Why switch to Solar?

Save Money

The fuel prices are getting higher and higher and there is little hope for the trend to change in the near future. Going solar helps you save on energy costs. According to research, solar can help cut down an average range of 40 to 60% of your power company bill.

May Boost Home Value

Homes that have purchased residential solar panels for their roofs have a higher market value and are likely to find a buyer more quickly if put up for sale. According to estate agents, many homebuyers now look for homes with preinstalled panels as it saves them the installation costs and other related costs and hassles.

Low Maintenance

If you’re concerned about the high cost of maintenance of these PV panels, then you can stop now. These panels are super low maintenance. They require optional seasonal cleaning. This is only to clear dust or dirt from the panels to remove all things that obstruct the sun rays from reaching the panels however precipitation is usually enough cleaning.

Low Energy Bills

Solar panels use energy from the sun – and you don’t have to buy energy from the sun. Also, with rapidly increasing electricity prices, staying on the grid is only likely to fizzle out your savings.

Government Incentives and Policies

Tax rebates and government incentives are the reasons why solar power has started spreading across America. “The global market for solar panels is expected to soar to a record high in the first half of 2016 because of strong demand as well as favorable policies in the U.S. and China, says a new report from research firm IHS Technology.”

Reduce Pollution

Going solar means you say no to greenhouse gases and help reduce the carbon footprint and fossil fuels in the environment. Even though you may think it only a small contribution every little step towards reducing pollution can have a strong impact in the long run.

Helping homeowners make the smart switch to Solar

“The goal at Solar Research Group is to here help you take control of your electricity bill and stop overpaying for power. Saving money while increasing the value of your home is a great move for any home owner

Tesla’s Battery Revolution Just Reached Critical Mass

By | Solar News | No Comments

Tesla Motors Inc. is making a huge bet that millions of small batteries can be strung together to help kick fossil fuels off the grid. The idea is a powerful one—one that’s been used to help justify the company’s $5 billion factory near Reno, Nev.—but batteries have so far only appeared in a handful of true, grid-scale pilot projects.

That changes this week.

Three massive battery storage plants—built by Tesla, AES Corp., and Altagas Ltd.—are all officially going live in southern California at about the same time. Any one of these projects would have been the largest battery storage facility ever built. Combined, they amount to 15 percent of the battery storage installed planet-wide last year.

Ribbons will be cut and executives will take their bows. But this is a revolution that’s just getting started, Tesla Chief Technology Officer J.B. Straubel said in an interview on Friday. “It’s sort of hard to comprehend sometimes the speed all this is going at,” he said. “Our storage is growing as fast as we can humanly scale it.” Read More

Solar and Distributed Energy Resource Data Now Integrates with Utility Management System

By | Solar News | No Comments

On Wednesday, February 1 during DistribuTECH, operational intelligence provider OSIsoft and distributed energy storage company Sunverge Energy announced that they have entered into a technology alliance that will enable utilities to integrate data from Sunverge’s residential storage systems directly into OSIsoft’s PI System.

The new alliance streamlines data management and ultimately paves the way for a more agile, distributed grid by making it easier for utilities to “see” and utilize the edge-of-the-grid data generated by the Sunverge systems in the context of their overall operations, according to the companies.

Sunverge’s energy storage system combines batteries, power electronics, and multiple energy inputs in a UL-certified appliance controlled by the Sunverge energy management software. Read More

Stanford Engineers Create a Low-cost Battery for Storing Renewable Energy

By | Solar News | No Comments

A battery made with urea, commonly found in fertilizers and mammal urine, could provide a low-cost way of storing energy produced through solar power or other forms of renewable energy for consumption during off hours.

Developed by Stanford chemistry Professor Hongjie Dai and doctoral candidate Michael Angell, the battery is nonflammable and contains electrodes made from abundant aluminum and graphite. Its electrolyte’s main ingredient, urea, is already industrially produced by the ton for plant fertilizers.

“So essentially, what you have is a battery made with some of the cheapest and most abundant materials you can find on Earth. And it actually has good performance,” said Dai. “Who would have thought you could take graphite, aluminum, urea, and actually make a battery that can cycle for a pretty long time?” Read More
