Solar Power Offers the Greatest Opportunity to Rid Ourselves of Fossil Dependence.

The demand for alternative energy sources has skyrocketed in a world with ever-rising energy needs and ever-diminishing nonrenewable energy sources. In contrast to the environmental damages caused by the extraction and burning of dwindling fossil fuels, alternative energy sources promise renewable and often inexhaustible energy with little to no lasting environmental damage. Today, solar power […] Read more

5 Cutting-Edge Solar Cell Technologies

As solar energy becomes a popular way to meet power needs, more efficient ways of harnessing the sun’s energy are being developed for solar photovoltaics (PVs). Solar cells capture energy in the sunlight and transform it into electricity for residential, business and industrial use. Because solar energy is clean, free, renewable and indigenous, it is […] Read more

Solar Technology is Advancing Faster Than Expected

Like most technologies nowadays, solar energy technology is advancing at a rapid rate. A recent report published by PV magazine projects solar to surpass gas and 2X Nuclear power by 2016. While solar energy has the potential to transform the energy sector, many consumers (even those who currently rely on solar energy) are unaware of […] Read more

Grid-Tied Solar; The NET Positive and Negative

The majority of “green homes” which use renewable energy are not off-grid, independent propositions. Like traditional homes, they are attached to the grid and have utility providers. The difference is that they try to reach a net-zero or net-positive situation. A net-zero home is one in which the net cost or net power use is […] Read more
