are you serious Solar power is the way to go the current technology makes renewable energy like Solar power costly,unreliable and limited.. pangarap pa talaga ang mga ito
Me thinks that politicians with heavy investment in power companies will put a big tax on solar panels just to make it expensive.
Summarya small, single-PV-panel systems that produce about 75 watts can cost about $900 installed, or $12 per watt. A 2-kilowatt (1 kilowatt=1,000 watts) system that meets most energy needs of an extremely energy-efficient home can cost $16,000-$20,000 installed, or $8-$10 per watt. A 5-kilowatt system that completely meets the energy needs of many conventional homes can cost $30,000-$40,000 installed, or $6-$8 per watt.
75 watts = $900 (Php 36,900) - equivalent to 1 small light bulb
2,000 watts = $16,000 to $20,000 (Php 820,000) ECO house (less equipment meaning walang computers etc, just lights)
50,000 = $30,000 to $40,000 (Php 1,640,000) average house
So if you want a certain city to have a solar power plant, to power about 1,000 homes
1,000 * 1,640,000 = 1,640,000,000
1.6 billion agad,
and please remember that watt output of solar cells degrade overtime. Some factories create solar cells that can last 5 years, others 20 years but typically mas mahal yung longer lasting.
There are numerous factors that make the solar cells expensive
1. Manufacturing process especially the silicon ingot type solar cell is extremely expensive
2. Installation as well as land area needed can increase costs
3. Current laws in countries manufacturing solar cells tax companies creating the solar cells
Geothermal energy is the way to go.
Improved nuclear power plants.
[QUOTE=imanhorn;57876065]That depends, dahil sa long term masisira ng mabilis ang solar plates. tapos gastos na naman ulit.[/QUOT depende! vague,puedeng good or bad?
How about the high rise buildings in MM? Are they suitable for solar plates? If yes, why not.
Philippines has a lot of volcanos. Geothermal energy is the way to go.

Prices of solar plates are rising like I said, especially the silicon ingots plates because silicon ingots are difficult to make, can be rare in and is getting exhausted.
I'm for Solar energy that is until we find a way to harness solar energy cheaply.
The Sunrise Plan
This is coming from a country very dependent on nuclear power and experienced nuclear problem, so are we waiting for us to have nuclear power or just beat them to the punch?Prime Minister Naoto Kan is considering a plan to require all new buildings in Japan to install solar paneling by 2030. The plan, which would cover all new homes and commercial buildings, is expected to be announced at the end of the week at the two-day G8 summit in France
Nuclear power isn't exactly popular right now in Japan, so the government is looking at other sources of power to secure the country's future energy needs. A new initiative called the "Sunrise Plan", which isn't yet in force but should be announced this week at the G8 in France, could help the land of the rising sun turn toward solar energy for more of its electricity. source
One of philippines major export goods is solar panel, if we would supply japan with solar panel it would generate a very large industry our country would benefit jobs gdp etc.
It can even be home made. All you need are glass sheets, a silk screen set, and a special solution called "photovoltaic paint". What makes the solar cell system still expensive are the batteries. (And probably the glass sheets too unless you can easily afford to do away with your GI sheet roof and replace it all with glass)
NiMH batteries are great for cars and hooking them up to the electric grid is a good way of storing photovoltaic energy. But you still need considerably more batteries installed at home so that the energy keeps on getting stored while you're away driving your electric car.
The problem is; even if NiMH is considerably cheaper than the Li-ion battery, it night not be cheap enough for the middle-income households to invest in.
Solar Powered Submarines and Aircraft Carriers. Anyone?
Baka ang yellow submarine ni NOY ay solar powered na. Ahe he!
Nuclear powered Aircraft carriers and Submarines only requres refuelling after 25 years.
It's a good thing DOE is not buying fully on Solar and Wind. They say it will further increase our power rates.
Don't get me wrong, I support Renewables especially my faves, Geothermal and Hydroelectric. In the Philippine setting, the cheapest electricity is provided by Hydroelectric.
This is great. I think Israel has been doing this for so many years now. It's what I have in mind. Every home can have a solar panel roofing that can take care part ofits electricity needs. Not a power grid.
Too bad, it's for export to Japan. Wish they can lower the cost for local consumption.
