Miley Cyrus can help you save money

Dancing kid courtesy of Microsoft imagesVigorous twerking to the strains of Wrecking Ball can help you expend energy, if you're trying to lose weight after the holidays. But Miley Cyrus's music has also been demonstrated to save you energy—solar energy—and money on your utility bills.

Yes, a recent study has shown that playing pop and rock music to your solar panels increases their efficiency.  The high frequency sounds cause vibrations that enhance their ability to generate energy, according to the trendy researchers at Queen Mary University and Imperial College London.

 "We thought the sound waves, which produce random fluctuations, would cancel each other out and so didn't expect to see any significant overall effect on the power output," said James Durrant, Professor of Photochemistry at Imperial College London and unwitting punster.

"The key [sic] for us was that not only that the random fluctuations from the sound didn’t cancel each other out, but also that some frequencies of sound seemed really to amplify the solar cell output - so that the increase in power was a remarkably big effect considering how little sound energy we put in."

Sorry, classical music doesn't work. You can't really rock out to Lizst.

So for maximum energy benefits, turn up the volume on Miley's music so your solar panels vibrate, and then twerk like nobody's watching.

Sorry, my panels would get nothing less than Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd. Miley Cyrus is about as far off their taste as you can get!

Who would have thunk? Now I have to run some speaker wire up to the roof and find some weatherproof speakers, unless I blast it so loud in the room below, though I have many other choices for music I would rather hear...

Catchy title and funny post.  Who studies these kinds of things?!  Good information to pass along.  Maybe I should stop at homes that I see with solar panels and suggest Miley could save them money?

Does it generate enough to pay for playing the music, my ear doctor and law suits from the neighbors?  :)

Robin, yet MORE support for loud Rock from my bygone era!!!!!!! Very excited, as we are planning on building and putting in solar panels and I expect a fabulous sound system to boot! Now, I have a money-saving way to sell it to my husband!!

(Who cares that it ruins your eardrums when it will put money in your pocket for those hearing aids...details....)

Great title by the way!

Hello Robin,

The internet - where I run across the most interesting information.  Suggestion for further research --> Does Springsteen provide better results than Miley?

Well who would have thought that Miley Cyrus would bring such a positive result to solar energy. Twerking - the New Solar ... okay, I get it.  Or, maybe not. Got a good laugh ... creative post.
