Akshat Rathi for Quartz: Wind and solar energy helped avoid between 3,000 and 12,700 premature deaths in the US between 2007 and 2015.
The project will reduce electricity grid demand by an estimated 30 to 35 percent annually at each Home Depot store; the equivalent of powering 2,300 average U.S. homes for a year.
Electricity generation for the entire country will be somewhat affected by the eclipse, but some states will see a larger drop in solar power than others, depending on how much of the sun is blocked by the moon in their specific location. Fortunately, there are plenty of energy resources available to fill the gap.
American Institute of Physics via Science Daily: Researchers have created green solar panels using soft imprint lithography to print an array of nanocylinders that scatter green light
Solar Power International 2017 was held from September 10th to 13th in Las Vegas, Nevada. This AltEnergyMag.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years events.
Timothy Cama for The Hill: A bipartisan group of senators is expressing "deep concern" over a federal agency considering potential trade penalties for imported solar panel technology.
Annette Choi for VOX: A model predicts the impact of the eclipse on the national solar energy supply will be greatest at 13:40 PM on August 21 while the eclipse is passing over Wyoming.
This year we will be demonstrating how our products work by attaching them to mock roofs. Installers will also be able to speak directly with our Sales team to learn more about new products.
We offer a full range of mounting solutions for comp/asphalt shingle, tile, metal shingle, shake, slate and low slope commercial roofs. In addition, we will showcase Quick Rack, our patented rail-free mounting system.
Along with meeting our friendly and knowledgeable staff, a visitor to AllEarth Renewables booth will collect useful information about our Dual Axis Solar Tracker solutions, gain updates on our proprietary technology, and discover financing innovations for residential and commercial solar.
We will be taking customers on a tour of our Complete System Solutions, and introduce them to our new Ku modules which generate less heat and more power.
Fred Lambert for Electrek: German electric car startup Sono Motors unveiled the crowdfunded prototype of its battery and solar-powered vehicle; the Sion.
Sonali Paul for Reuters: One of Australia's leading power suppliers, AGL Energy (AGL.AX), has offered cheap batteries to 1,000 homes with solar panels as part of what it describes as the world's biggest "virtual power plant" in Adelaide, South Australia, a state plagued by blackouts over the past year.
High-performance and flexible multiport power converters will be a key enabling component for solar-plus-storage adoption, and deployment. The power conversion system is critical when implementing solar coupled with storage, as the efficiency of conversion will come into play at several stages throughout the system: PV to grid, PV to battery, and battery to grid.
