Canadian PV Solar Assembly
Photovoltaic solar panels (PV for short) turn the sun’s energy into usable electricity. This post will outline the major components of a solar panel that make this form of sustainable energy generation possible. I will focus on how the assembly is performed in a Canadian context and leave the genesis story of the major component parts for another post. In Canada, humans and automated robots work symbiotically to achieve efficient, consistent, and reliable assemblies that are becoming recognized across the world.
Level 1 to 3 Explained
The capability of electric vehicle charging stations can be broken down into 3 separate levels from the least powerful (level 1) to the most powerful (level 3). There are several factors related to specific electric vehicles that may limit the level of charge they can access. For example, most hybrid vehicles will not be equipped to access level 3 charging and are limited to the less powerful methods of levels 1 and 2. I will cover all three levels in this post and go over the basic advantages and disadvantages of each level.
(aka Carbon Credits or Transferable Emissions Permits)
The goal of a “Cap and Trade” system is to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in an efficient and market-based way by putting a price on climate altering pollution. In general, this system sets an upper cap on GHG emissions below a level that is scientifically considered to be dangerous. Industries then buy, or are given, credits from the government where each credit represents a fraction of the total acceptable emissions over the year (ex. 1 credit = 1 ton of emissions).
This is our sustainable energy information hub, where we will be updating our customers, followers, and casual observers on the latest trends in the sustainable energy world. Topics included range from (but aren’t limited to) solar energy, batteries, electric vehicles, interesting videos, and new regulations that are relevant to British Columbians.
You can expect to see new content at least once month through this channel in an easily digestible format and with minimal technical jargon. The primary goal of this project is too keep you up to date with the latest in sustainable innovations and sustainability concepts that are relevant to you!
If there is ever a topic you would like to hear more on or have a new topic you’re interested in having featured on our blog, don’t hesitate to send us a message. We are always interested in your feedback and input!
I look forward to interacting with you all!
