Tru e Tru e This is true. There are some solar technologies that store solar energy after the Sun goes down and they can keep generating electricity for a few hours, but solar energy IS dependent on the Sun... • Question 7 The units of kWh (kiloWatt hours) are used when measuring ___________. the amount of energy used/consumed the amount of energy used/consumed The units of kWh are used to describe the amount of energy used/consumed. The units of kW are used to describe power, and can be converted to energy by multiplying by the time over which the power was applied. In other words, kWh = kW x hours. • Question 8 Part I, Question 10. Based on the average annual consumption of 11,280 kWh per household, how many households can the ground mount facility at ASU West supply? about 350 about 350 3956183 kWh at ASU West/11280 kWh per household = 350.7 households • Question 9 What kind of material is used to make a basic photovoltaic cell? semiconductor (silicon) semiconductor (silicon) • Question 10 Part 1, Question 11 part a. The Palo Verde Nuclear Power Station generates more than 30 million (>30,000,000) MWh of energy per year. Tru e Tru e That's crazy, but true. This is a lot of energy!! 3810 MW x 8760 hours/year = 33,375,600 MWh/year • Question 11 Solar water heaters use black material as the background behind the water pipes to absorb heat. In the model solar water heater experiment, you expect a cup of water wrapped in black paper to be warmer after hours of Sun exposure, than a clear cup or a cup wrapped in white paper. Tru e Tru e The black paper helps absorb energy from the Sun causing the cup with black paper to be warmer than the control cup. • Question 12 Part I, Question 11 part b. How many MWh does the ASU West ground mount solar array generate annually? almost 4000 MWh/year almost 4000 MWh/year 3956183 kWh/year x 1 MWh/1,000 kWh (= 3956183/1000) = 3956 MWh/year [Show More]
