends are expected to continue. As the prices remain higher, people will continue to seek other methods of obtaining their electricity and governments are rewarding these ideas.

When the economy started to return to normal, the primary source consumption began to increase again. The damage was done, though, regarding the negative attitude towards these sources. Wars, rumors of wars, and continuous high prices have managed to keep the focus on finding other ways to power cities and homes through renewable sources.

The extended focus on alternative energy has turned into a global awakening. Whenever the prices seemed to begin to fall, something would happen in the international scene that caused them to quickly rise again. Instead of relying on resources that would eventually run out, with prices that were tied to so many volatile systems, people are still looking for independence from oil and coal. Incentive programs are appearing all over the globe as governments push legislation that promotes renewable resources. These actions used to take global treaties, but are now being done unilaterally. These programs provide tax deductions and reduced prices for installations of the systems for conversion and new installation of solar panels. When on the grid, the consumer is often able to save enough to more than pay for the installation costs.

The green resources for electricity are usually provided by having panels installed on the home that are made of PV, or photovoltaic cells. These are often seen in banks of panels across rooftops. They convert the sun's energy directly into electricity. These along have enjoyed an increase in use by over 100 percent since 2004. With power companies often buying the excess electricity, government incentive programs, and the popularity of green resources, they continue to enjoy market growth.

The recession gave way for rapid growth to an already popular idea. The passion for change with solar energy has taken off and continues to grow. Through incentive programs, higher prices for traditional electricity, and reduced prices for installation and technology, consumers are grasping onto the renewable energy with fervor.
