Microgrids missing from Biden’s solar plan

Microgrids missing from Biden’s solar plan

Instead of undertaking fundamental industry structure analysis, with examination of strategic, technical, and economic evaluation of options in the electricity industry, what we have is obvious, anticlimactic: “deploy solar.”

California's venture into electricity deregulation a decade ago led to what the children's author Lemony Snicket might refer to as a "series of unfortunate events."
Children’s Play – The ABC’s of Solar Power

Children’s Play – The ABC’s of Solar Power

Solar energy is a smart and energy efficient way to power your home. We believe it’s important to teach children about solar so that they will be in a better position to make the right energy choices when they are older. However, solar power can be confusing to understand, even for adults. Palmetto Solar wants to help simplify solar energy for your kids and get them excited about going solar! Use these simple solar ABC’s to initiate the solar energy talk with your kids. . . . . . “A” — Solar Power is Awesome! Solar energy is just another way of saying energy from the sun. The sun is everywhere and gives off more energy in one second, than people have used from the beginning of time! When the suns’ rays reach Earth, the energy can be collected and used to power anything from calculators and road signs to bigger things like buildings, planes and your home. “B” — Because Solar Power is good for you and your family! Solar energy is a form of clean energy and is good for the planet. Fossil fuels such as coal and oil are harmful to Earth and cause pollution. The exhaust that comes out of our cars gets into the air that we breathe and makes us sick, oil spills have killed thousands of animals, and the atmosphere around our planet has been damaged by people all over the world using fossil fuels. Another problem with fossil fuels is that they are running out! This makes them harder to get and more expensive. When we switch to solar energy we never have to worry about harming our planet or running out of energy! “C” — Solar Power is Cool & Saves Cash! In order to capture the suns’ rays to power your home, you need to put solar panels on your roof. When the sunlight hits the solar panels, it is turned directly into energy that can be used to power your home. The solar panels on your roof can make enough energy to power everything in your home including your refrigerator, T.V., computer, and even your video game systems. When you go solar, you create your own energy. This means your power bill is much lower. When parents don’t have to pay high electricity bills anymore they will have more money for fun things like going on a family vacation, going to the movies, or buying toys! Using solar panels saves money and helps the planet at the same time. . . . . . Switching to solar energy is an easy transition for the whole family. Be sure your kids are well informed with all the kid-friendly facts about solar power, and they’ll be just as excited as you about going solar.  Contact our team of consultants to start the process and start seeing the benefits of solar today! Follow Palmetto Solar on our Facebook and Twitter pages to stay up to date on the latest solar news and clean energy information. We round up the info you care about and make it easy to share with others. We love spreading the latest solar news and information. We hope that you will too.   Palmetto Solar GoPalmettoSolar.com Palmetto Palmetto.com

Energy Research and the Cobbler’s Children

Energy Research and the Cobbler’s Children

Scientific research has brought us products that offer greater energy efficiency. But is research, itself, energy efficient? Evan Mills, staff scientist with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, raises this question and points out what may be a largely untapped market for energy efficiency companies: research labs. (See Environmental Science & Technology, http://eetd.lbl.gov/emills/pubs/pdf/sustainable-scientists.pdf.) US researchers “unwittingly” spend about $10 billion annually […]
Photovoltaic Installations: Around the World

Photovoltaic Installations: Around the World

We went looking for photovoltaic installations that were either utility-scale ground-mount systems or smaller roof-top installations. We found those, plus a little of everything in between. In this category, we recognize large and small installations in Canada, Tibet, Gambia, Belgium, California and Shenzhen, and a special project at a children's museum in North Carolina.
Illinois Soy Makes it to Big City Biodiesel Program

Illinois Soy Makes it to Big City Biodiesel Program

Diesel fuel emissions have gained, with cause, a reputation as a lung irritant and contributor to childhood asthma because it is used in school buses across the nation. Chicago School Transit has decided to address the problem by becoming the first school bus service in the Chicago Metropolitan Area to use soy-based biodiesel fuel, which is known to reduce hazardous exhaust emissions between 15 and 20 percent.
