Principal Solar Advisory Board Member Peter Lynch Releases White Paper Supporting Feed-in Tariffs

The paper examines how feed-in tariffs (FIT) can accelerate investment in renewable energy

DALLAS--Principal Solar, Inc (PSI; OTC Pink: PSWW), a publicly traded solar energy holding company executing a unique roll-up strategy to create the world's first distributed solar utility, today announced the release of "Feed-in Tariffs: The Proven Road Not Taken…Why Not?". Authored by PSI advisory board member J. Peter Lynch, the paper examines how feed-in tariffs (FIT) can accelerate investment in renewable energy, with FITs providing a guarantee that anyone who generates electricity from a renewable energy source can receive long-term payments for each kilowatt-hour produced.


"A FIT program is the most effective way to spark rapid development of the massive amount of renewable energy potential in the US," says Lynch, a pioneer in the renewable energy sector of the investment banking industry. "A FIT removes investor uncertainty by ensuring that anyone with access to sun or wind can receive funding for a set period of time."

Lynch will host a Webinar, "Why Not? The Case for an American Feed-In Tariff," for The Principal Solar Institute on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 from 12:00 p.m.-12:45 p.m. ET.

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.
