National labs and universities are exploring the synergies of co-locating solar with cattle or sheep, crops, pollinator-friendly native plants, soil rehabilitation and other ecosystem services.
Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory made a breakthrough in high efficiency and stability for perovskite solar cells.
Utility Arizona Public Service has commissioned Generac to deliver grid capacity from residential energy storage systems under a multi-year contract in which it will provide capacity and advanced grid services.
A novel electrochemical robotic arm is under development at the University of Arizona to identify perovskite defects during manufacturing rather than after to improve durability.
The developer entered a joint venture to deliver 300 MW of solar, 600 MWh of battery energy storage to Arizona’s Southwest Public Power Agency.
Also on the rise: Three million U.S. jobs are dedicated to decarbonizing energy. War pushes Ukraine to deploy solar. CleanCapital acquires BQ Energy. And more!
The home chosen for the first demonstration system can use its solar system when the sun is shining and the charged battery when it’s not, even when temperatures spike well over 100 F.
The 15 MW Raptor Ridge solar array features 35,500 bifacial modules housed on Solar FlexRack single-axis trackers.
Nextracker will now have a manufacturing line dedicated to producing steel tracker components for use in utility-scale solar power plants at Atkore’ Phoenix, Arizona facility, which has been expanded and reconfigured with new capacity dedicated to Nextracker products.
The Gilbert, Arizona facility will be able to process up to 10,000 metric tons of manufacturing scrap and end-of-life batteries per year.
