Sunshine for Mines works as a thought leadership group, industry consultant, and technical advisor for mining companies and mine sites that are interested in how renewable energy can help improve both their economic bottom line and their environmental bottom line.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The smart window lowers building temperatures by shifting from clear to opaque under strong sunlight. When the shift to opaque occurs, the solar prototype begins electricity production.
Karen Graham for Digital Journal: An agrophotovoltaics (APV) pilot project conducted at Lake Constance has proven that farming and the use of solar panels can be compatible.
There have been three key eras of PV technology development: PV1.0, marked by the birth of the silicon PV cell and exploration around the application of clean energy; PV2.0, which brought about the global mass commercialization of solar and more affordable yet lower quality module technologies; and PV3.0, the era we are just now entering.
The Soiland Company's solar project exceeded the company's production goals, with 2,096 kWh peak day production to date (offsetting quarry demand as early as 7:00AM). Matching the system's annual production would require a 330kW+ fixed array, or an additional 528 PV panels.
Julian Spector for GTM: "The world's largest gridscale battery - the Hornsdale Power Reserve battery - charged for the first time at 8.36am and reached 31 MW in 2 mins," tweeted Audrey Zibelman, the leader of Australia's energy market operator, on Friday.
Facilities managers at large facilities often have the challenging task of managing all the flow energy in their facility with the mandate from upper management to save money on energy costs.
Drone-based inspections provide cost reduction and revenue enhancement opportunities of over $600/turbine when compared to ground-based inspections. The savings value is two folds ($1200/turbine) when compared to corrective/reactionary maintenance.
Rhett Alain for Wired: How much power and how much energy (those are two different things) could you get from solar panels on the trailer?
You can use warmth trapped within the earths crust to heat your house. Installers bury pipes underground, then fill those pipes with water. The water absorbs the earth's heat, warms up and can then be pumped - as warm air - into your house.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The ultra-environmentalist solar installation is seemingly 7-8% efficient, weighs 1/10th the weight of a standard solar panel and is held to the roof via an adhesive sticker on the backside of the panel.
AACPS is the fifth largest public school district in Maryland. At any one time, it is educating approximately 82,000 students in its 125 schools, shepherded by its administrative staff spread over nine buildings.
From roof-mount to ground-mount to trackers, there is an optimal solar solution for every customer and every site. By adding the option of dual-axis trackers to your product offerings, you can provide the full range of solar solutions and meet the needs of more customers without worrying about a complicated installation process.
AP via US News: Utility officials say a new wind farm being built in northeastern Nebraska will provide 200 megawatts of power a planned Facebook data center.
Miguel Helft for Forbes: Each looks like solar panel mounted atop a metal box. The system extracts moisture out of the air at a rate of as much as five liters per day.

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
