“Is 2020 the right time to change our power supply for a renewable energy alternative for our homes?”

With everyone becoming more aware of the impact that fossil fuels are having on the planet, many of us are choosing to switch our energy into some more sustainable.

Some people are buying energy providers who exclusively use renewable energy. In contrast, others are installing solar panels(check out our SunPower comments for more information), or even hydropower and windmills, if that’s possible.

Today, I’m going to tell you why 2020 is the year to switch to a renewable energy power supply.

Nuclear Power?

Firstly, I should address the elephant in the room.

There are specific energy supplies companies that don’t put CO2 into the atmosphere, but still, they are not renewable. The most obvious example which I can think of is nuclear energy.

I’m not going to be giving my personal view on the topic. But if you care about the environment, I don’t think it’s going to be remotely hypocritical to be using as much nuclear energy as you can if renewable sources are not providing enough power.

Climate Change Matters

The first reason why you may wish to consider switching to a renewable energy source is that we’re becoming more aware of the impact that fossil fuels are having on the environment. As scientists are finding more information, people are becoming more vocal.

Your children are probably able to talk to you about the impact that fossil fuels are going to have in the future, and the effect they have today, the Australian brushfires being a good example.

We don’t take our planet from our parents, we borrow it from our children. And we have a duty to make it clean and safe for them.

There is a limited amount of oil and coal

Secondly, there is a limited amount of fossil fuels in the ground for us to use. Once they run out, we’re going to have to wait for several million years before they’ll be there again.

As the name suggests, renewable energy can be used over again. We’re never going to run out of the wind, or out of the sun, and the rivers will never stop flowing.

Even with nuclear energy, there will come a day when we run out of nuclear material. And non-renewable energy sources, sunlight, wind, and rivers don’t need to be stored anywhere.

You can save money

And I’m going to end by talking about a selfish reason, but one that’s important nonetheless.

Using renewable energy is going to help you to save on bills.

If you’re generating your own energy, the energy companies are not going to be able to charge you for it, as they will not have given it to you. Although they will likely make you pay them back for the installation, once this payment has been made, they won’t be needing any money from you.

Money which you’re not spending on your energy bills is money that you can be spending on your children’s futures.

Conclusion

The world is not what it used to be. Gone are the days where we could burn as much coal as we like without thinking about it.

Although there could be an argument made for nuclear energy, the only way we’re going to sustain the planet in the long term is by using renewable energy.

Integrated Hardware and Kitchen Islands

Gone are the days of oversized handle pulls on pantry cupboards and cabinets. In 2020, integrated hardware is very much in vogue. Your kitchen cabinets should be built close to the walls, and this would mean there’s more space to move around. Your kitchen needs a better kitchen island, because a lot of folks are no longer using high stools in the kitchen as it’s not friendly for children. A new model designed by Jenny Dina Kirschner, the kitchen island is built in such a way that there are extensions which can accommodate short stools, and this makes it a lot safer and easier to use.

The Bedroom Trends

The bedroom is a place for relaxation, hence, the colour theme and furniture in the bedroom is important in setting the right atmosphere. Bedroom trends for 2020, includes canopy beds, beds with upholstered headboards, curved sofas, accessories like round mirrors and flower vases with green plants. Ask your furniture builder to add a built-in bookcase to your bed as this will create more space for you.

Bold Monochromatic

This year, the monochromatic colours are longer dull gray, white or taupe. In 2020, bolder and more pronounced colours such as cobalt blue and hunter green are now used. These colours speak elegance effortlessly.

Floral Wallpapers

Floral Wallpapers are favoured this year above geometric wallpaper designs. They bring fun to your rooms, and you can also use them in your bathroom. They are bold and daring.

Dark Painted Doors

No longer are the white doors trending, dark painted doors are the real deal now. Since they are different from the colour of the interior, these dark doors add warmth to a room.

The major goal of decorating your home is to achieve more space and a lively atmosphere which in turn improves your productivity and quality of life.
