Renewable Energy Supply Doing Our Bit For Climate Change

Project 2019-10-11 09:05:15 +1300

 

Welcome to our pledgeme page. We had the idea of this project from our tiny house. I installed a 5kwh system on our tiny house by researching solar and the benfits it provide and having no power bill is a major bonus. We are proposing the installation of a 10KWH solar array which will be connected to the grid. 

I am an experienced builder so have designed the mounting system and using qualified contractors to build, connect and wire up the array to the mains.

 

We have 2 hectares of land where we want to provide energy back to the grid and provide some of the revenue we receive back from the energy companies will go to charitable company's investing in renewable energy and sustainability and you.

Solar panels are one of the best resources that we have available to fight climate change. They are not contaminating, their energy resource is renewable and inexhaustible, they can be recycled, and every kWh of energy coming from solar panels is a kWh of energy that is not generated in contaminating facility plants that expel greenhouse gases.

As one of the most commonly available, accessible, and feasible renewable energy options, solar panels are one of the main drivers in the reduction of carbon emissions across the globe. One of the best ways that most of us can contribute to the fight against climate change is for more people to install solar panels on their homes however this is still a costly business. Solar energy presents a set of advantages that can be used to offset carbon emissions and investing in solar for your house will also help your wallet.

Using solar panels and other forms of renewable energy, all help towards reducing our carbon emissions. Whilst the reductions are minimal, it’s a case of every little helps and when done at large scales it really can make a long term difference.

 

Reusability and recyclability

When modules reach the end of their useful life, something must be done with the solar panel wastes. Considering just burning them down or throw them away into a pile of waste wouldn’t be exactly environmentally friendly, right? Especially because some of them could even have toxic components like cadmium telluride, indium, gallium and selenide. The great advantage of solar panels is that they can be recycled, extracting mainly aluminum, glass and some minerals like silicon, copper, and polymers. This translates into less burning and more materials that can be used for other purposes and mainly to the manufacturing of new or refurbished solar panels.

 

We want this to be the first of many arrays and exploration into using wind turbines is also being considered so further fund raising will be available in the future. This first raise will be so special for us as we start this journey.

 

Estimated Capital and Operational Budget

 

Solar System - $40k

Mounting System - $20k 

Grid Connection - $10k 

Maintenance (5 Years) - $5k

 

Estmated Cost $75k
