As the world moves toward more renewable energy and begins to phase out fossil fuel, American Power and Gas is at the forefront of the movement. Concerned about the environment and the economy, they’ve begun work to improve renewable energy and work toward more green energy solutions.
As consumers sit back and watch, the energy revolution is taking place all around them. However, the media hasn’t yet jumped on board and the investors aren’t yet making it a big deal. However, in the past decade, energy from renewable sources has begun to surge ahead of fossil fuels.
As more people discover that they can power their homes from solar power and the power of the wind, they’re phasing out the way we’ve learned to think of electricity and they’re focusing on how to power up without using the fossil fuels that are fast being depleted from our world. The United States isn’t the only country on board with this endeavor, China and India are also following the new trend.
What Other Methods Are Being Updated?
As renewable energy is taking a huge leap, there is also much research being done to improve the technology of batteries that are being utilized to run electric vehicles and to store the energy that is soaked up from the solar power and the wind power.
The technology is allowing the batteries to store power for longer periods of time and to be more reliable. As these technologies are combined they continue to grow and as they grow, they quickly surpass the fossil fuels that we have come to rely on over the last few decades.
No More Gas Wars
As early as the 70s they knew that fossil fuels would eventually run out. As consumers lined up to fuel their cars they had to rely on whether or not they had an odd or an even-numbered license plate in order to determine if they could fuel up. This became a huge hassle and more ways of locating fossil fuel were quickly researched.
Cleary, the industry was already well aware that there was going to be a shortage of fossil fuel. As more people became concerned, new means of locating fuel would quickly take over and solar power, as well as wind power, were rapidly being considered as new means of powering up machinery and houses.
The Disruption Of The Electric Grid
As renewable energy takes a huge surge, the paradigm for the electrical grids is quickly becoming old school. A good example of this is that Thomas Edison successfully invented light bulbs. Since that day, many have relied on the light bulb to illuminate their homes, offices, and other locations that they visit.
At the time, it was the cutting edge of technology. Houses and businesses were lit with a light bulb and no longer had to rely on gaslit lamps that were dirty, required much care and cleaning and filling. A few would balk at the progress, however, in short order, nearly everyone saves for a few religious groups and die-hards, would switch over to electricity. American Power and Gas worked hard to dispel the myths that solar power wasn’t going to cut it.
Mini Power Plants
As more people are looking into renewable energy sources, homes and businesses alike are becoming their own mini power plants. Solar panels are cropping up on roofs, in barnyards, in fields and other locations where the energy can then be transferred to a battery that will store this energy and finally, to an inverter that will allow users to plug in their personal electronics and other appliances to use off of this renewable power.
In just a few short decades, this kind of power is becoming more of a reality for many. New homes and offices are being built to run totally on solar power and these companies are top of the line for technology. In just a few short years, nearly every building is going to have some form of solar power.
As more homes and businesses begin to rely on solar power, utilities as we now know they are going to become obsolete. There will be a disruption in their jobs because there won’t be any further need for such employees.
How Will Rapid Advances Change The World?
Just as the horse and buggy have gone by the wayside, so will many of the older forms of energy. Thanks to the rapid advance of technology, batteries are going to be stronger than ever and store the energy that they collect from the wind, sun, and water for longer periods of time.
More vehicles are going to become solar powered and there will no longer be a need for fossil fuel to run vehicles or even to run the lights. Many great electric companies have made great strides at the forefront of the changes to fossil fuel as we know it. American Power and Gas is at the forefront of these changes and they continue to help support them as they go.
