Aerial Thermography Findings from the Field: The Lesser-Known Impact of Shading on Power Production
While each instance of shading is unique and can affect power production to varying degrees, there has been little investigation into whether shading of a single string happens in isolation, or whether it also affects neighboring, non-shaded strings and modules.
Using Digital Twins to Improve Solar Farms
"Utilizing a digital twin changes the picture by minimizing the impact of anomalies in the short term, with a seamless path to restoring power. We think of a digital twin as a ledger that provides an auditable system of record for solar assets that will last 25+ years."
How to Become a Renewable Energy Engineer?
Developing solutions and progressing green technologies are necessary to combat the climate crisis. However, it calls for experts in the renewable energy sector to support environmental recovery and enhance quality of life.
Introducing Aurora Solar's AI Solutions to Drive Solar Adoption and Accelerate a Clean Energy Future
Built on the platform delivering over 100,000+ projects a week, Aurora's AI solutions simultaneously evaluate HD map imagery and LIDAR data to generate 3D models in 30 seconds
Shading Analysis: How To Do It And Get It Right
If you put ten different people up on the same roof with the same handheld shading analysis device or behind the controls of a do-it-yourself (DIY) software platform, you'll most likely end up with ten different results.
The Three Major Methods of Designing a Rooftop Solar System
During the sales and planning phases of a residential rooftop solar project, different methods are used to figure out how to lay out the solar modules on a roof. We will talk about three methods that solar professionals often use during this phase.
Reducing Renewable Energy Installation Risks
Renewable energy is rapidly emerging as an attractive choice for businesses and households alike. Any installation project poses potential safety risks. The goal is to minimize them to keep employees well-protected.
How Digital Marketing Can Grow Your Solar Business
Any solar business who wants to stand out from their competition will have to embrace digital marketing as it is a powerful tool to use to connect with customers.
Rooftop vs. Ground Mount Residential Solar Comparison
In this article we will be discussing the main differences and possibilities of rooftop and ground mounted solar in residential installations. There are a number of variables that are in play in either scenario, and being educated on differences and possible issues you can
How to Design a Rooftop Solar System for Maximum Energy Density?
For some installations it may make sense to reduce the tilt of the modules to a less optimal incident angle. Though this means less production on a per module-basis, it can mean a significant increase in the daily unshaded collection time for the array.
How Civil Work Erodes Project Economics
Both on paper and in the field, civil engineering can quickly drain your project's margins. From the intricacies of installation logistics to the added costs of non-standard products, margins become slimmer as development becomes more and more complex.
Hanwha Q CELLS Files Patent Infringement Complaint with U.S. International Trade Commission Against JinkoSolar, LONGi Solar, and REC Group
The ITC complaint alleges that JinkoSolar, LONGi Solar, and REC Group are unlawfully importing and selling solar cells and modules that infringe Hanwha Q CELLS's patented passivation technology.
PV System Installation Tips and Training
Railless systems can sometimes save on logistics costs, come fully assembled, and go up to the roof quickly. Generally, these systems shine at low to moderate roof slopes, snow-loads and wind speeds.
Frost Heave and Solar Arrays
For continuous racks, the vertical deformation results in additional stresses on the racking system and can cause a variety of issues such as cracked modules; solar panel distortion; damage to conductor; connection failures; and more.
Designing PV Systems with Energy Storage
For the third installment in our Solar + Storage series, we'd like to highlight a recent webinar hosted by ATA Insights about designing PV systems with energy storage in the Americas.
