Sustainability is key for the almond industry. Minturn Huller Co-Op, an almond hulling and shelling facility in Merced County, California, decided solar was the way to go to reduce energy costs while protecting the environment.
Investing in smart devices for your home can save you quite a bit on your home energy costs, and that is worth every penny that you put into automating your home.
Beyond providing power to farm structures, solar energy can power agricultural operations such as crop irrigation, rangeland livestock watering, security systems, and is contributing to solar innovations in equipment.
According to BEIS figures published in March 2017, it looks like the UK is progressing nicely and it on its way to meeting this target, with carbon emissions having dropped overall by 42 per cent since 1990.
Plan supports SCE's clean energy vision of 7 million electric cars on state highways by 2030. In the second phase, SCE wants to make a more concerted effort to increase the number of chargers available in apartment and condominium complexes.
New industry report examines energy-efficiency investments by builders. California currently represents one-half of all net zero energy homes built in the U.S. The state has bold goals for all residential new construction to achieve ZNE by 2020
Our half-cut module production technique cuts a standard cell in half to reduce the cell's operating currents, resistance losses and stress on areas that cause hot spots. Half-cut technology increases module reliability and offers a higher solar yield, boosting power output
Currently, China boasts the highest number of installed solar power panels with 112GW in the summer of 2017. The country has managed to achieve the target it had set for 2020 three years ahead of schedule
What makes this battery "smart" is the adaptability of the battery to cater to the needs of the individual homeowner, the complexities of the grid, and the unpredictably of energy access.
The dual-axis tracker keeps the PV module optimized regardless of the time of day, time of year, or latitude, assuring optimum energy capture.
The new panel breaks fresh ground for REC and the industry: this is the first solar panel to combine n-type mono half-cut cells with a twin-panel design, and promises excellent power output of up to 330 watt peak allied to lasting performance.
The owner noted a 60% electricity bill reduction in March, and savings reaching 80% during the summer which is the peak refrigeration season. Equally important, a recent spring outage due to a grid malfunction that resulted in no electrical power for an entire day did not af
Accelerated demand across the world will still only partially compensate for the reduced outlook in China. As a result, the IHS Markit outlook for global PV installations in 2018 has fallen from 113 gigawatts to 105 gigawatts, which is still 11 percent higher than in 2017.
Time to start processing your PPAs again. It is an inevitable part of renewable energy management. Although a simple and routine task, someone must do it. This process takes too much time and is susceptible to error.
It is clear that solar power is a real contender for a reliable and affordable energy source if the issue of storage is overcome. Some of these solutions go a long way to showing that smart houses and bio-powered vehicles running on solar energy may become a reality.

The IMO FireRaptor provides three forms of Solar Panel Rapid Shutdown to ZERO VOLTS in case of fire or other emergency: Manual Panel Shutdown to 0V Operated from Ground Level, Automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V at >85°C (185°F) Temperature, and an automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V on External Power Loss. The FireRaptor can be installed without any set-up and with any string inverter as its functionality is completely independent. "Plug & Play" style installation using industry standard connectors is easy, whether fitted to new installs or retrofitted to existing projects to upgrade fire safety functionality. Meeting NEC2017's regulation to switch DC current at the PV panel in under 30 seconds, FireRaptor is remains one of the safest and most effective means of isolating DC current at the source, and the only rapid shutdown with a 20 year warranty.
