Alternative energy in Western Australia is important for several reasons. First, it is a sustainable source of fuel or power so that we may continue our current lifestyles indefinitely. Second, it produces fewer carbon emissions, which helps retain our solar/ultraviolet balance. Third, it better for our planet as a whole, since it reduces toxic waste put into agriculture, our food supply, our water supply, and keeps unnecessary waste from polluting our oceans. What are some locally available alternative sources of energy?
Perth Seawater Reverse Osmosis Plant
Desalination is an excellent way to convert massive amounts of seawater into drinkable, usable fresh water for human consumption. The Perth Seawater Reverse Osmosis Plant is an efficiently run desalination plant, which draws electricity from the Emu Downs Wind Farm, bringing the renewable energy cycle to completion. This allows Perth and Western Australia to treat seawater appropriately, while renewable energy to accomplish this task. This is an excellent example of human needs being met fully by alternative energy cycles.
Griffin Energy and Stanwell Corporation
Griffin Energy and Stanwell Corporation have a joint venture on Emu Downs Wind Farm, which is capable of producing 80 megawatts of power, enough for fifty thousand homes, at peak performance. Wind energy is an excellent source of power, since it is ever present and can create electricity which can be stored in batteries and electricity storage plants for use during low periods of wind. This is a great way to skim the cream off the top of the milk, so that all produced wind energy is used. Griffin Energy and Stanwell Corporation also have a joint venture on Badgingarra Wind Farm, which is set to be commissioned in late 2012 and will have a proposed capacity of 130 megawatts, capable of powering 80, 000 homes at peak performance.
These are only a few example of how local alternative energy is being used to facilitate the lives of thousands of Western Australians. Not everyone is aware of locally available alternative energy and what initiatives are ecological to support. This is a great way for young Australians to learn about the energy of the next generation. Envirosafe Solutions is part of this ecological movement, and we offer eco friendly fuel treatments, hand cleaners, radiator liquids, and soil treatments for your green projects.
