Sones – unit of how loud a sound is perceived

The sone is a unit of how loud a sound is perceived. The sone scale is linear. Doubling the perceived loudness doubles the sone value. In acoustics, loudness is the subjective perception of sound pressure. The study of apparent loudness is included in the topic of psychoacoustics and employs methods of psychophysics  <wikipedia>. GOOGLE DEFINITION: What is a sone? A sone is a measure of loudness. The higher the sone

PowerShield Installation Notes

NOTE: SolarRoyal LLC recommends utilizing an insured, bonded and licensed electrician.               Prior to opening the breaker panel MAKE CERTAIN THE MAIN BREAKER IS IN THE OFF POSITION. Secure the two red leads (wires) of the unit to the two (2x) 20amp breakers (one on each terminal and preferably at the bottom of each leg). Secure the green wire from the unit to the ground bar

Renewables Provide 99% of All New US Electrical Generating Capacity in October (copy)

According to the latest "Energy Infrastructure Update" report from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Office of Energy Projects, solar, biomass, and wind "units" provided 694 MW of new electrical generating capacity last month or 99.3% of all new generation placed in-service (the balance of 5 MW was provided by oil.) Twelve new solar units accounted for 504 MW or 72.1% of all new electrical generating capacity in October 2013 followed

Install a solar attic fan at your home. Enthusiasm is contagious!

Residents are more likely to install solar panels on their own homes if their neighbours have also embraced the technology. A study by Yale and New York University investigating the effects of social interaction on adoption of solar photovoltaic panels -- i.e. whether other people's enthusiasm for solar power is contagious -- discovered that an increase of just ten solar panel installations in a post code was accompanied by 7.8

High-Concentration Solar Photovoltaic Systems to Reach Greater Efficiencies

  Consistent improvements in technology and gradually lower costs will drive high-concentration photovoltaic (HCPV) systems to superior efficiencies, making HCPV an increasingly viable rival to conventional solar-generating solutions, according to the latest analysis from IHS Technology. The cell efficiency of HCPV systems, currently at 40 to 42 percent, will exceed 45 percent by 2017. Such cells, used with concentrating optics, will then lead to commercial-system efficiencies approaching 40 percent, compared

California More Than Doubles Solar Energy In 2013

California installed more megawatts of solar energy in 2013 than it did in the last 30 years combined, the California Solar Energy Industries Association reported. "It took California over 30 years to build 1,000 MW of rooftop solar, hitting that landmark in early 2013. Today, California is closing out the year with more than 2,000 MW of rooftop solar systems installed statewide," CALSEIA executive director Bernadette Del Chiaro said. The number is

Europe’s Way of Encouraging Solar Power Arrives in the U.S.

  Solar cells adorn the roofs of many homes and warehouses across Germany, while the bright white blades of wind turbines are a frequent sight against the sky in Spain. If one day these machines become as common on the plains and rooftops of the United States as they are abroad, it may be because the financing technique that gave Europe an early lead in renewable energy is starting to cross the

From Ford, a Plug-In That Tracks the Sun

If Stonehenge had been built with a visitor’s parking lot, the spaces might have looked something like what Ford proposes for its C-Max Solar Energi, a plug-in hybrid with a rooftop solar panel. The roof of the Ford C-Max Solar Energi Concept is covered with photovoltaic cells. Stonehenge, scientists tell us, took account of the sun’s changing path across the sky, using giant stone monoliths as seasonal alignment markers. Likewise,

North Carolina has morphed into a solar power leader this year

What was one of the hottest solar states in 2013 in the U.S.? Would you expect it was North Carolina? Yes, North Carolina is home to Apple’s two recently finished massive (40 MW total) solar panel farms. But the state also has emerged on its own as a major market for solar. According to the latest report from the Solar Energy Industry Association and GTM Research, North Carolina was the third most active solar
