Perlight Solar's line of USA Series solar modules is now listed for use by the California Energy Commission. All major manufacturing steps for American-made modules are done in Texas, including cell tabbing, stringing, layup and lamination. These panels are designed to take advantage of the domestic PV supply chain and can include over 90% domestic content, making it perfect for Buy American, ARRA and Ex-Im Bank funded projects.

The USA Series includes high efficiency monocrystalline modules such as 60-cell 250w and larger 80-cell 350w modules. Product has already shipped out to projects in Arizona, Florida, Maryland, New York and Ohio.

Gideon Needleman, Perlight's Business Development Director commented, "We are very excited to be making our solar panels in the USA.

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.
