Michael J. Coren for Quartz: We are all one when it comes to getting cheap power from the sun. Amidst the political rancor roiling the United States, one bright spot is home solar power installation. It keeps going up, and a study by PowerScout, a company that helps people switch to renewable energy, finds that to be true for households on both sides of the political divide. PowerScout used machine-learning algorithms and satellite imagery to detect rooftop solar panels on the homes of 1.5 million political donors in 20 states. In mature solar markets like California and Hawaii, Republicans and Democrats install solar at nearly equal rates, says Eric Roberts of PowerScout. In more nascent markets, Democrats have slightly higher installation rates than Republicans. These findings hold throughout the country. Cont'd...
Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, has secured a £ 27 million contract with East Anglia One Limited to supply and install the land cable connection for the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm. Comprising of 102 turbines, the £ 2.5 billion wind farm will generate sufficient electricity to power 500,000 homes.
EnergySage released today the results of its second annual Solar Installer Survey, the largest and most comprehensive business climate survey of solar companies nationwide. The report captures key observations of local, regional and national solar installers in both residential and commercial markets. More than 360 experienced solar installers across the United States responded to the survey, which was fielded and authored by EnergySage in partnership with pv magazine. Among the central findings, over half of solar companies surveyed (53%) report that their largest obstacle in closing sales is the confusion created by their competitors and its impact on consumer confidence overall. Similarly, the survey reflects an increasing trend noted in last year's report: customer acquisition has become more challenging due to increased competition and consumers reviewing more quotes before buying. However, the study also reveals that installer confidence levels have increased nationwide in the last year. Full Press Release:

Enzymes Increase Biogas Production from Organic Waste Material, Offering New Revenue Stream and Increased Renewable Electricity
Solar panel prices continue to drop slightly this week. Although the demand in Japan and India remains solid in near term, such demand still hard to reverse the downward price trend due to the competition initiated by major suppliers. In China, although many anticipate for installation rush before the FiT deadline June 30th, currently there is no any sign indicates that the demand has significantly jumped. In Japan and India, under the traditional hot season, major suppliers are still competing on prices to bid the orders with a mild descent. On the other hand, solar panel prices in EU, US, and he emerging countries are comparatively more pressurized. The persistent competition among major module players is resulted in lowing tariff rates for recently released PV projects. As the result, overall solar panel prices this week continue to drop.

Peter Koekoek for Daily Planet: A new web-based tool provides free access to accurate data about the solar power potential of your location – or any other part of the world. Recent research has revealed how Americans across the political aisle are united by renewable energy. Roughly the same amount of people with rooftop solar power installations are Republicans and Democrats. But geographically, not all places on the planet equally suitable for solar power – and that does not only include the amount of solar radiation that reaches the surface. The air temperature and terrain elevation may also impact how well solar equipment will fare in a particular area. In some regions, less solar panels are needed to generate the same amount of power compared to other areas. The Global Solar Atlas now provides you with a colourful world map that allows zooming in on areas of up to one kilometre. Cont'd...
