Solar Panels Quotes by Elon Musk, Frances Beinecke, Ted Lieu, Bill McKibben, James Balog, Barack Obama and many others.
So, there’s quite a big keep-out zone, and when you factor the keep-out zone into account, the solar panels put on that area would typically generate more power than that nuclear power plant.
I have visited people whose health has been endangered by tar sands oil. I have watched neighbors struggle to recover from Superstorm Sandy. I have seen solar panels and wind turbines become an increasingly familiar part of the landscape.
Deeper investment in green energy technology will create millions of high-paying American jobs that cannot be outsourced, rebuilding our nation’s manufacturing economy, starting with wind turbines and solar panels stamped ‘Made in America.’
The roof of my house is covered in solar panels. When I’m home, I’m a pretty green fellow.
With each month that passes, a solar panel gets 2 or 3 percent cheaper. So while we’re holding the fossil fuel industry in check, the engineers in the renewable energy world are undercutting them from the other side.
Each of us can and must shift our behavior according to our ability. For some, that means changing diet, shopping locally, or putting solar panels on their house. For others, it means using their voice to inspire transformative change.
It was basic research in the photoelectric field-in the photoelectric effect that would one day lead to solar panels. It was basic research in physics that would eventually produce the CAT scan. The calculations of today’s GPS satellites are based on the equations that Einstein put to paper more than a century ago.
[Hillary Clinton] talks about solar panels. We invested in a solar company, our country. That was a disaster. They lost plenty of money on that one.
Even if you don’t care about the environment whatsoever, solar panels are really cool, and are an investment because they save money in the long run.
My house is covered in solar panels, I’m a great believer in all this – we all should be doing this.
I know coal is dirty, but that’s all we got. So as much as I’d love to have clean energy – solar panels everywhere – right now, all we have is coal. The people I love, and the people that I grew up with, that’s their livelihood, and I don’t want to see them starve.
Bringing solar as a renewable energy resource for those who are not able to install solar panels on their roofs allows more communities to benefit from a solar array.
Sunlight and wind are inherently unreliable and energy-dilute. As such, adding solar panels and wind turbines to the grid in large quantities increases the cost of generating electricity, locks in fossil fuels, and increases the environmental footprint of energy production.
We need to invest dramatically in green energy, making solar panels so cheap that everybody wants them. Nobody wanted to buy a computer in 1950, but once they got cheap, everyone bought them.
The Saft America plant, a giant 235,000-square-foot mass of concrete, is a modern marvel: its roof covered in row upon row of solar panels, embodying the renewable future that the batteries manufactured within are meant to sustain.
I am not bald – my head is just a solar panel for a sex machine.
Where I live, if I put solar panels on my roof I’m not allowed to sell that energy back to the grid. I can’t change that restriction myself. I need our local decision-makers to fix that.
There is nothing conservative about bailing out Wall Street. Likewise, there is nothing progressive about billion dollar loans to millionaires to build solar panels.
The roof of my house is covered in solar panels. When Im home, Im a pretty green fellow.
Shortly afterwards, I did a third one to repair the robotic arm of the station. This arm plays a very important role in the ongoing expansion of the station as well as in the deployment of solar panels.
If it feels right to recycle our waste or purchase solar panels for our house or rescue an animal or adopt a child or stop someone from hurting another or donate our time, money, or goods to charity, then do it.
Here at this site, Solyndra expects to make enough solar panels each year to generate 500 megawatts of electricity. And over the lifetime of this expanded facility, that could be like replacing as many as eight coal-fired power plants.
America is home to the best researchers, advanced manufacturers, and entrepreneurs in the world. There is no reason we cannot lead the planet in manufacturing solar panels and wind turbines, engineering the smart energy grid, and inspiring the next great companies that will be the titans of a new green energy economy.
I think, in a lot of places, the solar panels are a badge of honor; they’re trendy. If you go to Hawaii or Japan, people even install fake solar panels because it’s cool and it’s popular. And so I think solar panels have gotten a lot more attractive. They’re sleek, black, they look good on a roof.
It doesn’t matter how many solar panels you install if you don’t simultaneously shut down coal and gas burners.
I hope climate science becomes the big thing. And then what I want is electrical engineers to solve the world’s energy problems, energy distribution problems. I want mechanical engineers to make better transportation systems. I want chemical engineers to develop better solar panels, and so on.
When you have solar panels, your electricity gets there for free, no one’s figured out how to meter the sun yet. And that’s good.
People forget: solar panels don’t put themselves up. Wind turbines don’t manufacture themselves. Businesses don’t retrofit themselves to waste less energy and water, nor do homes weatherize themselves.
We can deploy a half a billion more solar panels.
I love the idea of solar panels, but they are very expensive. I hope, as living sustainably becomes the norm, they will become more accessible.
