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.
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.

Extreme Solar Flare Headed For Earth
MUSIC gtgt Trish Hey guys, welcome back to Sourcefed, I'm Trisha Hershberger gtgt Joe and I'm Joe Bereta gtgt Trisha Joe, let's be happy gtgt Joe I am happy. gtgt Trisha I'm happy you're happy now because one day the sun's gonna explode and we're all gonna die. gtgt Joe You mean one day the human race is gonna get so shitty that we blow ourselves up and die. gtgt Trish Or that. But in case we do die from the sun, you should be aware that solar storms happen pretty often, and while they look terrifying.
In these pictures gtgt Joe Terrifyingly awesome!!! gtgt Trish Oh yeah they normally don't harm people. gtgt Joe Trish said normally because as we speak a huge solar flare is heading right at us, an extreme xclass which is the biggest class by the way magnetic explosion happened on the face of the sun last night right in our direction. gtgt Trish So what does this mean for us We're fucked. We're totally, unabashedly fucked. I'm just kidding! We'll probably get hit by the cloud of energized, magnetized plasma the explosion gave off but not actual sun bits. The solar storm plasma can disrupt Earth's.
Magnetic sphere, affecting power grids, radio transmissions, and could potentially damage satellites. gtgt Joe Experts do not know when the storm will hit or what part of our planet it will affect. And even thought we are poking fun today, solar flares are serious business. Solar experts predict that if we saw activity like there was in 1921 and 1859, it would destroy the entire US electrical grid causing more than 2 trillion dollars in damage and taking over a year to repair. gtgt Trisha Oh boy. But since there's really nothing we can do about it, enjoy the expanded.
Solar Oven Cooking Experiment with Preparedness Pro
Ok, it's about 11 o'clock in the morning. I could have done this earlier. And all I've done is, I've just taken a frozen ham and as you can see it's rock solid here. Frozen ham and a couple of frozen logs of sausage, and I've put them in my solar oven. And now I'm going to make sure that the shadowing on either side of the solar oven is equal. And it is. See my little shadow line there. And then I'm going to put the cover on it, and the reflector oven, and just let it cook, for about 4 hours or so, while I get all my.
Other, other housework done today. Okay, solar oven. Okay. We lost our sunlight about 45 minutes ago, and yet you can still see all the heat circulating in there. I'm going to carefully open this up, 'cause there's going to be some steam coming out. It's still got some warmth to it. And let's take a look at what we've got here. Need a hot pad. Okay. I put absolutely no water in there. See all the liquid that's in there, the sausage. And, the ham is completely cooked. Again, no water was added to it. Just perfect. In fact, if.
It wasn't for the casing, it would be falling apart. Okay, so here's the ham I cooked. You can see how, oops, I better switch hands. You can see how absolutely tender it is. Sometimes when you cook ham awhile, it gets really tough. But this is just beautifully tender and moist. Okay, so here's the sausage loaf. And I just cut off a couple of pieces. Instead of having to fry the pieces individually, I just cook the whole thing at a time and then I'm just slicing it. And it's just all tender in there. And you'll also notice all of the oil that got.
