Energy Efficiency | Engineering a Solar Microgrid
If we want a livable climate for future generations, we need to slow, stop, and reverse the rise in global temperatures and reducing our dependence on burning fossil fuels for energy is a key component in addressing climate change.
In this session, students were introduced to microgrids, a tool used by communities to sustainably source their energy. To better understand microgrids, students were challenged to model a community solar microgrid using a solar panel, cardstock, electrical wires, LEDs, and cardboard. Students also learned about different types of circuits to help them connect the solar panel to the various LEDs in order to create their solar microgrid.
