Along with the warranty, youll need to consider the companys ability to honor its warranty. Is the company (either the installer or the panel maker) an established player in the industry? If not, its hard to know how reliable and stable the brand will be
Integrating the module and the inverter is a natural evolution. In the PC industry, silicon semiconductor components have been continuously integrated to reduce manufacturing cost, reduce complexity, and simplify the customer experience.
When looking at potential solutions to becoming more self reliant/sustainable with energy, the conversation needs to begin with taking a hard look on how energy is being used today. There are several outside the box solutions that naturally lend themselves to sustainability
Akshat Rathi for Quartz: Renewable electricity is already competitive with fossil-fuel power. Better still, the report makes the extraordinary prediction: By 2020, all forms of renewable electricity will be consistently cheaper than power produced by burning fossil fuels.
World clean energy investment totalled $333.5 billion last year, up 3% from 2016 and the second highest annual figure ever, taking cumulative investment since 2010 to $2.5 trillion
The diesel generators can be switched off completely during the day. This is unnoticed by electricity consumers but has huge benefits for the electric utility company and the region - and a pioneer for more diesel-free zones worldwide.
Specialized PVD coatings and nitriding significantly increase the durability and lifespan of wind turbine components like roller bearings and planetary gears under metal-on-metal, high load conditions
There is no doubting the magnitude of opportunity facing the global solar industry now and in the coming years. However, the industry must reflect on past failures and put in place processes which ensure they are not repeated.
Peter Levring for Bloomberg Technology: Denmark obtained 43.4 percent of its electricity from wind last year, beating its own record. The governments goal is to derive 50 percent of the countrys entire energy consumption from renewables by 2030.
Chelsea Gohd for Futurism: Solar-powered cars have been thought of by many as an impossible pipedream. But the innovators behind Lightyear One, a fully solar-powered vehicle to be released in 2019, just won an award for their design.
Clean Energy Collective (CEC), the nations leading community solar developer and solutions provider, forecast what is on the horizon for community solar. CECs experts offer the following 10 predictions for 2018.
Lorraine Chow for EcoWatch: The vision is so massive that the developers will have to construct a 2.3-square-mile artificial island in the North Sea to support the 10,000-turbine complex.
With ever-increasing panel efficiency, gross installation costs at under $4 a watt, and available tax credits to help defray the cost, there's never been a better time to consider this technology.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: SmartWire is part of an industry wide remaking of 'busbars. In order to squeeze greater efficiency from the same limited rooftop space, an evolution on the front side of the solar panel has been sped up.
David Grossman for Popular Mechanics: To build a photovoltaic highway, Chinese engineers are using three layers. The uppermost of these is transparent concrete with a feel similar to asphalt. Then come the solar panels, absorbing the sun's rays while protected from nature.
