Dynamic design and integrated software create platform for more valuable solar projects
With more than 11,500 visitors from over 30 countries, the 4th Intersolar South America exhibition ended in SĂ£o Paulo last week. 180 international exhibitors attended the event, providing important information to industry specialists, investors and project planers over the course of three days.
Following is a statement from Sean Gallagher, vice president of state affairs at the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), on the wide support of Amendment 4 by Florida voters:
Awards highlight stories of utility-solar industry innovation and collaboration
Baker Electric Solar has designed and installed a 167.265kW rooftop solar system for Meziere Enterprises. Energy cost savings projected at 60 - 70% annually.
The Series Feature Integrated SolarEdge Power Electronics, Double Glass and Monocrystalline Modules in both 60 and 72 Cell versions.
When solar enthusiast Jeff SchockaConger started his own company in La Crosse, Wisconsin, a sluggish market forced him to close up shop less than a year later. "The political climate means there's not much incentive for solar in Wisconsin," he explained. "The renewable energy market is growing twice as fast in Minnesota, so I figured it was time for a change."
This new interactive website was designed to help installers understand what products are needed to complete the installation on snow retention or solar panels for a standing seam metal roof.
Leading North American manufacturer delivers more than 45,000 all-black modules
The new high-voltage solar modules are ideal for large commercial and utility scale solar installations and require less balance of system (BoS) components compared to 1000 volt modules.
Anjana Pasricha for VOA News: Indian scientists have designed a “solar tree” that they hope will help overcome one of the key challenges the country faces in the generation of solar power. With photovoltaic panels placed at different levels on branches made of steel, “solar trees” could dramatically reduce the amount of land needed to develop solar parks. “It takes about four-square meters of space to produce energy which otherwise would have required 400 square meters of space. So almost 100 times the space is saved, which as you know is very valuable,” said Daljit Singh Bedi, chief scientist at the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in New Delhi, whose laboratory in Kolkata developed the tree. A scarce resource in India, acquisition of land to develop roads, factories and other infrastructure is a sensitive issue that has led to frequent and sometimes violent protests from displaced people.

MidAmerican Energy Company received the final order from the Iowa Utilities Board for Wind XI today. The board's action is a positive step toward the company's 100 percent renewable vision.
Three state-of-the-art, American-made solar trackers are now powering the Grenada Elementary School in Grenada, California.
SUNRNR of Virginia, Inc., a manufacturer of portable solar-plus-storage generators, is the recipient of one of eleven 2016 Individual and Community Preparedness Awards given by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for practices or programs that make communities safer, better prepared, and more resilient.
Louis Sahagun for The LA Times: The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors has rejected a controversial solar plant proposed for the Mojave Desert’s Soda Mountains, citing concerns that the project would destroy habitat and block ancient trails used by bighorn sheep for thousands of years. In a 3-2 vote, the board on Tuesday declined to certify documents required under state law in order to issue county permits for the project on public land along Interstate 15 near the entrances to Joshua Tree National Park and Death Valley National Park, and less than a mile from the Mojave National Preserve. “We endorse renewable energy, but this was the wrong project in the wrong location,” said Supervisor Robert A. Lovingood. Cont'd...

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.
