Comments Off on Occidental College and Lettuce Office Create an Electrifying Urban Hillside Solar Array in Los Angeles

Occidental College recently powered up an urban hillside solar array that combines science, engineering, urban design and art. Occidental faculty collaborated with the environment design and research firm, Lettuce Office , to create a subtle shifting, rotating design that challenges the design of normal, utilitarian solar arrays . Two-thirds of the array’s 4,886 panels are installed on a southwest-facing campus hillside. With panels mounted just 2-3 feet above the ground, the low-profile array hugs the topography of the slope in a fluid form based on a mathematical expression known as a hysteresis loop . “[This] project represents a new paradigm for arrays as architectural objects that, like buildings, are expected to contribute aesthetically to their environment,” says Occidental President Jonathan Veitch.

Comments Off on Every Year of Delaying Legislation on Climate Change Adds $500 Billion a Year Says IEA

The normally conservative International Energy Agency is now saying that we must act faster to prevent climate change. Not only to prevent catastrophe, but also because the longer we wait, the more difficult and expensive it becomes to achieve the greater and greater cuts that are necessary to keep worldwide temperature rise to 2 degrees Centigrade or a 3.8 degrees Fahrenheit global average. 2 C is the least we can realistically hope and aim for now
