An Easy Meaning Of Integrated Photovoltaic System?
I Know It'S Put Into Buildings To Go Green, I Was Wondering If It Had Anything To Do With Solar Panels.
You may be referring to Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV). This is where solar panels act as part of the structure of the building in addition to producing electricity. Something like solar shingles or perhaps on awning made of solar panels.
Is Solar Energy Completely Clean?
1) Does Solar Energy Have Any Potentially Environmentally Harmful Bi-Products (In The Making Of The Panels, Actual Work Of Exciting The Electrons, Or Creating/Storing/Using The Subsequent Electricity)?
2) How Long Does Each Panel Last? Do Panels Need To Be Replaced, And If So, How Often?
3) Are The Panels Recyclable?
4) If Solar Energy Is A Completely &Quot;Clean&Quot; Or Nearly &Quot;Clean,&Quot; Why, In Your Opinion, Isn'T There More Of A Push To Replace &Quot;Dirty,&Quot; Non-Renewable Energy Sources With Solar Energy? What Will It Take To Make Solar Energy More Popular And Wide-Spread?
Some types of panels have many environmentally harmful bi-products, others don't. None emmit anything when capturing the electrons and they don't store or use the electricity- that's a completely different setup that can change from one person to the next.
