Because the face of solar panels are fabricated from glass, there's no surface area/friction for snow to grip onto, and nothing to stop it from building up, eventually releasing in an avalanche manner, in the form of what we Alpine-ites like to refer to as a solavalanche.
Benjamin Storrow for Scientific American: Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Maryland are all eyeing up manufacturing and maintenance businesses that would support wind energy
Bobby Magill for Scientific American: 10 percent of electricity generated in the country in March came from these renewables
Conor Ryan for Energy Storage News: A first prototype of the storage system is expected to be developed later in 2017, with both companies planning to secure a commercial pilot plant during 2018.
Darfon will be introducing 5 new products this year: H5000, H100, H200, G640 and ComBox. The H5000, our latest hybrid inverter, converts DC power from the PV modules or batteries into AC. Based upon programmed priorities easily set up by the installer, batteries are charged from either the PV array or grid.
Leanna Garfield for Business Insider: Not considering the multi-billion-dollar construction cost of the wall itself, the solar array installation could cost between $1.4 billion and $4.2 billion
Utility-scale solar prices fall below $1/watt for first time; capacity expected to triple over next five years.
The Renewable Energy Engineering Program began in 2015 due to the potential demand that is expected for these types of professionals and the opportunity for development (a growing trend) provided by Baja California, the California region in general (USA) and Baja California Sur (Mexico).
Utility-scale solar prices fall below $1/watt for first time; capacity expected to triple over next five years
Greg Alvarez for Into the Wind the AWEA blog: The U.S. Army has purchased output from both a solar and wind plant in Texas to power about 50 percent of the operations at Fort Hood.
In states like California and Massachusetts at least half of all Target stores there will have solar panels by the end of 2017. In California, 150 of our 287 stores will have solar installations by the end of the year.
For the first time at Intersolar Europe, Array Technologies' booth will feature our latest DuraTrack HZ v3, which is a 2017 Intersolar AWARD Technology finalist. Visitors can see a full-scale demonstration that will be actively tracking throughout the show.
We are introducing a few new products this year. For Asphalt Shingle Roofs, we have a new Low Profile QuickBOLT that simplifies the installation process by removing the height adjustable nature of the original QuickBOLT. We have a new hook for Stone Coated Steel Roofs, as more installers have found customer opportunities with this type of roof. Visit us at Intersolar Booth #9645
What we are seeing is that the Mexican government and its regulatory and policymaking bodies are listening to the stakeholders in Mexico's renewable energy space and they have been tweaking and updating the reforms accordingly.
Johnny Lieu for Mashable: Researchers at the University of Newcastle in Australia are testing solar cells that use electronic inks printed on plastic film to conduct electricity.

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.
