Welcome to the Elements Capital Group News Network, I'm Elora Murray. When it comes to solar energy, many people want to make the switch but aren't sure if they can afford it. So, today we are going to talk about the truth behind the cost of solar power. In 2013, the average 5kilowatt solar PV system cost under 23 thousand dollars to install.Solar financing options allow some homeowners to pay little, or no, upfront costs.Homeowners then repay their lowinterest loan on a monthly schedule.Currently, families with solar can save over 20 thousand dollars over the next 20 years.In most areas, homeowners can pay.
Solar powered air conditioning
Music playing Narrator Over 50 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions you produce in your home are generated by heating, air conditioning and hot water. In other words keeping your home warm in winter, cool in summer with nice hot water on tap is emitting 2.5 to 5 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year. It also contributes a hefty amount to your electricity bill, between 50 to 60 percent. CSIRO has invented a new solar air conditioning system for Australian homes. This technology solution will reduce Australia's emissions, reduce your energy.
Bills and reduce our demand for electricity and gas. If every home in Australia installed our solar cooling technology it would be the equivalent of saving 15 mega tonnes of CO2 or taking 3.5 million cars off the road. CSIRO's solar air conditioning is an innovative three in one technology that provides hot water, cooling and heating. It uses only a fraction of the electricity of current systems and halves greenhouse gas emissions. The process begins with a typical solar hot water system. Water is heated by solar panels and stored in the hot water tank.
This solar hot water can then be used throughout the home, reducing the need for gas or electricity. A portion of the hot water is diverted into CSIRO's new solar air conditioning unit, which is divided into two compartments. The hot water enters a heat exchanger in the first compartment of the unit. Similar to a car radiator the heat exchanger uses the hot water to heat outside air that has been drawn into the first compartment through the vent. At the same time outside air is also being drawn into the second compartment into a desiccant wheel.
The desiccant wheel is the most critical part of the system. It is used to dry out the air before it goes into the house. Slowly turning the desiccant material in the wheel continuously absorbs moisture in the second compartment and then the absorbent material dries out in the first compartment. The desiccant material is dried out using the hot dry air generated by the heat exchanger. This air is then exhausted outside the home. The dry air from the desiccant wheel flows through an indirect evaporative cooler which creates a stream of cool dry air.
Prepping For Power Outages Top 10 Things You Need For Surviving Blackouts In Comfort
Today on Repairs101 were going to look at a list Ive been compiling of some of the most important things to have on hand when the power goes out winter or summer. Im going to start off with water because its the most fundamental key to staying alive. Next is food that doesnt require refrigeration or cooking and, hey! Dont forget about your friends. A good rule of thumb is to have three different ways to start a fire available to you. If youre lucky or smart enough to have a fireplace make sure you have a jag of wood.
And or lumber to burn. A hearth doesnt do much if all you have to burn in it are candles. If youre going to try the Flower Pot Heater, be sure and see my tutorial from last week. They work OK except youll need about ten of them to heat a small room. Same goes for lanterns. Make sure you have a good supply of fuel. Invest in a decent First Aid Kit. You only need to use it once for it to pay for itself. You can never have too many flashlights unless you forget to stock up on batteries.
I want to mention that you can use barbeques and camp stoves outside to make coffee and cook supper on no matter what time of year it is as long as you have fuel to burn. These Space Blankets used with your own bedding and secured using some duct tape or masking tape can make a huge difference in the quality of your sleep. As can sleeping with a hat or better yet a balaclava on. Fresh and clean socks, underwear and whatever else you plan on wearing. Im not here to judge. A radio with a crank generator and a backup.
Kentuckys first solar power facility coming to Mercer County
BLUEGRASS STATE. KENTUCKY UTILITIES AND LOUISVILLE GAS AND ELECTRIC ARE TEAMING UP. TO CREATE A SOLAR POWER FACILITY. IN MERCER COUNTY. IT ISN'T UP AND RUNNING JUST YET. BUT OUR MIKE LINDEN GOT A LOOK AT THE PLANS TODAY. HE TELLS US HOW MUCH POWER. LEADERS THINK THEY WILL GET FROM THE FACILITY. IN A STORY THAT'S NEW AT NEW AT 530. SOT We've been coalpowered electricity for more than 100 years but things are changing. TRACK While electricity produced from coal and water isn't going anywhere, Kentucky Utilities and Lousiville Gas and Electric are.
Looking toward the future. The first solar power facility in Kentucky is coming to Mercer County this spring. SOT It's more than a pilot project. It is a project that will be generating electricity into our system. Once it's online, it's online. TRACK Feltham says 45,000 solar panels will be installed on the 52 acre plot next month. KU officials estimate the panels could produce 10 megawatts of electricity enough to provide energy to 1,500 homes a month. STANDUP KU officials say while solar energy is cleaner than energy produced by coal and even.
Water, they say water is ten times more effective than at producing energy than solar panels. TRACK While KU doesn't have plans to expand beyond the first facility in Mercer County, Feltham says solar energy could one day overtake coalfired energy. SOT At this point we're not convinced that that's going to happen but we do want to experiment with it and find out if it really will work. TRACK In Mercer County, Mike Linden, WKYT. KU OFFICIALS SAY WHILE SOLAR ENERGY PRODUCTION IS GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. RIGHT NOW, IT IS.
Meet Isaac Cunningham of Wholesale Solar
My name is Isaac Cunningham and I do Sales for Wholesale Solar. And one of the things I really like about my job is that I get to talk to new and different people all over the country every day and to help them understand and hopefully install a solar panel system for their own home. So this is my gridtie system. I have about seven kilowatts up on my rooftop and this is the disconnect and meter showing that the system is producing a lot more than I am using. It's producing about 5,000.
Watts right now and feeding it almost entirely back into the grid. I have an electric bill about six dollars a month the system went up really fast. I spent a Saturday putting up the racking system and it took about an hour for me and five friends to install all 30 solar panels. The benefit I see from having solar power on the house is that I'm not contributing to the greenhouse gases that are going into the air. I get to say I'm using clean power from the Sun.
