Grid Connected Solar Photovoltaic
IEEE Toledo will be hosting a dinner and Grid Connected Solar Photovoltaic presentation on Thursday November 3. This event will be held at the Electrical Industries Building (TECA Office), 727 Lime City Road, Rossford. Dinner starts at 5:30 pm and the lecture starts at 7:00 pm. The cost for dinner is $25 for non-members, $20 for members, and $10 for students. You can attend the lecture only, which is free.
Small island states strive to continue economic growth, mitigate climate change and reduce their dependence on imported fossil fuels. They offer a geographical landscape which encourages distributed generation in order to provide power to end users that are located in remote areas. Often times, this distributed generation is accomplished through grid connected solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Because they do not emit greenhouse gas, and they use the free light from the sun to generate electricity, solar PV systems provide renewable energy in a sustainable way. This presentation will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with grid connected solar PV in island states. It will also propose potential waste management strategies of such solar PV systems from cradle to grave.
