Renewable energy is on the brink of becoming the most sought after power source in history. And why not? Sunshine and wind are free. Once the systems are in place to capture their energy and convert it into electricity, there are no “fuel costs” needed to make more electricity in the future. Add in the […]
The first solar farm on tribal land in the US has been activated. The project covers 2.2 square miles and has 3.2 million solar panels.
Google’s new Project Sunroof tool says 80% of all rooftops in the US are good candidates for rooftop solar systems.
Solar power may be able to create hydrogen from biomass at room temperature, which may open the door to a hydrogen economy.
Elon Musk tweeted last week that he could install a 100 mWh grid storage system for South Australia in less than 100 days. That has spurred other Australia based companies to offer proposals of their own.
HST Solar uses sophisticated artificial intelligence tools to scan millions of possibilities for any proposed solar installation in minutes instead of days or even weeks, thereby reducing development costs and reducing risk for investors.
The River Bend solar farm in Alabama is now online and contributing about 75 megawatts of electricity to the TVA power grid in seven southern states. Every year, it will keep 100,000 tons of carbon out of the skies over the state.
Public shools in England and Wales will see taxes on their rooftop solar systems increase 800% in April as the UK continues its war on solar power.
Ibiden, one of Apple’s largest suppliers, intends to add 20 renewable solar power facilities to power its Japanese operations, including a large floating solar farm.
