    Solar Sphere Panels,used on cars or in space: Energy to move the dishes all day to get the right angle focus on a car, Half the energy is used trying to move all the dishes all the time. Sphere Solar panels on say a truck more aero dynamic for traveling(compared to dish).Nasa space telescopes that have sphere shaped panels because to much energy to move a dish in space. Plus a dish must recharge its battery for dish motion.Battery last 10 years.Sphere solar panels don’t need to move for sun

    What about night time?

    Sounds great, but will they still make us pay power bill for free sun?

    they just want to make a living rich taking our money out of our pockets from subsidies and i just hate them cuz its simple and they charge a lot! of a hell dam it!

  6. ginno1album says:

    solar power companies should start dropping the prices all the way down so we collapse the God Dam Petroleum problem and we erase “the just for rich business”” issue that curse everyone and the environment!

    Dear Corporate Media

    Buh Buh Buh Bullshit! I don’t want plants!!!! I want decentralized energy!!! Gimmie cells gangsta not power bills!!! Gimmie freedom bro not shackles!!! Gimmie the power to enpower and then leave me be; for this will be the true age of cheap clean energy!

    Love,
    Biter.

    PS. Thanks for half assing CBS the populace can read books now and we gots the infraweb so quit selling us future plants instead of selling us future cells!

    That’s when the batteries kick in.

    Solar energy has the potential to meet up to 15% of the electricity requirement in the US by 2020. Government subsidies for solar power are also making this possible. People are adopting alternate energy for their electricity needs and as energy demands increase, markets for alternative energy sources will only grow. Pacific Crest Transformers has a range of interesting articles on the renewable energy sector on their website.

    SUPER HOUSE!!!!

    there be a lot of power and there be solar roads no more normal roadways ha

    I invented a breakthrough source of energy which violates the law of energy conservation. I have a PROOF (based on the Maxwell’s equations) that there are electrodynamic phenomena which violate the law of energy conservation.
    In mass production, making a 6kW generator will cost $1200, value of the energy produced yearly $5400. I am looking for $6M for a prototype and patents.

    It’s got to be cheaper to run solar than fossile fuels already especially with new systems being developed that are more efficient. Solar is free energy. How could the God father in New Jersey say it’s not cheaper to run solar against fossile fuels that cost the enevironment alone a lot more! The northwest corridor for shipping is now potentially open to sea lanes due to huge melting from global warming. It’s all about the weather believe me as to switching to solar 100% Solar not other fuels!

    Well’s fargo and Chaise bank. YOU BETTER BUY YOUR SOLAR PANELS AND EVERYTHING NOW. Since the banks are getting involved uncles sam is going to do what he does to evething. Fuck it up for you. He will pass laws that say that only corporations and banks can buy that tech and that the general public will not. Now is almost illegal for you to buy and plant food in your own land.

    Great educational video! Solar Power will become a great energy resource in the future! Here in Hawaii – we have lots of sun and many people are choosing wind turbines, and solar panels as a great alternative to oil, coal and natural gas! Clean energy is the future of the world! See pristinesun . com/what-we-do.html for information on how to save 20% on your electrical bill every month & get solar panels installed for free for your business or non-profit co. in any state in US! Aloha & Mahalo!

    Solar energy is the answer to our future energy needs. Interesting video!

    Terrible.

    can you get that guy to come to NC? haha

    Thanks for posting this information. I believe so much that solar power is the future of our society that I wrote a song about it, Sun Power Me, by Ben Sage. Please give it a listen when you can.

    if you really want to make something work here it is take a parabolic solar concentrator and send light into a mirrored cone shape focal point then send that light into mirrored glass tubing which will send the light into a mirrored box with solar panels in it the solar panels must be cooled by spinning or cooling system.now get to work

    solar power is the most intresting power source. it fuses many sciences, including astronomy, physics, cemistry, and metherology.
