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.
The first panels ever created are still functioning. It depends on how you take care of them, but most are warrantied for 20-25 years and can expect to produce basically the same amount of power for 30-40 years.
They are recyclable, but most companies haven't build recycling plants for them yet.
Better storage of the energy produced, lower upfront prices, and higher grid prices. There is currently no way someone renting an apartment or house can make their money back before they will probably move, so it isn't cost effective for them to install solar.
Most solar installation companies don't really know the physics of how it works either.
