AltEnergyMag sat down with Klein Tools to discuss the Electrician of the Year Contest. The grand prize winner will receive a 2015 Ford F-150 XLT Crew Cab customized by off-road specialists Addictive Desert Designs in Mesa, Arizona.
The current suggested guideline by the NRCA (National Roofing Contractor Association) for the installation of a PV system on a steep slope asphalt shingle roof as far as the flashing of the PV system stanchions, shows the metal flange to be applied underneath the roofing paper.
Contractors, builders, roofing companies, and property managers have a rare and unique opportunity to profit from the expansion of solar as it becomes more and more mainstream.
Tests 12 - 1000V AC and includes independent, bright flashlight
The minimal seismic anchors were installed at a rate of up to five per man hour. Combined, the arrays were spread over more than ten individual flat roofs.
This product innovation provides benefits of module-level monitoring while avoiding all the complication, costs and disadvantages of existing module-level products.
As PV plants come out of warranty from the installer, an understanding of what needs repair, when, and how to do it is just as important as what equipment was selected and how it was installed.
When Satcon, the former inverter manufacturer, closed shop, Photon Energy moved quickly and hired key technical personnel.
Working in two shifts in record low temperatures and stormy conditions, installers completed the ground mount array in just 36 days (during a record 60-year storm with 24 inches of snow and 60 mph gusts).
The WE CARE Solar team required a better way to log system performance data and monitor usage patterns to ensure that correctly-sized PV power systems were being implemented in the medical clinics.
Data quality derives from the combination of accurate instruments plus Data Encoding Standards: one can take highly accurate data samples but if there is no agreement as to what the data means, the data could be considered to be of low quality because of its inability to improve the decision making process.
Getting a jump on proposed UL 6703A standard
Chamelic is a spin-out company from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Leeds. Chamelic Ltd was established in February 2006 to exploit innovative chemicals discovered and developed at the Institute Particle Science and Engineering (IPSE).
Sade's idea was to eliminate the need for masts or poles to secure a solar array to concrete foundations. Instead, the tracker would use a ballast pan filled with dirt, gravel or sand.
This 20MW Demonstration Project is the first power plant in Hainan, and it is a joint venture of Hainan Tianneng Electricity Co., Ltd., Hainan Provincial Water Conservancy & Hydropower Group Co., Ltd. and Yingli Solar. Various types of solar mounting systems, such as ground screw, concrete post, roof power plant and BIPV, will be employed.

Equipped with an extremely low power, smart interface the Smart SMP pyranometers offer industry standard digital and amplified analog outputs within the well-known CMP series housings. The output range is programmed so that all SMP pyranometers have identical sensitivities, allowing easy installation and exchange for recalibration. Serial communication allows access to measurement data, instrument status, operating parameters and calibration history. Building on the proven CMP Series design and technology that is used around the world, the new SMP pyranometers add digital signal processing and interfaces optimised for industrial data acquisition and control systems.
