Many people have asked me to explain what salt cavern storage means. It’s a new term that’s popping up in the news, especially when the issue is renewable energy or hydrocarbon storage. To best explain it, I will break it down into three parts: salt, cavern, and, storage.
Switch to water heating systems that use solar power to heat hot tubs, pools and indoor water. Using electricity or gas to heat water is not terribly efficient, but water heaters that use solar power maintain water temperatures using only the sun’s rays by way of solar panels. Many of these improvements will cost you a bit up front, but the cost savings and tax deductions will usually more than offset that cost.
The watt rating is the amount of power (amps x volts) the panel will produce in full sunlight at 77 degrees F or 25 degrees C. This is the industry standard for all photovoltaic panel ratings. However, it is the “best case” scenario.
The power is the one we are eagerly waiting for. The reliability of fossil fuel for long is not dependable. The disappearance or the slow depletion of fossil fuel is a reality.
One of the renewable energy sources that is really moving forward is known as biomass. This allows for common waste materials including wood, trash, crops, and even gases from landfills to be used to create energy. This is also going to reduce the amount of materials lying around in our landfills. Maybe one day the use of geothermal energy will be more plausible. Right now though it is complex, complicated, and expensive. The procedure for accessing it involves going into the core of the Earth more than 4,000 miles beneath the surface.
Next, you have water which covers the majority of the surface of the Earth. There is also the additional moisture and rainfall that can be collected as time goes by. There is energy found in the water as it moves along and this can be converted into energy at hydropower plants, and also by using the power of the waves to generate other forms of energy.
The Salene cable car offers a scintillating ride with some spectacular view of Mt. Blanc and Lake Geneva. It is a popular attraction with tourists. There are a number of parks and gardens offering some beautiful sights of the city. A stroll along the streets of the Old Town, with its narrow cobbled alleyways, gives a good opportunity to soak in the beauty of the place.
There are also many means of building and creating your own form of renewable energy, such as solar panels, wind generators, and micro hydropower. A lot of these can be done for little money, and help create energy on smaller scales.
