Discounted Solar Power Equipment in Hurricane-Affected Areas
altE is also providing discounted solar power equipment to residents in great need in hurricane torn areas of Puerto Rico, Florida, Texas and the Caribbean Islands throughout October. altE offers a 15 percent discount to anyone has been affected by the storms.

"Solar and alternative energy allows people to become quickly self-sufficient with a robust power source," said Sascha Deri, CEO of altE. "We are providing solar power equipment at close to cost to help people immediately in areas devastated by the hurricanes. Folks can install the systems to get back up and running off grid, independently and self-contained. It also empowers communities with the opportunity to create small, more resilient micro-grids in the future that won't have the same vulnerabilities as traditional, large, centralized utility grids."

altE has also been working with other organizations, offering free design and expertise with heavily discounted equipment. altE has contacted many of the major solar equipment manufacturers and is currently working on obtaining discounted equipment from them to help with relief efforts.

These storms aren't the first time that altE has stepped in to offer assistance with off grid alternative energy. Last year, altE assisted International Rescue Group as they were delivering emergency supplies to Haiti after Hurricane Matthew by building portable solar generators, which were delivered to the local mayor's office to improve their communication.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
