MAT-20037-XA121 Solve Problems with Math 2… Project & Resources Table of Contents Project Announcements Discussions Project Results JG FAQs Calendar Support Tools Project Instruc!ons Project Instruc!ons Listen # ” ! Competency In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competency: Solve prac!cal problems using basic mathema!cal calcula!ons Scenario You work for OneEarth, an environmental consul!ng company that specializes in building condi!on assessments, contaminated site remedia!on, and energy audits. Founded by an environmentally concerned ci!zen in 2010, OneEarth has emerged as the highest-quality and most comprehensive environmental services company in the region. Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU), a private nonprofit university located in Manchester, New Hampshire, in the United States, is dedicated to reducing its carbon footprint. SNHU has approached OneEarth for its assistance and exper!se in achieving this goal. Knowing of your desires to diversify your experience and professional por”olio, : your manager, Claire DeAir, has consented for you to join the team working with SNHU. You’re responsible for crea!ng a technical report based on an analysis of the data the onsite team has collected over the last few weeks to determine the cost-effec!veness of SNHU adop!ng solar energy. Direc!ons You’ve been asked to recommend whether or not SNHU should install solar energy panels on one of its buildings in Manchester, New Hampshire, to reduce the university’s carbon footprint. Using the data in the SNHU Site Data document in the Suppor!ng Materials sec!on, you will conduct a series of calcula!ons. With those calcula!ons, you will create a technical report for SNHU that explains whether the university should invest in solar energy by purchasing the system or by leasing. Your technical report should include the following calcula!ons and determina!ons: A calcula!on of the total electricity output of a solar panel system in kilowa”s hours (kWh) Use the following steps as a guide to making this calcula!on: How many panels fit on the roof, assuming the building is rectangular? (To make this determina!on, determine the number of panels that can fit along one side, and the number of rows of panels that can fit along the opposite side. Round down to the nearest whole number of panels in each direc!on and mul!ply to obtain the required number of panels.) What are the dimensions of the building’s roof in meters? What are the dimensions of each solar panel in cen!meters? (To convert from inches to cen!meters, mul!ply the dimensions in inches by 2.54 and do not round un!l the last step of the calcula!on.) Find the number of meters for each dimension. How many panels will fit on the roof in each direc!on? Round down to the nearest panel. When calcula!ng the number of panels, be sure that when you change from length to width on the roof, you also change from length to width on the panels. Find the area of the panels in meters to make sure that the area of the panels is less than the area of the roof. What is the total amount of electricity that could be produced by adop!ng a solar panel system that covers the en!re roof based on the average monthly sunlight? (1kW = 1000W, and 1 hour of sunlight produces 400 wa$s per panel) How many kW per hour of sunlight could be produced per solar panel? Per en!re system (based on how many panels could fit on the roof)? How many hours of sunlight are expected on average per month? Calculate the average hours based on the monthly data provided. Round down to the nearest tenth of an hour. What is the likely average amount of kWh produced per panel based on the average amount of sunlight per month? Per year? Round to the nearest hundredth kWh. What is the total amount of kWh that is produced by the en!re solar panel system per month based on the average monthly sunlight? Per year? A calcula!on of the difference between the current electricity usage of the building and the electricity : generated by a solar panel system in kilowa” hours and in dollars generated by a solar panel system in kilowa” hours and in dollars Use the following steps as a guide to making this calcula!on: How much electricity does the building use on average annually? What is the es!mated total amount of kWh produced by the en!re solar panel system on this building per year, based on the average monthly sunlight for the area? Based on the average cost of electricity in the area, about how much is the annual electricity cost for the SNHU building? Is the amount of electricity generated by the solar array sufficient to cover SNHU’s yearly electricity usage? If not, what
