  • Solar hot water system

    Solar hot water systems (e.g. residential) do not produce steam, for example. Thus, solar hot water systems cannot push a steam turbine and will not generate electrical power. Solar hot water systems are used for heating and hot water requirements, not electrical power. If this is offsetting electrical hot water or electrical heat, then these are more like 'negawatts' than Terawatts. Steam ...

  • How to grow a solar energy garden

    Getting energy from the sun is a great idea. However, installing solar panels house-by-house is slow, costly and cumbersome, and downright inefficient if the goal is to bring solar to the masses. This problem troubled Paul Spencer after he built his own uber-efficient, custom solar home near Aspen, Colorado in 2004.  The engineer and serial entrepreneur wondered how he could replicate his ...

  • Will natural gas dim solar’s shine?
