An Encouraging Outlook

An Encouraging Outlook

There are now more than one million individual solar installations nationwide, with the residential solar market remaining strong, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. The US installed 1,665 megawatts (MW) of solar PV in the first quarter of 2016 to reach 29.3 gigawatts (GW) of total installed capacity, enough

The Strongest Link in the Chain

The Strongest Link in the Chain

Renewable energy—and solar energy in par­ticular—has a problem. Because it is subject to the vagaries of sunshine and wind for power generation, it is often not available when it is needed most. For those nighttime hours when the sun is not available and cloudy days when sunlight is minimal, provisions

When Red Turns Green
