Prepare a report about evenly divided between wind power and solar power.Your report should contain the following:

  • A discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of using wind energy including a discussion of the environmental impacts of the wind energy.
  • An analysis of how much electricity can be generated in/on 1000 m2 of land with Class 3, Class 4, Class 5, and Class 6 winds.Here you will need two calculations; one for an isolated windmill assuming that the wind can come from any direction and one for a windmill that is part of a large array of identical windmills assuming the winds blow constantly from a single known direction.
  • A summary of the ways in which solar power can be exploited including its various advantages and disadvantages and an explanation of the differences in structure and mechanism between LED and Photovoltaic cells.
  • A reasoned argument leading to an opinion regarding what type of concentrating solar power system would likely be the most promising avenue for future U.S. solar power development in this direction.
