Societies today rely on sources of external energy for the manufacture of goods and the delivery of services. This energy allows us to live in diverse climatic settings, in large populations, and often in controlled environments. The level of dependence on those sources varies according to the climate, level of comfort, and general needs of a community.
Energy is expensive to acquire yet easy to waste, and using it for electricity and fuel takes its toll on the planet. To date, the greatest sources of energy have been fossil fuels, of which the three most commonly used are: coal, petroleum and natural gas. Unfortunately, the combustion of fossil fuels releases pollution into the atmosphere and fossil fuels are non-renewable their availability will decline.
Conversely, comfort can also be achieved with lower energy consumption through the use of energy efficient approaches. Well planned energy use, therefore, balances human comfort with reasonable energy consumption levels by developing and implementing effective ways to create and utilize energy.
Smart Solar's solution to this is in creating innovative products which are solar powered. Smart Solar utilizes solar energy to power its products in a number of ways. In our water features and aquatic products the power directly runs the pumps, whereas in our lighting products the electricity is used to recharge the batteries, allowing the product to illuminate at night without the presence of the sun.
