  Introducing the
Solar Super Capacitor (SSC) 

   It makes and stores electricity from night-day temperature
change.

  Check_Mark_Orange_Bkgnd.jpg Nontoxic  It is primarily ceramic.

  Check_Mark_Orange_Bkgnd.jpg No moving parts

powers ten "room lights" (Start here)
     Video 2 powers a small motor
     Video 3 powers a "MP3" player
     Video 4 demos SSC buried in asphalt "roads"

SSC Physics Principle
Not photovoltaic. Not thermocouple. Not Peltier. 
Rather, a "stored-thermoelectric" principle:  
                        Sample Installations
                                    Highways, Streets, Roofs, Walls,
                                    Parking lots, Deserts, Lakes, etc.

How SSC Scales-Up
Whereas, the videos show small-scale versions
of SSC (low voltage and low capacitance), 
production-scale versions are estimated* below:
 

              SSC Costs  
                 Production-scale costs are estimated* below:
Energy_vs._Road_Length2                      One-Time Manufacture and Installation Costs:
 




                            $2,500 per SSC Capacitor "Core"


                             $130,000 per MegaWattHour


                             $4,000 per Household


                             $3,000,000 per Mile of Road

 
                     
                       *Estimates are order-of-magnitude, only.

Remember, SCC performs electricity generation and storage.
