Are We Currently Living In The Era Of Coal Or Alternatives?

From the remains of plants and animals that formerly lived hundreds of millions of years ago, fossil fuels have developed over a long period of time. Since the 19th century, mankind has used fossil fuels extensively. However, at the current pace of demand and usage, fossil fuel supplies are disappearing considerably more quickly than they are being created. Naturally, the issue of when we will run out arises.

The future of Australia’s economy and nation’s growth depends on the power and usage of renewable energy. Thankfully, Australia is blessed with plenty of supplies of both renewable and non-renewable sources. Our energy supplies are a major factor in Australia’s economic success because they power our houses, cars, and businesses. With the expansion of Australia’s economy and population, there is a rising need for energy.

According to a report Australia’s primary energy consumption is dominated by coal (around 40 per cent), oil (34 per cent) and gas (22 per cent). Coal accounts for about 75 per cent of Australia’s electricity generation, followed by gas (16 per cent), hydro (5 percent) and wind around (2 percent).

The top five countries and their percentage share of world proved coal reserves as of 12/31/2020 were:

United States     22%

Russia                15%

Australia             14%

China                  14%

India                    10%

Despite witnessing the extreme natural occurrences due to climate change and using fossil fuels, we still rely on fossil fuels for our energy needs. Also, renewable energy sources like solar panel system prices have fallen dramatically in a decade. The move away from fossil fuels needs to be accelerated. The energy crisis in Australia has, however, accelerated the adoption of solar energy. Individual change can help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and it is much needed. 

Solar energy reduces the dependence on fossil fuels

The environment benefits from solar energy as a clean, sustainable, and environmentally friendly substitute to fossil fuels. A property with solar panels on the roof reduces its carbon emissions, and continued global reductions in greenhouse gas emissions have a positive impact on the environment.

Australian solar users are saving significantly.

The installation of a solar panel system on your roof creates a novel and fascinating lifestyle and adds a lot of value to your way of life.

The following information illustrates how much money you can truly save by using solar panels:

  • Electricity costs aren’t becoming cheaper.
  • The development of technology has reduced solar panel installation costs.
  • Long-term financial gains can be obtained from installing solar PV systems.
  • Solar panels have a long lifespan and need little upkeep.

The typical household can save $9000 and $50,000 over the lifetime of a solar panel installation. Amount of money you save depends on various factors like location you reside in, specifications of the property and the brands of solar products installed. However, the rising demand and ballooning global costs have caused the cost of conventional energy to steadily rise, leading to these savings.

Conclusion – Australians want to regain the electricity control

According to a RenewEconomy report, at 5.34 tonnes of CO2 annually, Australia has the most per capita coal emissions in the G20 and the entire globe. The average Australian emits nearly twice as much CO2 as the average person in China, and 5 times more CO2 than the average person worldwide. Australia produces a large amount of electricity from coal, which increases emissions. Before the sun goes down, illuminate the planet. Solar energy benefits the environment and even a consumer’s monthly utility expenses. Get an online solar quote from Arise Solar right now and regain the control on your power bills.
