Lake Country Wind Energy announces that it has secured nearly 25,000 acres for the development of its 340 megawatt community owned project in Meeker and Kandiyohi Counties, Minnesota. This is over three fourths of the acres needed to complete the project's site control effort.
Figures from 13 years of solar technology testing - including the top three quality failures and strongest influences of new manufacturers on module design - show some photovoltaic (PV) modules required a tune-up to pass international qualification standards.

Construction has begun off Oregon's coast on the first commercial U.S. wave-energy farm, planned to supply power to about 400 homes, according to a USA TODAY report. Wave power draws from the energy of ocean surface waves. A float on a buoy rises and falls with the waves, driving a plunger connected to a hydraulic pump that converts the vertical movement into electricity. The first buoy will measure 150 feet tall by 40 feet wide, weigh 200 tons and cost $4 million, according to Phil Pellegrino, spokesman for New Jersey-based developer Ocean Power Technologies, which is developing the project.
Significant issues for the operator may include the operator's right to enter onto the land and monitor the land for wind potential before an agreement is executed with the landowner. This right is typically set forth in an option granted to the operator for a period lasting anywhere from two to ten years, in exchange for a fee paid to the landowner, allowing the operator adequate time to carry out a wind study to ascertain whether the land is a good candidate for a wind project.

DEK Solar is reflecting on an extremely positive Q4, having sold a record number of photovoltaic metallization lines in China. Most recently, the solar screen printing specialist completed a contract to supply a high-profile turnkey provider in the region with a large number of new metallization lines.
Carmanah Technologies Corporation has received an order valued in excess of $275,000 USD through its authorized South African distributor, Sun Solutions, to supply solar powered LED airfield lights to Waterkloof Air Force Base in South Africa.

Group OPDE signs agreement with the Government of Durango for the construction of solar photovoltaic
The first -1 MW power- solar power plant will be built at the Logistics and Industrial Park in Durango (CLIP) and will be fully operational in 2010.
The innovative hybrid technology featured in the car has been developed especially for racing, standing out significantly in its configuration and components from conventional hybrid systems. In this case, electrical front axle drive with two electric motors developing 60 kW each supplements the 480-bhp four-litre flat-six at the rear of the 911 GT3 R Hybrid. A further significant point is that instead of the usual batteries in a hybrid road car, an electrical flywheel power generator fitted in the interior next to the driver delivers energy to the electric motors. The flywheel generator itself is an electric motor with its rotor spinning at speeds of up to 40,000 rpm, storing energy mechanically as rotation energy.
Poor-quality solar energy equipment could flood the U.S. market without the safeguard of third-party testing and certification. Newly announced testing and certification recommendations by Solar America Board for Codes and Standards (Solar ABCs) aim to protect consumers and businesses alike.
