“Designing systems so that panels operate as close as possible to their Maximum Power Point is critical to maximizing the performance of the system. A large central inverter such as the Solectria 500XTM has one power point, which means that all panels in the array will produce the same voltage and amperage. If the array is uniform and free from shading, this is generally not a major issue.” Here
Electrochromic glazing provides a dynamic solution to control solar heat gain and light, while preserving the view and connection to the outdoors. Numerous studies have shown improved learning environments, increased productivity, and better health outcomes when a view and connection to the outdoors is maintained. Here
Veteran Bob “Hot Rod” Rohr will explain the importance of insulation in hydronic, solar and GEO installs. He will offer helpful pointers in how to select and install the proper products for best results.
A new solar research institute is opening in a Southeastern state where coal still wants to be king and solar is barely there: Alabama.
The state’s largest utility, Alabama Power, wants to work with the new Southeastern Solar Research Center (SSRC) in Birmingham (EnergyWire, June 12). The utility wants to evaluate how different solar photovoltaic systems operate and perform under the region’s hot and humid conditions, according to information the SSRC released last week.
Remote Solar Isolator The Remote Solar Isolator is able to remove all lethal voltages on any solar array providing safe access for all emergency services. it stops the combining of solar panels whenever the grid power is removed.
