Transcript of Solar Energy

Today solar energy is used in many various way for power and benefits. Solar energy can be use to create electricity for everyday electronics like computers, cellphones, T.V. and many more. Also solar energy can heat up food, water, homes, buildings, and fluids when used as a thermal energy. Solar Energy What can solar energy resource be used for? How is solar energy easily renewed? As long as the sun is shinning solar energy will always be a easily renewed resource for energy. Once the sun dies out, which is in several million years. Solar energy won't become a source of energy to use anymore What is the cost of using solar energy? Well the cost of solar energy depends on what your using it for. For example a typical home cost for using solar energy would range from $18,000-$40,000. It also depends on your location, design of your solar system, and how many solar panels you would use. What are the positive aspects of using solar energy? The positive aspect for using solar energy is it's a renewable resource, cause no pollution, and won't suffer from inflation and increasing in price. It's also a idle for remote locations or anywhere. Using solar power can reduce the amount of fossil fuel being use and decreases the green house gases. What are the negative aspects of using solar energy? The negative aspects for using solar energy is the cost of the solar panels and installation. It can not be use at night or in shady areas. Bad weather, rainy, or foggy days can affect the power output. Also solar energy needs a considerable amount of space depending on the size of your panels. What is the science behind solar energy? The science behind solar energy is the sun contains energy in a form of heat and light. When the sunlight strikes down on Earth, which is then absorb into the solar panels and converted into electricity by a inverter. How is solar energy gathered or created? Solar energy is created by energy from the sun. After the energy is collected by solar panels it can be either be use to store in batteries or convert it to a form we can use. How is solar energy stored for later use? solar enegy is stored in batteries, these energy can be later use in a solar electric system that can provide a back-up power if a storm or power outages occurs. It can also be a main resource if all the fossil fuel supply run out. What are the waste by-product of solar energy? The only know waste by-products of solar energy are toxic waste stream from the production of the semi conductor material from which the panels are made. What is keeping solar energy from widespread use? The cost to install and the price of solar panels are keeping widespread use of solar energy. When is solar energy expected to be easily accessible to the general public? Right now solar energy is easily accessible to the general public but the price of using solar energy is to expensive and causley for people to use. People in articels say that once we use up all of are fossil fuels. Solar energy would go down in prices and might end up being a main resource of energy to use in the future. Agricenter Solar Farm The Agricenter solar farm was created by Phil Bredesen and William Gillon. The cost of the solar farm was $3.5-$4 million. It has over 4,000 solar panels and would produce about $360,000 electricity worth a year to help save energy. Bryan Nguyen References darvill.clara.net
