HDS Division, who left for the Esso
Belgium refinery in Antwerp on Ja-
nuary 8. He was accompanied by his
wife Braula and three of their four
sons, Rudy Roland (19), Nestor Nikito
(15), and Oscar Otilio (10). Their el-

Otilio will assist Esso Belgium for
about one year as Controlhouse Su-
perevisor for the startup of the Va-
cuum Pipestill, Gas Oil Hydrofiner,
MEA units and Sulfur Plants which
will be put into operation as part of
their new HDS facilities. At Esso Bel-
gium, Otilio will join Lago's Process

Un Fuente di Energia
Imagina Bo un fuente di energia cu
no ta contamina ambiente, cu por pro-
vee por lo menos un parti di mundo
su necesidad di energia economica-
mente pa semper. Claro cu un for-
ma di energia asina lo ta ideal. Y e
ta existi tambe.
Solo ta bombardeA Estados Uni-
dos continental so, cu cantidadnan
grand di energia. A ser calculA cu
e energia solar aki den 1974 tabata
igual cu mas di 75 bez e cantidad di
energia cu America ta consumi ac-
tualmente. Un poco di e energia aki
por ser convert den calor usando co-
lectadornan di calor of den electrici-
dad door di usa cristalnan di silicon,
e segundo element mas abundante
den e capa rond di mundo. Ta e ul-
timo aki ta ofrece e desafio mas gran-
di pa tecnologia, ya cu otro formanan
di energia ta bira dificil pa haya.
Solo ta ofrece mas energia cu hen-
ter e mundo jamas lo tin mester. Y
e energia aki ta limpi y gratis.
Anto, pakico nos no a cambia pa
Energia Solar?
E contest, ironicamente, ta paso-
bra e ta much carol. Pasobra aun-
que energia solar ta liber den natu-
raleza, convirtiendo esaki den electri-
cidad pa uso masal no ta comercial-
mente economic compare cu otro
formanan di energia.
Pero energia solar ta ser usa na
lugarnan di mundo na unda otro me-
dionan di potencia to ta demasiado
caro pa mantend y na unda potencia
electric commercial no ta disponible.
Un compania, situa na Wakefield,


den Horizonte . .
Massachusetts, cu ta activamente en-
volvi den e aplicacion commercial di
potencia solar ta e Corporacion di
Potencia Solar, un subsidiario di Ex-
xon Enterprises.
Segun Lou Shrier, gerente di pro-
yecto pa Exxon Enterprises y alavez
un miembro di e junta di Corpora-
clon di Potencia Solar, e compania
ta probando activamente e mercado-
nan existente y ta trata di expanded
nan.
"Reconociendo e potencia solar di
energia como un fuente sin limited,
nos kier mir6 ser poni den uso aki na
mundo," Shrier a bisa. "Tambe nos
ta realize com caro e ta. Y pesey,
mientras nos ta test e mercadonan pa
potencia solar di awendia, nos ta ha-
ci investigaciones na Linden tambe
pa busca sistemanan avansA cu podi-
ser lo no bin den uso pa un ddcada."
Pa provee potencia electric bara-
ta den cantidadnan commercial, e in-
vestigacion lo mester vence dos pro-
blema inmenso e costonan inicial
y necesidad di lugarnan grand pa co-
lecta energia.
Energia Solar a ser usa hopi vez
den espacio pa duna potencia na
mas cu 600 satelite di Estados Uni-
dos, incluyendo e estacion espacial
di Skylab. Pero e cualidad especial
di celnan di silicon tabata traha na
man y ta demasiado caro. (Electrici-
dad ta ser produce ora cu un unidad
di luz for di solo, yamA un "photon",
ta dal ariba e cel creando un carga

