HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, October 7, 2008 3 ................................................. HOMELIVING Solar-powered Power from the sun Solar power is different from solar hot water. Technically speaking, solar power panels are photovoltaic panels. Whereas solar hot water uses the radiant heat in sunlight to heat water, photovoltaic panels convert sunlight into electricity. This electricity can be used or sent out into the electricity grid, sending the meter backwards and giving a refund on bills.

Clear solution After years of extreme weather conditions, many people are looking for ways to make their home more comfortable without increasing energy consumption. According to the Australian Greenhouse Office, Australia's seven million households produce 20 per cent of the country's total greenhouse gas emissions, largely through electricity use. Up to 40 per cent of a typical home's energy is lost through windows. The Window Film Association of Australia and New Zealand (WFAANZ) offers a cheap and environmentally- sound solution to this problem for energy-conscious homeowners, buyers, owner builders and renovators -- window film. As well as lowering energy costs and controlling solar heat gain, additional benefits of window film include improved comfort, fade protection, ease of installation, privacy, safety and security and, unlike blinds or shutters, window film lets in light always.
