Why Solar Panels?
What Are Solar Panels Made Of?
Solar panels are made from solar cells and have a protective layer of glass so the energy can get through but the cells are protected. when all of the cells unite they create a solar panel! Now down below on the left is a picture of a solar panel and on the right a picture of a solar cell.
Solar panels are essential in a community because they use an inexhaustible resource which means it will never run out. When they are not creating energy they are saving energy for cloudy days evenings. They are easily installed onto your roof so you don't have to worry about where to put them. Solar panels are easy to find. They come in a ton of different sizes and shapes, so there always will be a solar panel that is right for your house. Solar panels are one of the cheapest ways to save energy. Even though solar panels on their own are truly expensive but there are advantages from it. It gives you a lifetime supply of free energy.
Bike lane can be very dangerous if they are placed in the wrong area, for example some people want to put a bike lane on King Street, which isn't a good place to put a bike lane because there is not enough room if car wanted to go around a biker safely. So it is very important that you choose where you want to put a bike lane.
Solar panels on schools?
Solar panels on schools, now that's a great idea. Why not? Schools seem to take up a lot of energy. starting with classrooms there are over 20,30,40 maybe even more. Lets not forget about the gym, cafeteria, auditorium etc School use up so much coal and non-renewable items but worse there all powered at one. Imagine a bunch of solar panels on schools in different states we would be saving so much coal. I hope this presentation truly impact not just the school but also you.
All about bike paths!!!!!!!!
Bike paths are essential to Alexandria,VA. In this city, bicyclists deserve proper room or space to bike freely. What this means is that they should have their own space instead of biking with the cars. If they bike with the cars, sometimes it is dangerous & bicyclists ride on sidewalks and interrupt pedestrians.
