Our goal is to connect regular Americans to clean local energy by providing tools, resources, and information to help you start a renewable energy project in your community.
Apple Inc invests millions of dollars into developing a wind energy storage solution with their Unitest States Patent.
Affordable Energy Solutions of Huntsville is going to work in the Philippines. Normally limited to Alabama and Southern Tennessee, the firm is branching out. A team from the firm will be developing and teaching a two-day class on “Energy Efficiency Planning for Optimization” in Manila this spring. While there, we will install at least one grid-tied photovoltaic system with battery backup.
The PV Power Map is a report of national solar resource availability as illustrated by the monthly energy output of a nominal 1-kilowatt (kW) photovoltaic (PV) system by location. As illustrated by the map, much of the Western United States experienced warm and dry weather conditions, which facilitated average-to-above average solar energy production.
By Will Kessler If New England is to hoist itself up from reliance on fossil-based energy, we need to re-think some priorities and look at solar panels differently. A solar developer working in an historic district or an older building is often confronted with a hurdle called “contextual appropriateness.” Often, the process for approval by [...]
By Andrew Mills and Ryan Wiser Recent declines in the cost of photovoltaic (PV) energy, increasing experience with the deployment of concentrating solar power (CSP), the availability of tax-based incentives for solar, and state renewables portfolio standards (RPS) (some with solar-specific requirements) have led to increased interest in solar power among U.S. load-serving entities (LSEs).
