94% of Americans feel its important to use solar energy.

Wake up members of congress, we’re heading deep into an energy crisis, and Americans are sick of the lack of support for renewable energy, according to SCHOTT Solar Barometer , an independent poll was conducted across all party lines (democrats, republicans and independents). The results clearly favored that American clearly want to develop and use solar energy. The majority of the respondents agreed that the use of Solar Energy is vital to the future of the United States and should be the federal government’s TOP priority. The respondents were asked if they were President, which energy source would they support, and the answers were overwhelmingly favored towards solar and wind power, In fact 20 times more favored than coal. So, why is there such a great disconnect from what the people want and what congress is doing? The renewable energy investment tax credit is expiring at the end of this year and Bush has threated to veto it if the tax credit is extended for renewable energy. With rasing energy prices and our slumping economy, renewable energy not only lowers our energy expenses and helps us become more energy indepedent but it keeps jobs at home, it situmlates our economy here at home. If you reseach how Germany came out of their last recession, it was by investing in their renewable energy program which created jobs and pulled the country out of a recession. Now Germany is the world leader in renewable energy, moving forward this was the best move they could have made due to the power play for energy...

Unleashing solar power to the people.

Dave McCoy, Founder of the Unleash Power for the People, a Non-Profit organziation helping schools in developing nations with their electrical needs, is soon headed to Banquet, Philippines to donate an off-grid solar power system to a school that has never had access to power. The 1.5 kilowatt offgrid solar panel system will provide the school with at least 30 years of clean green power. GoGreenSolar.com worked closely with the Unleash Power for the People organization to help design and package a system that meets the target budget of the organization and help the non-profit with its logical issues. This is a great project for GoGreenSolar.com to be involved in because it has such a great impact around the world. According to Dave, through this first project, they have recieved interest from schools all over the world who have no access to power. The organization is developing chapters from all over the world to keep up with the demand of schools that need power. The organization has raised $8,300 of its target of $20,000, although since Dave is so commited to his mission of helping schools and a sucessful first project, he is personally making a donation to cover the rest of the balance to make the project a realitity. His dedication to helping the unfortunate and renewable energy is commendable! Solar Power systems make an excellent donation not only because they allow people to experience what we take for granted, reliable power, but help the people learn about an important skill of sustainbility. With the world in a power play for energy resouces helping the future realize the benefits of solar panels and clean energy in general can be on of the best investments we can make for the future of human kind. If you want to help the organziation reach its charitbale goals, donate...

IBM – From Trash to Solar Power Gold

Big Blue, the king of manufacturing computer processors and cooling silicon based computer chips has turned a wasteful process into gold. As you may know that the semiconductor industry uses massive amounts of silicon, a critical element that a solar panel is made up of to turn sunlight into electricity. According to their press release, IBM estimates that approximately three million silicon wafers worldwide are scrapped each year by the semiconductor industry – representing a significant solar recycling opportunity: 3 million wafers: Stretch for 375 miles if placed end-to-end Cover 22.5 acres of area Weigh 187.5 tons Generate 13.5 megawatts of solar energy Produce 57 million kilowatt hours in solar panels (12-hour day x 365 days) Power 6,000 houses (9,500 kWh per year per house) One of the primary reasons the cost of solar panels are so high is scarcity of refined silicon. Since silicon is such a highly demanded substance, there is not enough refinery capacity to keep up with demand. IBM has developed a process to recuperate wasted silicon and turn them into solar cells! They’re turning trash into solar power, how innovative for a computer company. It seems like these days the most talented companies and minds in the business world are jumping into the solar power industry to propel the industry to new heights.

Energy efficiency hits the Famous Santa Monica Pier ferris wheel

Aside from the fact that the Santa Monica Pier ferris has been a staple of Los Angeles, they don’t call it famous for nothing. The ferris wheel has been featured in Hollywood hit movies, music videos and is not only the most famous ferris wheel in the world but its the most energy efficient. Its the only solar powered ferris wheel in the entire world, Santa Monica has an abundance of solar resources, pacific park understands how to take advantage of solar power and now energy efficiency. Solar Panels that power the ferris wheel is old news, but the recent upgrade to LED bulbs that light up the ferris wheel is now saving the pacific park even more money by reducing their power consumption. Becoming more energy efficient now allows the ferris wheel to maximize on its solar power system more effectively. Combining solar panels with energy efficiency lighting is the best value a solar power system can offer but very rarely accomplished. If you’re considering solar panels, pairing up LED lighting with a solar electric system can be one of the best moves you can make. LED lights have a lifetime of over 10 years, do not contain harmful mercury like CFL light bulbs and use the faction of power a CFL or Incandescent uses. LED lights produce less heat and have a brighter output compared to older lighting technology. LED is the future of lighting and the famous Santa Monica Pier is leading the...

Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies

Cal Poly Pomona (a California state university) has a hidden diamond in the rough called the John T. Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies. We did some investigating at the facility that has lost funding to continue to conduct research. Its unbelievable that such a great engineering school with the solar energy resources on their campus doesn’t take maximum benefit of such a facility. Imagine if students could get hands on training for solar power right on campus, training the future in solar power is an integral part of the industry’s advancement and core element for the USA to become energy independent. According to the center’s website, “The mission of the Lyle Center is to advance the principles of environmentally sustainable living through education, research, demonstration and community outreach. The term “regenerative” describes processes that restore, renew or revitalize their own sources of energy and materials, creating sustainable systems that integrate the needs of society with the integrity of nature. Located on 16 acres (6.5 ha) within the Cal Poly Pomona University campus, the Center researches and demonstrates a wide array of regenerative strategies, including low-energy architecture, energy production technology, water treatment, organic agriculture, ecological restoration and sustainable community development.” The center had a concentrated solar panel system. this solar panel looks different because it has mirrors that magnify the suns light and forces more light into the solar panels making them more efficient. Its a more cost effective way to reduce the cost of solar panels although has its draw backs due to overheating issues. A dusty old solar panel tracking system, I did’nt notice it move and there was a lot of dirt on the solar panels, The system did’nt look like they were in operation from what we could tell. Solar Panel and Wind Power hybrid system sitting up on the hill. The wind turbine was an older model, it made a whining sound as the turbines rotated. It was a great day to be checking out the wind generator because there was wind really give it a kick. Solar Panels covered in weeds! Hey Cal Poly Pomona, if you don’t want those solar panels, I’ll put them to good use A sterling engine, or whats left of it, this is an amazing machine when its operating it has the potential to create utility scale power. We wonder why California isn’t reaching its 1 million solar roof top fast enough, when we have California state universities dropping the ball on renewable energy we truly realize the severity of the energy crisis America faces today. If you want to help or want to learn more about this great...
