students' solar car burns competition


Three years ago, Dan Myers needed a senior project for an environmental design course at South Plantation High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Myers wanted to be an engineer, so his teacher Allan Phipps showed him photos of college-built solar race cars.

Solar Power

Definition...Solar Energy is the heat and light radiated from the Sun that drives Earth's climate and supports life. Solar technologies make controlled use of this energy resource is a synonym of solar energy or refers specifically to the conversion of sunlight into electricity by photovoltaics, concentrating solar thermal devices or various experimental technologies. Resource: Wikipedia (Solar Energy)

How it Works...Solar energys power from the sun is free and inexhaustibleThis vast, clean energy resource represents a viable alternative to the fossil fuels that currently pollute our air and water, threaten our public health, and contribute to global warming. Failing to take advantage of such a widely available and low-impact resource would be a grave injustice to our children and all future generations. In te broadest sense, solar energy supports all life on Earth and is the basis for almost every form of energy we use. The sun makes plants grow, which can be burned as a biomass fuel or, if left to rot in swamps and compressed underground for millions of years, in the form of coal and oil. Heat from the sun causes temperature differences between areas, producing wind that can power turbines. Water evaporates because of the sun, falls on high elevations, and rushes down to the sea, spinning hydroelectric turbines as it passes. But solar energy usually refers to ways the sun's energy can be used to directly generate heat, lighting, and electricity.

Power From the Sun
General Electric


GE's solar electric power systems and products offer high quality, reliable power generation technology for residential, commercial and industrial applications. By partnering with the sun, solar energy can supply local power for on-and off-grid applications with zero noise pollution and air emissions. Contact GE for information about their solar products.

Solar Hot Water
While most people are captivated by the high-tech nature of solar-electric (photovoltaic; PV) systems, in most cases, a solar hot water system will harvest more energy at a substantially lower cost. In fact, compared to PVs, solar domestic hot water (SDHW) collectors are more than three times as efficient at producing energy from the sun.

Solar Cars
Insistence by the California Air Resources Board that electric vehicles (EVs) could be the solution to California's air-pollution problems and the develop-ment of the ZEV (zero emissions vehicle) mandate in 1990 resulted in the development of General Motor's EV1 and similar electric vehicles. EVs suffered a setback by the elimination of this mandate in 2003 and the crush-ing of many of these cars, but the electric car has not been killed far from it.

Solar Homes
Building or buying a home is a long-term financial commitment. Good passive solar design offers big payoffs in thermal comfort, energy efficiency, and conservation, with miniscule monetary commitment. Poor design has the opposite effect it can obligate a homeowner to unnecessarily high energy bills and living in an uncomfortable house.

Solarscapes
The conceptaptly dubbed solarscaping is a new take on building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) systems. Unlike traditional BIPV systems that are designed into a structure from the blueprint phase, solarscapes work with both new and existing structures and can minimize the aesthetic concerns of adding PV to your home.
