The RO Energy Solar Salary Guide sheds light on compensation in solar careers.
Shaving off 15% would trim new capacity additions by more than 2.3 GW this year alone, based on Energy Information Administration forecasts. Higher prices throughout the solar supply chain are being blamed.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said “cutting red tape” will help the state meets its sustainability goals and recover economically from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The 572 kW systems feature Prism Solar bifacial panels and are installed at a bioscience company’s facilities, which produce Covid-19 test kits.
Developer rPlus Hydro submits application for a final license to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for Seminoe project, a milestone reached only a few pumped storage projects in the last 20 years.
The solar developer has received more than $4.3 million in support from NYSERDA through the state’s NY-Sun program, which is helping make solar more accessible to families, businesses and communities across the New York.
The 7.66 MW of solar, 4 MWh batteries microgrid is the first fully resilient airport array that can function offgrid. The planned upgrade is part of a new JFK terminal said to be valued at $9.5 billion–what would be the largest global project financing transaction on record.
Also on the rise: 50 states of solar incentives–Illinois. Falling costs, 15 GW of US solar module production, and TOPCon trends. And more.
Chevron will remain a tenant of Bishop Ranch as the community owner adds 15.5 MW solar plus 7.1 MW / 14.2 MWh energy storage onto its mixed-use buildings.
Antora Energy says its new 2 MW factory will make thermophotovoltaic cells for thermal storage applications. The cells are based on III-V semiconductors and reportedly have a heat-to-electricity conversion efficiency of more than 40%.
Also on the rise: More hydrogen production coming to California. Wyoming laws seek to kill net metering and EVs. And more.
The EV battery manufacturer purchased 135 acres in Imperial Valley, California near the Salton Sea, which will be the site of one of the largest Gigafactories in North America with capacity to produce enough batteries to power 650,000 electric vehicles per year.
Also on the rise: Is NEM 3.0 based on flawed modeling? Virginia governor kills Ford-CATL battery plant, calling it a “front for the Chinese Communist Party”. And more.
The advanced manufacturing production (AMPC) credit and domestic content requirement (DCR) are key to spurring a more rapid U.S. renewable energy economy, Wood Mackenzie notes.
The state’s new legislative body, now fully Democratic, is quickly moving bill HB7 through the legislature. The House is scheduled to vote on the bill today.
Two renewable energy storing 10 MW / 1,000 MWh batteries will be installed by Form Energy on former Xcel Energy coal fired plants.
Rapidly deploying 5.2 GW of planned solar and storage in Puerto Rico to reach 36% renewables, a possibility raised in a report by six national laboratories, would require an improvement in the Puerto Rico utility’s practices, which involve delays at several steps of the procurement process.
Qcells will provide US-made solar modules and perform engineering, procurement, and construction for Microsoft’s solar projects.
Orange Charger is raising $2.5 million in to commercialize its low-powered 120V and 240V AC solutions.
U.S.-based Salgenx has developed a scalable redox flow battery with two separate tanks of electrolytes, one of which is saltwater. Unlike other flow batteries, the new device is membrane-free, promising big gains at the levelized cost of storage level.
Agrivoltaic installations with vertically oriented solar panels are increasingly being adopted and studied across the globe.
A U.S. research team has developed a cadmium telluride (CdTe) solar cell through a lift-off method that reportedly ensures higher crystallinity of the cadmium sulfide film. The device has a power conversion efficiency of 12.60%, an open-circuit voltage of 0.829 V, a short-circuit current density of 23.64 mA/cm2, and a fill factor of 64.30%.
Canadian scientists have developed a new way to measure the energy yield of bifacial PV systems. They said they considered the spectral albedo of ground cover like snow and sand to predict energy gains of up to 2%, in comparison with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard.
Also on the rise: Accelerating community solar in underrepresented communities. Soiling – a multibillion-dollar issue for the solar industry. And more.
