Electric Utilities Prepare for a Grid Dominated by Renewable Energy

Julia Pyper for GTM:  A growing number of electric industry leaders agree that it’s only a matter of time before renewable energy resources dominate their grid systems.

In California, it’s already a reality, said Steve Berberich, president and CEO of California Independent System Operator Corporation. On a typical day, CAISO will pull about 30,000 megawatts of energy production, with around 6,500 megawatts from solar, 5,000 megawatts from wind and another 5,000 from geothermal and other services on the system. In addition, California’s grid system has roughly 4,000 megawatts of behind-the-meter solar, which is growing at a rate of about 70 megawatts per month.

In any given day, California gets more than 30 percent its electricity from renewable energy. On many days that amount climbs to 40 percent, and on some days renewables reach 50 percent, said Berberich.

“Now we have to think about the system as a renewable energy-based system complemented by other things,” he said, speaking at the Edison Electric Institute’s annual convention this week in Chicago.  Cont'd...

PVinsights: Price deterioration of solar components spilling over the supply chain

Polysilicon price extend the drop this week as the wait-and-see attitude of buyers and the dollar strengthen. As Chinese polysilicon suppliers have lowered price quote noticeably last week and the downstream demand remain sluggish, polysilicon buyers become more cautious in polysilicon procurements. As buyers sentiment weakens, the inventory level have witnessed noticeable rise, with some accumulating 2-3 weeks extra inventories, according to our supply chain check. Moreover, as the greenback strengthens recently, polysilicon price in China is further deteriorated in USD term. On the other hand, polysilicon prices outside of China are also being pressured as constrained by the price decline in Chinese market. Moreover, as the leading wafer manufacturer turns more bearish regarding the outlook of the demand, the weakening wafer prices also cause the polysilicon to perform poorly as well.

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
