Solar LED Lighting

Light-emitting diodes (LED) are being paired up with solar power. As governments around the world began to phase out inefficient incandescent light bulbs, banning them country by country over last decade, LED lights are taking their place. LED lights are more efficient than incandescent and fluorescent lights, performing better at producing bright light quickly and efficiently by not wasting heat energy, they also cost a lot less, as they can provide light for lon...

Scout for the Right LED Products that Would Meet Your Needs

It’s high time for us to transition to LEDs: Longer life span, reduced energy cost, improved light quality, and rock bottom prices with the help of utility rebates, etc. But how do we choose the right LEDs? Here are some tips. Watts and brightness “Wattage” doesn’t tell LED product’s brightness. A highly efficient LED could easily generate more lights than a mediocre LED while consuming less electricity. “Lumen” is commonly used to measure the exact output from LED prod...

Solar Micro Inverter – A Compact Choice for Elegant Systems

A new technology, where a micro solar inverter is installed within solar panels; thereby providing a complete solution. Solar Micro Inverter A solar micro inverter is a small inverter which handles the electric current output of a single solar panel and converts direct current (DC) electricity produced by it to alternating current (AC), which is then collected from several micro-inverters and is often fed to the electrical grid. Renesola, along with 31 subsidiaries, ...

Remote Solar Homes

Perovskites: the future of solar cells?

Anyone who is anyone in solar research and development is buzzing about perovskites. Named after its founding scientist, Russian mineralogist, Lev Perovski, the name perovskite refers to crystal structured minerals – specifically calcium titanium oxide minerals composed of calcium titanate, with the chemical formula CaTiO3. So what does this mean for the solar industry? The semiconductor can be used in solar cells. Perovskite’s main benefits are th...

ICT and solar

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) twinned with solar power provides cyclical development – electricity is required to run technology, and the more electricity access you have, the more technology can be run, and vice versa. Futurist and ICT expert, Ray Kurzweil's ‘Law of Accelerating Returns’, an extension of computer chip manufacturer, Intel chairman Gordon Moore’s Law, maps and predicts the exponential advancement of technology – taking power systems and how ...

Solar rides the electric vehicle Tesla-trend

This week the golden child of electric vehicles (EV), Elon Musk announced news for the older sibling to Musk’s famous EV manufacturer Tesla: the leading US PV installer SolarCity. The news that SolarCity could acquire American copper metallization cell manufacturer Silevo spread across the net and hyped environmental futurists. If it goes ahead, the major move could see SolarCity producing its own modules within two years. The move is meant to increase the US-made solar panel market ...
