Overview of the Solar Energy sector in India
India has a vast supply of green energy resources, and has a significant program for deploying these resources. An exclusive ministry for renewable energy called Ministry of Non-conventional Energy Sources later renamed as Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNES) has also been set up.
According to the recent report on Renewable Energy in India from www.india-reports.com, http://www.india-reports.com/summary/energy.aspx …
Duke Energy Corp. (DUK), a U.S. utility that operates 986 megawatts of wind-energy capacity, selected Xtreme Power Inc. to design and install the world’s largest power-storage system linked to a wind farm.
The 36-megawatt storage system is expected to cost $44 million and will go into operation in the third quarter of 2012, Charlotte, North Carolina-based Duke said in an e-mailed statement.
The system will retain power generated when demand is low and can be tapped when electricity consumption is highest or the wind is not blowing. It will make the 153-megawatt Notrees wind farm in west Texas a more reliable source of …
Installing and Maintaining a Small Electric Wind System
With proper installation and maintenance, a small wind electric system should last up to 20 years or longer.
Before installing your system, you first need to do the following:
- Find the best site
- Size your wind turbine
- Decide whether you’ll have a grid-connected or stand-alone system
- Understand your local zoning, permitting, and neighborhood covenant requirements.
The manufacturer/dealer should be able to help you install your small wind electric system. Many people …
Harnessing the power of the sun’s ray to create energy to power our house is very appealing. But the question is, “Is everything about solar energy good?”
Looking at the current price of fossil fuel-based electricity, it is quite impractical to convert into solar energy system. However, with the growing concern on the state of the earth, there is really a need to find other means of energy aside from what power plants are using right now. Where do you place yourself?
Whether you are an advocate of clean energy or simply care about where your finances go, …
How do residential wind turbines work?
A wind turbine, which is installed on top of a tall tower, collects kinetic energy from the wind and converts it to electricity that is compatible with a home’s electrical system.
In a normal residential application, a home is served simultaneously by the wind turbine and a local utility. If the wind speeds are below cut-in speed there will be no output from the turbine and …
The White Oak wind farm, a $250 million project, is coming up along the McLean-Woodford County lines in Illinois, USA. The 100-turbine wind farm will be located on farmland in McLean County in central Illinois. This is a project that has been in the works for a number of years now and has, at times, been controversial with opposition coming up against the idea at the start.
The White Oak wind farm is being developed by Chicago-based Invenergy LLC -the sixth largest owner of wind generation assets in the United States …
Solar Power Systems: Why Install Now
Solar power systems come in two basic forms: hot water and photovoltaic. It is important to understand each before deciding which system to install or possibly install both.
Solar Hot Water Systems:
Capturing Free Heat from the Sun
Anyone who has ever left a garden hose out in the summer sun knows that the water gets very hot. Now, imagine capturing that same power from the sun with a system that collects and stores the heated water so you can use it all year long. That is the basic idea behind solar hot water. In fact, the average …
Solar Power Inverter
The solar inverter is a critical component in a solar energy system. It performs the conversion of the variable DC output of the Photovoltaic (PV) module(s) into a clean sinusoidal 50- or 60 Hz AC current that is then applied directly to the commercial electrical grid or to a local, off-grid electrical network. Typically, communications capability is included so users can monitor the inverter and report on power and operating conditions, provide firmware updates and control the inverter grid connection. Depending on the grid infrastructure wired …
Here’s one way of making sure the traffic light is always “green”: a team of researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is working on a three-year green energy project that would use wind and solar energy to power street and traffic lights, while integrating excess electricity into the municipal power grid.
Last year, a small wind generator was installed at an intersection in …
Generators deliver consistent power for recreation, industrial and residential home use. Inconsistent brownouts and blackouts are becoming gradually conventional in numerous parts of any country so the need an emergency backup power system is highly in demand. There are a lot of types of generators available in hardware stores. These include diesel generators, propane and natural gas generators, gasoline generators, liquefied petroleum gas generators, and solar generators. All these have the same purpose but differs in fuel type, fuel usability, price, voltage range, and portability.
Most individuals prefer …
