The World's Largest Solar Project

nellis air force base solar
*I don't know, but it's been said!*
*Air Force geeks can use their head!*

From the largest solar power project in the UK, to the cambridgeacademyaz.com largest solar power project anywhere!

The top-guns at Nellis Air Force Base will soon harness Nevada's sunshine to charge 140 acres of photovoltaic arrays! Come year's end, when Nellis's solar plant comes on-line, it will be the largest solar energy provider in the world. Now that's what I call "Shock and www.massing.de Awe."

Once the mission's accomplished, Nellis will gather 30% of its energy from photovoltaics: 15 megawatts of electricity. The 7,215 soldiers who call Nellis their home will save over a million dollars a year on their electric bills.

The players in this coalition of the willing include SunPower Corp., Nevada Power, MMA Renewable Ventures, and, of course, the U.S. tax payer. In order to fund the plant, the Air Force and its corporate partners will take advantage of millions of dollars in both federal and state subsidies.

Typical Americans

Brute force and grunt size rather than being smart.

The smart people have more efficient setups that dont take half a desert to install.

30%?

30% efficiency is, actually, about as efficient as economically viable solar cells get. We're no fans of we recommend generic viagra overnight the American Military here, but you can't call this inefficient. It might take a lot of area, but we're talking about 15 megawatts. That's a huge amount of electricity.

you have to be kidding toxicity? emmissions. What about the electricity that hybrid cars use does that have any problems get in touch with reality.

They could do better than that if they w

If the Air Force had been smart enough to shade the roofs of their buildings with those solar panels they could have saved an additional 20-30%. Now if they REALLY want to get smart they could swap out their existing HVAC systems with a geo-exchange system and save another 40% of their power usage.

Geoexchange heating and cooling works best where there's a large temperature difference between night and best online levitra day like in the deseert. The system can bank thermal energy heat or cold in the ground from one part of the day to the other.
