May 2010 ― Christopher Associates Inc. announces that a new professional association serving engineers and management in the photovoltaic cell and module manufacturing industries has been proposed. A formation meeting will be held on June 10, 2010 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Flextronics Corporation in Milpitas, CA.


Matthew Holzmann, president of Christopher Associates Inc., said, "The photovoltaic industry is moving fast. We are all pushing hard. There are few professional resources out there for the engineering and manufacturing community on an individual basis. We have tradeshows and some standards work being done, but engineering education, technology benchmarking and other professional issues and opportunities must be addressed as well. Hopefully we can begin a dialog to meet this need."

In order to facilitate the discussion, Flextronics Corporation has offered to host a formational meeting for such an organization. The meeting is open to all, and will be held at:
Flextronics Corporation
Building #1
Milpitas Conference Room
637 Gibraltar Court
Milpitas, CA 95035

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
