Fronius believes that the best module-level rapid shutdown solutions are not single vendor solutions. Therefore, the string inverter manufacturer is driving industry standards and supporting industry innovation to drive down cost and allow customer choice.
With O&M costs accounting for close to a quarter of the lifetime running expenses of wind turbines, industry sentiment has shifted dramatically in recent times.
Significant investment in consumer education required
Solar panel prices plunge seriously this week, due to the price competition expanding globally. The fragile and uncertain installation backdrop and policy shocks are all contributing to a softer demand environment as well as the solar prices. In China, as Chinese module makers have already stung by China demand woes, face mounting pain as growing inventories leave many companies starve for cash. The record low bidding prices for power plants in China are the evidence that Chinese module makers are striving to secure the limited orders. Furthermore, in order to meet the shipment target in 3Q, Chinese module makers have expanded their battlefield from China to other major solar markets, especially in the US, Japan, India, and Euro. Since the 2nd tier Chinese module makers target at regions with no punitive tariff enforced, especially in India and Japan, solar panel prices remain pressured as they continue to dump excessive inventories out of China.

Baker Electric Solar and San Diego Academy announce plans to install a 139.65kW solar system in Q4. The rooftop and carport installation will save the school more than $55,000 in energy costs in the first year alone.
A number of notable changes have taken place in the US energy market in recent years. On the one hand, stricter environmental regulations have led to the closure of coal-fired power plants while the construction of new gas-fired plants has gained greater momentum thanks to the availability of cheaper sources such as shale gas.
