While the most talked about renewable resource for generating power is usually solar, there are other resources just as popular and effective. That is not to say that harnessing the sun’s rays to generate electricity is not highly effective, it is one of the best alternatives for reducing carbon emissions that are instigating climate change.
As well, hydropower is an energy source that has been in use since 1880. People are usually unaware of the fact that hydroelectric dams have been the single largest source of renewable electricity generation for the past century.
But it is wind power that is stepping up to become the most common source of energy in 2019. A whopping $145 billion in investments over the last decade alone all but ensures this form of energy generation is expected to be permanent and a leader.
It should be noted that even with all this money spent on wind power it is currently only providing 6.5 % of electricity to Americans in 2018. This figure is expected to rise only marginally in 2019 to 6.6%. These figures are mirrored for hydroelectricity which, as an aside, tells us that our efforts to capture natural and renewable resources for the purpose of generating electricity fall short of our needs significantly.
Altogether, statistics show that 17% of electricity in the United States comes from renewable resources. That means solar only accounts for approximately 4-5% when combined with other renewables. Another 20% is generated from nuclear energy, leaving the remaining amount coming from fossil fuels (and negligible things like wood, biomass, etc.).
The purpose of sharing this information is not to persuade or argue for one energy source over another. However, it would be instructive to become educated on the various sources of energy that will be powering your home, this country and the world in the future and, perhaps, make energy choices that you believe will be most valuable in the long run.
Meanwhile, if you have questions about the state of electricity in your own home or business, we invite you to contact the experts at J.M. Mullen Electrical Services. We are here to serve the needs of our community.
If you celebrate Christmas, then you likely enjoy the decorating that comes with it. Nothing puts you in a holiday mood quite like a tree lit up, carols playing in the background and festive lights highlighting your home’s exterior. The downside of this is the amount of time and energy it takes to install outdoor lighting. Never mind the threat to life and limb when it comes to putting up the lights and taking them down. Often, it must be done between weather events that include everything from snow storms to hail. So, while sitting by your fireplace enjoying a hot cup of chocolate, you may have been thunderstruck with the idea – why not keep your Christmas lights up all year round? Well, let’s investigate the pros and cons of this idea more closely.
• Use white lights to decorate your outdoors, that way they can be enjoyed year-round. While red, green, blue and yellow lights scream ‘Christmas’, white lights are pure and quietly elegant. Put these up all around your home and you can turn them on and off whenever the mood suits you. Just don’t use white lights that are indicative of winter weather, such as icicles.
• Today’s outdoor lighting is able to be programmed to change colors to match the season or holiday – red for Valentine’s Day, pastels for Easter, red, white and blue for the 4th of July. Even so, the most advanced lights are still only intended to be left out for perhaps up to 3 months, then it’s time to take them down. The reason is simple – the cords that cover wiring are subject to cracking and wearing out in regular weather. This makes them electric hazards instead of electric delights.
That’s right. Lighting that is left out too long can become dangerous to health and home. If left on the roof or trees they may spark and catch fire, leaving your home in ruins. In fact, if you take the time to read the warranty and instructions included in each package of lighting – manufacturers recommend you not keep them up over extended periods of time. For now, outdoor lighting should be used in limited time frames.
As for the hassle of having to put up and take down the lights, consider it all part of the season! For all electricity-related information, contact the experts at J.M Mullen Electrical Services.
Welcome to the 21st century where things that were
never thought possible are now becoming quite commonplace. Need an example? Look
no further than the concept of heated sidewalks and floors. If you live
anywhere that experiences snow, ice, hail or freezing rain as part of your
outdoor climate, these systems may be ‘just what the doctor ordered’.
Heated sidewalk and driveway systems are also known as
‘snowmelt’ systems. They work to prevent the buildup of snow and ice on
everything from trails to driveways and patios to sidewalks. Snowmelt systems
are even applicable to roadways. However, they do not come without a price.
Therefore, the way to ensure their economic viability is to consider
installation in limited amounts, such as within a specified area of a sidewalk
(like the 3-foot center or middle area of the walking path).
The great thing about snowmelt systems is they operate
throughout an inclement weather event such as a snow or ice storm. Their
benefit extends to the cost-savings that are incurred through labor, such as
highway and local snow removal and the use of deicers and chemicals that
perform this duty, again saving money and the environment all at once.
Of course there are drawbacks, the first of which is the
prohibitive costs that are incurred with revolutionary ideas such as this.
Making snowmelt systems widely available across an area would appear to be more
expensive than the current method of attack to precipitation. But as with any
new idea, costs continue to go down as more homeowners, businesses and
municipalities take this concept seriously.
The same can be said for heated floors in homes. Once an idea
limited to futuristic cartoons and shows, it is becoming more commonplace in
homes. Many homeowners consider heated floors to be a smart energy choice as
the heat radiates upwards and warms an entire space versus the use of costly
space heaters or simply raising the temperature on your thermostat.
If you are interested in learning more about snowmelt systems or
radiated floors, contact the experts at J.M. Mullen Electrical Services. When
it comes to your electrical needs, we have you covered.
It’s almost a certainty that somewhere in your house there’s
a surge protector plugged into one of your outlets. Most people plug in their
televisions, computers, chargers, etc. Every year our dependence on electronic
devices grows and so does our need to protect those items. Most people think to
protect their televisions, phones, and computers, but neglect the biggest units
that need protection. Your stove, refrigerator, washer, and dryer are just as
vulnerable to power surges as your personal electronic devices. Enter a whole
house surge protector.
Unlike a power cord that plugs into the wall, a whole house
surge protector is connected directly to your home’s breaker panel. Because the
surge protector is properly insulated, it can be installed on the inside or
outside of your home. The power strip surge protector doesn’t have the capacity
to protect your electronic devices from large power surges. A whole house surge
protector will catch the small and large surges for every outlet in your home.
Look for a surge protector that has multiple stage
protection. It must be sensitive enough to take care of small surges and hefty
enough to handle the major surges. It’s always best to have this type of surge
protector installed by a professional electrician. If you install the device
yourself, you’ll probably void the manufacturer’s guarantee and it may affect
your insurance coverage. Protect your finances as well as your home and call on
The unit will have indicators to let you know that it’s working
properly. LED lights on the panel will show you the status of your home’s
electrical system. If both lights are on, the protector is working and there
have been no surges. If one light is on, the unit is still working but there
have been surges. If both lights are off, the unit isn’t working and needs to
The proper sized surge protector installed correctly could
last for the life of your home. And, it may increase the value of your home
upon resale. Every safety system you add to your home is an attractive selling
