Transcript of Alternative Energy Sources Assignment (Solar Power & Hydro Power)

#1.What is an alternative
energy source? #2.How does this alternative energy
source get it's power?
(Explain the source of it's energy) #5.List and describe the disadvantages of using this energy source? #3.How is this energy transformed into usable energy? #4.List and describe the advantages of using this source. #6.Where is this alternative energy source commonly used? Is North Carolina using this energy source? #7.Is this a renewable or nonrenewable source? Yes Hydro power is a renewable source because rainfall renews the reservoir and allows it to have a decent amount of water some people fear that they will run out of water #8.What does conservation
mean? #10.How does using this energy
affect the environment? Hydro Power I learned is an alternative energy source and a pretty bad one too it causes a lot of environmental damage and can kill fish and many wildlife Hydro Power Solar Power Alternative Energy Sources Hydro Power Hydro Power uses flowing water to create energy that can be captured and turned into electricity
that we can use to power cities and other towns also building's. -Fuel is not burned so there is minimum pollution
-Water to run the power plant is provided free by nature
-Relatively low operations and maintenance costs
-It's Renewable-rainfall renews the water in the reservoir,so the fuel is almost always there This alternative energy source is commonly used in:
China
Brazil
Canada
The United States
Based on the research I did I found that apparently no, North Carolina does not use this source What is Solar Power?
Solar Power is an alternative energy
source that generates electricity by converting solar energy from the sun through solar panels. It is of low construction, but cost a lot for one time installation. If not disposed of properly can damage the ecosystem. We were assigned to use 2 energy sources and look up information on them then make a presentation on the 2 energy sources we chose and then say which is better and why it is better then the other This energy is transformed through a big machine called
an electric generator -High investments
-Hydrology Independent (precipitation
and a lot of environmental problems Conservation is the act of conserving something in particular. #9.How can this energy source be conserved? Is conservation necessary? This energy source can be conserved I think but I do not think conservation is necessary Using this energy affects the environment significantly it can harm wild life and destroy or affect natural river systems may also kill off numeral wild life populations #1.What is an alternative energy source? Solar Power #2.How does this alternative energy source get its power?
(Explain the source of its energy) Solar Power uses solar panels to create energy.The Solar panel collect the sun's rays and turns them into usable energy. #3.How is this energy transformed
into usable energy? Solar panels turn the sunlight into energy. They light goes through a complex system in the panel and is turned into useable energy. #4.List and describe the advantages of using this source. - There is a lack of pollution to the Earth
- The only pollution that can be caused by this source is if not disposed correctly and when the
panel is made.
-Save on electric bills
-One-time installation #5.List and describe the
disadvantages of using this energy
source? - The cost for installing is expensive
-This power source is only useful when
the sun is shining
-Only certain areas can have this energy
source. #6.Where is this alternative energy
source commonly used? Is North
Carolina using this energy source? This Alternative Energy Source is used in:
Japan
Asia
Germany
Spain
Europe is the main user if this energy.
Yes, North Carolina does use this source. #7.Is this a renewable or nonrenewable source? Yes this source is renewable.
It is not commonly renewed,
but it can be. #8.What does conservation mean? Conservation is the act of conserving something in particular. #9. How can this energy source be conserved? Is conservation necessary? This energy source cab be conserved, but it is not necessary to. If wanted,
you can conserve it. #10. How does using this energy source affect the environment? Using this energy source affects the environment by taking land space, though it only needs a little room and is placed in areas like the desert. And it could hurt the environment if its
metals are disposed of properly. Start
Of
Discussion #1. Which Energy Source Should We Use? #2. Why Should We Use This Energy Source? #3. What Are The Benefits Of Using This Energy Source? #4. Why Is This Energy Source Better Than The One We Didn't Choose? End
Of
Discussion We should use Solar Power because, it does not cause as much harm to the environment as hydro power does. We should use Solar Power -Its cheaper than hydro
-It causes very little harm to the environment
-You save money on electricity This energy source was better than the one we didn't choose because it costs less and does not harm the environment. It cause little damage as seen in the videos. This is why we chose Solar Power to be the best. #5. What did we learn from this assignment? What were we surprised about and what did we already know? Alternative Energy Sources By: Hannah Harwick & Ariel Drewry We learned that there is a lot more solar power used in this world than we thought. We learned that hydro power sucks pretty badly. We knew that they were usable sources, but not where they were used. This is actually me and Ariel: Ariel: Hannah: This is us Together: Ariel & Hannah:
