Tag: photovoltaic panels

A photovoltaic (in short PV) module is a packaged, connected assembly of typically 6×10 solar cells. Solar Photovoltaic panels constitute the solar array of a photovoltaic system that generates and supplies solar electricity in commercial and residential applications. Each module is rated by its DC output power under standard test conditions, and typically ranges from 100 to 365 watts. The efficiency of a module determines the area of a module given the same rated output – an 8% efficient 230 watt module will have twice the area of a 16% efficient 230 watt module.

Zero Energy Schools

Zero Energy Schools

Buildings account for nearly 40% of the nation’s energy use. Why does this matter? Because it means that while buildings are a big part of our energy challenge, they also have the potential to be a major part of the solution to a clean energy future. That’s why the US

Fronius Installs Inverters in a Former Nuclear Power Plant

Fronius Installs Inverters in a Former Nuclear Power Plant

Fronius, the global quality leader for solar energy, has carried out a very special project in Zwentendorf, Austria: a photovoltaic system has been installed on the site of a former nuclear power plant (NPP). Where once nuclear energy was to be produced, today clean, safe energy is generated from natural

Instructional Efficiency

The two universities and a public school system profiled here are taking command of their energy use in a way that reveals a phenomenal sophistication and innovation in their use of technologies to reduce and monitor campus energy demand, while integrating student education about energy use into campus infrastructure. They

A Zero-Sum Game

A Zero-Sum Game

From net zero energy buildings come strategies that can help make for smaller mechanical systems in a building’s interior and help reduce energy costs overall. While a net-zero energy building may not be your goal, adopting strategies from the net zero energy template can go a long way toward energy

Green Village on Anna Marie Island

Travel down Tamiami Trail through Bradenton, hop off and head west on Manatee Avenue, then continue straight ahead until you reach the Sunset. There you’ll find Anna Maria Island, a charming barrier island among the chain of Keys nestled along Florida’s Gulf Coast. Now follow Gulf Drive to Pine Avenue,
