Know more about Solar Power Energy

Posted by admin on February 13th, 2011

Solar power mean conversion of sunlight into electricity. Since years solar power has been around us. But today we have understood the power solar energy. Solar energy is the greatest way to conserve our natural resources. One of the most important advantage of solar power is that we can use sun to provide enough energy to our homes and small business and is non polluting.

Recently I have heard that a Salon in California has completely switched to solar power. And the owner of the salon is not only saving money but also making money by selling solar electricity to a company.

It is the great idea for any small business. On one hand you save money and on other hand you are also making money from it. People should know about this changing climate.

Solar power is the beat and affordable way to keep our environment healthy. Some people are making solar panels by themselves by using DIY solar panels. You can also learn to make solar panels by yourself more effectively and inexpensively. The more the solar panels you will have the more the electricity will be generated by them.

Solar Power Plant in Italy

Posted by admin on February 13th, 2011

In Italy 24-mega watt solar power plant is going to be build by Norwegian solar energy firm REC, said by Norwegian solar energy firm REC today on 3rd of February 2011.

In Lazio the construction has been started already and 100,000 REC solar modules will be used.

In a statement Company told that, “The solar power plant will generate electricity about 37 million kWh. This about of electricity is sufficient for requirements of 14,000 homes”.

On Wednesday it was announced by REC that the results of it 4th quarter will be better that anticipated.

Xcel Energy completed installation of 13-kilowatt solar photovoltaic array system

Posted by admin on February 13th, 2011

13-kilowatt solar photovoltaic array system installation has been completed by Xcel Energy (based in Minneapolis) at P.R. Leyva Middle School in Carlsbad. In the New Mexico Community Solar program (started in 2009) this is the 4th project of the Xcel Energy.

In four southeastern and eastern New Mexico communities Xcel Energy has built solar devices to make people aware of advantages of solar Power. In Roswell, Hobbs and Clovis other projects have been developed.

Ben Jaime the Manager for Community and Economic Development at Xcel Energy, said the solar panels at Leyva Middle School is developed in the courtyard of the school besides shop building and these Solar panels are generating electricity for power grid in the area.

Afghanistal people hapy with solar powered street lightning

Posted by admin on February 11th, 2011

For living a normal life, Afghanistan people are helped by Solar Power light as they are heaving well little street light at night.

For the first time in year, people of Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, are enjoying the Solar Power street lights as 28 new solar powered street lightning’s are installed in the city by US engineers, and it has given a feeling of security in the city.

For the event a ribbon-cutting ceremony was marked and it has signalled the banging of 2 more solar power street lightning projects in the Afghanistan Engineering District-North’s Commander’s Emergency Response Program, or CERP, The project is similar to the project of year 2009 in Zabul province of 140 solar powered lights.

Kabul deputy mayor Abdul Ahad Wahid said that, “I know that this will have a positive impact. The moment we started lighting the road, people were extremely happy. There were like ‘wow we are living in a real city”.

More energy with Spray on a light-sensitive film

Posted by admin on February 11th, 2011

Now scientists have invented a plastic solar cell by using new energy technologies that can turn solar power into electrical energy, even on a cloudy day when their is no sunlight.

Using the same technology as the world’s smallest solar cells developed by Dr. Xiaomei Jiang is a University of South Florida, they made 12x12inch (30.5×30.5cm), solar window prototype that was used at room temperature open to spray a light-sensitive film, which is able to produce energy, and natural and artificial light. window solar photovoltaic cells employing organic polymers, a diameter of less than 1 / 4 size of a grain of rice. Organic polymer spray coating is 0.1 microns thickness.

Plastics material used in nanotechnology and contains the first solar cells able to exploit the sun’s invisible, infrared rays. The Breakthrough has led theorists to predict that plastic solar cells could one day become five times more efficient than current solar cell technology.

Such as paint, composite can be sprayed onto other materials and the used as portable electricity. Sweater coated material could power a cell phone or other wireless devices. Hydrogen-powered car painted with the film could possibly change enough energy to electricity continuously to recharge a car battery.

New Energy’s very small solar cells exhibited nearly double the power density compared to monocrystalline silicon solar cell, 8-times higher power density than the copper-indium-selenide, and more than 10 times higher power density than the flexible "second generation" thin-film amorphous-silicon.

Now solar photovoltaic array at Bus Division

Posted by admin on February 10th, 2011

The Maryland Transit Administration awarded Pepco Energy Services Inc. a 15-year, $6.2 million contract to help reduce the agency’s energy will install a roof-mounted solar photovoltaic array at its Northwest Bus Division.

Pepco will install lighting retrofits, occupancy sensors and control panels to reduce the MTA’s use of artificial light. The efforts are expected to save the MTA more than $560,000 per year, or an estimated $8.4 million over the contract term.

The array will consist of 2,288 Sharp solar power modules. Each panel is rated at 235 watts. The system, all together, will produce 638,000 kilowatts of power each year, said Pepco spokesman Scott Brown.

“The Maryland Transit Administration constantly looks for ways to maximize energy efficiency in all of our operations,” MTA CEO Ralign T. Wells said in a statement.

The comprehensive updates and green improvements will impact more than 1 million square feet at various Maryland Transit Authority properties, according to a press release on the project. Projects identified for the improvements include local bus, metro subway, light rail and MARC facilities, according to the release.

First Solar to sell 250MW power to Edison International’s (EIX)

Posted by admin on February 10th, 2011

First Solar Inc., the world’s biggest maker of thin-film photovoltaic panels Edison has signed a contract to sell the electricity from a 250-megawatt Nevada solar farm to Edison International’s (EIX) California utility, the companies announced Wednesday.

"This agreement represents another important milestone toward our goal of grid parity," said Frank De Rosa, First Solar senior vice president in a statement.

Terms of the contract, which requires California regulators’ approval, were not disclosed. The contract is subject to California Public Utilities Commission approval.

The solar power panels will be ground mounted on 2,500 acres of public land in Nevada and will be named the Silver State South.

The project is expected to begin producing electricity as early as 2014 and be fully operational by May 2017. It will create about 300 construction jobs, and the solar panels will be recycled after their useful life-span.

Solar Reserve gets approval for 150MW solar project in US

Posted by admin on February 8th, 2011

A news at Wall Street Journal says –

India is planning to add 20,000 megawatts of solar power to its grid by 2020 as it seeks to step up electricity capacity to meet the demands of a growing economy while developing clean-energy sources. The program will disburse about $20 billion in subsidies to solar power plant developers in coming years. But an Indian regulation that goes into effect in April will bar those firms from importing any foreign-made solar panels—the technology that converts sunlight into electricity.

Foreign solar-panel makers can only get a piece of the action if they set up local manufacturing plants in India through joint ventures, something few U.S. companies have expressed interest in.
