The long-term success of a PV system ultimately relies heavily on the quality of the components within it - and too often many inverter manufacturers cut corners to achieve less expensive products that will sell quickly.
Developing an effective solar sales strategy can be challenging: when you're facing tough competitors in a crowded market, dealing with varying customer needs and values, and finding creative ways to offer value, it's easy to overlook the basics.
Robert Ferris for CNBC: Tesla said the first two styles of its solar roof will be priced at about $21.85 per square foot. That price is slightly lower than the $24.50 per square foot that Consumer Reports had expected.
Tom Randall for Bloomberg: Elon Musk says orders will begin today. Pricing details have yet to be revealed.
Megan Treacy for TreeHugger: The long distance from shore has the benefit of being beyond the horizon so there is no visible evidence of it from shore but it also carries the benefit of harnessing the stronger winds in that area.
The Intersolar AWARD is celebrating its 10th anniversary: The award honors pioneering products and solutions in the solar industry for the 10th time running.
Solar Energy Index Underperforms S&P in Q1 2017
Allison Mills for Phys.org: Distributed microgrid tech can secure the electrical grids at military bases to reduce the impact of cyberattacks, physical attacks from terrorists and natural disasters.

As more smart home and storage products become available, it is easy to imagine a world where consumers have much more control over how they use their energy.
A COMPLETELY FLAT SITE with no changes in slope or terrain is rare to find even at only 10 or 20 acres, however grading an entire 150-acre site would quickly raise costs on the project beyond the point of feasibility.
Anmar Frangoul for CNBC: Released on Tuesday, the GWEC's Global Wind Report: Annual Market Update forecasts nearly 60 GW of wind installations this year, with cumulative installed capacity seen reaching more than 800 GW by the end of 2021.
The thing to realize is that alternative energy is no longer a novelty. It is being driven these days, not so much by political agendas and idealism, but by powerful market forces.
Tom Randall for Bloomberg: Wind and solar are about to become unstoppable, natural gas and oil production are approaching their peak, and electric cars and batteries for the grid are waiting to take over.
