Avoid Dangerous Power Shutdowns by Going Solar

Avoid Dangerous Power Shutdowns by Going Solar

Posted on Oct 14, 2019

Home and business owners are finding more reasons all the time to ditch their utility company. First it was to find a more sustainable energy resource. With access to fossil fuels dwindling every decade and a virtually limitless supply of photon beaming from the sun, it made sense to seek solar as an alternative energy source.

The next wave of solar advocates wanted to look for more environmentally-friendly ways to produce energy. They found by going solar they were able to cut down greenhouse emissions and reduce their carbon footprint. So, again solar was the answer.

Next, we have home and business owners concerned with having to pay escalating utility costs. Purchasers of solar power generation systems found that in just a few short years solar costs break even with power...

Trumps Solar Tariffs lead to more US Businesses

Trump’s Solar Tariffs lead to more U.S. Businesses

Posted on Oct 1, 2019

In the wake of the International Trade Commission (ITC) hearings that took place in 2017, we have seen President Trump’s solar tariffs take affect against foreign dumping. Critics of the order were speculating that this would ultimately hurt the solar industry, and at first it seemed it might have. But in recent months, we have noticed the emergence of foreign companies setting up shop inside the United States in order to remain competitive in the American solar market.

The latest of these relocating companies is Hanwha Q Cells—a 20 year old solar module manufacturer employing 8,500, previously known for its sales headquarters in Oceania, Asia, and Europe. Now we can add America to that list as they have recently opened a manufacturing location in Dalton, GA alongside their Irvine, CA sales office....

The Trick played by Utility Companies

Utility companies like to be the only game in town. They foster intergenerational dependency on their grid and fossil fuel resources which they charge top dollar for and continually escalate the price of. We are made to think that there is no other way and we have no other choice but to shell out hundreds or sometimes thousands of dollars per month to obtain access to their energy supply, without ever owning a piece of the power station that generates all this energy. And these utility companies produce outages that often leave thousands or even millions without power at a time. For example, between 2008 and 2017, over 11.5 million homes were affected by power outages in the state of Texas alone, forcing homeowners to endure more than 1,600 power cuts.

Bifacial Solar Panels

Double-Sided Solar Panels Entering the Market

Posted on Sep 3, 2019

Solar Energy has had some time now to assimilate into the modern way of living. Nearly 3 million solar panel installations have proven that harnessing the sun for energy is exactly what nature intended and the rewards are incalculable. Homeowners and business owners alike have truly been taking the power to produce their electricity into their own hands, such that now utility companies are changing their business model to adapt to the integration of solar technology. This transforming landscape will only be the catalyst to yet, even more of a solar carveout. Solar technology itself has also evolved over time. We have seen roof mounts, ground mounts, portable charging devices, and even rotating solar panels. We’ve seen micro inverters, power optimizers, and battery backup systems. These solar products have become more efficient, unbreakable, and longer...
