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.
