The Ultimate Solar Power
Hubble Floating Free
Why should we all be thinking
about using Solar Power?
One look at the picture of the Hubble
should answer that question.
has been sending exciting pictures back to us since it left the Planet.
And the breathtaking photography we have been enjoying for
is thanks to Hubble's
onboard Solar panels.
Robert Redford, a lifelong leader in
conservation and green energy,
has some very definite opinions about Solar
Robert Redford on Solar Power
So, where to begin?
What are we
currently paying for gasoline,
natural gas, propane gas and electricity?
What can we do to change the way that we use and buy Energy?
What are nuclear power and
coal power doing to our planet?
We already now know about the
risks and how dangerous they are,
or can be, but are they any
cheaper than gas or electric?
Most importantly, what are we doing with all of the hundreds
of thousands of spent fuel rods and what will it
cost to make this phantom so called clean coal?
How long can we keep growing corn, wheat and rice to be used for fuel,
and how does this affect the price of the food that we eat?
Americans are finally just
beginning to think about turning
in their dinosaurs for more
fuel efficient vehicles.
We are still thinking small,
but we are thinking!
O.K., I got that off my chest,
now let's get started.
I am retired now, but I have
noticed that things have changed
and science has made great
improvements with solar panels,
solar water tanks and
the Energy equipment to connect them,
since I first started installing them back in the early 70's.
Now one person can install
this equipment just about anywhere,
and the costs have come way
You can also take power from
to run its circulator pump!
There will be no need for
power companies or worries about
power outages or where you want to use this
Thanks to the newer sensors,
if you live where it goes below freezing,
the pump will automatically
shut off and uses water instead of anti-freeze.
You can go one step further,
by adding a Low loss energy
reservoir to insure that you
will have enough hot water
until the sun heats the
panels up again.

Then you could add more panels, some Radiant
or baseboards and the sun can also heat your
If you have a forced warm air system and want to
you can just install a coil into your system and
you are all set!
The next step Americans must take, if we still
think that we cannot afford to update our equipment,
is to be sure that we elect only those people into office
who really are interested in getting America onboard
the Alternative Energy Train.
Right now, our deserts, the roofs of our malls,
old mill towns and the space
under our existing power
Tracks (land below the power lines)
is being completely ignored.
Hope you got a chance to see the story on HBO?
HBO's too hot not to handle:
Please read the interview with Laurie David:
Huge Solar Plants Bloom in Desert
The deserts of Southern California are known for
never-ending sunshine and miles of open space,
making it the perfect combination for the world's
most ambitious solar energy projects.
We have many areas like these deserts where we can
and should put solar energy to good use.
Recreation Vehicles and Homes
Solar can be installed on motor homes, cottages, campers
The kits provide all of the equipment required to fit
a solar panel to the
roof of your caravan or motor home to charge
your existing 12V battery.
The kits can be adapted for use onboard boats
Shopping Malls Skylights
percentage of ceiling area is about right
for the type of illumination
light distribution is good.
The diffusing skylights are installed at the tops
tapered recesses, minimizing glare.
