NEC 2023 Changes to Sections 690, 691, 692, 694, 705, 710 and 790

This article summarizes some of the current and new requirements regarding proper labeling for standard solar and wind installations.

Solar Plant Production Verification and Error Detection

Using Solar-Log® monitoring, the SunPeak Operations & Maintenance team can track solar plant energy production metrics as well as data from the installed Lufft pyranometer to ensure that the system is running free and clear of errors.

What to Know About Fire Safety for Renewable Energy

Whether it's a set of wind turbines or residential solar panels, identifying the risks associated with installation and general operation is crucial for technicians and the companies they work for.

Alternate Energy Aficionados Dream Come True : Solar Cars: Is It Really a Possibility?

After vigorous calculations, researchers have concluded that to drive 50 miles per day, a car needs 3.44 kW, and most of the current solar panels can produce 345 W/ft² under full sun, and that will need approximately 250 ft² of solar panels in a car.

NRL PRAM Mission: One Year and Still Going

PRAM is testing functional components of what would be part of a power satellite network that could transmit energy from space to anywhere on Earth. Since the launch, the team has been receiving data regularly.

First Batch of World's Largest Tidal-Flat 300MW Utility Scale Solar PV Plant Successfully Connected to the Grid

The first batch of units of world's largest tidal-flat utility PV plant (300 MW) have been successfully connected to the grid for power generation. This completed the annual grid connection goal safely, efficiently and satisfactorily.

Clean Energy Boom to Create Quality American Jobs

New U.S. jobs report shows America's clean energy transition will drive massive expansion of good-paying jobs in wind, solar, and energy storage

Solar Energy Production Shines Brighter With Data Analysis Tools

Many people understandably want clear ideas of the expected results before and after installation. Data analysis tools can provide that, removing much of the uncertainty that may cause customers to delay their solar energy investments.

How Farmers Harvest Their Own Power with Solar Energy

If you think about it, an industry that is wholly dependent on nature and the environment should look to the sun for free power.

2021 PV Module Reliability Scorecard Ranks Top Solar Products from 26 Manufacturers

The annual report by PV Evolution Labs notes performance gains while highlighting a persistent trend in preventable safety failures that first emerged in 2018.

Solar Spotlight: Ageto Energy Powering Community Projects

Of the many suppliers and customers SMA works with, one outstanding partner is Ageto Energy of Fort Collins, Colorado. Ageto produces microgrid control systems, and has selected SMA's CORE1 Inverter in their projects around the world since 2017.

Advances in Solar Panel Technology in Recent Years and Its Use in Solar Car Development

Currently, a high-efficiency car company, Aperta Motors, is conducting test drives and safety tests on a new design of cars. These Aperta are three-wheelers, covered by 34 square feet of solar panels, which provide enough energy to drive up to 40 miles on a sunny day.

Best Practices for Installing a Solar-Ready Low Slope Roof

When installing a solar array, having a coverboard as part of the roofing assembly is a best practice. As such, most manufacturers of solar mounts test and evaluate their mechanical attachment products with a coverboard over polyisocyanurate (polyiso) insulation.

VINEYARD WIND RECEIVES RECORD OF DECISION FOR FIRST IN THE NATION COMMERCIAL SCALE OFFSHORE WIND PROJECT

Federal Milestone will Launch Offshore Wind Industry and Bring Thousands of Jobs, Reduce Carbon Pollution and Lower Costs for Ratepayers

Automating Renewable Energy Maintenance

Companies can prevent issues by performing routine maintenance. These actions extend a renewable energy device's life and prevent its components from experiencing additional stress. Well-kept machinery can operate more efficiently than neglected solar or wind technology.
