UC San Diego Plants Solar Trees

UCSD is a sunny campus, and they’re taking advantage of buy cheap tramadol online it. As a way to capture more renewable energy, they’ve planted Solar Trees on the roofs of two parking garages. The trees shade vehicles and click here buy cialis china soak up sun.

I am starting to get frustrated that most parking lots and structures don’t already have these – how absolutely perfect are they? Everyone wants to park in the shade or in a sheltered spot, and businesses can always use the extra energy.

Anyway, the trees also provide outlets so that students and faculty with plug-in hybrids and EVs can utilize the http://theglobalobservatory.org/levitra-no-prescription energy collected, which is a serious incentive for people who are considering buying hybrids…free energy? Yes, please.

The best part for UCSD is that the trees were covered by three local companies, so the university is billed monthly for the electricity received, but didn’t have to provide any initial investment.

The solar trees are intended to be functional as well as look cool, with "trunks" and "branches." This kind of biomimicry is beginning to cialis dosage grow, with designers working to blend solar panels into environments in a more natural-ish way.

Each tree can generate more than 17,000 hours of energy annually. This kind of green initiative could be great for a whole lot of other universities. Hopefully they get the green bug and start “planting.”

This is precisely why you don't see them everywhere at State universities. It’s not cheap and the project design has to be approved through DSA (FYI - Division of the State Architect). This is not the viagra dose same as when a individual goes to the city and asks for a building permit. DSA rejects stuff all the time, so to get something like this rolling requires an architect, engineer and generic levitra soft tabs contractor who are familiar with the workings of DSA. In the end it’s very costly and few state colleges can afford it (especially with the expiration of viagra for ed many the rebates that were being offered). The most likely successful scenario would include a power-purchase agreement, but that involves more than one investing party, a bank and sometimes even the builder gets a slice of the pie. Maybe your expectations for this type of green building should be directed towards private colleges with big endowments?

Relativistic trees
written by Dave, September 09, 2008
These trees must exist in a strange parallel relativistic universe if they produce energy 17,000 hours per year. There are only about 8,760 hours in a year and that includes the dark times too.

17'000 hours
written by Clinch, September 09, 2008
I think it means 17'000 kWh, (so over the herbal alternative to cialis 8760 hours, an average of just under 2 kW per hour).

This seems like an excellent and practical use of the technology, but as 'Boohoo' pointed out, the problem is the bureaucracy behind being able to implement this.

too cool
written by cannon, September 09, 2008
so how cool would it be to roll into your local big box store parking lot that's a big as a football field, and park in the shade?? and then, after filling your hemp shopping bags, exiting to find it raining, but not getting wet walking to your prius?? the fact that the store is generic viagra discount cheap off the grid(during the day anyway) and possabilly feeding green power back into the grid is just gravey. how soon can we talk my local big boxes into these things???

As soon as they can pay for it. With the recession and dropping retail sales it’s unlikely they will find the capital to start such project. CVS and Kohls are two good examples of companies trying just what you suggested, but both programs have stalled to some degree due to www.investordaily.com.au cost and it's great! viagra one a day more importantly due to the expiration of state incentive programs. For example, Kohls is only testing the market with 22 stores getting solar panels on the best place free cialis sample their roofs with an eventual goal of 40. With the slow market don't be surprised if they don't even get close to 22. Also don’t forget sometimes the pfizer levitra 50mg stores don’t own the parking lot or the property, so who precisely do you expect to foot the bill? The property owners will NEVER pay for this kind of stuff out of we recommend cheapest prices on cialis pocket, let alone the additional design issues of seismic resistance for those panels ending up in California parking lots. Essentially it would have to be designed for the site from day one. Only government facilities are going to try this type of stuff on a large scale.
