The sun provides a tremendous resource for generating clean and sustainable electricity without toxic pollution or global warming emissions. The potential environmental impacts associated with solar power - land use and habitat loss, water use, and the use of hazardous materials in manufacturing - can vary greatly depending on the technology, which includes two broad categories: photovoltaic (PV) solar cell.
BY SHANNON EDDY, Special to The Bee: As the seventh-largest economy in the world and a clean-energy leader, California plays a key role in shaping the global response to climate change. The benefits of our leadership will be on the world stage later this month during the international climate talks in Paris. Over several decades, California has successfully advanced the development of renewable energy resources. As a result, the state boasts the highest concentration of solar projects in the nation, including several of the world’s largest. Large-scale solar power plants are enabling California to meet the goals of reducing carbon emissions to 1990 levels by 2020 and generating 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030. Eleakis & Elder Photography As with any fast-growing, successful industry, it’s essential to ask questions about unintended consequences. We agree it is important to evaluate how the environmental benefits of large-scale solar – carbon reduction, reduced water use and improved local air quality – compare to any negative consequences for people and the environment.

Leading Global Companies Join HDPV to Optimize PV Systems
AES Moncagua is the second renewable generation project built by AES in El Salvador under a vision of environmental sustainability and energy diversification.
Located in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region in Canada, with an installed capacity of 51.7 MW.
Given market constraints, reducing wind measurement uncertainty at higher hub heights is crucial for the integration of taller, higher capacity turbines
More efficient turbines depend on the ability of developers to accurately assess the wind resource at higher hub heights.
Efficient Energy of Tennessee and San Francisco-based CivicSolar are project partners
DEWA completes training of 127 engineers and technicians of Electrical & Solar PV Consultants and Contractors
DEWA provides specialised training courses to engineers and technicians who are employed by photovoltaic (PV) companies.
Leaked letter & evidence session exposes folly of attack on British solar power
The Rock-It System is a fast, easy to install rail-free solar roof mount that conforms to UL Subject 2703, and holds a Class A Fire Class Resistance Rating when used with Type 1 listed PV modules.
Applied Energy Technologies' (AET) Rayportâ„˘-G ECO Racking Selected by Swinerton Renewable Energy for 7 MW California Solar Project
AET's streamlined logistics team delivers entire racking solution for 7 MW project in one week
Roscoe Properties and Circular Energy have teamed up for the first multi-family solar install in Pflugerville, TX as well as the first solar powered development for Roscoe.
Ever increasing demand for energy in Turkey is boosting the growth of renewable energy - most notably wind - in the MENAT region. Other notable opportunities for material, component and equipment suppliers to the renewable energy industry are to be found in Morocco and Egypt.
Another project breaks ground in portfolio of utility-scale installations for companies
From the Department of Energy - On Veterans Day, we honor the more than 21 million living American veterans. Here at the Department of Energy, we are honored to have the opportunity to express our gratitude to veterans of previous wars, welcome home those who have recently served, and thank the future veterans who still stand sentry for our nation. The Department of Energy is working hard to open doors to career opportunities for veterans in the dynamic solar industry, which now employs more than 174,000 people -- more than auto and light truck manufacturing -- and has been adding jobs 20 times faster than the wider economy. Already, we are proud that veterans make up more than 10 percent of the solar industry workforce. Cont'd...

Solar & Wind - Featured Product
The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
