Look, Ma… No Wires!

There are an estimated 43 million street lights in the USA and at least 55 million parking lot and parkway lights. Since they combine to use about 10% of all the electricity consumed in the USA, taking them to LED is a step in the right direction but going all the way to zero energy use is even better.

Solar Plant in Cernay Powers Up With DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions

System optimized for maximum power output and lifetime with DuPont™ Tedlar® polyvinyl fluoride filmbased backsheets and DuPont™ Solamet® photovoltaic metallization pastes

Rethinking Solar Farms for the 21st Century: Tapping Ocean Space

An example is in a brave venture in India where a 10 kW prototype floating solar generation facility is being developed for placement in a pond. Pilot projects of this nature have also started to take shape in countries like Japan, France and Australia.

Wind Energy in Oklahoma

Oklahoma's pro-business climate and excellent wind resource have helped to attract wind developers from across the country and the globe.

Geothermal resources used to produce renewable electricity in western states

Geothermal plants are virtually emissions free, and unlike renewable sources such as wind and solar, they provide an available, dispatchable source of baseload power that is able to operate at a relatively high capacity factor.

Green growth: an operational tool (and GDP has had its day…)

Natural capital, made up of several elements that nature provides us with as the sustenance and basis of our society (soil, raw materials, water, clean air, …) has an economic value: today any growth model that ignores this by now shared knowledge can no longer work.

Optimizing Solar Plant Implementation

In this paper, we will focus on a theoretical study and its application to a concrete site. We will try to answer the question: How can we optimize the implementation of horizontal trackers on a solar plant?

Solar Powered Generators & Energy Efficiency, Go Hand In Hand

Energy Efficiency is all about optimal and responsible power use and this is also exactly how one gets the most energy out of their solar generator.

10 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Solar Installer

Going solar should be a great experience - not a headache, and doing your homework upfront will give you something money can't buy - peace of mind.

Value of Solar Versus Fossil Fuels - Part 2

The value of solar power is being debated across the country by regulators, utility companies, and solar energy providers as distributed generation is increasing. This Energy and Policy Institute series consists of four separate reports summarizing recent developments, while providing recommendations for policy makers.

Energy Sources in a Disaster

Businesses need to invest in back-up renewable power systems to insure that they can continue working during and after a disaster. With such installations, businesses can prevent interruption losses caused by grid failure.

Unlikely Bedfellows: Mines That Run On Solar Or Wind Power

As mining companies continue to evaluate their power options in an era of higher diesel fuel and electricity costs, it is interesting to contemplate whether they could one day foresee operating in an environment more weighted towards renewables than conventional energy.

One With The Roof

Installers working on a tile roof must deal with particularly difficult challenges. Tile roofs are manufactured from many types of materials, including clay, zinc coated aluminum, concrete, wood and fiberglass, all of which come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Installing solar panels on a tile roof takes more time than traditional asphalt shingle roofs and often requires additional framing.

6 Reasons Why Energy Efficiency Programs Fail

Amongst the numerous measures the world has taken to wean itself off the fossil fuels, only a few have been successful in making the businesses, homes and vehicles more energy efficient. Various psychological and financial barriers have kept governments and organizations from realizing the actual potential of energy efficiency programs.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
