Italy Planning Another Giant Solar Array

padua-array
Italy has been showing its commitment to it's great! viagra 100mg solar power in a big way.  Just a few weeks ago, plans were announced for covering the Milan Trade Fair with an 18-MW rooftop solar array, the world's largest, and now the country will also be able to claim the second largest rooftop array.  The new array will be on the Interporto di Padova in Padua and http://www.rickgenest.com/cialis-in-india will have a capacity of 15 MW.

The array will take up 2.7 million square feet, consist of 67,500 solar panels and will be able to produce enough power for 5,000 households.  Once up and running, the array will prevent the emission of 9,000 metric tons of cheapest generic levitra CO2 a year or 3,200 metric tons of crude oil.

Construction will start in September by Italian solar PV-maker SOLON.

Out of curiosity, how much does this all cost? What noxious chemicals are used in creating these panels? How is solar power green? What about using less power?

@Ken:
I agree we should use less energy, but then I'd rather have a coal plant producing less (energy but also CO2) then building one solar plant less.

Ken, no idea what it cost, but whatever is costs, the price dropping.

In the early '90s the retail price of PV solar was close to $12 per watt (2008 dollars). Recently I've seen a couple of adds for PV solar at $3 per watt. And the price should continue to fall.

Nasty stuff is used in creating PV solar. But it's contained within the viagra professional scam manufacturing process. Unlike, for example, the nasty stuff that is generic viagra overnight deliver western union released when we burn coal for electricity. Pollution from PV manufactuing is a non-issue.

Hard to get much greener than solar. We don't have to rip off the tops of mountains to cheap cialis uk get the materials needed to manufacture.

We don't pollute during manufacture or during use.

Energy payback is now measured in months. Panels repay the grid the energy needed to manufacture them. Since we've made a lot of panels to date and hooked them to the grid one could make a reasonable argument that we are now using solar power to manufacture more solar panels.

And, yes, it doesn't get better than conservation. Conservation is such a no-brainer that it's amazing that the citizens in some states still use twice the visitkansascityks.com electricity as the citizens in others.

We can save huge amounts of power with conservation and that will make it much easier to replace coal with solar, wind, wave, tidal, and geothermal.
