Hi, my name is John Burnett. Were on the roof of the HI Miami Beach Hostel right next to our and newly installed solar array. It's right in the heart of South Beach. One block from the beach. One block from Lincoln Road. One block from Espanola Way and half a block from Ocean Drive. It's about as close to the action is gets. That right there generates 10,000 watts every sunny hour there is. There are 42 solar panels. Each panel is 250 watts. Which makes it 10 kilowatt solar system.
That's like a big generator burning gasoline making all this noise. They sit there quietly. There are also 32 SunDrum solar hot water on panels which sit underneath the solar panels Every sunny hour they're doing with that and 10,000 what generator would do just by sitting there quietly The SunDrums here are enough to provide over 1,000 gallons of hot water a day to the customer. N ot only generate electricity using the same panels in the same space on the roof go ahead and heat the water as well. So the PV panels themselves collect the thermal.
Energy and the SunDrum collector underneath it absorbs that thermal energy into a fluid. That fluid is pumped off of the roof and down to two storage tanks in the basement where we heat those storage tanks up when they can get the 120 and 140 in this climate and thats preheating water that will then be delivered to the natural gas boiler that when we're not able to hear it all the way up will top it off and delivered to the hotel. Done by the free sun of Southern Florida.
Amen! Well, I think we have a finite amount of time to consume energy the way we're consuming it. W e live in a and a very large fishbowl but a fishbowl nonetheless and if we keep doing things that are harmful to it's going to catch up to us so it should be our responsibility. I have two small children they live here in Miami Beach and the I don't want Miami Beach to be under water when they're my age. People tune it out they go about their everyday lives.
Installing Solar Panels
Photo voltaic cells are an important focus of our retrofit. The photo voltaic or PV Cells are destined for the garage roof. There is enough space there to accommodate the 1.2 kW array. Current government rebates apply to the installation of the array but rebates are subject to change so you will need to check if you qualify. The panels are mounted on aluminium frames. This is vital to ensure that they are set to the correct angle. In this location it's around 7 degrees. When it is finished we are hoping to generate about 7kwh per day which goes back into the.
Grid. It may even give us some return. The panels are interconnected and the electricity fed through to an inverter. The PV Cells have a life expectancy of more than 25 years and they are virtually maintenance free so you can be assured of getting a good return on your investment. Installing a 1.2 kW array of photovoltaic cells and connecting into the grid is a relatively simple exercise. The finished array looks very neat and in these conditions will be paying its way in no time. Ok, there it is, the photovoltaic's are installed on the roof. They are wired into here, this.
Solar Panel Spotlight
STUART BLOCK One of the things that got me started with this initially was the University's 2025 goal of being a carbon neutral campus.I had actually asked our house mom if I could see our electricity bills and realized we are paying way too much money. JOHN LAWSON We've had projects that initiated and gone down those paths with various other technologies, lighting and some other types but not from a student or a fraternity member and making their house. STUART BLOCK This is only the second solar system installed on a fraternity house in the entire country.
JOHN LAWSON I met Stuart actually via email. He was inquiring how to get solar here on campus and how to do more to participate in energy conservation at his fraternity. STUART BLOCK We talked to them about the potential to get some additional funds to make it a more affordable investment. And they gave us that opportunity to pay back that loan through service hours. JOHN GONOS So our panels generate electricity when the sunlight hits them. The micro inverters on the back convert the DC electricity into AC electricity. That AC electricity is tied.
Directly into the building right on the roadside of the meters. So if the building needs it it'll be used by the building first. The electricity will go to the building first. Any excess will go back through the meter into the grid. STUART BLOCK I think this is definitely really important given the context of time that we're living in. You know, this is the first time that sustainability is really an oppressing issue. It's something that, you know, we all recognize is going to need to happen in the future for us to be more sustainable and sustain.
Solar Power Is Postponed By Petty Politics The Real Ratigan
Solar is the future of American power. Solar is the future of global power. The only question is, 'how long is it going to take' And, the answer that question will be determined by how long American politicians take money from those who are against solar. The irony, of course, is that the biggest resistance for solar the entire country is in Florida and then Arizona, which are two of the sunniest states in the country. Why is that Because money in the political system from fossil fuel companies is directly injecting the the political thinking,.
Brightening Boucan Carr Solar Energy Comes to Haiti
My name is David Crane and I am the CEO of NRG Energy. We are an American power and electricity company. When you look at Haiti's electric system and the importance of electricity to a society, both in terms of the quality of life for people and also the ability to enhance people's ability to make a living, solar power can do an immense amount because the thing that solar power can do that almost every other form of power generation cannot do as well is offgrid solutions. And the grid in Haiti is very weak, and only covers a small part of the country.
Only 12 of the country. So the project that we're doing in Haiti in partnership S.E.L.F, the Solar Electric and Light Fund, is to focus on one region in the country, a region called Boucan Carr. Bob Freling My name is Bob Freling and am the Executive Director of SELF, which is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring solar power to rural villages in developing countries. When this opportunity came along, to partner with NRG, we decided to demonstrate all the ways in which solar energy could enhance the quality of life and.
Improve the education and the health and provide economic opportunities to people living in this remote part of Haiti. David Crane We are trying to bring solar power there and not only provide for public lighting in school like where we are here today, and hospital clinics, and public facilities, but also the means of production, so that people can have a livelihood. Haiti has tremendous potential in terms of agriculture, given the climate and the open space and the water resources but, you need electricity for things like pumps and drip irrigation, and that's part of what our project.
