Robert Ferris for CNBC: Elon Musk tweeted on Thursday that he hopes to unveil a Tesla/SolarCity solar roof with a new integrated battery pack and Tesla car charger on Oct. 28. Musk first began teasing the next generation Powerwall at an event for Tesla owners in Paris earlier this year, according to Electrek. At the time, he had said the company would roll out the new battery in "July or August." SolarCity's merger with Tesla has aroused skepticism and even ire from some investors and analysts, even after Musk outlined his reasons for combining the two companies in his second installment of his "Master Plan" in late July.

3DIcon Corporation announced that, through Coretec Industries LLC and its silicon materials technologies, it will commence the commercialization of Coretec's proprietary high value liquid silicon precursor, cyclohexasilane (CHS) for use within the growing battery energy storage market.
Jon LeSage for HybridCars: Tesla’s energy storage division just won a very large contract with a major California utility to stabilize power outages. While the acquisition cost hasn’t been announced, Tesla Energy will supply 20 megawatts of energy storage to Southern California Edison – enough to power about 2,500 homes for a full day. It’s part of SCE’s efforts to prevent blackouts by fossil-fuel electricity generation with lithium-ion batteries. Investment in Tesla’s product, called Powerpacks, is thought to be worth tens of millions of dollars, and is expected to be operational by the end of this year. The deal ties into Tesla’s plans to broaden its base beyond manufacturing and selling electric cars, similar to its recent investment in SolarCity. It also signifies advancements being made in energy storage, which is reaching a much faster pace – months instead of years, according to an analyst. Cont'd...
Pacific Power Engineers, Inc. (PPE) was formed by experienced engineers from different branches and offers a range of services e.g. in project management. Together with Lufft USA we provide photovoltaic monitoring solutions.
Following is a statement from Tom Kimbis, interim president of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA):
New solar PV farm projects require the use of meteorological (MET) weather stations to achieve and maintain efficiencies critical to power and revenue generation. Nor-Cal Controls ES, Inc. has meticulously engineered the Tahoe™ MET station to meet and exceed the exacting demands of this new industry using Lufft's weather sensor.
Both multi-crystalline and mono-crystalline module prices extend the slump this week. In multiple exhibitions held in the past two weeks, the solar panels prices in India, Japan and the US have witnessed enlarged drops amid intense competition. The 1st tier Chinese module makers, with increasing production capacities in SEA, leverage strategic pricing most aggressively in the US, offering price quotes of multi-crystalline modules at around $0.40/watt. In addition, top tier Chinese module makers also intend to strengthen its presence in the EU and Japan market by providing more competitive priced modules. In India and the emerging market, 2nd tier Chinese module makers have dominated price turbulence as they can dump excess inventories without punitive tariff enforced. Such fierce price competition indicates that Chinese module makers are still on the way of inventory clearance.

Who wins and who loses as the world goes green New research shows the best solutions for clean energy
In "The Future of Clean Energy: Who Wins and Who Loses as the World Goes Green" author and professor Gary Schwendiman reveals that the solutions are very much within the world's grasp; it's just a matter of overcoming misinformation. Schwendiman's research argues that most popular beliefs about the future of clean energy are simply incorrect, and most governments waste billions of dollars on the wrong green initiatives.
