Solar Energy PPT
Transcript of Solar Energy PPT
Captured though solar panels
and converts the light to heat.
in the steam
industries and homes.
wired into solar panels
, wired to a
sun strikes silicon cells
generate electric currents
connected to external load and
Multiple cells connected to each other form an array of cells called solar panels.
Those solar panels are connected to
to form PV array
Solar Power Usage
.2 % of the United States uses solar energy
The top five countries utilizing solar energy are Germany , Italy , China , USA, and Japan
California is a nationally leading state and
all other states
is utilizing two times the capacity of
Prices per kilowatt hour
$1.29 per watt.
10 kWh= 10,000 watts- $12,900
-If you generate 1 kW of power for one hour, you have generated one kWh of energy.
15 kWh= 15,000 watts- $19,350
5 kWh= 5,000 watts- $6,450
Additional for wires, hardware, batteries, installations, etc. =
Electricity for free
Sell electricity to utility companies.
Increases home value by 20,000$ and 100,000$ for businesses
Ensure economic security
Supply increase=Lowers electricity cost
Slow/stops Global Warming
Energy derived from the sun
Lowers the demands for fossil fuels.
Reduces emissions of toxic gas due to fossil fuel burning
Space missions use solar energy to power spaceships since 1958!
Sun is 90 million miles away. But the light speed only takes around 10 minutes
Air Force base in Nevada has saved $83,000 A MONTH since it switched
Used for over 2700 years; in 700 BC
Cook food, heat and cool homes, warm water and light buildings.
