    Heliowatcher allows solar panels to track the sun
    Earth Techling    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    They're called solar panels for a reason: They need the sun in order to generate electricity. Direct sunlight is the must-have ingredient on which all other elements of solar energy production depends. You might think that simply placing solar panels on a rooftop or balcony free from shade would be enough. Except there's that small matter of earth rotating on its axis. So throughout the day, the sun moves across the sky, cutting into the efficiency of fixed panels. More

    Solar array on Baylor School campus Serves students and saves money
    The Chattanoogan    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    A 200-kilowatt solar power array installed on Baylor School's campus began generating power in April, providing a savings in energy costs while giving students a real-life laboratory in which to study sustainable energy. Located on the former WDOD-FM property behind Heywood Stadium in Chattanooga, Tenn., the 858-module array sits on a four-acre plot and connects directly into the grid, providing power for a portion of the core campus buildings and reducing the school's carbon dioxide emissions.

    Solar power generating social change
    The San Francisco Chronicle    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    U.S. Navy veteran Elmer Rankin, 71, has a failing heart, prostate cancer and arthritis that keeps him in a wheelchair. Last year, Rankin, who survives on his Social Security checks, could no longer afford the mounting costs to heat his home and power the oxygen tank he uses every night. Rankin turned down the heat and got so cold that he wound up in the hospital. Fortunately, while Rankin's health remains precarious, today he's no longer scrambling to pay for power. More

    Solar panels shade cattle in win-win for agribusiness
    Earth Techling    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    A California solar developer has installed nearly half a megawatt of solar power on a cattle feedlot. It serves not only to cut the industrial cattle farm's electric bill, but it also supplies shade to the cattle as they live out their peaceful lives. For agribusiness, the bonus of solar power modules to supply cooling shade to animals on a feedlot while also simultaneously generating electricity is an obvious win-win — and one that can easily apply wherever shade is needed on a farm. When there can be open air underneath, it also serves to cool the solar modules, which makes them more efficient as well. More
