SUNGROW PID ZERO SOLUTION: ANOTHER INDUSTRIAL PIONEERING INNOVATION

Last year, TÜV Rheinland performed thorough on-site verification and technical review on PID Zero, and the result shows that PV and hybrid inverters equipped with the PID-Zero solution can suppress PID during the day and repair module damages at night, ensuring long life and efficient operation of the modules.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BUILDING SOLAR IN THE NORTHEAST

The Northeast holds much potential for profitable solar, but developers need to be well prepared for weather and terrain challenges, or risk eroded budgets and decreased IRRs. Engaging an expert with a deep understanding of the region’s unique risks—and is equipped with the know-how to overcome them—is invaluable in boosting your margins and gaining maximum returns from your site. In this guide, learn strategies to tackle the region’s extreme weather and tough terrain, as well as how a beginning-to-end solar solutions partner can ensure the success of your projects.

SOLID FOUNDATION STRATEGIES FOR MITIGATING FROST HEAVE IN THE NORTHEAST

With growth in the Northeast, frost heave will become a common challenge that developers and EPCs face. Improperly designed and installed solar projects could cause equipment damage, overextended schedules, and budget overruns. To minimize these risks, it’s important to engage with the right expert; one that can accurately calculate loads for frost depth and has a decade of in-field experience. Mike Faraone, Director of Engineering at Terrasmart, shares the common mistakes to avoid when planning for frost heave.

GLOBAL SOLAR INSPECTION REPORT

Check out our fourth annual report on PV system underperformance. Learn which anomalies impact power the most and gain insights into trends over time. We’ve used machine learning to analyze data from aerial thermal inspections across 20 GW of utility and C&I systems. The dataset spans 66 million modules in 32 countries including those from a range of installation types, geographies and climates.

FTC WIND MITIGATION WHITEPAPER

FTC Solar takes a proactive approach in designing for both static and dynamic wind effects. This webinar and white paper details FTC’s differentiated approach and our engagement with third-party engineering firms Rowan Williams Davies & Irwin Inc. (RWDI) and Engineered Power Solutions Inc. (EPS) to further confirm the reliability of our unique solution to wind effects through modeling and testing of both static and dynamic wind forces.

METAL ROOFING & PV SOLAR SYSTEMS PARTS 1,2 & 3

A three-part series on metal roofing and solar PV. Part 1 focused on Solar/Roof Service Life comparisons. Part 2 explains the common types of mounting systems for metal roofs, associated risks and pros/ cons of each. Part 3 will dig into more detail and the critical technical factors for solar PV systems specific to mounting on metal roofs.

WIND TURBINE FIRES

These wind turbines experience failures and setbacks, which can lead to accidents that include both property and personnel loss. One recognized factor for these accidents is fire. Fire is second only to blade failure and is one of most common factors causing property and personnel loss.
