INDIA GOES SOLAR - WHAT BETTER PLACE THAN HERE, WHAT BETTER TIME THAN NOW?
Introduction

http://www.indiagoessolar.com/ - We are here to help you find the best solar solution for your house, company or farm. We have studied the solar market in India and have found that while solar makes intuitive sense to many in India, the solar industry has done far too little to inform and educate consumers about its potential and versatility. It has to start somewhere. It has to start sometime. Our goal is to provide you with all you need to know about solar solutions in India to be able to make an independent and informed decision.

We are on the consumer’s side. We want to introduce the consumer to solar options, products and companies and then help the consumer chose freely amongst them.

The Everyday Climate Warrier Guide 4: Care as a Professional - Climate concerns play a growing role in how people pick jobs and how companies can attract talent. More and more people already feel as uncomfortable working for a fossil fuel company as they would working for a tobacco company. To many, it matters what they do and where they fit into the bigger picture – the want to be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem. Some might just feel that working for a bad company is not very rewarding. Others already actively seek a “green” job (refer). I see a huge generational gulf between those who have build a career before Climate change became a mainstream concern in the 2000s and those who started to work more recently. The former tend to firmly believe that renewable energy cannot replace fossil fuels. The latter are thinking about the best way to make it happen. The former find it difficult to keep up with the pace of change. For the latter, change cannot come fast enough. There is a also second factor. At my c

The Everyday Climate Warrior Guide 2: Care as a Voter - Climate change is becoming an ever more present political issue in democracies around the world. It impacts power structures and industries, linking up with fundamental political debates about such topics as development and justice, individual interests vs. the common good, or short vs. long term benefits. In these important debates, you can have your say as a voter and can choose to make Climate change a part of your political decisions. Thus, you can force politicians to deal with the issue and develop policies. Here are some examples to show how important this is: In the US, for instance, the Republican party representing just under half the voters has no real Climate change policy. The topic is downplayed and viewed through an immobile, ideological prism. The fact of Climate change is often denied (as if reality is subject to approval). The result is that there is no inter-party political debate about what would be the best way to deal with this challenge. It is left to

How Each One of us Can Fight Global Warming - Let me say this upfront: We need to save the planet (cheesy, but true), and we have about 30 years to do it. Climate change is the struggle of our generation. It is happening as you read: draughts,  threatened harvests, rising sea levels, vanishing ecosystems, more extreme weather. There is more than enough scientific evidence that it is a man-made problem, linked to the rise in carbon emissions witnessed since the beginnings of the industrial era in the 19th century. Sometimes, the vastness and complexity of the issue, the lack of progress and the repeated apocalyptic messages can dull our senses or scare us into looking the other way. Let s not be distracted. Let s stay alert. We don’t need to wait for others to sort this out. We can do our part – here and now. You might be surprised at how much power we, as individuals, have to fight global warming, if we really care and make it a part of our everyday decisions. You can make a difference as a consumer, as a voter, as
Climate change is the struggle of our generation. But you can make a difference as a consumer, as a voter, as an investor and as a professional. Let me explain to you what I mean.

http://bit.ly/1O7OV8e - There is virtually no limit to the amount of power that you can push into a grid, and there is no limit to the size of the power plants either.
On this article you can understand why there is virtually no limit to the amount of power that you can push into a grid, and there is no limit to the size of the power plants either.

A Brief on the History of Climate Change – Part 4 - The fact that Climate Change is a real issue has been established by climate scientists for several decades. But where did it all begin? When did people start to realise that something was wrong with our climate? The History of Climate Change: 2010 – 2013 With the largely symbolic Copenhagen Accord signed in 2009, 2010 saw the signing of a three year deal on “Fast Start Finance”, through which developed countries would start to green their economies and take measures to adapt to climate change. The year also witnessed the UN Climate Change Conference in Cancun, Mexico, which, although it failed to produce a globally binding treaty, ended with a number of agreements between governments. The next year, with the human population reaching 7 billion, data from multiple sources show that the concentration of greenhouse gases is rising faster than previously recorded. In 2012 Arctic sea ice reached its minimum extent at 1.32 million sq. miles, which was the lowest extent ever recorded
In 2013, the Keeling project from Hawaii revealed that atmospheric CO2 concentration had, for the first time, breached the 400 parts per million (ppm) mark (since the project began in 1958).

The Everyday Climate Warrior Guide 3: Care as an Investor - Investors have enormous power to change our economy and make it more sustainable. In fact, they seem to be the one stakeholder group that companies, who control most of the emissions value chain, really listen to. And the investment landscape is changing for the better. Some very large investors, such as Norway’s $900bn sovereign wealth fund, have already decided to shift their capital from companies that are part of the climate problem to those that are part of the climate solution (refer). The reasons for doing that are partially political. But they are also linked to a higher return and lower risk expectation from sustainable investments. For more, see the discussion on the carbon bubble as an example (refer). There is also a large divestment movement which is particularly active in US universities, where more and more students are demanding that multi-billion endowment funds stop investing into carbon related companies (refer). As the heavy hitters are making their i
Investment choices are pivotal: a transition to a low carbon economy will require a shift in the way we build and use our infrastructure and this is driven by investment.

Everyday Climate Warrior Guide 1: Care as a Consumer - We are used to making everyday decisions based on preferences such as comfort/fit, pleasure, timing, price, functionality, or brand. It is still unusual to take climate change into account as a further factor. We should, however and it is not difficult. Sometimes climate change decisions dovetail with other benefits. For instance, replacing your lightbulbs with energy efficient LEDs is a great choice economically as well as from a perspective of climate change. The same is true for many other energy efficiency measures. Or, for some, green choices might be cool choices. Wouldn t you like to drive the new Tesla or BMW i8? (Although, of course, buying a small, fuel efficient car would be better than buying an electric sports car as long as electricity is still mostly produced from fossil fuels.) There are other, very powerful consumer choices that have a huge impact on climate change – but we often don t think about them in these terms. This is is a great starting point for mak

http://bit.ly/1EgecdG - Here is a brief overview of the principles behind solar water heater systems and their 5 key components.
Solar water heater systems work on the principle of absorption of heat received from sunlight and its transfer to a fluid that gets heated up and carries the heat away from the point of generation.
