Many households in impoverished regions around the world are starting to shift away from inefficient and polluting fuel-based lighting–such as candles, firewood, and kerosene lanterns–to solar-LED systems.
By Steve ClemmerAs a certified energy geek, I always look forward to this time of year. On July 11 and July 12, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) holds their annual conference to discuss current energy technology, market and policy issues and presents results from their new Annual Energy O...
In California, the solar power industry is having a field day. For the second time in as many years, the largest electricity grid in the state broke its own solar generation record with 8,030 megawatts (MW) output at 1:06pm local time July 12, 2016.
Scientists from two universities and Los Alamos National Laboratory have made a breakthrough that could launch a new generation of solar-energy production and make hydrogen fuel-cell technology a practical reality.
The SolarASL combines the efficiency of the Hubbell ASL fixture with the environmentally friendly SEPCO solar power system. Systems are perfect for parking lot, roadway and security lighting. The long lasting LED fixtures provide great cost effectiveness with the combination of low maintenance solar power assemblies.
Switching from fuel-based lighting - such as firewood and kerosene lanterns - to solar-LED systems also create two million potential new jobs in developing countries like India, a first-of-its-kind study has found.
Developers in Australia just announced plans to build the world’s first “Tesla town” – a small suburb off Melbourne’s business district where every house will have a solar roof and a built-in Tesla Powerwall.
California has hit a new solar generation record, thanks to this week's triple-digit heat wave. SF Gate calculated that on Tuesday, the Golden State's solar power plants briefly generated enough electricity for more than 6 million homes.
