From Silicon Trash to Solar Energy

From Silicon Trash to Solar Energy

Yesterday IBM announced a new semiconductor wafer reclamation process pioneered at its Burlington, Vermont manufacturing facility. The new process uses a specialized pattern removal technique to repurpose scrap semiconductor wafers -- thin discs of silicon material used to imprint patterns that make finished semiconductor chips for computers, mobile phones, video games, and other consumer electronics -- to a form used to manufacture silicon-based solar panels.

Sweet Science: Researcher Develops Energy-dense Sugar Battery

A Virginia Tech research team has developed a battery that runs on sugar and has an unmatched energy density, a development that could replace conventional batteries with ones that are cheaper, refillable, and biodegradable.
The Smart grid Needs Global Standards

The Smart grid Needs Global Standards

Back when I first refocused my personal blog on “The War Against Oil” there was a lot of talk about the “smart grid.” Trouble is we aren’t sure what we mean by it. It keeps changing. It’s a broad term. It can be simple of complex. Al Gore’s term for the smart grid was the “Enernet,” for energy network. The […]
Children’s Play – The ABC’s of Solar Power

Children’s Play – The ABC’s of Solar Power

Solar energy is a smart and energy efficient way to power your home. We believe it’s important to teach children about solar so that they will be in a better position to make the right energy choices when they are older. However, solar power can be confusing to understand, even for adults. Palmetto Solar wants to help simplify solar energy for your kids and get them excited about going solar! Use these simple solar ABC’s to initiate the solar energy talk with your kids. . . . . . “A” — Solar Power is Awesome! Solar energy is just another way of saying energy from the sun. The sun is everywhere and gives off more energy in one second, than people have used from the beginning of time! When the suns’ rays reach Earth, the energy can be collected and used to power anything from calculators and road signs to bigger things like buildings, planes and your home. “B” — Because Solar Power is good for you and your family! Solar energy is a form of clean energy and is good for the planet. Fossil fuels such as coal and oil are harmful to Earth and cause pollution. The exhaust that comes out of our cars gets into the air that we breathe and makes us sick, oil spills have killed thousands of animals, and the atmosphere around our planet has been damaged by people all over the world using fossil fuels. Another problem with fossil fuels is that they are running out! This makes them harder to get and more expensive. When we switch to solar energy we never have to worry about harming our planet or running out of energy! “C” — Solar Power is Cool & Saves Cash! In order to capture the suns’ rays to power your home, you need to put solar panels on your roof. When the sunlight hits the solar panels, it is turned directly into energy that can be used to power your home. The solar panels on your roof can make enough energy to power everything in your home including your refrigerator, T.V., computer, and even your video game systems. When you go solar, you create your own energy. This means your power bill is much lower. When parents don’t have to pay high electricity bills anymore they will have more money for fun things like going on a family vacation, going to the movies, or buying toys! Using solar panels saves money and helps the planet at the same time. . . . . . Switching to solar energy is an easy transition for the whole family. Be sure your kids are well informed with all the kid-friendly facts about solar power, and they’ll be just as excited as you about going solar.  Contact our team of consultants to start the process and start seeing the benefits of solar today! Follow Palmetto Solar on our Facebook and Twitter pages to stay up to date on the latest solar news and clean energy information. We round up the info you care about and make it easy to share with others. We love spreading the latest solar news and information. We hope that you will too.   Palmetto Solar GoPalmettoSolar.com Palmetto Palmetto.com

Beyond ‘Valley of Death’ — A Bridge to America’s Clean Energy Economy

Beyond ‘Valley of Death’ — A Bridge to America’s Clean Energy Economy

A couple years ago at our annual WINDPOWER conference, I said wind energy had to build a bridge across the "Valley of Death" some worried would come with the planned ramp-down of renewable energy tax credits for wind and solar power in 2020.
Can Mirrors Boost Solar Panel Output — and Help Overcome Trump’s Tariffs?

Can Mirrors Boost Solar Panel Output — and Help Overcome Trump’s Tariffs?

Falling costs for solar power have led to an explosive growth in residential, commercial and utility-scale solar use over the past decade. The levelized cost of solar electricity using imported solar panels — that is, the solar electricity cost measured over the life of the panels – has dropped in cost so much that it is lower than electricity from competing sources like coal in most of America.
