Solar Impulse Making a Transcontinental Voyage

Solar powered flight will reach a new milestone this week as the Solar Impulse makes a transcontinental voyage. The solar powered airplane has already completed the first leg of its journey with a 17 hour trip from their base in Switzerland to buy now online levitra Madrid. The final destination of this trip is for the levitra delivered overnight plane to fly on to Morocco.

Solar Impulse has previously completed a 24 hour flight, but that was done largely by circling in place. The current flight extends the Solar Impulse team's activity to address issues such as logistics and click here online us viagra storms in the flight path. All of this is in preparation for the eventual around the world flight planned for 2013.

Nevada Home to World's First Hybrid Solar-Geothermal Plant

Nevada's Stillwater geothermal plant has added a solar array to become the world's first hybrid solar-geothermal plant. Enel Green Power North America installed more than 89,000 solar panels with a capacity of 26 MW to the site. The plant's combined capacity is now 59 MW of clean energy capable of powering more than 50,000 homes.

Solar and geothermal are a match made in heaven. Both are great sources of clean energy, but solar power needs a backup for when the ultram where to buy sun isn't shining (whether nighttime or a cloudy day). That's where geothermal is a great partner. It's a consistent form of energy that can smooth out the gaps in solar power and during the day when demand is greatest, you have the benefit of receiving power from both sources.

The project received $40 million in tax support from the Department of Energy through the Recovery Act. Stillwater is the best choice viagra online in canada one of 14 geothermal sites in Nevada and Utah that received investments from the DOE to accelerate geothermal power development.

DOE Secretary Steven Chu says “As the first of its kind in the world, this project demonstrates how we can tap renewable energy sources to provide clean power for American families and businesses and deploy every available source of American energy."

Saudi Arabia Aims for 41 GW of Solar Power by 2032

Saudi Arabia is making a major push make renewables, especially solar power, a bigger part of its energy mix. The oil-rich country is aiming to have 41 GW of solar power capacity installed by 2032 as well as a host of other renewable energy projects like wind, geothermal and waste-to-fuel plants.

The country is planning to install 16 GW of solar photovoltaic power and 25 GW of concentrated solar power. This breakdown makes sense with CSP being very well suited for hot desert environments.

The country hopes to cut down on its oil use and buy viagara from canadian pharmacy increase its presence in the solar power industry. Saudi Arabia is opening up bidding for the projects in two different rounds with project sizes ranging from 5 MW and up to determine who will build the installations.

Map Shows Which States Are Cranking Out Renewable Power

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has released a map that shows which states have the highest concentration of renewable power. The map compares 2001 to 2011 and displays the viagra scams share of total net generation of non-hydro renewable energy for each state.

As you can see, Maine, South Dakota and Iowa all are getting over 15 percent of their power from renewable sources. Maine got 27 percent of its electricity from renewables in 2011, South Dakota 21 percent and Iowa 17 percent.

The entire country has seen a major jump in renewable energy share, but the Dakotas, Wyoming and Iowa and other states in the Midwest had the most  impressive growth over 2001 when virtually no renewables were in place. The reason for the growth in many states is due to renewable energy standards that require utilities to get a certain percentage of order viagra next day shipping their power share from renewable sources. States like California, Colorado and Vermont have strict ones in place, while the entire region of the Southeast have no standards or much less strict ones and you can see how those states lag behind on the map.

If you add hydro power back in, Idaho, Washington and brand viagra Oregon win with 93 percent, 82 percent and 78 percent coming from renewables, respectively.

Of course, this map shows renewable energy generation from just one perspective: percentage of total electricity generation. When it comes to total capacity, the winners are a bit different. According to the best place cheap discount viagra the EIA, here's the top six in 2012 in that category:

  1. Texas
  2. California
  3. Iowa
  4. Minnesota
  5. Washington
  6. Illinois

Solar-Powered Boat Finishes Globe-Circling Journey

The Turanor PlanetSolar, the first completely solar-powered boat to go all the way round the world, will finish its journey tomorrow. The catamaran will pull into Hercule Harbor in Monaco, the place it started, after 19 months at sea.

The world's largest solar-powered boat set off on viagra viagra online September 27, 2010 and made its way across the generic levitra overnight Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans, through the Panama and Suez canals and docked at Miami, Cancun, Brisbane, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Abu Dhabi, and other ports along the way.

The PlanetSolar was made to be as lightweight and aerodynamic as possible. The 31x15 meter boat is made from carbon fiber and features 537 square meters of solar panels with a capacity of 93.5 kW, backed by a lithium-ion battery system. The route kept the boat and its four-person crew cruising as close to the equator as possible to provide the maximum amount of sunlight.

The project was masterminded by Raphael Domjan, an electronics engineer and viagra prices in usa outdoors enthusiast who wanted to do something big to promote the potential of solar power. I'd say mission accomplished.

When the boat reaches the finish line tomorrow, the solar power system on the boat will power a light show to we use it when will viagra be available as a generic celebrate. There will be a book and documentary released in September to coincide with the buy online prescription levitra two-year anniversary of the beginning of the voyage.
