Do you think solar roadways will be viable large scale?

These are still a thing? I could point you to real live data to see how they are grossly underperforming -but the site as of the moment of writing this is down and the latest data it offers is from the 3rd of September 2018 (see here Commercial System)Instead let's play the bullet

Can I use wind turbines to generate the electricity for my off-grid battery bank?

Absolutely.I strongly recommend, however, that you seek the advice of a a good wind and solar contractor, supplier of components, electrical engineer with knowledge of such installations, or the engineering staff of the wind turbine manufacturer you choose before diving into such an installation.In most of my experience tells me that this sort of installation makes

How is excess of electricity produced by solar energy fed to the grid?

Excess power generated from a solar pv project can be fed to the grid and will be useful only if there is netetering policy in your state. States like Delhi,AP,Punjab allow netmetering which is an added advantage to the developer interns of financial viability.The price

If everyone was able to add solar panels to their homes would the power grid in the U.S.A. be able to handle the extra electricity?

If everyone in the USA added solar panels to their homes today and the current power companies did not adjust to the influx of electricity, the grid could not support it at times of relatively high production and low demand. Of course, it does

If the electricity grid cannot store energy and all energy consumed must be generated at the same time from power plants then where does excess generated electricity and energy go?

If there is excess energy in the system it simply gets wasted as heat one way or another, The operators and engineers running the power grid try to keep the waste to a minimum but it is significant. Note: there are increasing numbers of storage facilities of all sorts being built as the

If we hooked up all the stationary bicycles in all the gyms in the world so that they give generated power to the grid, would that make a significant difference in worldwide electricity production?

If we hooked up all the stationary bicycles in all the gyms in the world so that they give generated power to the grid, would that make a significant difference in worldwide electricity production?No.The average person can generate 200W. Or 0.2 kWh per hour. And not continuously.That comes to about 5 cents an

What's the average cost for installing solar panels on the roof of a single family home? Are the savings on the light bill worth the installation cost? Is maintenance cost high on solar panels?

The cost of installing a solar renewable energy system on the roof of a home depends on how big of a system is wanted/ needed.The breakdown for our renewable energy system when compared to our previous energy bill is:The system as a whole was $30,000. When you divide that by 20 years, the cost of

Renewable Energy Technology Is Growing Old - What's Next?

Question: Renewable Energy Technology Is Growing Old - What's Next?You have conventional fossil fuel energy sources like coal powered electricity production that has been around for more than a hundred years. That's an old technology. The technologies of coal power kept on improving and today's power production
