Dell Plants Solar Trees in the Parking Lot

dellparkinglotDell is doing it again, this time on-site, with a series of solar trees that will not only help power it's headquarters in Round Rock, Texas, but also serve to charge electric vehicles parked there. Of course, there aren't currently any electric vehicles parking in the Dell lot, but hopefully that will change in the next few years.

The solar trees were put in place by Envision Solar, who's work we've seen at Google Headquarters previously.The Dell installation will provide 130,000 kW/h per year and cheap cialis no prescription buy shades the parking spots of the 56 employees who get to the buy viagra for cheap lot first. Everyone else gets punished for being late by having to park in the sun.

The project uses more than Envision's technology though. The charging points are provided by Coulomb Technologies while the solar panels themselves were manufactured by BP Solar. All together, they made themselves (and Dell) a pretty sexy-looking parking lot. Hopefully we'll see a lot more of we choice viagra online pharmacy usa these in the future.

Parking lots are ideal for solar panels
written by Carl Hage, October 27, 2009
Silly to cialis information call it a solar tree-- but still a good idea. What matters most is the mounting and installation cost/Watt. In theory, it could be equal or lower than roof mounts, and there is more parking lot area available than roof area. Shading of cars is an added bonus. You would think it would be cheaper and more stable if there was a continuous strip of panels. If parking lots were solarized on a mass scale, then specialized trucks and equipment could be used so one small team could install a

I have statistics for San Mateo County, CA (home of Tesla)-- if 50% of commercial/industrial sites were covered in solar panels (1.6% of land), that would meet 100% of the kWh/day demand for the whole county, even without any farm/residential area.

For the next 20 years you wouldn't want to charge a car with a solar panel. Until we have more daytime electricity than nighttime, it's better to use car charging to fill the dips in demand.

Article doesn't mention it, but is buy tramadol europe the power currently being generated at least being tapped to power the buildings?

Quite remarkarble
written by VeruTEK Green Technologies, October 27, 2009
It is quite a brilliant idea, and anyone who has gotten in to a car after it has been sitting in the sun all day knows how much heat and energy can be reached. I am not quite sure why they call it a Solar Tree, just because it provides shade for other cars. Still it is a good idea, and kudos to Dell.

I think its kWh, not kW/h.

This is actually a very good idea. Not only can we provide shade, we can also use them as sources for fuel for electric cars. Kudos!

I think that more and more states should follow this example of change. It all starts one step at a time anyway, right?

In Oregon, you could add rain collection
written by OregonFarmer, November 06, 2009
Well, actually in most any state, the same parking lot covers could be linked to it's cool generic cialis from india rain storage as well as solar collection.

So if a car is not pulling power from the viagra pills buy solar array, where does it go in this installation?

Been saying that for years!
written by SilenceIsGolden, November 10, 2009
Every time we visit the in-laws in Texas I say 'Wouldn't it be great if all the parking lots had roofs with solar panels on them - to catch the energy and provide shade at the same time'? There are so many couples down there where one stays in the car with the motor running to keep the AC on (yes, I know, it doesn't do anything if the what better viagra or cialis car isn't running...) while the other one runs into the store to buy things. And I mean not just run in quickly to buy a paper or so.

Yeah!! I actually started clapping when I read this - we need more initiatives like these!! smilies/cheesy.gif

What about solar water heating?
written by austin solar installers, November 19, 2009
Unlike photovoltaic(PV) systems that convert sunlight into electricity, solar water heaters simply takes the heat from the sun and online cheap viagra transfers it to your home’s water heater. The panel has no moving parts, no expensive electric cells, so you get a very cost effective system that can power 30% of your home’s energy needs year round.

Dell Solar

While Envision Solar touts its accomplishment, the true accolades belong to McBride Electric located in Austin (Round Rock) Texas. It was McBride Electric that was the general contractor for Dell Computers and chose to use Envision for the structural design of the “Trees”. They [McBride] utilized other contractors for various portions of the project on buying cialis without prescription various trades. Though there were significant issues involved with the structural steel by Envision that caused McBride to viagra for sale in usa make in-the-field repairs and changes to the assembly, McBride overcame those obstacles and produced a great landmark installation for Dell. This is obviously just the very first of viagra pharmacy uk many installation of both covered parking and most likely roof top mounted photovoltaic system that Dell will be installing. The credit belongs to those at the general contractor [McBride Electric] and Dell for an outstanding project. I watched the building of this outside of my window.

On a trip to Tallahassee this past summer I noticed that one of the government buildings had a "solar tree" installed in their parking lot. I was designated for electric cars and the employee of the month, etc. It was then that I had an idea to cover all of the interstate road with them and tie them into the grid at various points. That would provide for a "covered bridge" type road, keeping the visit web site levitra online us snow and branded viagra rain off the road reducing accidents, keeping the glare from the sun out of donpablo.nl drivers eyes, reducing accidents, and keeping the weather from creating so many pot holes in the road, along with providing enough solar power to run the USA. When you start adding up the amount of miles of highways we have, we could surely have enough power to handle our needs and it would put an awful lot of people to work for installing, and maintaining the panels all across the USA. We aren't doing much with the roads right now except driving on them, why not have them provide the electric for us.

I really like Joanne's idea of covering roads with panels, and all the safety benefits(snow and rain cover)One problem: the weight of snow! Maybe companies could sponsor sections with advertising to cialis super active offset the cialis blood thinner cost. The electricity generated could be used to power lighting for the roads at night(using LEDs)

General or sub contractor both McBride and Envision can take pride in their work. Strategic Partners are more than subs if they contribute to getting the job. I hope these two companies do more projects together regardless of who does the initial prospecting, sales presentation or closing of viagra dose future deals. As a stockholder I hope Envision is a good sub or general with lots of good partners.

What a great idea, go Dell! I hope to see more electric cars in the future. Thanks for sharing.
