  • Welcome. My name is Marlene Moore, and I would like to thank you for coming to our presentation on The Power of the Sun; Solar Energy for Nova Scotia. I would also like to thank Melissa Andrew of the Commons North Neightborholld Assocation for her assistance in organizing this event. Our goal tonight is to share some updated information on the use of renewable and sustainable energy sources, and our focus will be solar energy, and particularly solar for electrical generation.
  • Transcript

    • 1. Green Power Labs Inc. The SolarStar ® Team www.greenpowerlabs.com
    • 2. Green Power Labs Inc.:
      • leading solar assessment expert
      • reputation for exceptional quality of knowledge base and service
      • overall focus on the efficient deployment of solar energy systems
      • provide decision support and deployment strategies for smart investment in solar technologies

    • 3. Energy Prices and Lifecycle Costs: Solar Can Help
      • Rising energy prices have dramatically increased building lifecycle costs.
      • Solar technologies for heating and power generation are a viable option to reduce these costs.
      • It is estimated over 1000 square miles of commercial roof space is available in the United States for solar energy technologies.
      • using our high resolution mapping and advanced imagery of site specific obstructions.

    • 4. Why Start with Solar?
      • Solar energy is always “in your hands”: you can take advantage of it or waste it
      • Available solar resource is a unique asset of every architectural design
      • Solar technologies can be matched with essential building energy needs

    • 5. The First Step: Solar Suitability Assessment
      • SITE SPECIFIC assessment leads to efficient deployment of solar technologies
      • Recommended for existing buildings or those still in the design stage
      • Allows for a well-informed decision on investment in solar technologies
      • Determines the applicability and the best mix of solar technologies
      • Enhances solar system engineering
    • 6. Solar Science Behind the Scenes
      • Incorporates advanced imagery of site specific obstructions and their impact on solar radiation
      • Uses advanced methodology for computing solar radiation based on satellite images
      • Accurately reflects solar micro climate
      • Forecasts solar system performance
    • 7. Major Service Deliverables
      • Solar resource at the building site for every month of year
      • Energy gain at solar suitable surfaces of the building
      • Review of applicable solar technologies
      • Energy generation potential of applicable solar technologies/systems
      • CO 2 emissions reduction potential
      • Return on investment analysis
