Louis Sahagun for The LA Times: The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors has rejected a controversial solar plant proposed for the Mojave Desert’s Soda Mountains, citing concerns that the project would destroy habitat and block ancient trails used by bighorn sheep for thousands of years. In a 3-2 vote, the board on Tuesday declined to certify documents required under state law in order to issue county permits for the project on public land along Interstate 15 near the entrances to Joshua Tree National Park and Death Valley National Park, and less than a mile from the Mojave National Preserve. “We endorse renewable energy, but this was the wrong project in the wrong location,” said Supervisor Robert A.

Polysilicon prices falter this week as wafer makers could not bear with such high priced polysilicon amid the slumping downstream prices and demand. Chinese polysilicon suppliers have lowered the price quotes obviously this week, due to the tremendous pressure. As the demand and prices of wafer remain subdued, many wafer makers have threaten to curtail production rates that forces polysilicon suppliers in China accommodate with the price reductions. Moreover, such price correction is partially attributed to the low polysilicon prices offered by some European suppliers and the looming pressures of the closure of the accounting process of financial quarter 3Q16. Meanwhile, the scopes of the price change in overseas market are less than in China. As the result, overall polysilicon prices are mainly dragged down by the noticeable polysilicon price correction in China.

PowerGrip Plus Roof Mount System, a watertight structural attachment system used to secure ballasted solar racks and other equipment to roofs covered with thermoplastic (TPO and PVC) membranes. PowerGrip Plus is designed with wind performance in mind and offers ultimate tensile strength of 2,000 lbf. and ultimate shear strength of 1,075 lbf. Properly installed PowerGrip Plus units reduce rack movement and remaining watertight. PowerGrip Plus units are easy to install, saving both time and labor when compared to alternative options. A wide membrane skirt promotes easy welding in place, and the 15/8 diameter and 1/2 inch tall mount provides an optimal perch for securing brackets or struts. The exposed 1 inch tall and 3/8 inch diameter bolt and mounting stand are made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel and aluminum alloy for superior long-term performance.
