Brett Belan, Apparent Energy for MotherEarth News: The time is here for solar power to make its way to our vehicles. The state-of-the-art panels pose no weight limitation. At 6 pounds per 150 watts, thin flexible solar panels will weigh 600 pounds but give you 15 kilowatts! This is enough to directly drive from the sun. However, the surface area is a limitation, because that much solar would require 10 feet around the vehicle on all sides. The solution, ironically, is a mechanical engineering question of how to accordion-style fold these panels to conveniently open them for charging while the vehicle is at a standstill. Cont'd...
"Unfortunately, based on our preliminary review, for this Administration and the majority of Americans who support expanding wind energy in the U.S., this final rule makes federal lands even less attractive to wind energy developers. This will add time, uncertainty, complexity, and expense to a process that was already more difficult than developing on private lands."
Complete with recruitment best practices, leadership tips and retention advice, SEIA's Community Engagement Committee designed this guide to assist solar companies with the practical application and implementation of diversity initiatives.
Ivan Penn and Rob Nikolewski for The LA Times: Longtime solar executive Barry Cinnamon got up Wednesday wondering what a Donald Trump administration will mean for his industry. “I woke up this morning and walked to my car and took a picture of the sun coming up, and it did indeed come up,” said Cinnamon, president of Cinnamon Solar, one of the highest-profile solar companies in Silicon Valley. Candidate Trump said a lot of things that heartened conventional oil and natural gas producers and worried the renewable energy business, which is growing fast but is still a tiny part of the energy landscape.

New England has been one of the most receptive regions in the US to renewable energy, and continues to adopt a number of different alternative energy sources.
The technology we are developing, called zeroXess, will provide electricity, lighting and Internet connectivity to rural, off-grid, underdeveloped areas throughout the world.
Solar panel prices increase slightly with the partial increasing prices in lower-priced regions but the decreasing in the US. Upstream solar cells have surged more than 20% since October, but such increase in material costs did not reflect on the prices of solar panel that continue to squeeze the margins out of the makers. However, with the erosion of margins, solar panel suppliers in the lower-priced regions, such as China and India, eventually increase the prices successfully recently, but the increasing is still limited because the demand is not strong enough. Meanwhile, in the US, where solar panels are priced relatively higher, are being pressured, following the rising speculation of stagnate US demand and the uncertain atmosphere around the Presidential Election.

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
