THE PROBLEMS WITH CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES
FOSSILE-BASED ENERGY SOURCES FOR ELECTRICITY GENERATION: OIL, GAS, AND COAL.
The basic problems regarding fossil based energy sources are: a) underground reserves of fossil forms of energy is finite and
dwindling, b) reserves are not renewable nor replaceable, c) exploration costs are increasing, d) not healthful to climates, humans, plants and animals, e) may be a major cause of global climate change, f) sources controlled by many third-world dictators and g) too versatile of a commodity to burn for fuel.
SOLAR-ONLY ELECTRICITY GENERATION SYSTEMS
The problem and weakness in present systems that use solar-only technologies to generate clean electricity from natural sources, is limited to the partial day light hours when the sun is available, about 1/3rd of a clear day. When the sunlight is either diminished or when it is dark at night, the solar panels are useless, and therefore idle the other 2/3rds of each 24-hour period.
WIND-ONLY GENERATION SYSTEMS
Systems that use wind turbine technologies to generate natural electricity, are operational 24 hours a day, as they use wind, a source of power that is erratic and unreliable, to turn the turbine blades. Wind currents are gusty, blustery, strong one minute, weak the next or there are even calm periods of little-to-no wind. Wind-only systems, such those used by the giant three-bladed propeller wind farms, only generate electricity when the wind is strong enough to turn the massive 300 foot propellers. Further, each those systems are very costly to locate, build, transport, install and to maintain.
THE SOLARWIND SOLUTION: GREATER PRODUCTIVITY FROM SOLAR AND WIND SOURCES
SolarWind’s solutions to these separate problems are hybrid systems that integrate these two diferent sources of natural energy into a single, smooth and continuous generation of electricity, not only 24/7, but also 24/7/52™!
