New at Intersolar - Single-axis Tracking System for Utility-Scale Solar

The use of a tracking system for a utility-scale project not only reduces LCOE, but also provides more usable power by broadening the power production curve to provide a smoother flow of energy from dawn to dusk.

Modeling Microinverters and DC Power Optimizers in PVWatts

PVWatts performs simplified PV system performance calculations using information about the array's geographic location, orientation, and a set of user-input loss factors

Solar Heating Combined with a Ground Heat Pump Is a Cost-efficient, Ecological Solution

Solar power was particularly efficient when combined with ground heat in terms of the profitability of investments.

Solar Powered Water Pumping: Combining two hot topics, Water and Solar

A solar powered water system is one of the easiest solar power systems to install and will ultimately save you time and money.

5 Things You Should Know Before Installing Solar Panels

Pay too little and you risk a dodgy product and no after-sales service. Pay too much and you'll end up waiting 10 years just to recoup your cost!

Case Study: Solar Tile Mount Provides Adequate Air Flow Between Solar Panels And Tile Roof

TRA Snow and Sun modifies Solar Tile Mount to adjust vertically for use on S-tile tile roofs to provide adequate air flow between solar panels and the tile roof.

Hawaii and Vermont set high renewable portfolio standard targets

Two states recently passed legislation that would require significant increases in renewable electricity generation.

Digital Inkjet Printing: An Opportunity for Further Reductions in Solar Energy Costs

With solar on the cusp of economic feasibility in many areas, incremental cost reductions such as those offered by digital inkjet printing technologies can make the difference between moving ahead with solar and sticking with electricity from the local utility

Ultracapacitor Usage in Wind Turbine Pitch Control Systems

Ultracapacitors have other significant advantages compared to batteries such as high power density, high efficiency, long service life, predictable aging, wide operating temperature range and light weight.

DIY: Don't Install Yourself

A professional installer will make sure you take the steps needed to take advantage of any incentives that may be available to you (most of which require the installation be handled by a professional)

Crude Oil's Impact on Renewable Energy: Energy Alternative or Energy Staple?

With the removal of fossil fuel subsidies and the continual drop in capital costs in renewables technology, the margins for the leading players in the renewables industry will increase.

FastRack510 Installed at Hawaii's Largest Airports

The airports are not only in hurricane prone regions, but also in areas of high seismic activity. The minimal seismic anchors were installed at a rate of up to five per man hour.

Maximizing the Benefits of Roof-Mounted Solar Arrays for Commercial Buildings

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.

Joyce Dayton Corp - Solar Tracking Drive Solutions

Joyce Dayton Corp - Solar Tracking Drive Solutions

Joyce Solar Actuators are designed to precisely position smaller solar tracking equipment. Their robust and efficient DC motor (24V or 36V) keeps power consumption to a minimum. Travel speeds remain nearly constant regardless of the load. Ideal for rugged environments common to the solar industry, these cost-effective SA actuators have an IP65 protection rating. Self-locking features in the mechanism ensure that the solar actuator will hold position throughout the daily tracking cycle. Specifications: • Double clevis mounting for easy installation • Clutch for overload protection • Adjustable limit switches for flexible travel settings • Reed sensor digital feedback for accurate positioning • Duty cycle is 25% (4 min. running, 12 min. rest) • Lubricated for life
