Pictured is Mini-E #183 “Sungas,and 6 Sunpower 230W Photo voltaic Panels.
If we are able to still use the term “horsepower,” we will still use the term “gas station,though energy station can be a significantly better description.
I am very excited to be driving an electric automotive, what I’m much more excited about is the potential in the future for a lot of or most Individuals to have the ability to generate their own “gasat residence by way of wind or solar.
Our future as a country is a zero emission vitality supply, zero emission homes and a zero emission transportation fleet, a clear energy future that’s each wealth producing and less polluting than refined crude oil or pure gasoline.
Here’s what that future looks like.
These six Sunpower solar panels provide the vitality required to drive my electric car 12,000 miles a yr.
These six photo voltaic panels will change 12,000 gallons of gas during the subsequent 25 years of driving, and can continue producing vitality beyond the 25 yr warranty period.
These six panels will present a complete fastened cost of “Gasof fifty cents a gallon for the next 25 years with no escalation in worth.
These six panels price the identical as three.5 years of purchasing gas to your automotive.
These six panels produce no emissions producing electricity, these 12,000 gallons of refined crude oil, generate emissions from the extraction, transport, refining and supply of the gasoline.
These six panels sitting on an current roof, silently manufacture and convey electricity to the automotive within the garage 50 toes away.
Those 12,000 gallons of refined crude oil, from the ground are conveyed from 1000’s of miles away, the pipeline to hold it to the port, to carry it to the tanker, to hold it throughout oceans to the refinery, to hold it to the gasoline truck, to hold it to the station, to hold it to the pump, to carry it to a automotive. A conveyance system of several thousand miles, a conveyance system of our planet to our next technology that’s more polluted, more toxic and more barren of natural sources.
After 2500 miles of driving Mini-E #183, 70% freeway, 30% metropolis, the automotive is averaging 3.5 miles per kwh. My annual driving is roughly 12,000 miles which would require 3425Kwh of power.
These six panels complete a 1.38 kw solar p.v. system. This size system generates 2200 kwh of vitality per 12 months. This generation through the peak interval (32cents kwh) would equal the price for the 4400kw off peak charging (16cents kwh) tremendously exceeding the annual utilization of the electric automotive.
Photo voltaic charging provides the additional advantages of technology at peak occasions, thus lowering the need of costly peaker plants, and charging in the course of the evening when electricity is still being generated in present energy plants, but is wasted as a result of it isn’t used or saved.
Imagine if “Sun Gascould possibly be the fuel of the long run for our homes and automobiles. It may be, it is and it’s nice.
