Racking

Deeper analysis of bifacial solar panel data – including greater cooling and how DC to AC ratios affect clipping

Soltec single axis tracker research shows greater production in a two-in-portrait configuration versus a single module by just over 2%, driven mostly by lower module temperatures as well hardware design adjustments.

Hardware Brief: Solar services, really fast module install, install of the week, module pricing flat, more!

Happy Thanksgiving y’all, hope you hugged someone this holiday. Friday – means solar hardware (and services!) – Solar Services advertising their inverter and engineering support, Gamechange installing modules really fast with a new clip, Sherin and Lodgen supported their first solar+storage and finance deal, Sungrow+Hanwha+NEXTracker in a Florida install, and a little bit more!

Hardware brief: Minimalist racking, optimized car charging, a 10 GWh/year battery factory & more!
