Don't want a solar panel on your roof…how about one floating on the lake behind your home?

A Los Angeles city councilman is floating - literally - a proposal for the city to build a unique solar energy production site. He wants the city to float solar panels on Los Angeles reservoirs.

Accelerating Solar Sales with Utility Bill Data

From identifying more accurate qualifications and better targets to enhancing assessments and ROI calculations, solar providers stand to gain a tremendous competitive advantage with the help of cost and consumption data from utility bills.

Solar CEO Tackles 10 Tough Objections to Renewable Energy

Here are some effective ways to convince the powers that are, well, in power but not necessarily in the know when it comes to power, about the value solar power has.

Solar Aesthetics

A lot of home owners and business owners want to go solar but do not like the look of commodity modules on the roof or simply don't have great solar access on their roof.

50 Resources for Solar Energy Professionals

With so many competing interests and limited time, fulfilling the responsibilities of a solar energy professional is becoming more challenging. We compiled this list and want to share these resources with you.

New Control Strategy Helps Reap Maximum Power from Wind Farms

UT Dallas researchers use supercomputers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center to develop methods that can improve wind energy production.

Improving Energy Production by 10% with Tigo's Selective Deployment

A single shaded panel impacts overall string production if not optimized, but optimizing every panel in the string drives up cost. Tigo Flex MLPE TS4 solution allows for selective optimization of the single shaded panel to recover lost energy and save on cost.

Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs)

While SRECs can represent a valuable financing option for your solar installation, it would behoove you to do your homework to figure out what your state's SREC market looks like currently, as well as what it looked like in the past.

The Challenges of Maintaining the Leading Edge

A variety of studies have investigated the costs and strategies of O&M for Wind Power, some have found that these O&M ventures can account for as much as 30% of the overall per-MWh-cost for wind turbines.

Case Study: S-5! in Mkweni, South Africa

Mkweni, a farm located well off the electrical grid on the remote Wild Coast region of South Africa, determined a roof-mounted solar array was the best solution for their needs.

sonnen Microgrid Brings Power, Shelter and Relief to a Farming Community in Puerto Rico

The eleventh humanitarian microgrid installed by sonnen provides immediate relief to Lares residents and creates a foundation for long-term revitalization in the wake of devastation by Hurricane Maria

Clean Energy from High Above

The new system including 100 kW generator is mobile and needs less construction material than wind turbines. Additionally the Kitepower system can flexibly use winds up to an altitude of 500 m.

Maximize Production and Revenues of Utility-Scale Solar with DC-Coupled Energy Storage

DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage.

The Future of Organic Photovoltaics

At this time, OPVs are applicable only in limited markets that require lightweight, flexibility, and variable angle performance.

Best Practices: Installing PV on Tile Roof

The use of either hanger bolt assemblies or standoffs mean that you'll need to drill, grind or cut the tile when installing, which is not an ideal solution, and will make the time you spend on the roof more time consuming as well as more frustrating.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
