  • A brighter future for solar in Texas

    I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that. - Thomas Edison, in conversation with Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, 1931 According to the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO), Texas has the greatest solar energy potential of any state in the country. “If photovoltaic (PV) systems operating ...

  • Solar Energy and Power Importance

    Have you ever wondered why solar energy or power is important? You are not alone in this because it is the common question of all. Before we can understand why solar energy is important we should have a good idea of what solar energy is. Solar energy is produced by the sun. It can be harnessed like any other type of energy and used to ...

  • Solar Power - Become Energy Independent

    Did you know that the energy used to power your home through your utility company comes from non-renewable resources? What will happen in the future when these resources have been depleted? People are going to eventually have to turn to solar power. Why not start now? Once installed, you can reduce or even eliminate your energy costs while maker the earth a little greener at the same time. Solar ...


  • How to grow a solar energy garden

    Getting energy from the sun is a great idea. However, installing solar panels house-by-house is slow, costly and cumbersome, and downright inefficient if the goal is to bring solar to the masses. This problem troubled Paul Spencer after he built his own uber-efficient, custom solar home near Aspen, Colorado in 2004.  The engineer and serial entrepreneur wondered how he could replicate his ...

  • Solar Gardens are Gaining Ground in Communities

    While the idea of using solar energy appeals to many people, not everyone lives in a place where they can easily have access to it. Many people live in apartments, for example, so unless you convince your landlord to allow you to put solar panels on the roof of your building, you’re out of luck. ...

  • Wind & solar energy and nature conservation

    Climate change and the degradation of ecosystems and biodiversity cannot be solved in isolation. Land and marine ecosystems play a crucial role in the climate system, capturing roughly half of carbon dioxide emissions generated by human activities (UNEP, 2009). Protecting biodiversity preserves ecosystem services that are important for regulating the climate and helping us to adapt to the impacts ...

  • Solar`s Time to Rise and Shine.

    Photovoltaic efficiency records are being shattered, thanks to recent advances in materials science. Last month, a researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colo., loaded a postage stamp–sized solar cell onto a tray and placed it under a high-intensity pulse solar simulator. The simulator flashed a 2.5 millisecond pulse of light, and 19 mirrors reflected the ...

  • Monroe Community College Solar Installation Case Study

    Project Overview: At the end of the fall semester MCCC renewable energy students installed a 2.1 kW solar array in joint with Patriot Solar Group. The student project consists of eight 260 watt SolarWorld panels; each panel has an Enphase M-215 micro-inverter that converts the DC voltage generated by the panels into 240 volts AC which is then fed into to the electrical system of the CTC building ...

  • Bath Michigan Solar Installation Case Study

    Project Overview Patriot worked with Peninsula Solar to design a racking system that would work with limited space and not penetrate the ground surface. The ground mount array utilized a non-penetrating ballasted design to work with the existing terrain on top of an underground house. To save space in the yard, the North row utilized a longer post to allow closer ...

  • Near Term Lower Cost Solar Electric Power for US Commercial Customers

    Market Opportunities The first market for PV electric power panels was for space satellites. While the single crystal cells used in these panels made these panels very expensive, this was unimportant for that market. That market emphasized reliability, not cost. As these panels came down to earth for off-grid remote applications, again the emphasis was on reliability and low maintenance, not ...
