Brant Renewable Energy

Services/Products Description: Solar Power— To generate solar power, a consumer can use photovoltaic (PV) cells, which produce electricity from sunlight. PV modules can be installed on rooftops, as wall mounts or can be ground-mounted on appropriately designed racks. The sun is the most readily available form of energy. Wind Power/Energy— Wind turbines are available in various sizes and many are mounted on tall towers as wind speed increases with height above the ground. These large turbines have produced energy for hundreds of years— most significantly recognized in countries like Holland and the United States. Turbines convert wind into energy with their propeller-like blades. Bio-Energy— Bio-energy is energy available from materials derived from biological sources. Bio-mass is any organic material, which has stored sunlight in the form of chemical energy. As a fuel it may include wood, straw, manure and many other byproducts from a variety of agricultural processes. Water Power— Water power is the largest source of renewable energy in which flowing water is converted to energy to produce hydro power. An example on a larger scale is the powerful conversion of water to hydro power in Niagara Falls. However, water power can be produced in a more simpler form, like a small seasonal creek— as long as the flow is strong enough and steady enough to convert the water into power.
