Applied Math- 'Aina
Complete the last two calculations on the bottom of the Grade 6 Energy Load Collection Table:
1. Calculate AC Total Connected Watts [sum of (AxB) for all rows)
2. Calculate Total AC Average Daily Load [Total Column E]
On the back of the page, Describe what the AC average daily load means, what does this measurement tell you about the energy use for the grade 6 building?

On the Friday Science Notes paper, describe/timeline/map the process involved in design, fabrication, construction, transport, installation and operation for the offshore wind turbines.
Think about the following questions and share your ideas:
What are some advantages to locating these turbines offshore? What are some of the disadvantages or challenges as compared with land-based turbines? Do you think offshore wind turbines are a good choice for Hawaii’s sustainable energy solutions? Why or why not? (cite any other sources you consulted)
Determining cost of classroom energy load, review energy conservation strategies and Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative.
