Austin Energy Turns On Largest Solar Project in Texas


A 30 MW solar farm in Webberville, Texas began generating power on December 20, 2011.  The project is the biggest in the viagra uk state, the largest solar project of any utility in the country and buy tramadol 180 one of the largest in the country overall.

The 380-acre Webberville Solar Project contains 127,000 PV panels that track the sun to maximize electricity output.  The project has a 25-year power purchase agreement with Austin Energy, the country's leading utility for renewable energy. This new solar farm will put the utility well on generic levitra in canada its way to getting 35 percent of its portfolio from renewable sources by 2020.

The project is expected to generate 1.4 billion kWh over the first 25 years and prevent the release of 1.6 billion pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere in that same time frame.

Is this for real?
written by Stephen R. Morbley, January 22, 2012
What's with whoever came up with this idea?. Someone actually thinks they can come up with an energy source that will provide 1.4 billion kWh over the next2.5 decades and eliminate 80 million tons of http://nassmc.org/cheapest-viagra-in-uk CO2? This soundslike something one of those wind turbine people
would think. Would any of these people come up with a realistic source for energy? Like clean coal?

It's all in the math....

Solar power has a proven track record. So much so, energy companies are underwriting projects for them.

I have a 216 panel system that can generate 68,000 kilowatts a year. Multiplied by 25, that's 1,700,000 kW. Considering their system is 127,000 panels as opposed to our small 216 panel system, yes a billion kW generation is very possible.

Can you handle math?
written by Phil Goldberg, January 23, 2012
Hey Stephen:
Can you do simple math or is buy generic viagra cheap that asking too much? It's a 30,000,000 Watt array that tracks the sun, meaning that it gets optimal insolation throughout the day. Using a rough estimate of six hours of daylight in that area of Texas (low, but we need to take into account rainy days, times of the day when the sun isn't quite so bright like sunrise and sunset, and other factors) each day for 365 days per year for 25 years yields this simple equation:
30,000,000 watts x 6 hours / day x 365 days / year x 25 years = 1,642,500,000,000 watt hours. Or 1.6 Billion Kilowatt Hours. Factoring in the inefficiency of inverters, transmission losses, dust on the panels and everything else and perhaps we're down to 1.4 Billion Kilowatt hours as the article describes.

As for the CO2, it's hard to be exact, but let's use your clean coal suggestion. Coal is estimated to produce about 800 grams of order levitra cheap price CO2 per KWH. 1.4 Billion KWH's of solar saves about 2.4 Billion pounds of CO2 from being produced with coal. The production of Solar panels, however, does create some carbon dioxide - estimated at 32 grams per KWH. So, to be fair, let's just treat coals at 768 grams MORE than solar. In that case, solar saves "only" 2.37 Billion pounds of CO2.

Solar is a realistic, and now, with the viagra order cost of panels falling rapidly, an entirely economical alternative to "clean coal." Open your eyes and do the math. Solar and cheap levitra with fast delivery wind are the future.

Solar can not replace coal or nuclear
written by Collin Bell, February 06, 2012
30MW is huge in terms of solar, but not in terms of typical power generation

Phil. If your talking about these pannels replacing main generation plants that use coal and nuclear, its a no deal. You would need miles upon miles of bateries to find viagra cheap overnight mail store the MWh's overnight and a project like that would be a huge undertaking. Not to mention that a nuclear station puts out around 2,200,000,000 watts at full load. This means that you would need 73 of your 30MW solar arrays to match just one coal/nuclear plant. Consideringt that a 30 mw array averages around 6 sq miles that gives you 500 square miles of flat land being taken up solely by the solar arrays. I'm not even sure if you would have enough battery acid to create enough batteries for that.

Even if you are just talking about solar arrays being used to carve off peak loads it still does not work. The peak output of solar arrays usually takes place around 3. Sadly the peak load in the winter is during the morning and afternoon. The peaks do not even match up.

You also have to think about how spotty your power output will be on cloudy days

If you really want to create clean solar energy, you need to focus more on improving batteries more so than improving the try it what is the cost of cialis efficieny of your panels.

Overall, Solar can not be a replacement to order cialis on internet the heavy lifters in the power business, Coal and Nuclear.

The solar power can either be directly or indirectly gotten from the sunlight. When it's cloudy the intensity of order levitra pill the solar power delivered perfectly, the photovoltaic solar materials deliver sun rays into electricity and the solar thermal receiver changes the solar power into heat solvents, such as oil and water. This type of power is used in, iPod chargers, charge batteries water heaters, cell phone chargers and discount viagra viagra spacecrafts.

They are basically made from three-dimensional points; the crystalline silicon production, the crystalline silicon panels and the amorphous silicon panels. This stand of the solar-energy production is what is used in the present.

In general, solar energy can be described as the energy that is only here buy kamagra received from the sunlight and converted by a mechanical source for home use. It's cheaper and reliable for operations since the sun is readily available. On the other hand, solar panels are the mechanically built materials whose main purpose is to convert solar energy to electrical energy. They are built from an element called silicon. It is the core duty of the silicon element to covert the solar energy to electricity.
