Social Marketing and Industry Integration to Drive Mass Adoption of Solar
SolPad, the world's first and only truly integrated solar panel, marks a quantum leap in personal power and aims to gamify sustainable energy use for the masses.
Jon LeSage for HybridCars: Tesla’s energy storage division just won a very large contract with a major California utility to stabilize power outages. While the acquisition cost hasn’t been announced, Tesla Energy will supply 20 megawatts of energy storage to Southern California Edison – enough to power about 2,500 homes for a full day. It’s part of SCE’s efforts to prevent blackouts by fossil-fuel electricity generation with lithium-ion batteries. Investment in Tesla’s product, called Powerpacks, is thought to be worth tens of millions of dollars, and is expected to be operational by the end of this year. The deal ties into Tesla’s plans to broaden its base beyond manufacturing and selling electric cars, similar to its recent investment in SolarCity. It also signifies advancements being made in energy storage, which is reaching a much faster pace – months instead of years, according to an analyst. Cont'd...
Solar Trade Association sets out industry storage priorities
The construction will be carried out between October and December of 2016, and at its completion, the new solar farm will generate enough electricity to provide more than 1,300 homes every year. With this new solar farm, located in the county of North Yorkshire, OPDE is near to meet 100MW of built solar photovoltaic capacity in the United Kingdom.
Grid-scale installation of the Tesla Powerpack in Somerset seen as a major step towards greater efficiency and reliability of power delivery from renewable energy sources.
Katie Fehrenbacher for Fortune: Solar panel maker and farm developer SunPower is embracing the latest in computing technology to help lower the cost of its solar panel farms while minimizing the impact that the farms have on land. The Richmond, Calif.-based company on Tuesday announced an array of new technology that it’s using to design, build, operate, and monitor big solar panel farms that are built to sell energy to utilities and large companies.
