Enviornment

  1. 1. Wind and Solar Power <br />Brent Burkhart<br />MUS 294<br />
  2. 2. What They All About<br />Use wind<br />Require certain conditions<br />Can be located in a variety of areas<br />Wind farms can be made of many materials and integrated into many structures that already exist or can be the focal point of a new design<br />
  3. 3. Off Shore Wind Farms<br />The ocean is an ideal place for wind farms<br />The largest is Thanet, located off the coast of the UK<br />
  4. 4. Thanet<br />Covers 13.5 square miles<br />Produces on average 300 MW per year, enough to power roughly a quarter million homes<br />The power is harnest by the ocean winds and transferred to land via underwater cables<br />The whole project cost a little over one billion dollars<br />
  5. 5. Horns Rev II<br />Located off the coast of Denmark<br />Produces 209 MW per year, or about 190,000 homes power<br />
  6. 6. On-shore Wind Farms<br />Easier and less expensive to construct<br />Access for repair/upgrade regularly<br />Can be located on passes and gorges or on costal lines<br />Wind is not constant on land<br />Wind can often change directions<br />Roscoe Wind farm in Texas is the largest on-shore wind farm<br />
  7. 7. Roscoe Wind Farm<br />Covers 155 square miles<br />627 turbines<br />Total capacity to create 780 MW, almost three times as much as the largest off shore farm<br />
  8. 8. Biglow Canyon Wind Farm <br />Located near Portland, OR<br />Contains 40 square miles of 217 turbines<br />They can generate 450 MW<br />The location was chosen because of the high wind volume that this area experiences from the Pacific Ocean<br />This farm is set in a gorge and due to the incredibly steep walls winds average 10 mph<br />
  9. 9. Biglow Continued<br />
  10. 10. America and Wind Power<br />Americas first off shore wind farm will be the Nantucket Sound.<br />It will not only be a wind farm but also have a tourist side, allowing people to see how America creates and saves energy.<br />This will be the first large boom in ecological tourism<br />
  11. 11. Nantucket Sound<br />State proposed wind farm design<br />
  12. 12. What This Could Mean For Our Future<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dK1JBI9vdk0&feature=player_embedded#at=171<br />Here is a clip from Richard Sullivan explaining what wind energy could do for his state and the rest of the country.<br />
