Zadie Smith is a successful British novelist who caused a sensation in the publishing world
at the age of 21 when the first 80 pages of her first novel were sold to a publisher. She was born
on October 25, 1975 in a working class area of London. Her mother grew up in Jamaica and
emigrated to England, where she met and later married an Englishman. Zadie was originally
named Sadie but when she was fourteen, she changed her name to Zadie because it sounded
more exotic.
Zadie attended state primary and secondary schools and she later went on to get a degree
in English Literature from the University of Cambridge. While she was in her final year of
university, she completed her first novel, White Teeth. The novel was an instant success and
won several literary prizes, including the Whitbread First Novel Award. Its a coming-of-age story
about three ethnically diverse families set in multicultural London. The novel tackles subjects
such as history, multiculturism and war. White Teeth has been translated into over twenty
languages and the novel was adapted into a television drama.
Her most recent book On Beauty won the prestigious Orange Prize for Fiction. Zadie Smith
continues to write essays and short stories for magazines. Her writing has provided people with
a valuable insight into contemporary topics, in particular, multicultural families. Despite her
young age and modest background, Zadie Smith has become one of the leading novelists of her
generation.

GOING SOLAR!

Solar energy
Solar technology is one of the many ways in
which you can reduce your ecological footprint
and cut costs on your utility bills at the same
time. Currently, many companies, factories and
even homes are powered by photovoltaic
installations. Photovoltaics (PV) is a form of
solar technology that produces electicity from
sunlight without the use of batteries or other
electrical devices. Photovoltaic panels or cells
that are attached to the roof of a building collect
the sunlight and turn it into electricity. These
panels are fitted onto a roof individually, but the
warmth of the sun helps to secure the panels to
the roof making it weather-resistant. PV is
rapidly gaining in popularity and is probably the
fastest growing source of alternative energy.

Where to see practical applications of PV
Go see the Oakland University public demonstration project at 4000 Meadowbrook Drive. The
university installed a photovoltaic roof on one of their student apartment buildings. The roof is split
into four parts in order to face north, south, east and west to maximise exposure to sunlight. It
collects light from the sun and turns it into energy and is also aesthetically pleasing to look at. The
power that is not used by the photovoltaic apartment building is then fed to other buildings on the
campus. In this way, just one building with the photovoltaic system is able to power several other
buildings that have not installed this type of technology. On the other hand, on cloudy days when
the sunlight is not adequate to power the building, the photovoltaic building is able to feed off the
power from other buildings that it is connected to. There is no electricity bill and never a shortage
of hot water!
Find out more at www.oakland.edu/energy/solar.htm

Or come and visit the Alternative Energy Commission (AEC) demonstration solar home. See a home
that is powered solely by solar energy and get information about solutions that will suit your own needs.

How PV benefits you and the environment!
Using photovoltaics is good for the environment because this kind of energy doesnt create any
pollution. Without any effort, the use of this system, as opposed to other forms of energy, helps the
environment. The cost of buying and installing a photovoltaic system depends on the size of the
house and the amount of available sunlight, and while the initial cost may seem high, in the long run it
will pay for itself by eliminating electricity bills. In addition, photovoltaic systems have low maintenance
costs.
