Solar Thermal (Hot Water) - The Other Type Of Solar

Just like PV solar panels, solar thermal systems are tax credit eligible on both state and federal levels. And, just as there are utility rebates for installing a new, more energy efficient water tank, most power companies also have special incentives for installing solar thermal, as high as $450 dollars per solar thermal installation!

Interview - Energy Monitoring with PowerTrack

By monitoring and measuring energy production, consumption and portfolio performance, budget conscious users, installers, developers and financiers are discovering production increases and cost savings that they could never see before.

Utilizing Panel-Level Monitoring to Improve Project ROI

Panel-level monitoring is a new and valuable weapon for array owners and O&M companies to improve financial performance and reduce risk in owning and operating large-scale solar arrays. The accuracy and insight from this new technology, coupled with intelligent Cloud-based analysis and diagnostics, bring many opportunities to improve energy output and improve efficiency in O&M activities.

Alternative Energy in Rhode Island

The Renewable Energy Fund (REF), managed and administered within the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation (RIEDC), has historically been the state's sole, dedicated source for renewable energy funding. The program provides grants, recoverable grants and loans for commercial, municipal and housing projects, as well as feasibility studies.

Energy Storage for the Grid

Currently, the PowerCube™ is configured as a behind the meter resource. In essence this means that Axion acts as a virtual generator by curtailing load. When the PowerCube is commanded to take load from the grid it uses that power to charge its battery. When commanded to discharge, the battery is discharged into the plants load effectively reducing or curtailing its power consumption.

IHS iSuppli Teardown Analysis of Solar Inverter, Identifying the Cost-Reduction Opportunities

In its first-ever dissection of a solar power inverter, IHS has determined the bill of materials (BOM) of a major manufacturer's product, providing a path-setting benchmark for cost reduction in a market expected to undergo rapid price erosion in the coming years.

Building Integrated Photovoltaics Impacts the Glass and Glazing Industry

Selling PV modules in their product package of glass and fenestration products represent a very significant sales potential increase for glass and glazing subcontractors. On a related matter, many PV modules can be glazed directly into the fenestration products without any modification to either product.

MIT Energy Initiative: With changes, U.S. electric grid can hold up to expected challenges

MIT report shows that with new policies, U.S. electric grid could handle expected influx of electric cars and wind and solar generation.

Solar Infrastructure Codes

Unirac is a strong advocate for developing new codes for solar infrastructure, and has been working closely with the International Code Council Evaluation Service to develop new performance standards for racking and mounting systems. Unirac's new SolarMount (E)volution residential roof mount PV racking system, launched at Solar Power International in October, is currently being evaluated by ICC-ES. Unirac is the first company to apply for an ICC ESR under ICC-ES AC428.

Striking Balance - How the Solar Industry Benefits From the U.S. & China

The solar industry is ready for its moment in the sun: Here at home, we hope fairness prevails so that the investigatory process proceeds without acrimony, political overzealousness or protectionism; at stake are U.S. jobs, U.S. exports, and U.S. consumer benefits for a strategically important U.S industry

Solar Technology Comparison Study
Wastewater Engineering Building - LEED Gold Certified

Both thin film and crystalline solar technologies provide reliable and impressive energy production performance. While it is well known that amorphous silicon modules suffer lower performance loss in high temperatures and low light conditions, this study reveals that the differing mounting requirements of each system more than offset this cell-type difference. As a result, with commonly-used commercial mounting solutions, crystalline modules actually outperform thin film modules in energy production per rated watt.

Solar Cogeneration Technology

Solar cogeneration of electricity and hot water maximizes the economic and environmental value of energy derived from the sun. Cogenra's system produces as much electricity as photovoltaic (PV) technology allows, then captures most of the remaining energy as hot water, in total exploiting over 70% of the energy incident from the sun.

India Embraces Solar Power, Says Price Will Equal Thermal Power in Five Years

The program's goals are nothing if not ambitious, as the government had initially hoped to boost the nation's solar capacity by the equivalent of about 18 nuclear power plants by 2022, a date that's now been brought forward by five years.

Trabant partners with Siemens to develop game changing solar tracker

Sade's idea was to eliminate the need for masts or poles to secure a solar array to concrete foundations. Instead, the tracker would use a ballast pan filled with dirt, gravel or sand.

Small Companies Can Make a Big Difference in Tomorrow

During the conversation, I kept coming back to Why? What was driving this desirable business behavior?' Larry summed it up. "At the end of the day - we work to do as much right as we can for all concerns. By being long-term, we can look at the long-term win-wins for both conserving our resources and with a competitive long-term cost benefit as well.

Roof Tech – E Mount AIR

Roof Tech - E Mount AIR

The most compact versatile rail-less PV mounting system under the sun. Instead of placing solar panels on top of long rails, simply attach E Mount AIR to rafters or the roof decking. Once panels are fastened to the roof, the system array is electrically bonded. The result is a visually seamless PV installation that stands the test of time. - Truly "One With The Roof". - PE stamped cert. letters available, UL 2703 Classified, ASTM 2140 fully waterproof. The one and only with integrated flexible flashing certified by the ICC! All the best quality. Only from Roof Tech
