Today we want to show the most attractive illustrations about solar energy. Hope you’ll share it with your friends!
Nowadays no one can be surprised at how promising the renewable energy industry is. Solar energy is the leading direction, using the cleanest and most constant resource of energy — sun rays. Not so long ago, we told about the most common misconceptions about solar panels and its use. In this article, we decided to share other useful information.
1. The power of Solar Power
SaveOnEnergy showed an animated infographic to visually illustrate how much power one module generates. The Solar City’s solar panel was used as a basis, with an efficiency of 22 percent under normal weather conditions in America. We also should note that the calculations were made on the basis of the house, non-scale generation.
Thus, one solar module, generating 507 kilowatts per hour, can charge 125 modern smartphones in a year. The energy from two panels can be compared to the electricity produced by a bicyclist, which did not stop moving throughout the whole year. :)
Less than 400 solar modules will be able to charge the Tesla Model S for a trip to the moon and back!
2. Water consumption in power plants.
You may don’t know that generating facilities use not only fuel resources for its work. Tons of fresh water goes to the support work of power plants: pumping oil, cleaning pipes, removing contaminants after burning fuel, cooling, and etc. One Block Off The Grid compared the average fresh water consumption for the most popular types of generation.
Guess who won? Bingo!
3. Renewable Energy investments
Recently, we talked about how Google and Apple switched to 100% renewable energy. Google showed its own infographics on this topic. The total capacity of projects financed by the company exceeds 2 GW. Therefore, experts decided to show how much it is. For example, 2 GW of green energy is enough to provide electricity to 500,000 American homes during a year!
4. Electric Cars Vs “old-fashioned” technologies
The SolarPowerRocks team made a special study on the electric vehicles use. According to calculations, the most profitable option is a Chevrolet Spark, which requires 6.5 kWh less than Tesla Model X to drive 50 miles.
In its research, the company told in detail about the calculation process. The result of the work is a colorful infographic comparing a conventional car and an electric one.
5. The best 10 Solar facts
Finally, we want to show the wonderful work of Westcoast Solar Energy and 10 facts about solar power. For example, did you know before that solar panels’ price in 1975 was more than 200 times higherthan today?
