As part of the first steps into the Solar+ Decade, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) released a roadmap that puts solar energy on a path to reaching 20% of U.S. electricity generation by 2030.
Utility solar project announcements surged to 11.2 GW in the first half of 2019, with 6.2 GW contracted in Q2 alone. In addition to the utility solar pipeline growth, residential solar deployment rebounded from the same period last year.
The addition of IronRidge and Quick Mount PV to current Esdec company, EcoFasten, creates the largest solar mounting systems group in the U.S., representing more than 60% share of the residential market.
The American Solar Energy Society and Solar United Neighbors team up to launch the nation's largest tour of solar homes
Comparing the first half year supply and demand of Guarantees of Origin for 2019 with comparable figures in 2018, shows supply is growing by 14 TWh while demand grew significantly faster, with 60 TWh.
The newly formed Strategic Solar Sourcing will provide enterprise-quality, supply chain services and products for residential and C&I solar installers, developers, EPCs, and other solar professionals with direct-to-manufacturer pricing without the need for large purchases.
The neutrinovoltaic technology developed by the Neutrino Energy Group derives electrical energy from neutrinos, which are invisible particles that bombard the Earth in roughly equal numbers every moment of every day.
During Wind Week, the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) and supporters of wind energy highlight the many ways that wind powers opportunity at dozens of events across the country and online with #AmericanWindWeek.
This year's report contains data from both on-site and off-site installations, tracking more than 7,000 MW of installed solar capacity across 35,000 projects, up from 2,500 MW and 7,000 projects in the 2017 report.
The projects selected today are expected to begin offshore construction in late 2022 and be completed by 2024.
An innovative thermal battery being developed by Curtin University researchers will be key to a solar power system capable of producing electricity overnight.
In China, the policy unveiled in late April offered insights into its goal to achieve grid parity. To ensure solar can remain profitable without subsidies, the market has turned to high efficiency modules with low price.
Among those who support a nationwide solar mandate, 32% said they strongly support it and 38% said they somewhat support it, while approximately 16% said they somewhat oppose it and 14% said they strongly oppose it.
New Report Surveys 6.5M modules, 355 Installations and 1.8GW of Total Power and Finds Total Module Defects up 34 percent Year over Year.
Crossing the 2 million solar installations threshold was just one of many highlights on the quarter

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
