Wind Energy – The Cheapest Renewable Energy Ressource

Compared to the traditional sources like oil, gas, fossil fuel, coal or nuclear generated powers, wind energy is regarded as the most effective and reliable today. It is the fastest growing renewable energy solution and also causes very little damage to the environment like other sources. Though wind flow is not consistent everyday but still in Victoria it is regarded as the cheapest renewable energy source. But along with the time as the oil, gas and fossil fuel became expensive, people switched on to wind energy and have started considering it as the only cheapest and reliable source. In the past days the energy generators were mainly used by the large scale farms. But the scenario is changing as the turbines are known to be more effective and reliable in generating wind power.

The turbines are used to transform the wind into electrical energy which people can use to fulfill their needs. But in order to develop wind farms it is important to carry out certain feasibility researches because all regions are not that suitable for developing wind energy development farms. A wind farm planning approval in Victoria is thus essential.

In the present time wind is one of the cheapest ways to generate power and it also helps to prevent any kind of climatic change. The best thing is that it does not require any extra fuel cost and is environmental friendly as it reduces pollution. Mainly this energy is generated when the wind passes against the blade of the wind turbines making the blades rotate. This direct current can be used to provide power to any electrical devices or can be stored and used later and also can be sold to any home owner in exchange of money against monthly electrical bill. You can generate wind energy when needed as there is no shortage of resource and it is all time available.

Compared to other fossil fuels the this energy reduces the climatic change drastically. Many forms of atmospheric pollutions including smog; acid rain, haze etc are lessened to a great extent. Wind energy does not contribute to the already existing environmental adversities and global warming.

A wide varieties of generators are available in the market but the Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWT) is most commonly used in residential sectors.It is the part of solar energy as the sun plays an important role in creating wind energy. Though water is not required in the production of this energy but is an ideal option to generate electricity to carry out irrigation.

Tesla unveils its solar roof and Powerwall 2

The company wants you to harness the power of the sun.

 

At Universal Studios in Los Angeles Tesla CEO Elon Musk showed off the company’s solar roof-top panels, new $5,500 Powerwall 2 high-capacity residential battery pack and Powerpack 2 for businesses.

Musk and company have been teasing the photovoltaic cell-embedded rooftop panels for a few weeks. The event was probably timed as an grand explanation for why its important the automaker acquire Solar City. Musk said that if the merger doesn’t go through, the launch of the new tiles will be difficult.

During the event, Musk sort of talked about the price of the panels. He said that the “installed cost is less than a normal roof and the cost of electricity.” But there was no concrete pricing announced noting that it’s difficult to put a price on what it’ll cost for every house. Of course a price per square foot would have been helpful. The company will sell the tiles directly to customers instead of working with home builders.

They did install non-operational tiles on the Desperate Housewives’ homes before the event. While everyone waited for Musk to take the stage, no one took notice of the homes because they seemed so normal. That’s exactly what Tesla and Solar City want to achieve.

In fact, Musk also showed off a Tuscan-style house with glass tiles on the roof of the garage that to the naked eye, you would be hard-pressed to notice was actually sucking up the energy of the sun. The rest of the house had its original tiles and Tesla noted that this sort of installation gives home owners the opportunity to only place only the solar panels they need while keeping their abodes looking good. “People love their homes and we want them to be better,” Musk said.

Of course the entire equation requires batteries to keep the humming along when the sun goes down. With that in mind, Tesla also introduced a new version of its Powerwall. The company said the two 14 kWh lithium-ion battery packs inside each pack (over double the capacity of the previous version) will power a four bedroom house with lights, refrigerator and other appliances for an entire day.

The new Powerall also now includes a built-in power inverter. The previous version required a separate piece of hardware. That inverter works directly with the solar roof tiles to convert sunlight into electricity.

Musk said they will start installing the glass tiles in summer 2017 and insisted that the roofs will last a very, very long time. “We expect this to have two or three times the longevity of asphalt. It’s really never going to wear out. It’s got a quasi-infinite lifetime. It’s made of quartz,” he said.

Tesla has just come off an impressive quarter where it posted a profit for the first time in two years. It also announced earlier this month that all vehicles produced going forward would have the hardware capable of full autonomous driving.
