Now a Chinese energy company said they were building the world's first solar panel farm that looked like giant pandas, the country's national treasures. The solar farm, located in Datong, northern China's Shanxi Province, was connected to the grid on June 29. The 248-acre solar farm was designed to look like a cute panda. The black sections are monocrystalline silicon (the light-absorbing part of most solar panels) while the white parts are
Ever wonder if the benefits of installing solar panels will outweigh the costs? Curious as to how much solar exposure those panels would even get on your roof? Google’s latest sun map looks to answer those exact questions for solar proponents. The endeavor comes as a part of Google’s commitment to renewable energy. It’s been very public with its plans to be entirely carbon neutral from here on out. The
MIT professor David Wilson developed a new solar powered energy technology that will bring a solar cooker that functions at night. This invention will significantly benefit developing nations who depend on wood for cooking. Unfortunately, our grills are harmful to the environment. Whether you use wood chips, charcoal, or propane, it releases emissions and creates poor air quality. Up until now, solar-powered cookers needed to the sun in order to
If you can keep your gaze off the hilltops, imagine away the pylons and forget the occasional tractor of an uncertain vintage coughing along the narrow roads, little appears to have changed in the valleys of north-eastern Portugal for decades, perhaps even centuries. But look up, past the villages, the clumps of stout ponies and the wolf-haunted forests of pine, oak and eucalyptus, and the harbingers of a renewable energy revolution are
Solar power in the US has had a rocky existence. Ever since Ronald Reagan symbolically removed Jimmy Carter’s solar panels from the White House roof in 1986, federal policy has been unpredictable, such that manufacturers and consumers could never depend on reliable incentives to produce and install solar energy systems. Remarkably, the US solar energy industry is now entering what may be its most prosperous decade ever, thanks to a new
