The Commercial and Industrial (C&I) sector represents an extraordinary opportunity to deploy solar energy, but has experienced relatively slow growth due to a wide range of complexities in ownership structure, creditworthiness of the end-consumer, and other issues. The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and an array of industry experts - convened as the SEIA Finance Initiative and its Commercial Real Estate working group - investigated the opportunity, associated barriers, and potential solutions of this underserved market.
After the formal adoption of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) manual, Distributed Energy Resources Rate Design and Compensation, the solar industry and advocates released the following responses:

Country's booming solar-plus-storage market grows without federal incentives
"Unfortunately, based on our preliminary review, for this Administration and the majority of Americans who support expanding wind energy in the U.S., this final rule makes federal lands even less attractive to wind energy developers. This will add time, uncertainty, complexity, and expense to a process that was already more difficult than developing on private lands."
Complete with recruitment best practices, leadership tips and retention advice, SEIA's Community Engagement Committee designed this guide to assist solar companies with the practical application and implementation of diversity initiatives.
Solar panel prices increase slightly with the partial increasing prices in lower-priced regions but the decreasing in the US. Upstream solar cells have surged more than 20% since October, but such increase in material costs did not reflect on the prices of solar panel that continue to squeeze the margins out of the makers. However, with the erosion of margins, solar panel suppliers in the lower-priced regions, such as China and India, eventually increase the prices successfully recently, but the increasing is still limited because the demand is not strong enough. Meanwhile, in the US, where solar panels are priced relatively higher, are being pressured, following the rising speculation of stagnate US demand and the uncertain atmosphere around the Presidential Election.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
