Simply put, the beginning of the new decade will be transformative for Georgia's solar industry. The next few years will see Georgia become one of the top-producing renewable energy states in the nation.
Anjana Pasricha for VOA News: Indian scientists have designed a “solar tree” that they hope will help overcome one of the key challenges the country faces in the generation of solar power.
With photovoltaic panels placed at different levels on branches made of steel, “solar trees” could dramatically reduce the amount of land needed to develop solar parks.
“It takes about four-square meters of space to produce energy which otherwise would have required 400 square meters of space. So almost 100 times the space is saved, which as you know is very valuable,” said Daljit Singh Bedi, chief scientist at the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in New Delhi, whose laboratory in Kolkata developed the tree.
A scarce resource in India, acquisition of land to develop roads, factories and other infrastructure is a sensitive issue that has led to frequent and sometimes violent protests from displaced people. Cont'd...
RT-[E] Mount and E Mount AIR manufactured by Roof Tech Inc, recently received an evaluation report ESR#3575 from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), providing evidence that the PV Mounting system with Integrated Flexible Flashing meets code requirements.
In general, the installer just removes the roof piece, locates the rafters, drills pilot holes, fastens the product to the rafter, properly seals the penetration, and grinds the tile where the mount is located before placing the roof piece back over or around the mount.
The 'Advanced Platform' simplifies the installation process by using universal mounting hardware that works perfectly across all roof types. Smart roof connection kits then connect to the specific roof's surface. The Advanced Platform is versatile: Our common design can be your single solution for all roof types.
