Rocky Mountain Power in Utah is one of the utilities that offers a NEM alternative in their transitional tariff. Rather than compensating solar production at the full
In our Solar Landmarks series, we “travel” to famous landmarks and investigate their potential for solar energy. This week we model Fort McHenry.
Solar panels built with PERC cells have an additional layer on the back of the traditional solar cells. This additional layer allows more sunlight to be...
In response to an ever-increasing volume of intermittent renewable energy—predominantly solar, CAISO began preparing for the impacts it will have on net load.
Due to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders and temporary shutdown of non-essential businesses, there’s been a marked reduction in energy usage in California.
In this post we will dive into why west-facing panels might be more advantageous than south-facing ones, and provide recommendations based on your location
In this Solar Landmark, we explore solar designs for Santa at the Santa Claus House in North Pole, Alaska; Santa’s Workshop in North Pole, New York; and Santa Claus Village in Finland.
Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany is an enchanting site. But is it a good location for solar? We find out, using horizon shading and global LIDAR features.
Michigan, like other states, is seeing revisions to solar net metering (NEM) policies. DTE Energy's NEM successor program deals a blow to solar savings.
We present new solar design rules of thumb for optimizing savings under different net metering rule changes, based on our recent white paper analysis.
Net metering policies are being changed in several ways that limit solar savings. We explain exactly what the effects are—based on recent Aurora research.
