Solar Projects at MG&E - Video

Solar technology is on the fast track! In this report, see some exciting new projects that are putting the sun to work for all of us.

Back Up For Solar Hot Water System An Over Looked Area

Often over looked is the significant effect a back up system can have on the overall performance of a solar hot water system. In a recent letter sent to Solar Industry Magazine I point out some design considerations.

Comfort + Convenience = Waste

The Department of Energy estimates that 25 percent to 30 percent of all energy used in public schools across the U.S. is wasted.

The Progressive Insurance Automotive X-Prize Competition

The intention and purpose of the Progressive Automotive X-Prize could actually not be higher… to simply see who could produce a vehicle that could achieve a 100mpg rating without cluttering up the atmosphere with noxious gasses.

Soaring Photovoltaic Demand Drives Record Levels of Equipment Spending

Chinese and Taiwanese Manufacturers Account for 80% of Q3'10 Incremental Capacity

Grid Interconnection Solutions for Solar and Wind Power Plants

AMSC Launches SolarTie™ Grid Interconnection Solution for Utility-Scale Solar Power Market.

Worldwide Solar Solution Demand

Greg Schulte is the President of Bonfiglioli USA, one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of gear motors, drive systems and planetary gearboxes. The company is also a primary developer of systems which integrate electronic, hydraulic and mechanical engineering. He was appointed to this position in June 2008 and oversees the Bonfiglioli Group's American subsidiary headquarters located in Hebron, Kentucky.

National Solar Jobs Census 2010

The National Solar Jobs Census 2010 is the first attempt to quantify the current employment and projected growth of the United States solar industry and is based on a statistically valid sampling of employers throughout the nation.1 The rapid increase of solar energy generation has warranted a credible study that examines the size and scope of the industry that until now, has been lacking.

Microinverter Advantages

The Enphase Microinverter System is the first and only commercially available microinverter system. It integrates state-of-the-art microinverter technology, power-line communications and web-based monitoring and analytics to define a completely new class of advanced solar energy solutions.

Nheolis' 3D Wind Turbines

Mr. Haddjeri incorporated NHEOLIS in early 2006, after identifying the potential of Bernoulli's principle when applied to wind power. Advised by Marc LASSUS, former CEO of GEMPLUS, he has invested his own time and money to develop NHEOLIS' breakthough technology from the concept idea to the market product.

What is a Landman?

When Randy Nichols established Cinco Energy Services in 1989 he saw a need in the land industry for quality land services and a greater need for a way in which to harness the land information. Randy knew that he could present companies a better solution using intuitive land knowledge and current GIS technologies. The idea was a success and over the last two decades Cinco has proven itself as one of the top land service providers in the nation

Preparing for a Solar Site Visit

One of the standard stages when considering solar for your home is the solar site visit. This involves a solar installer coming out to your home and inspecting your roof for the potential installation of a home solar system.

SEIA® President Rhone Resch Calls on U.S. Solar Industry To Be America's Number One Energy Provider

Rhone Resch, President and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA®), today addressed the Opening General Session of Solar Power International 2010 (SPI), the largest business-to-business solar energy conference and expo in North America. Below is the full text of his remarks.

We Need to Rebalance Earth's Energy Portfolio

The U.S. has taken a shortsighted approach to "financing" our energy future for decades. We are rapidly depleting our energy capital of oil, gas and coal at greater rates each year, and giving very little thought to the long-term (20-50+ years) consequences.

Consumer Attitudes and the Benefits of Smart Grid Technologies

Consumer attitudes about the benefits of smart grid technology are still in a formative stage. Most consumers are not aware of the term, much less the capabilities smart grid technologies will be bringing in the next few years. Several conditions are clear: * Consumers are very interested in learning how they can cut their electricity costs * Most are willing to pay to save * Some consumers would allow utilities to control systems in their home, but many are not willing to relinquish control even if they can override utility commands
