Solar CEO Tackles 10 Tough Objections to Renewable Energy

Here are some effective ways to convince the powers that are, well, in power but not necessarily in the know when it comes to power, about the value solar power has.

Solar Aesthetics

A lot of home owners and business owners want to go solar but do not like the look of commodity modules on the roof or simply don't have great solar access on their roof.

50 Resources for Solar Energy Professionals

With so many competing interests and limited time, fulfilling the responsibilities of a solar energy professional is becoming more challenging. We compiled this list and want to share these resources with you.

New Control Strategy Helps Reap Maximum Power from Wind Farms

UT Dallas researchers use supercomputers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center to develop methods that can improve wind energy production.

Improving Energy Production by 10% with Tigo's Selective Deployment

A single shaded panel impacts overall string production if not optimized, but optimizing every panel in the string drives up cost. Tigo Flex MLPE TS4 solution allows for selective optimization of the single shaded panel to recover lost energy and save on cost.

Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs)

While SRECs can represent a valuable financing option for your solar installation, it would behoove you to do your homework to figure out what your state's SREC market looks like currently, as well as what it looked like in the past.

The Challenges of Maintaining the Leading Edge

A variety of studies have investigated the costs and strategies of O&M for Wind Power, some have found that these O&M ventures can account for as much as 30% of the overall per-MWh-cost for wind turbines.

Case Study: S-5! in Mkweni, South Africa

Mkweni, a farm located well off the electrical grid on the remote Wild Coast region of South Africa, determined a roof-mounted solar array was the best solution for their needs.

sonnen Microgrid Brings Power, Shelter and Relief to a Farming Community in Puerto Rico

The new system including 100 kW generator is mobile and needs less construction material than wind turbines. Additionally the Kitepower system can flexibly use winds up to an altitude of 500 m.

Maximize Production and Revenues of Utility-Scale Solar with DC-Coupled Energy Storage

DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage.

The Future of Organic Photovoltaics

At this time, OPVs are applicable only in limited markets that require lightweight, flexibility, and variable angle performance.

Best Practices: Installing PV on Tile Roof

The use of either hanger bolt assemblies or standoffs mean that you'll need to drill, grind or cut the tile when installing, which is not an ideal solution, and will make the time you spend on the roof more time consuming as well as more frustrating.

DVO Commissions First Anaerobic Digester Installation in Pennsylvania

The dairy is utilizing the separated digested solids for bedding, having previously bedded with sand. The digested liquid is stored in a lagoon to be applied as fertilizer on to growing crops, increasing crop yield and reducing the likelihood of nutrient runoff.

Road Trips Could Be Made Much More Sustainable Through Accessible Electric Vehicles

Everyone is talking about electric cars, but small passenger vehicles aren't the only ones that are switching to electric. Recreational vehicles, or RVs, are also starting to make the switch to electric.
