The “Buy American” clause tries to combat Chinese solar dominance

Posted by admin on February 14th, 2011

As this week the Defence Secretary Robert Gates meets with his Chinese counterparts it has come into lime light that the American President, Obama has approved a military authorization bill last week which states that the Solar panels must be purchased from the US owned companies by the Defence Department.

Amidst the increasing tensions between the world’s two largest economies, the “Buy American” clause might add grease to the fire. About 50 percent supply of the world’s solar panel cells is from China but still the American President Obama believes that U.S. will occupy the peak global position in the solar power market.

It has been debated by many analysts that the Chinese domestic solar market has been non justly popped up by offering large assistances to the domestic solar power producers and to beat the Chinese dominance in solar manufacturing both House and Senate lawmakers canvassed the “Buy American” clause.

States Support To The Green Power

Posted by admin on February 14th, 2011

The Power Tariff Policy being amended on Thursday by the Cabinet to make it obligatory for the State Government to have solar energy as 3 percent of their total power by 2022 which is an attempt to encourage solar energy.

According to an official statement the solar power purchase for states may start up with 0.25 percent in the first phase which goes up to 3 percent by 2022. And the amendment in the tariff policy is in accordance with the National Solar Mission Strategy, which was approved by the Cabinet on 19th November’ 2009

According to the amendment, the power purchased by the state electricity boards (SEBs) or other state utilities will be complemented by the solar specific Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) mechanism through which solar power generation companies will sell certificates to the buyers. And the buyers will also get some help by these certificates to meet their solar power purchasing obligation.

First Solar Purchased RayTracker to reinforce the Power Yield

Posted by admin on February 14th, 2011

A startup of Idealab, called the RayTracker has been purchased on Friday by the First Solar Inc. which is the U.S. solar power manufacturer. This RayTracker can make the equipments to push up the amount of energy produced by the Solar panels. But the terms and conditions of the deal were not revealed.

Alan Bernheimer, First Solar spokesman said that “In this way the First Solar can reinforce its solar panels yield and reduce the cost of the energy produced by the solar farms by using Ray Tracker’s tracking technology.” He further added that “To reduce the accelerated energy cost and to optimize the energy outputs the purchasers are immensely interested in such tracking technologies.”

Solar Power demand to increase

Posted by admin on February 13th, 2011

Global demand for solar power cells will increase 25 percent next year after more than doubling to a record this year, according to industry publisher Solarbuzz.

Solar manufacturers will deliver 20,400 megawatts to customers next year, up from an estimated 16,300 megawatts this year, San Francisco-based Solarbuzz said today in a report.

Demand for solar energy has soared as governments seek to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and cut emissions of greenhouse gases by power plants. A rapid expansion of solar panel production, mostly in Asia, has helped to reduce the cost of solar power in the U.S. to an average of $3.47 per watt in this month, compared with $4.77 in December 2007, according to Solarbuzz surveys.

“The large price reductions of 2009 created the platform for spectacular growth,” Solarbuzz President Craig Stevens said in the report. “They will need to fall further than incentive tariffs in key world markets to maintain strong growth next year.”

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.
