Renewable Energy

We partnered on this project This our first venture together

We hope to build many more What we do here is we receive organics from the marketplace We convert them through a biological process to create clean renewable energy that we’re selling to the Cleveland public power’s grid 13 megawatts is the offsetting about 600 homes worth of power and with these 8 plants; Most of the parts that you see in the facility have now come from Ohio

Well… we make energy and we make it from waste So Where most power plants or petroleum facilities, refineries would pay for a raw material, we get paid to take our raw material We use a lot of electricity down stairs and we were looking for some way to cut on that a little bit We called Builddown alternatives and talked to them as well as several other companies about solar panels Really kind of… trying to decide if solar really would work in Cleveland

After we did a bit of research we found that… yeah… it can work So two years ago we putted 137 solar panels on our roof And we’re really happy with that We try to get as of grid as possible We gave them few ideas and the one that really popped up the best was this carport project

We have agreed on a car charging station where church members can come in, while they’re meeting here, having services here, charge their electrical vehicle and drive home What they have actually done here is that they auctioned off ten parking spaces under the carport These protected shaded parking spaces are shaded in the summer time and protected from the snow in the winter time This array is going to offset 90% of the church’s annual electric level We installed a photovoltaic system to supplement the lighting being used for the parking garage; It’s meant to help supplement the electricity about 3000 dollars a year

We’ve got a nice skilled workforce available in different colleges and in community colleges Universities in the state are very good about training people So we’re able to find skilled workers; In the early days, we have to train everybody ourselves We, in the Three years, have proposed with over 100 industry partners Obviously they get the opportunity to work with some talented faculty to help solve their problems and as well

There are students that get the benefit of working on this breakthrough research And through that benefits, they’re untimely going to work for some of these companies or they go to startup their own companies in these spaces and help contribute the local economy Over half of the students will stay in the northeast state of Ohio This what brought me to Cleveland, was this job and this opportunity to in alternative energy This the sundown century sun farm

It’s an outdoor test facility, featuring fourteen solar trackers, 148 solar panels and room for up to 8000 material samples on sun of the time We’re interested in the life time degradation properties of solar modules and materials And if you make a module that it is twice as long, you can effectively make it cost half as much; I manage a group of engineers who’re working on the development of our e-card 250 watts micro inverter eQED entry to this market is to focus on reducing the cost of this type of equipment The project behind is 103 KW solar array that powers more than thirty percent of the electricity needs for the village of valley view recreation center

It’s a great project Without those incentive, the project would have never happened If to these other sectors, in the next seven years If you look at fuel cells, waste energy, energy management, energy efficiency, grid level storage We’ re looking about 7000 jobs in those sectors alone and that without even counting the supply chain

What I think is important is the way we diversify the economy by helping to create the advanced energy industry, that’s really an exciting sector that can really help us go a long way toward that goal of developing more resilient economy north-east Ohio In our core, we know how to make things in northeast Ohio We got a strong legacy of supply chain across a number of industries and if you think about advanced energy, that requires a lot of processing equipment, a lot of facilities, a lot of components and parts that we can make here So we’re really well positioned, we don’t only have the intellectual capital to develop this solution but then go ahead to produce them, manufacture them and sell them here… In many different ways, we cannot only save cost but also be friendly to the environment, be economically profitable It can be done, it can be done inexpensively, that it also can be a reliable energy source

The mission of leadco is to help to develop an offshore wind industry in the region We’re starting with a pilot project of somewhere in the order of five to nine turbines seven miles out from here Naturally, when you go out to the site, this turbines are very large In fact for those that are familiar with the turbines at likin electric, these turbines are approximately twice as big, so they are rather large machines Everyday, the city, the region and the people in it use and often help harvest the energy that propels us into the future

Many northeast Ohioans are moving toward a more direct and personal relationship with their energy consumption I moved here in 2008,and when I moved into the house, the house didn’t have an air conditioning system and I considered a conventional air conditioning unit But then I also thought how can I really hedge my energy costs for the rest of my time in this house and for the rest of life of this house So I looked at other options and I ended up putting in a geothermal heating and cooling system
