Solar Power: Green, Renewable, and Eco-Friendly

The whole world is now beginning to understand the importance of our environment and what we have done to compromise the balance of nature.  The beauty is that we are intelligent beings and can change how we do things and in the process nurture the environment we co-habitat with. Being responsible for our actions concerning the environment has now become a necessity for our future in many ways, but in particular with the energy consumption that we have become so accustomed to.

Whether you believe in global warming or not, it just does not make sense to continue to use a resource that is non-renewable and will run out. When it is gone, it’s gone! Solar power solves this issue 100% on both counts:  renewable and non-toxic to us and the environment. It really is a no-brainer.

A 1-kilowatt solar power system eliminates the burning of about 170 pounds of coal, 300 pounds of carbon dioxide from being released into the air, and saves up to 105 gallons of water supply consumption monthly. Take for example fossil-fuel burning plants: Coal accounts for over half the nation’s electricity output. To produce coal into energy, approximately 65% is wasted, which means only 35% of the energy produced makes it to the power grid. By harnessing the power of the sun, no resources are burned or broken down that would generate unsafe gases that would ultimately harm nature. The simple fact that it doesn’t harm the environment in any way is reason enough for some to go solar.

We can take the power of the sun and use it for many different functions such as powering our homes or heating our pools. This diagram shows the percentages of some of the other uses of solar energy:

uses of solar energyThe FPL group outside of West Palm Beach, Florida, has recently erected a  500 acre solar hybrid plant. It is an experiment designed to see  whether conventional power generation can be married with renewable power in a way that lowers costs and spares the environment.  It estimates it will cut its natural gas use by 1.3 billion cubic feet each year, the consumption of 18,000 American homes. It will also cut carbon emissions by 2.75 million tons over 30 years, the equivalent of taking 19,000 cars off the road.  This is on a much broader scale of course then in residential use, but you get the picture of what a relief it will on the environment even applying solar power to your home.

Osprey Pointe Homes Boast Solar Panels

The following article was featured in the Kent Island Bay Times. Solair is in discussions with Osprey Pointe developer Shore Land Ventures, LLC to provide solar panels to the East Coast’s first geosolar community and the nation’s first carbon-neutral community.

STEVENSVILLE Homeowners at Osprey Pointe in Grasonville can manage energy usage from their family room television, place of business or their winter retreat in Florida, according to Mike Murphy, construction division president for Nexus EnergyHomes (NEH).

Nexus Vision, a patented interactive home control software with remote capabilities, is just one of the futuristic features in the project touted as both the nation’s first carbon-neutral waterfront community and the East Coast’s first geosolar community. Whatever you call it, county officials and citizens are excited about the new community designed to generate as much energy as it consumes, its ancillary technology and its possible impact to future new construction.

During an open-house at NEH’s new headquarters in Stevensville on June 2, County Commissioner David Dunmyer presented the group with a commendation on behalf of the county, saying he is especially excited as an environmentalist.

NEH VP Mike Mullen said, “Let’s make Queen Anne’s County proud,” before turning the program over to Murphy.

Located at Pierson Road and Maryland Route 18 in Grasonville, Osprey Pointe is the vision of Queen Anne’s County developer Jody Schulz of Shore Land Ventures, LLC in partnership with NEH.

Each of the 12 single-family homes and two duplexes starting at $745,000, will include all the high-end details expected of a luxury waterfront home such as granite counters, wood floors, 9-foot ceilings, crown molding, soaking tubs and more. Add geothermal heat pumps, photovoltaic solar panels, super insulated building shells, and environmentally conscious green building materials, and the result is a very comfortable and environmentally responsible lifestyle.

At the open house, Murphy unveiled the prototype for Nexus Vision a systems control software that allows the homeowner to view energy consumption by room, control temperature, alarms and even unlock the front door from anywhere.

“The system reads the home breaker by breaker, allowing you to view and adjust the way you are living,” said Murphy, adding that the remote locking feature could be handy when homeowners are unavailable to assist a family member who had lost a key.

The system is the perfect accessory to the homes Murphy said are “built different.”

He explained that traditional builders say a house should breathe. This might sound like a good idea, he said, but the result is a structure at nature’s whim; hot in the summer, cold in the winter and subject to air pollution.

“The house has to be tight as possible … the system should create the breath,” said Murphy.

He said a full-house HEPA-filtration system creates the breath in Nexus homes, producing clean air every 48 minutes.

Structural insulated panels (SIP), made of rigid Styrofoam sandwiched between boards, provide twice the insulation of a traditional foundation. Foam that expands by 700 percent, is installed at the rafters and stops energy loss in the attic. These materials create a home that is tighter, cleaner, quieter and stronger than traditional construction by an average of about 50 percent, said Murphy.

Once the home is air-tight, geothermal heat pumps move the earth’s temperature through a well and into the home.

“It takes energy to constantly alter the temperature by creating cold and hot air. With geothermal technology, we’re not producing (temperature), we’re just moving it,” said Murphy.

Solar panels to produce energy enough for systems come standard in the homes while extra panels to produce energy for accessories and entertainment systems are optional.

Murphy said they will work with buyers to calculate additional energy requirements if desired.

“The home itself is net zero. True net zero (consumption) is an option,” said Murphy.

The same technology available at Osprey Pointe was recently applied to three homes in Centreville’s Three Creeks, also a Shore Land Venture development.

Three Creeks was in its last phase with three lots unsold for quite some time, according to Schulz. Providing options for green technology has made all the difference in getting the final lots sold, he said.

Michael and Jeannie Whichard of Colorado, signed a contract for an NEH home at Three Creeks in early June.

Their $400,000, 2,700 square foot home on one acre will have all the green technology featured at Osprey Pointe minus the waterfront location, community dock and pool and possibly some of the higher-end details of the Osprey project.

“It has the new control system, geothermal heat and it’s insulated like a big cooler,” said Whichard, describing the SIP foundation and air-tight insulation.

The Whichards have opted for true net-zero energy consumption and hope to someday be completely off the grid. Because the system generates but does not store energy, they will need a battery or non-solar powered technology to operate after the sun goes down if they want to be off the grid independent of energy companies.

Michael Whichard is returning to a position with the Armed Forces News Command at Fort Meade and is currently living in Arlington, Va. He used every spare moment since moving from Colorado, to look for a commutable property with environmental aspects and land, for an affordable price he said.

“Finding land and convenience at a decent price is the hardest thing to do,” said Whichard.

The Whichard’s new home has a contemporary, open floor plan with no formal living room or dining room, just like they enjoyed in Colorado and were looking for in Maryland.

They are looking forward to living in Queen Anne’s County, hopefully by this fall, said Michael Whichard.
