The Evolution of PV Technology

There have been three key eras of PV technology development: PV1.0, marked by the birth of the silicon PV cell and exploration around the application of clean energy; PV2.0, which brought about the global mass commercialization of solar and more affordable yet lower quality module technologies; and PV3.0, the era we are just now entering.

The North Bay's Largest Recycler of Rubble Materials: A Solar Tracker Case Study

The Soiland Company's solar project exceeded the company's production goals, with 2,096 kWh peak day production to date (offsetting quarry demand as early as 7:00AM). Matching the system's annual production would require a 330kW+ fixed array, or an additional 528 PV panels.

Drones in the Wind Industry

Drone-based inspections provide cost reduction and revenue enhancement opportunities of over $600/turbine when compared to ground-based inspections. The savings value is two folds ($1200/turbine) when compared to corrective/reactionary maintenance.

Case Study: Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS)

AACPS is the fifth largest public school district in Maryland. At any one time, it is educating approximately 82,000 students in its 125 schools, shepherded by its administrative staff spread over nine buildings.

What Does a Dual-Axis Solar System Installation Require?

From roof-mount to ground-mount to trackers, there is an optimal solar solution for every customer and every site. By adding the option of dual-axis trackers to your product offerings, you can provide the full range of solar solutions and meet the needs of more customers without worrying about a complicated installation process.

Hybrid vs Traditional Hydraulic Actuator Systems

With HAS we have combined the controllability of electromechanical actuators with the power density, longer life and resistive force capabilities of traditional hydraulic systems. The resulting hybrid offers robust, long-life tracking solutions for solar power and actuation systems for wind, hydro and other renewable energy systems, as well as fossil fuel applications.

Aging US Wind Energy Fleet Driving Surge in Operating and Maintenance Spending, IHS Markit Says

Industry-wide North American benchmarking study aimed to help operators optimize assets, manage lifecycle costs as equipment ages.

A guide to maximizing production and profit with a DC converter.

The Status of Wind Energy in the USA

Wind energy is now the cheapest form of new generation in many parts of the country making it a good investment for many reasons.

LG Solar releases the NeON R Solar Module at SPI 2017

The higher power density of the NeON R delivers more energy and cost savings in space limited situations. In addition to a higher energy output, the N-type cells use almost no boron, significantly reducing Light Induced Degradation.

Digital Grid and the Environment

The biggest change impacting energy infrastructure around the world is the growth of renewable energy resources, including distributed sources such as solar photovoltaics. At the transmission level, the result of this expansion will mean that electrical grids will take on an increasingly important role in balancing power flows across broader regions, with faster and more dynamic power exchanges taking place during fast solar transition times such as sunrises and sunsets.

C&I Trending Towards Solar Trackers

Corporate brands choose NEXTracker for energy gains and technology benefits.

Energy from Artificial Photosynthesis

Artificial photosynthesis requires only sunlight and simple organic chemicals to generate renewable energy cheaply and cleanly. While some limited progress has been made in this area, until now, no proposed solution has been nearly efficient enough to warrant commercial use.

Here's the truth behind five solar panel myths

If you're considering installing a solar panel system on your home, here are five common myths - and why you shouldn't believe them.

5 Signs that Solar Energy is Changing Society's Consumption Behavior

Despite the resistance of giant fossil fuel enterprises, and despite the misguided efforts of some local, state and federal governments to forestall solar energy (as well as other alternative sources), the march has begun. While the U.S. may be behind Europe right now, the inevitability is a foregone conclusion.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
