Opportunities for solar installers to offer storage as an integral part of their solutions are opening up everywhere, from mitigating the impact of power outages, the increase in distributed renewable generation at times of low use, the rising costs of base and peak power and the trend of some states to reduce or eliminate net metering programs.
The renewable and energy efficiency industries have created over 2.5 million jobs in the United States. Solar now employs more Americans than than oil, natural gas and coal combined. The nation's fastest growing occupation is, believe it or not, the wind turbine technician; which is still projected to grow 108% in the next 7 years.
Renewables have now reached such a critical mass, utilities can no longer ignore them as a way to augment their capabilities in producing power cheaper, smarter, better. At this point, the tide has turned for utilities and there is no going back.
Nanostructure-based coating technology provides increased energy efficiency while minimizing costs.
The number of metrics measured by the Lufft's weather stations in combination with the high accuracy of the sensors gives our customers the ability to forecast short-term and long-term generation capabilities of their site with a high degree of confidence.
New England has been one of the most receptive regions in the US to renewable energy, and continues to adopt a number of different alternative energy sources.
The technology we are developing, called zeroXess, will provide electricity, lighting and Internet connectivity to rural, off-grid, underdeveloped areas throughout the world.
This paper will identify and explain the environmental concerns and siting requirements for small ground mount solar PV projects within the FIT 3 and EASR frameworks, discuss the discrepancies, interpretations, and provide a path forward towards successful project execution.
When new mandatory regulations for photovoltaic products go into effect, manufacturers will have to fast-track compliance.
The client indicated a large number of high quality; 2 axis solar arrays built on rural and farm properties that were starting to fail.
This system is working good in a 4000 sq ft shop & house combo, but could use more storage for peace of mind & will likely upgrade next year.
I would recommend this living situation to anyone! I feel that this isn't just a temporary fad but a trend that will continue especially for Millennials that are buried in debt, specifically student loans.
Berkeley Lab study shows greater potential than many other recent assessments.
As this result shows that the combination of two PV technologies can outperform the power generation of single junctions the significance of this result shouldn't be underestimated as it breaks the current limitations of solar technology and shows that higher performing modules can be expected to become part of the energy system ...

The need for good data is foremost. A swing of just a half percentage point in the actual output of solar energy plants-compared to projected outputs-would represent about $165 million annually.

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
