World’s Largest Solar Energy Plant Nears Completion

As discussed in this recent National Geographic article, the world's large solar energy plant, the Ivanpah Solar Plant, located in the Ivanpah Valley of California’s Mojave Desert, is nearing completion. When completed, the solar plant will contain 170,000 mirrors and produce 377 megawatts (MW) of power, more than double the previous record holder of 150 MW, and enough to power more than 140,000 homes. We hope that renewable energy megaprojects

Beyond Solar Energy Advantages

When you think of the word’s largest power plants, you probably don’t think renewable energy. However, we can thank hydroelectric, the often forgotten renewable resource, for the world’s four largest power plants. In the graph on the left, you can see how dominant hydroelectric is compared to other renewable resources. We should be excited about the great growth in solar and wind recently but must not forget about our largest

Looking at Solar Efficiency in a New Way

Reviewing the solar panels on the Solar Impulse, the solar plane currently flying across the country,  allows us to look at solar efficiency in a new way that not only could effect solar flight but also ceiling exhaust fans and roof fans. The solar panels on the plane are not the best at converting light energy into electric power by area covered, but do excel in terms weight. The lightweight

Record First Quarter with 723 MW of Solar Photovoltaics Installed

According to a report by U.S. Solar Market Insight, the US had a record first quarter with 723 MW of solar photovoltaics installed in Q1 2013. This represents a 33 percent increase over Q1 2012 and brings the cumulative US photovoltaic capacity to 7.9 gigawatts. This growth was led by residential installations, which experienced a 53% increase over the same period. Prices for residential systems fell below five dollars a

Learning from plants for Solar Power Efficiencies

While photovoltaic cells are certainly one of the best ways to produce clean energy, from a scientific perspective they are actually quite inefficient. In the average solar cell, only about 20% of the solar energy is transferred into usable electricity. This is in contrast to photosynthesis performed by plants, which reaches efficiencies of 95 percent. While in the past, we knew very little about how plants reached these efficiencies, new

SolarRoyal SR1800 Plastic -vs- Metal

Why SolarRoyal uses LG Chem LTD ABS/ASA Plastics (LG Chem Plastics) The SolarRoyal team’s goal was not only to develop a superior product, but also to select the right components. The choice of automotive grade LG Chem Plastics over metal for the housing was an easy one. We use LG Chem Plastics for our ventilator housing because: It does not conduct heat.* It is quiet and does not resonate sound

Solar Attic Fan News: MITs Solar System makes rooftop solar easy

  MITs Solar System Scientists mapped 17,000 rooftops in Cambridge, Mass., providing residents with a web interface to look up their homes and project the cost and return on investment of photovoltaic solar panels. Using satellite imagery and Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data from a previous aerial survey to create a 3-D model of Cambridge. Then the team charted the exact shape of rooftops and possible sunlight obstructions, such