An Energy Source

on the Horizon . . .
Imagine a non-polluting energy
source which can supply at least a
part of the world's energy needs eco-
nomically forever. Clearly, such a
form of energy would be ideal. And
it does exist.
The sun bombards just the conti-
nental United States alone with large
amounts of energy. It is estimated
that in 1974 this energy was equal to
more than 75 times the amount of
energy actually consumed by the
country. Some of this energy can
be converted into heat using thermal
collectors, or electricity by using crys-
tals of silicon, the second most abun-
dant element in the earth's crust. It
is the latter which offers the greatest
technological challenge as other
forms of energy become harder to
find.
The sun offers more energy than
the entire earth shall ever need. Clean
energy. And free.
So why haven't we switched to so-
lar energy ?
The answer, ironically, is because
it's too expensive. For while solar
energy occurs freely in nature, con-
verting it to electricity for mass use
is not commercially economical com-
pared to other forms of energy.
But solar energy is being used -
in areas of the world where other
means of power would be too costly
to maintain and where commercial
electric power isn't available.
One company, located in Wake-
field, Mass., which is actively invol-
ved in the commercial application of
solar power is the Solar Power Cor-
poration, a subsidiary of Exxon En-
terprises. According to Lou Shrier,
project manager for Exxon Enterpri-
ses, and a member of the board of
Solar Power Corporation, the compa-
ny is actively testing existing markets
and seeking to expand them.
Recognizing the potential of solar
energy as an unlimited source, we
want to see it put to use here on
earth," Shrier said. "We also recog-
nize how expensive it is. So while
we're testing the markets for solar
power available today, we're also do-
ing research at Linden to look at ad-
vanced systems which may not come
into use for a decade."
To provide cheap electric power in
commercial quantities, the research
will have to overcome two immense
problems initial cost and the ne-
cessity for large areas for energy col-
lection.
Solar energy has been used time
and time again in space to power

Farewell Party for Controller Tom Keevan at the Esso Club January 23
A large group of manage-

hand at the Esso Club on
Friday, January 23 to bid
farewell to Controller Tom
J. Keevan, who has been
named Controller of inter-
national Petroleum Ltd. In
Bogota, Colombia. In these
pictures, Mr. Keevan can

more than 600 United States satellites,
including the Skylab space station.
But the space-quality silicon cells
were made by hand and are prohibi-
tively expensive. (Electricity is pro-
duced when a unit of light from the
sun, called a photon, strikes the cell
creating a positive and negative char-
ge.) As part of the national solar pro-
gram, research on a method for mass
production of the silicon cells is be-
ing conducted in an effort to lower
the cost to something less than a do-
lar a watt from the present $20 to
make solar power competitive with
other forms of energy.
The second problem, however, may
be more difficult to overcome if solar
energy is to be used on a massive
scale. The sun's energy is so diffused
it would require energy collectors
spread over a substantial area to col-
lect sufficient amounts to power ma-
jor appliances or entire homes.
Solar Power Corporation's basic
unit or module, which contains five


An Energy Source
2.17-inch diameter wafers wired in
series or parallel, is more than a foot
in length and about three inches wide.
The module is capable of producing
1.5 watts of electricity at maximum
efficiency in direct sunlight, necesi-
tating a large number of modules for
even a small appliance.
A 1,000-watt airconditioner, for
example, would require 667 of these
modules operating at peak efficiency.
Shrier admits that for most applica-
tions using the most advanced pre-
sent technology, solar power is pro-
hibitively expensive. But it does have
some applications which are being
explored by Solar Power Corporation.
"Solar power today is desirable for
instruments in remote areas where
refueling or maintenance would be
difficult and perhaps even more cost-
ly over a period of time than the ini-
tial cost of the solar equipment," said
Shrier.
One area where regular refueling
visits are costly is the Gulf of Mexico.

lights have been operating on solar
power. Energy from the sun strikes
80 collector panels to provide 120
watts of peak power which provides
the necessary power during the day-
light hours while charging the batte-
ries for use at night. The batteries
are capable of providing power for an
extended period should a storm last-
ing several days cut down on the
amount of energy being collected.
Other applications for solar ener-
gy at this time include railroad grade
crossings, other railroad signal equip-
ment requiring low power, radio re-
peater stations and, interestingly, a
television receiver bringing educatio-
nal programs to students in a school
in a remote part of Africa. A fairly
new application is a six-module unit
which will keep a pleasure boat's bat-
tery constantly charged.

With the tropical sun constantly
over our island, Aruba would be an
ideal experimental site for this future
energy source.
