Transcript of Solar Energy
Topics to be Covered
In California...It's Worse
Maintenance and replacement of current energy infrastructure (Energy and Environmental Economics, 19)
California Renewables Portfolio Standard (Energy and Environmental Economics, 19)
47% increase over 16 years (Energy and Environmental Economics, 19)
USE SOLAR PANELS!
Solar Panel Energy
Not Used Locally
Negative Effects of Petroleum Energy
Emits carbon dioxide
Negative Effects of Nuclear Energy
Benefits of Solar Panels
Saves Money In The Long-Run
Cost of Solar System
Drilling Can Lead To Spills
Endangers The Environment
We are offering a solution to be eco-friendly and, at the same time, more efficient with energy by installing a "solar system" for the main campus of Allan Hancock College. By installing a solar system on campus, greenhouse gases would be eliminated from the atmosphere. Over time, the school would also save thousands of dollars by conserving energy.
Rising Electricity Rates
-Types of energy in existence
-Energy sources not used locally
-Negative effects of locally used sources
The problem with traditional electricity.
The solution to traditional energy
Benefits of solar panels
-Cost of Solar System
No more electric bill; just pay off panels
-Campus uses about 542 kWh/month
-3,613 Watts system required
-20 255 W panels, with inverter, power optimizer and monitoring portal costs
$8,957 sold by Wholesale Solar
Campus uses about 390,000 kW/month costing almost $19,000/month
Unused energy gets credited
Installation cost about $4.60/W

Although it can be a long process to get a solar system up and running, it is cost effective in the long run. After all the permits have been filed and approved, the campus will be self-sufficient, while saving money and the earth. The savings can then be used to improve school programs or complete construction projects.
