The world is optimistic about renewable or unlimited energy resources, but people rarely understand about the whole process on how such technologies turn resources into an actual energy you can use now including the electricity. People are used to paying for the energy due to the understanding that the energy production which has been generated from fossil fuel is expensive. They might include the machine operations, mining worker salaries, distribution, taxes and s forth. However, when the green technologies come, people hardly understand how it still generates a cost for consumers. What they might not understand is that the green energy is generated by the technologies where their sustainabilities are determined by the proper maintenance. For your information, green technology equipment sustains more damage than machinery used in the production of fossil fuel. Furthermore, green technologies are widely open to improvement in their core technology, capacity, and capability.
The green technology may generate cost mainly due to repair and replacement of any parts of the equipment used in energy production. It’s generally shown at the solar power production where the solar panel is controlled by high tech computerization which generates a high cost. Solar panels face harsh climate and sunlight exposure for sure, the damages are the common problem in the continuous mining process. Solar panels also become the main target of lightning attacks as they’re installed in the higher surface to get the best position in taking the sunlight exposure. Solar panels can be broken and should be repaired or replaced which require you to pay for it.
Today, companies are applying the surge protection equipment which can prevent the damages to the equipment. This installation can cut out the connection when the lightning strike. This will protect other devices connected to the mining installation from damaging surge. It means that the surge will never reach vital equipment in the solar mining installation, so any damages can be avoided. This will avoid mass repairs or replacements due to climate factors. However, the cost reduction generated for this method still doesn’t compete with the fossil fuel.
However, the new surge protections are capable to remain working after the strikes. It allows the solar power mining installation staying online after stroke by the lightning. The workers wouldn’t have to replace the surge protection equipment all the time lightning strike. At this point, the use of newest green technology may reduce the production cost and bring this energy more feasible for people at any time in the future.
