Chevy Volt
  • Electric plug in car
    • 1 full charge = 35 miles
    • Up to100 mph
  • With full tank of gas
    • 375 miles
  • Lowest price is $39,145
    • Tax rebate ranges from $0- $7,500
      • In Colorado, it is $6,500
battery
Battery
  • Charging in a household plug takes 10 hours
  • Charging with a charge station takes 4 hours
    • Installation at a home costs $300- $1,900
  • Estimated full battery costs $1.50 per day

How solar panel works

Solar Panel Efficiency

Solar Panels convert

11-15% of Light Energy

To electricity. For our

Calculation we’ll use

12% Efficiency.

estimating solar panel output
Estimating Solar Panel output
  • Not consistent
    • Area
    • Climate
    • Season
    • Different type of panels
  • U.S. potential solar energy map
    • http://energy.gov/maps/solar-energy-potential
what is a kwh
What is a kWh?
  • Watt-
    • Unit of power - Joule/Second
  • Kilo watt hour
    • A unit of energy
    • 3,600,000 Joules = 60 sec/min*60 min/hour * 1000
  • U.S. Solar output map in kWh
slide8
How much area of solar panels using current technology would it take to produce enough electricity to drive a GM Volt 70 miles a day?
  • Denver gets 6 kWh/m²/day
  • Volt battery holds 12.8 kWh of energy
  • Range of Volt fully charged is 35 miles
  • Energy needed to go 70 miles is 2*12.8 kWh = 25 .6 kWh
  • Solar Panel Area Needed is:
  • Total Energy = Light Energy * Area of Panel * Efficiency of Panel

25.6 kWh = 6 kWh/m2 * X Meter2 * .12

  • X = 35.5 sq Meters of Solar Panel
  • Roughly 20 feet by 20 feet.
