Solar Training Courses for 2022

SEI is scaling the organization on several fronts to give people more access to hands on, more classes online, and more services for employers to help bridge the gap between training and employment.

New Legislation on PFAS May Affect Your Fire Suppression System

One of the primary problems with PFAS is their "persistence." Persistence means they can persist in soil, water, and in the human body … for years. Exposure to water, air, and sunlight does little to degrade them, thus they are known as "forever" chemicals.

Case Study - Outfitting an Off-Grid Canvas Geodesic Dome - Part 1

The setup would consist of a 24ft canvas geodesic dome, an outdoor kitchen, a separate enclosed bathroom, and a utility trailer with solar panels mounted on the roof and all the required electrical inside.

Latest Advancements in Solar Technology for Residential Applications

Due to the vast applications for solar technology in modern day residences, certain advancements in solar energy systems have different benefits as households vary.

Capitalizing on the Growth of Small to Medium Commercial Rooftops (50-500kW)

There are a lot of new tools that exist in the C&I space that haven't existed in the past. As the price of electricity increases, more C&I businesses owners are looking for ways to to generate electricity.

Optimizing LCOE in Utility-scale Solar Installations

LCOE is the metric used by the energy industry to determine how long it will take to pay back the system design and installation and begin turning a profit, similar to the concept of payback in residential and commercial energy systems.

Generating Recurring Revenue with Active Monitoring of Solar Systems

If the installer offers the first year of monitoring for free to every customer, we have found that around 90% of people renew the next year, establishing an ongoing annual relationship that didn't exist before.

Solar Panel Cleaning and the Importance of Preventative Maintenance

There are several challenges, mainly due to the area where the cleaning is needed. For example, in Saudi Arabia, there are a lot of sandstorms. Therefore, the panels need to be dry cleaned almost every day.

Solar PV and Thermal Energy Storage

Energy storage is a fundamental requirement as we transition to renewable energy sources. Thermal energy storage is very effective, has high energy density and very low cost.

All-in-One Energy Storage System

When solar or shore power is available, the solar inverter charger can use the solar or shore power to charge the lithium iron phosphate batteries and keep the batteries topped off.

Understanding the Chemistries of Deep-Cycle Batteries

Advancements in battery chemistry and design have allowed deep-cycle batteries to deliver longer cycle life and higher capacity and cycle-up to full rated capacity faster than previous designs.

Recent Unique Advances in the Applications of Solar Energy to Benefit Us on a Day to Day Basis

As civilization grows the energy needed to support our lifestyles increases daily, requiring us to find new innovative ways to use our renewable resources such as the sunlight to create more energy for our society to continue making progress.

Recent Advancements in Nuclear Technology : an Overview

Many researchers claimed that smaller modular reactors (SMRs) are the way to address the existing issue with reactor designs. SMRs are designed to generate up to 300 MW of electric power, and the parts of the reactors can be easily broken down and transported to plants.

Advances in the Conversion of Ocean/MSW Waste Plastic to Fuels

The conversion of plastic waste into fuel is beneficial for the global economy and environment. Plastic conversion to fuel has the potential to create almost 40,000 jobs.

2021 Top Article - 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.
