GreenLogic Renewable Energy

  1. 1. The Time is Now for Alternative Energy<br />Brett Nielsen<br />Energy Consultant<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. It’s All About Oil!Global Issues with Fossil Fuels<br /><ul><li>Becoming scarce and costly – fossil fuels are non-renewable resources, with ‘peak oil’ coming
  4. 4. Creates greenhouse gases, pollution and global warming
  5. 5. Emerging and developed countries rely and compete for cheap energy
  6. 6. Inventories under foreign control – challenges peace</li></li></ul><li>Peak Oil<br />
  7. 7. <ul><li> The American Petroleum Institute estimated in 1999 the world's oil supply would be depleted between 2062 and 2094, assuming total world oil reserves at between 1.4 and 2 trillion barrels and consumption at 80 million barrels per day.[4]
  8. 8. In 2004, total world reserves were estimated to be 1.25 trillion barrels and daily consumption was about 85 million barrels, shifting the estimated oil depletion year to 2057.[1]
  9. 9. The United States Energy Information Administrationpredicts world consumption of oil will increase to 98.3 million barrels per day in 2015 and 118 million barrels per day in 2030.[5]</li></li></ul><li>Solar Electricity (PV) for Residential<br /><ul><li>Replaces some or all LIPA provided power
  10. 10. Reduces carbon emissions by utility
  11. 11. Conserves fossil fuels
  12. 12. Provides cost savings to Homeowner</li></li></ul><li>
  13. 13. Why LIPA wants you to go Solar:<br /><ul><li>Burns over 90% fossil fuel
  14. 14. Rates are highest / most unpredictable in the US
  15. 15. Can’t build new power plants to meet growing demand
  16. 16. Under pressure to meet renewable energy quotas
  17. 17. Grid is heavily loaded, risking brownouts and blackouts
  18. 18. Implemented “Solar Pioneers” rebate program</li></li></ul><li>PV – How it Works:<br /><ul><li>Solid-state solar panels (PV) mounted on roof or racked in yard or integrated w/roof convert sunlight to DC power
  19. 19. Grid-tied inverter converts DC into clean AC power
  20. 20. AC power from inverter is used by house
  21. 21. Any excess turns meter backwards (net metering)
  22. 22. Solar power replaces some/all LIPA power</li></li></ul><li>
  23. 23.

  29. 29.
  30. 30.
  31. 31. Incentives<br /><ul><li> LIPA will pay up to $27,500 of system- currently 2.75 per watt.
  32. 32. State Tax Credit will pay for 25% of system cost- (capped at $5,000)
  33. 33. Federal Tax credit will pay for 30% of system cost
  34. 34. Final out of pocket cost is typically 1/3 of initial cost
  35. 35. Systems pay for itself in about 6 years.</li></li></ul><li>Ask yourself<br />What are you waiting for?<br />LIPA’s rates increase on average 5% a year!<br />Peak oil means drastic increases in energy costs!<br />The sun will hit your roof everyday, use it!<br />You can be a part of the solution, and it pays!<br />It’s about financial freedom from utility!<br />
  36. 36. Solar Domestic Hot Water<br />(DHW)<br />
  37. 37. Solar DHW Benefits<br /><ul><li>Reduces home operating costs
  38. 38. Reduces carbon emissions / use of fossil fuels
  39. 39. Will add value to the home
  40. 40. Adds ‘green’ element for retrofit or new construction</li></li></ul><li>
  41. 41. Solar DHW – How it works<br /><ul><li> Sun heats up roof mounted collectors
  42. 42. Controller pumps coolant mix through collectors
  43. 43. Coolant mix heats up water inside storage tank
  44. 44. Hot water is available for household use
  45. 45. Secondary heat source supplements Solar as needed</li></li></ul><li>
  46. 46.
  47. 47.
  48. 48. DHW Suitability<br /><ul><li>Access to the sun for at least three hours a day
  49. 49. Access to area under collectors for hose run
  50. 50. Must have space for storage tank and controller
  51. 51. Have tax liability to apply credits to
  52. 52. Able to make up-front investment</li></li></ul><li>Incentives<br /><ul><li>Federal Tax credit 30% uncapped
  53. 53. State Tax Credit 25% up to $5000
  54. 54. If using Home Equity Line – interest is tax deductible</li></li></ul><li>DHW Benefit Summary<br /><ul><li>Cuts carbon emissions: up to 5,400lbs/year
  55. 55. Can save up to 240 gallons of oil/year
  56. 56. Reduces dependence on fossil fuels
  57. 57. Velux system integrates attractively
  58. 58. Professional installation by GreenLogic</li></li></ul><li>Reasons to consider Geothermal HVAC<br /><ul><li>Increase home value

  68. 68. “Ground loop” allows heat to be drawn from the ground or pumped into the ground
  69. 69. In winter, Geothermal heat pump cools ground and heats house
  70. 70. In summer, Geothermal heat pump cools house and heats ground </li></li></ul><li>Principles Of Operation Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP)<br />
