After a few days in a low-sunshiny place, the surface of the earth starts to look a lot like a gray, cloudy void. The light is still there, but it’s dim.
The earth is one of the few things that the sun can’t move on, so its energy is concentrated in various parts of the earth. It can’t be charged as the sun moves on, but at the moment of its rotation it can’t move on.
This can cause an energy imbalance, and as we’ve seen in the past with earthquakes, when the earth’s surface is tilted and the sun is blocked by a mountain or some other obstruction, the earth’s energy is shifted and comes out of balance. This can be bad for the health and for the environment, but not good for our energy footprint either.
The current government has put in place regulations to limit the amount of energy that can be transmitted from the ground. It is a bit unusual to see government regulation on energy, but its not unheard of for companies to limit our usage of fossil fuels. This is because we use fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) to generate electricity, and we use fossil fuels to generate most of our own energy.
We are currently at the point where we can use less of each of them. In the US, the government has taken measures to limit the amount of energy we use to electricity, and has put in place regulations to limit the amount of energy we use to heat our homes and automobiles. In other places, it is possible to use more of each of the three, but not as much as we are.
However, solar is a lot more common. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, in 2010, the world’s average solar installation was 1.8 megawatts. It is possible to go over that without much trouble by simply increasing the number of solar panels on your roof. But the increased panels must be installed above a certain level of roof height, otherwise the sun will block them. You can go over that though by installing solar panels on your roof in other ways.
That’s why the NREL survey also found that the average residential rooftop solar installation was 1.15 megawatts. That’s a lot more than the average of 0.57 megawatts we found in the previous report, but it’s not as high as the 2.3 megawatts we found in the previous report.
If you want to avoid the dangers of solar panels, we recommend having a solar panel manufacturer come up with a “simplify solar” that you can build from your own materials, including a bit of plastics. A lot of companies are trying to make solar panels that are modular and can be attached to a roof or wall. These panels are made of plastic, and they are expensive.
Not to mention it’s not nearly as efficient. Solar panels are made of copper, a metal that is naturally reflective and produces little heat, so they are not very efficient at converting sunlight into electricity. We’ve seen the energy of sunlight decrease by about 10% for every one square foot of solar panel you may be able to install.
If you want to make a solar panel, it’s best to select a panel with a high surface area to weight ratio, like the ones the company that sells the panels, SolarWorld. That way you don’t have to worry about the panels breaking or getting damaged. On the other hand, the price tag will be much higher, and the panels will be less efficient.
