What developers are calling the largest rooftop residential solar electric power system in the United States is now soaking up the sun's rays and providing power to both the residence and the local electrical grid. The 44.5 kW grid tied system, installed by Irvine-based GenSelf Corporation, provides approximately 90 percent of the electricity for a large home in Southern California. The electrical loads include air conditioning units, water pumps, and outdoor lighting for the expansive compound. The system consists of 270 Sharp 165-watt modules and 15 SMA 2500 "Sunny Boy" inverters obtained from SunWize Technologies.
From a backwoods, off-grid cabin, to a series of municipal bus-shelters, solar energy often provides its largest payback when it negates the need to run costly new power lines to run certain electronics. The Massachusetts-based Seahorse Power Company has taken this principle and applied it to small rugged trash compactors for use in public areas. The company recently raised $1.1 million in angel and venture funding to meet manufacturing and sales demand for its "BigBelly" line of solar-powered trash compactors. Company PR follows.
For renters and for property owners with inadequate roof space, the many benefits of solar electricity may seem out of reach. About half of all households and businesses in the U.S. are not viable candidates to host a PV system. Community-shared solar offers these electricity customers a way to take advantage of solar PV by buying an interest in an […]
Hydrogen fueling stations don't normally mix with retail gasoline, but the U.S. based company Air Products put a hydrogen fuel pump at a BP filling station in Singapore.
The Cleantech Group, Credit Suisse and the Consensus Business Group yesterday announced a strategic business relationship to accelerate global investment in clean technologies. As part of the strategic business relationship, Credit Suisse and funds advised by Consensus Business Group acquired minority equity positions in the Cleantech Group.
A new report on energy efficiency could be the key to breaking the logjam in Congress on energy and climate legislation. Somebody needs to slip Energy Efficiency in the South, by researchers at Georgia Tech University working on behalf of the Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance, under the Oval Office door so the President can see that it gets to the […]
While dealing with sooty clouds from massive forest fires in the past several weeks, Indonesia has submitted its post-2020 climate action plan, known as an Intended Nationally Determined Contribution.
Integrating large quantities of renewable generation with low-carbon technology will require the development of large flexible carbon-free generation and storage assets. Over the last 40 years, numerous large capacity pumped-storage hydropower plants (PSPs) have been built worldwide, many of which could be retrofitted to provide grid-balancing services that the grid of the future will need.
Community solar is gaining traction in many states. The concept, also known as shared solar or solar gardens, originated in the mid-2000s as a way to allow broader participation in the ownership of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, while also encouraging local development.
