On the sales side, showing customers how a home consumes electricity and how their bill is derived - and then how the proposed solar array would help solve their electric bill concerns - makes solar tangible.
This article summarizes some of the current and new requirements regarding proper labeling for standard solar and wind installations.
After vigorous calculations, researchers have concluded that to drive 50 miles per day, a car needs 3.44 kW, and most of the current solar panels can produce 345 W/ft² under full sun, and that will need approximately 250 ft² of solar panels in a car.
Batteries that operate in partial state of charge (PSOC) environments can suffer from reduced charge acceptance that can lead to progressive capacity loss.
Currently, a high-efficiency car company, Aperta Motors, is conducting test drives and safety tests on a new design of cars. These Aperta are three-wheelers, covered by 34 square feet of solar panels, which provide enough energy to drive up to 40 miles on a sunny day.
When installing a solar array, having a coverboard as part of the roofing assembly is a best practice. As such, most manufacturers of solar mounts test and evaluate their mechanical attachment products with a coverboard over polyisocyanurate (polyiso) insulation.
As a way to resolve wind curtailment, the integration of hydrogen fuel at a wind farm allows flexibility to shift production to best match the resource availability with its particular operational needs and market factors.
Evaluating the Efficiency of Hydropower as an Alternative Energy Source and its Effects on the Ecosystem
Generation of hydropower, a renewable source of energy, is not a difficult feat, however, making the generation process efficient and cost effective is the real challenge.
The biggest challenge to the solar industry is the cost of land and cost of transmission to the end user. This combined with the spike in additional demand due to the rapid increase in electrical vehicles will put a tremendous burden on solar solutions.
There is a growing effort toward establishing a high-tech energy-generating system that is fundamentally inspired by nature itself: artificial photosynthesis.
Soltec Power Holdings is continuously studying and investing in innovation to offer the best products to the market. In 2020 we introduced our new SF8 tracker, under the slogan "designed for greatness".
Roof Tech growth has been within the yearly target despite the pandemic. We continue to introduce newer products and also adding additional manufacturing capabilities. We hit record-breaking numbers in the third and fourth quarter of the year despite COVID-19 shut-downs.
Although there are many challenges in the solar industry today, I believe reducing soft costs - which include all aspects of permitting and regulation of the industry - is one of the most difficult challenges to overcome.
Researchers in the industry are working to develop better turbine technology, such as higher efficiency generators and more reliable blades to minimize energy and manufacturing costs.
Gibraltar acquired Sunfig and TerraSmart to provide an end-to-end solution for our customers, which will bring greater value to solar projects of any size, any type and in any location.

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
