Solar Air Conditioners

At the beginning of the video explains how air conditioners only make heat waves worse. There is a solar fix though, solar engineer Les Hamasaki at the Debs Park Audubon Environmental Center in Los Angeles describes how we can solve this problem. With his invention the hotter it gets outside the cooler it can become inside. It can boil water,sterilize and even desalinate contaminated water. With this invention there would be no need for power plants! It's truly amazing!

Solar Siding

The day has finally come. Solar siding is a reality.
Solar air heating system is a metal consisting of aluminum or steel cladding, that is installed on the south-facing wall of a building. The system operates in a very simple manner using economical and environmentally-benign solar energy to heat buildings. The dark-colored metal cladding is heated by solar radiation. Ventilation fans located at the top of the wall create a negative pressure in the cavity between the cladding and the building. Outside air is drawn through tiny holes in the Solarwall and is heated by the metal panels. Air rises in the cavity to a plenum at the top of the wall. The incoming warm air is ducted to the nearest fan. Warm, fresh air is distributed throughout the building.

Solarwall is the world's largest solar air heating system.
This unique solar system even reduces the loss of heat in winter by capturing the escaping air with incoming air and pushing it back into the building. This also remains true at night time when heat loss occurs as well.
In the summer, the Solarwall system works by preventing solar radiation from hitting the south side of the building. Hot air naturally rises so the hot air trapped between the wall and the Solarwall rises to the top of the building where it is vented out. Fresh, cool air is drawn in by dampers to keep the building cool. Because of the fresh air constantly entering the building, Solarwall increases the air quality and overall health conditions for the facility.

  • operating efficiency of up to 75% rated by both the Canadian and US governments
  • on a sunny day, the temperature can raise anywhere from 30° to 76° F (16° to 40° C) depending on flow rate
  • the cost of this solar heating system when being constructed is usually less than the cost of a brick wall or even a metal-clad wall
  • even on cloudy days, the Solarwall provides significant energy savings as a preheating system for ventilation air
  • a typical installation produces 50 to 70 kwh/ft2 (500 to 700kWh/m2)
  • energy savings of $1 to $6/ft2 ( $10 to $60/m2) during the heating season; if the Solarwall is utilized for process air heating, the savings are even greater
  • the economic benefits according to the Federal Express distribution center in Colorado indicate that savings will be $12,000 US annually, and that 254,000 pounds (115,000 kilograms) of carbon dioxide emissions will not be released into the atmosphere

Solar Farm Grows on Florida Campus

The largest (16 Acres)solar farm plant in any university should be operational the end of Nov. the beginning of Dec. Costing about $40,000,000 it should save in the long run.
There is some controversial of why 16 acres where cut down for this project but the university is saying that these trees where going to be cut down anyway. Watch the video and make your own opinion.

Solar Power Shines - Bloomberg

China is really going solar and there stocks are showing it. China plans to invest $293 billion in Alternative Energy through 2020. I wish the American government would see this and try to do a little more "OR A LOT!!!".

Solar Power Water Heating

Something you don't hear enough about is solar water heaters. It can heat your pool to all your house water. And it is ran a little different then using solar panels.

Solar power water heaters are more of a direct approach to the sun basically it is ran to tubing that is in direct contact with the sun where the water is heated and filtered back to your system.

This is all so the easiest and cheapest self set up for solar, a lot of people are making these set ups at home for very little cost.

Here is a video on a good set up for the heating the water.

This should be set up somewhere on top of your house or where it gets a lot of sun.

Now that you have got the heating water system, you need to have it run to you hot water pipes. You all so would want a instantiated water tank to store and use. In this next video is gives you a demonstration on how this works

I all so recommend water sealing and insulating all the pipes going to and from your solar water system.

Grid Tie Inverters

Grid tie converters take your solar energy and converts it to match the energy that is being used in your house(DC to AC). It all so can feed energy back into the the electric company and will actually lower your meter but you may want to cheek local laws for your areas on this subject. Using a grid tie converter can save you the hassle of having an electrician come in to rewire every thing to match what your solar power is bringing in. One drawback is that if you loss power from the electric company the converter will shut down but if you have back up batteries charged this can hold you through this time lets say at night or a cloudy day when your not getting enough energy from your solar system. I recommend you keep track of the waits that you are using in your household before investing in a converter. While looking on ebay I found a 1000 Watt grid-tie inverter...Mppt Tracking for $1,189.00.
Here is a very informative video on grid tie inverters and what they do and how they work.


Well I like the fact in the video that he demonstrated running the grid tie converter but to bad it was a cloudy day I would like to have seen it run directly off his solar panels instead of car batteries.

APS Solar Power Plant

Arizona Public Service Co. (APS) announces plans to build the world's largest solar facilities. 280 megawatt (MW) concentrating solar power (CSP) plant to be built 70 miles southwest of Phoenix, in Gila Bend, Arizona. The Solana Generating Station will produce enough energy to serve 70,000 APS customers when operating at full capacity. The plant will be built by Abengoa Solar Inc., and is scheduled to provide renewable energy beginning in 2011.
Spanish for "sunny place," Solana will not emit greenhouse gases and will provide APS with more solar electricity per customer than any utility in the U.S. The facility also would be the largest solar power plant in the world if it were in operation today.

University Of Michigan College Of Engineering is trying to get these gadgets used for spying purposes I presume, in times of war.Basically it's a 6″ robotic spy plane that is made similar to a bat, as you can see in this picture above. Known as COM-BAT, it uses a very low-powered miniature radar and a sensitive navigation system to help it find its way even in the dark!
Its power comes from solar energy, wind, vibration and other sources to help keep its battery going. I love technology!

A $10 million dollar grant to the University from the Army is already underway to get this gadget off the ground and flying.

Solar Panels On The Moon?

I caught the end of an episode of "Naked Science" last night about the moon. What I found interesting is that they were talking about using machines to create solar panels right there on its surface. I forget how many miles it would take but they said they could power the entire worlds energy source we use everyday by doing this. Another interesting thing was that they could use radio or some sort of radar to send the energy to the earths surface and receive 80% of the solar power energy. They are hoping to have this in effect by 2020, that would be a great way to use the moon since it appears unoccupied. I tried to find the video on you tube so I could watch it for more facts but was unable to find it, if you come across this video "Inhabiting the moon" (I Think its called), I would say its a must watch.

Solar and Attic Vents With Fans

This solar vent is something I have never thought of. Another great place to put solar panels to generate more energy and save you money in the process.If you can't afford expensive solar panels to cover your whole roof, this may be at least a start.
I was thinking window shutters, window sills or even down spouts would be other things that are soaking in the sun long enough. Through out the day these things that usually just hang on the house, could be doing possibly more by generating energy as well.
We are not too far from this reality.

This is a attic vent with a fan. There is no doubt that the fan can be very helpful. Similar to the Solar vent except it is perfect for removing heat and storing it all at the same time.

Not quite right

These people seemed kind of more full of themselves rather than for anyone else. I for one am not buying it. I'm not certain but it seems to me that this company is full of you know what? They sounded arrogant and pretty much as if they have had life served to them on a silver platter, all their life.
They don't have intentions on helping the planet. They are striving for themselves and no one else.

I could be wrong but if I'am, I invite you to prove it to me...

Green Buildings

Amazing to me what we could do with our buildings to make it still green if we wanted. I think in the future, a lot of buildings should share the fresh air? Get multiple plants that contribute air and we could be getting closer to the future we would want for everyone. If we did this to enough buildings we could provide enough oxygen and possibly save the World that we appreciate everyday.
