Lead Acid Battery Install and Maintenance Tips

Steve Higgins, Technical Services Manager at Rolls Battery highlights some of the frequently asked questions when it comes to proper maintenance and service of lead acid batteries.

How to Protect Solar Panels from Environmental Damage

Solar PV systems spend all their time outside, so it's natural for them to encounter the occasional animal droppings or falling acorns. You may wonder how to keep them intact when more prominent issues like thunderstorms and hurricanes roll around, though.

Wind Turbines - Safe Operation After Expired Service Life

As wind farms age, an increasing number of turbine operators are confronted with crucial business decisions. Should the turbines be decommissioned? Will replacement bring a benefit?

Emerging Methods for Wind Turbine Operation and Maintenance

With the robust growth in the wind energy market, industry players have increased their focus on the optimization of O&M cost and aiming to sharpen their O&M strategies.

LiDAR Technology Guides Measure's Automated, High Definition Wind Turbine Inspections

The LiDAR system that is mounted on the drone is used not only to navigate close to the blade but also to obtain spatial information about the blade. After a mission is completed, the data import process associates each image with the corresponding spatial information...

Consistent Battery Maintenance Is Key To Longevity And Performance

Failing to consistently check water levels and add water to your batteries can also result in low capacity and eventual battery failure if left unchecked.

O&M Considerations for Residential and C&I Rooftop Solar

This white paper aims to provide an overview of the US utility rooftop solar market, and the main challenges it faces in terms of O&M

Talking with REC Solar about Preventing Solar System Fires

Faulty connections during installation can lead to hot spots, and eventually to fires, faulty equipment either due to defects during the manufacturing process or due to damage or lack of maintenance, general degradation.

PV O&M Market Trends USA - Cost Reduction, Consolidation, Import Tariffs, Technology

The quest for cost reduction in O&M is driving technology innovation in areas such as robotics and automation, as well as the development of more effective systems for asset management, monitoring, workflows and more.

Data collected will enable both companies to roll out technology on larger-sized wind turbines

The Challenges of Maintaining the Leading Edge

A variety of studies have investigated the costs and strategies of O&M for Wind Power, some have found that these O&M ventures can account for as much as 30% of the overall per-MWh-cost for wind turbines.

Extending the Life of Wind Turbine Components

Specialized PVD coatings and nitriding significantly increase the durability and lifespan of wind turbine components like roller bearings and planetary gears under metal-on-metal, high load conditions

What did You Miss When You Bought Your Solar System? How to Assure You Save For Your Systems Life Time

Though there is a perception that maintenance costs money and a solar system should run on its own, preventative maintenance can increase your ROI by 25% and reduce your cost significantly.

Understanding Battery Degradation

Batteries may degrade gracefully up to a point, then experience "rapid fade" and lose capacity quickly. A system that has been designed to meet a given level of demand will, at some point, be unable to do so.

Power Utility Replaces Aging Transformers with Customized, Drop-in Units

POWER MAX™ Ballasted Roof Mounting System

POWER MAX™ Ballasted Roof Mounting System

Preformed Line Products introduces the POWER MAX Ballasted Roof Mounting System. The POWER MAX solar mounting system is engineered to maximize energy output on commercial flat roofs. Developed with the professional installer in mind, this system offers adjustable inter-row spacing in the field of up to 11 inches. It features 50% fewer components and a simplified design resulting in faster assembly rates and labor savings on every project. Available in a flush mount, 5˚ or 10˚ tilt or higher density dual tilt design, the POWER MAX base arrives stacked on pallets providing easier transport to the roof. Engineered as a fully ballasted, non-penetrating system, it accepts standard concrete blocks and is qualified by wind tunnel testing.
