Why flying a kite could be the future of clean energy

Antony Michels for Yahoo Finance:  David Schaefer wants to sell $50,000 kites to farmers to help them generate electricity by harnessing the power of the wind. Schaefer, 54, is the CEO of eWind Solutions, a Beaverton, Oregon, company he founded in 2013 after quitting his job as director of mechanical engineering at Xerox. “Imagine when you were a kid in a field flying the kite,” Schaefer says. “When the wind picks up you remember feeling that pull on the string. Well that pull is really energy. That’s what we’re doing. We’re harnessing that energy.”   Cont'd...

PVinsights: Solar prices extend longest losing streak since 2016

The prices of both multi-crystalline and mono-crystalline modules continue to tumble this week. The slower demand in China has triggered fears over solar market turbulence, not just in China but across the Asia, with contagious spillovers to the global markets. The solar panel prices in China have experienced a great pressure as the competition among the suppliers become extremely intense in order to compete for limited solar projects especially after more domestic production capacities ramped up by Chinese 2nd tier suppliers. Meanwhile, in order to digest the excess stockpiles that left from slow China demand, the 2nd tier Chinese module suppliers also intend to strengthen its presences in the key solar markets, India and SEA where no punitive tariff are enforced. Hence, solar panel prices in these regions have seen fierce price competition with price quotes around $0.40/watt.

Obama makes new push on solar power

Timothy Cama for The Hill:  The Obama administration is making a new large-scale effort to encourage deployment and use of rooftop solar power on homes. Numerous agencies announced new or strengthened coordinated efforts Tuesday aimed at increasing solar installations in houses owned by low- and moderate-income Americans, including a new goal for solar installations and a policy change to increase access to a key financing mechanism for solar power and energy efficiency. “This is an approach that cuts across the government to try to take advantage of the fact that the cost of renewable technologies has come down dramatically during President Obama’s tenure, and we want to advantage of that a try to encourage more homeowners to actually benefit directly from that dynamic,” Brian Deese, a top adviser to Obama, told reporters. The administration is dubbing the effort the “Clean Energy for All Americans Initiative.”   Cont'd...

Future ready: the road to renewable power quality

In a perfect world, all industries and applications would be fuelled by renewable energy and provide us with sustainable power. Unfortunately, there are many problems to resolve before industries can fully rely on a consistently sustainable source of power.

Screen cleaning powder can help maximise solar panel efficiency

An increased push from the United Nations (UN) to combat climate change will lead to a wider adoption of energy from renewable sources, including solar power, over the coming years. As a result, global water, energy and maintenance solutions provider NCH Europe is urging solar energy providers to consider the cleanliness of their solar panels to increase efficiency and reliability.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
