Solar power is the biggest and fastest growing sector in the renewable energy market as it's expected to become an affordable and feasible alternative to fossil fuels. Korea is making increasing use of this energy source. but it is going to be a global player For this week's Industry Insight, here's Song Jisun. This is the biggest solar power plant in the capital that started operating this summer. It's equivalent to 13 football fields with a capacity of 5point6 megawatts enough for 22hundred households a year. Solar energy is quickly rising as the next.
Generation of renewable energy here in Korea accounting for 98 percent of all renewable power plants built in the first half this year. This solar panel system has been set up on the roof of this waterfiltering plant and we have completed a couple of other solar power facilities like this for the Seoul Metropolitan Government. It's fully operational even on cloudy days and only takes three months to install and operate. The market for these solar facilities is booming in Korea. with most being bulit by government or public agencies. Over the past decade. solar energy has emerged.
As the world's biggest source of renewable energy, overtaking wind power. Last year alone it created half of total electricity generated from renewable energy sources. This prospective market is forecast to expand by 10percent each year by 2030. with China and India likely accounting for half of the global demand. By then, the cost of generating electricity from solar power is expected to reach similar levels to burning fossil fuel meaning it could become more widespread without the support of government subsidies. as it mostly depends on at the moment.
The biggest competition in the industry comes from China which produces 80percent of the global demand. at prices 20 to 30 percent cheaper than Korea. Backed by government support, Chinese companies have been producing well over the market demand. with half of the world's top 10 solar panel producers based in China. It's not easy to counter them in terms of price, so Korean firms must improve their costefficiency, at the same time revving up quality and technology. Around 40 players are in Korea's solar power generating market with small and midsized.
Companies focusing on solar cells or modules. while large conglomerates aim to tackle the global market by equipping a complete chain of production to service. We've established a value chain from solar component production to system maintenance. And we aim to expand the solar power generation infrastructure to even include households. Industry experts point out that it is also crucial the government take steps to speed up growth of the domestic solar power industry. To expand its economy of scale and improve its profitability, they add. Korea needs to ease regulations concerning installation.
Keeping Campus Open and Accessible During Winter Weather Events
We make all of the snow disappear. Shovel sounds That's roughly 90 miles of sidewalk, 300plus buildings. We use saltbrine applications for snow events and ice and then we also use plows, brooms, blowers, whatever we need to get the snow off of the walk. We pretreat the roads and what that allows us to do is put salt on the road that stays on the road so the bond between the snow that falls and the weather that comes in doesn't bond to the roads. so the roads are easier to plow.
Plow sounds We have our bag of ice melt and our snow shovels we will get all of that into a big Brute Barrel that way we can take it from entrance to entrance. We do like to plow the snow off the walk before people walk down so if you see us rushing in front of you that's what we are usually trying to do, clear the path for you. It is a team effort, it does take all of us working together. We have a great staff of people here.
Steps to protect your home from snow and ice

Schrader Valves and Caps AC 101 Kung Fu Maintenance
OK so I charged my unit up here. Everything is running good. You want to listen for any leaks here. I don't here any here at the schrader valves. Schrader valves are the most common place for refrigerant to leak from. Ninety percent maybe eighty five somewhere in there percent of the time that you have a refrigerant leak it is going to be at your schrader valves. So you always want to make sure that you put these schrader valve caps back on. This is like a second gate to keep the refrigerant in the system. Refrigerant never runs out.
In a system unless you have a leak. It's not like a battery where it uses up the energy. It doesn't use up the refrigerant. You should not have to charge the unit in a perfect world but anyway. If you do it is because you have a leak somewhere in the system. Again eighty five percent of the time eighty eighty five whatever. Just making it clear that most of the time your leak is going to be from a schrader valve. Second most common place is in the evaporator coil because the conditions the evaporator runs. It always moist. You know.
