Blue Sky Energy, Inc. Teams Up with RES to Bring Solar to NASCAR

Blue Sky Energy, Inc. is on a mission to bring solar to NASCAR and the racecar community! Blue Sky Energy and RES have partnered with Peck Motorsports to become green leaders on and off the track.

SAN DIEGO, CA (October 15, 2012) – Pioneering solar product manufacturer Blue Sky Energy, Inc. has teamed up with Renewable Engineered Systems (RES) to bring solar to NASCAR. Using Blue Sky Energy's charge controller technology and the Survivor Power Systems solution, the Peck Motorsports' racecar hauler now powers its equipment and lighting with the sun. This one-of-a-kind system installed by RES helps Peck Motorsports break away from the pack in the race to become green leaders in NASCAR.

Peck Motorsports is dedicated to greening the racetrack and already runs its hauler's engine on biofuels. With the addition of Blue Sky Energy's Solar Boost 50 (SB50) charge controller and RES' Survivor Power Systems 1200, Peck Motorsports is taking the lead. Using Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology, the SB50 increases the system's charge current by up to 30%. Its three-stage charge control system insures the battery is properly and fully charged, resulting in better battery performance with less battery maintenance required.

"The Blue Sky Energy team is excited to join forces with a visionary leader like RES to green the motor sports market. There's a lot of untapped potential for racecar teams and fans to harness clean solar energy to supply their power and lighting needs. Blue Sky Energy is proud to be the preferred solar charge controller vendor to RES and turn this vision into reality," says Melanie Cullen, VP of Marketing and Operations at Blue Sky Energy.

Meanwhile, Blue Sky Energy is continuing to race ahead of its competition and recently released their feature-rich, entry-level Sun Charger 30 (SC30) solar charge controller. It packs new benefits into a traditional charge controller at a lower price and is available from wholesale distributors including AEE Solar, SunWize, Cascade Mountain, Hitney Solar, and the Alternative Energy Store.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
