Douglas Caldwell's AC micro grid for his home, is a sleek combination of Sanyo HIT solar panels, Enphase micro-inverters and a Schneider Electric Xantrex XW Series battery backup system, which provides uninterrupted power for occasions when the grid is down.
Here are a examples of Wind installations around the world. With an operational fleet spanning 60 countries and every continent Proven Energy's high performance wind turbines accrue over 30 million run hours annually.
Here are two case studies about SolarWall. NREL - Research Support Facility is pictured below and Northern Arizona University - Distance Learning Center
The Minneapolis Convention Center Solar Project was a collaborative effort between the City of Minneapolis, Xcel Energy, and Best Power Int'l, LLC.
The pressroom is a concrete building built in the late 1970's. The roof was old and flat. A traditional ballasted mounting system, with its added weight, wasn't an option-- the old roof would have collapsed. Mark Stahl the operations manager of Astralux Power needed a different kind of a solution.
Alice Springs, Australia, with around 300 days of sunshine every year, is an ideal test location for solar power installations. The Desert Knowledge Australia (DKA) Solar Centre is a government-funded public showcase of solar installations, demonstrating a range of solar power technologies from many of the world's leading manufacturers.
Mr. Deep Chakraborty currently CEO of Centrosolar America, Inc. since January 2010, was until recently Vice President of the parent Group in Munich, Germany. At Centrosolar, Deep has focused on a fast ramp-up of the US business: launching Centrosolar-branded products, growing the sales and engineering organization and launching a systems-based approach to Centrosolar's product offering in the North American market.
Using natural gas to produce oil from tar sands is akin to turning gold into lead.
DTE Energy have held Alt energy conferences for some 16 years now and 6 years ago teamed up with the Engineering Society of Detroit to produce the Alternative energy conference for the State. They are currently involved in some large installations of solar powered arrays for factories at the moment.
Editorial Comments for the December eMagazine issue
I started my sustainability project with a theme, "Grow What You Can Eat." It was my hope to use natural free resources water and solar energy to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Though the progress may be slow, I am proud to see the changes that my neighbors and other communities have made in realizing the value of this global issue to be solved by each one of us. As a specialist in the education and implementation of water conservation and rain water harvesting, we all should take small steps with end goal of someday achieving total sustainability.
On May 4th, the 115 year old Engineering Society of Detroit held its 18th Annual Michigan Energy Conference and Exhibition subtitled "Save Money Now: Strategies for Energy Efficiency."
The pace of the European solar photovoltaic (PV) market in the first half of 2010 was dominated by the impending mid-year incentive tariff reductions in Germany and conditioned by the lower module pricing that emerged through 2009, according to the latest from Solarbuzz® in Europe PV Markets 2010.
Developing economic well-being and preserving a healthy environment are not opposed forces but do, on the contrary, have a primary relationship and require a similar way of thinking: maximizing the efficiency of a product over its life cycle will minimize its total financial cost as well as the total environmental impact over its life cycle.

The IMO FireRaptor provides three forms of Solar Panel Rapid Shutdown to ZERO VOLTS in case of fire or other emergency: Manual Panel Shutdown to 0V Operated from Ground Level, Automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V at >85°C (185°F) Temperature, and an automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V on External Power Loss. The FireRaptor can be installed without any set-up and with any string inverter as its functionality is completely independent. "Plug & Play" style installation using industry standard connectors is easy, whether fitted to new installs or retrofitted to existing projects to upgrade fire safety functionality. Meeting NEC2017's regulation to switch DC current at the PV panel in under 30 seconds, FireRaptor is remains one of the safest and most effective means of isolating DC current at the source, and the only rapid shutdown with a 20 year warranty.
