DOE to spend $7 million on North Alaska solar power, where it’s dark 24/7 all winter



(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The Department of Energy reported Monday that it will give $ 7 million dollars in specialized backing for sun oriented force boards for Native Alaskan tribes that might be helpful for a large portion of the year. That is on the grounds that these sun based boards are in the most distant north of the state, where it’s dull every minute of every day amid the winter:

The parts of Alaska where the DOE intends to spend the cash have nearly 24 hours of darkness in the winter, which is precisely when Alaskans need the most electricity. Alaska has nearly 24 hours of sunlight during the summer, but that’s when demand for power is at its lowest point as there’s no need to crank up the heat. Alaska’s harsh winters make the state’s per capita energy consumption the third highest in the nation.

The villages which will receive the cash influx don’t actually have much demand for power and are currently reliant upon diesel generators.

At the end of the day, the sun oriented boards will be futile when Alaskans need control the most. Be that as it may, they’ll work fabulously when force isn’t required.

Moreover, while northern Alaska has a huge measure of sun based force potential, as per a DOE study the sun powered boards will require diesel generators as reinforcement in the winter. Also, the study doesn’t analyze whether the system will spare Native Alaskan tribes cash or if the examination would even be monetarily practical.

Sounds like an incredible thought!
