Prudential Locations, a leading real estate agent in Hawaii, made a commitment to reducing its carbon footprint when it installed solar panels in 2008. Since then, the new 87-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) system at the company’s Honolulu office have reduced CO2 emissions by an estimated 650,721 kg, and
The glass that covers buildings across North America and elsewhere could become a source of solar electricity if a technology currently under development becomes commercially viable.
A company that works to develop a solar type of technology that generates electricity on see-thru glass announced that it has
India announced last year that it would take its installed solar energy capacity from near zero to 20,000 MW in a matter of just over a decade, by 2022. This is quite an ambitious agenda and several people had doubts regarding the feasibility of such a plan, especially during these tough economic times.
If micro-inverters are the current craze in the solar industry, then I predict that solar energy monitoring systems will be the next big thing.
Micro-inverters (and other parallel technology) are given lots of attention because they can increase the efficiency of a system by up to as much as 10%-20%. Similarly, solar electricity systems that are hooked up to monitoring systems have a 10% energy production increase over systems that are not hooked up to monitoring systems, according to Will Shortt, CEO of Deck
