Lets face it: taxes are confusing. When that certain time of year rolls around, feelings of apprehension and dread have a tendency to appear. Perplexing language, strange looking forms and a constantly changing tax code can leave one utterly bewildered. If you received a tax credit last year for installing some energy efficient windows or a […]
One of New Jersey’s leading turnkey solar developers believes EPOX-Z NRG™ is the best cool roof coating for solar companies. NORWELL, MA – After working with Boston coatings manufacturer EPOX-Z Corporation to prepare a major university’s rooftops for solar panel installation, one of New Jersey’s largest and most respected solar companies believes EPOX-Z NRG™ […]
The US federal government cut billions of dollars that used to fund the research and development of solar power technology but reports show that investments in renewable energy around the world increased by up to 32 percent to $211 billion.
Solar power projects are going to rise in Georgia and Alabama. Georgia Power just got the approval from state regulators while Alabama Power is presently doing a research project regarding solar power.
Researchers from the Universities of Sheffield and Cambridge discovered a technology that can revolutionize solar cells, which can lead to more affordable solar power installations in the future.
General Electric is expecting solar power to be cheaper than energy generated from fossil fuel and nuclear reactors. GE attributes the drop in the price of solar power generation to innovations in the industry.
An important breakthrough has been made in solar power technology. A University of Missouri engineer has developed a flexible solar power sheet that can capture up to 95 percent of sunlight. This is way more than the average 20 percent that present solar panels can achieve.
A scientist from the Washington University in St. Louis wrote an article that was published in the May 13 issue of Science that compared the efficiency of photosynthesis and solar cells.
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology discovered a method to improve the power efficiency of solar cell with the help of viruses that are designed to work at microscopic level. In a typical setup, sunlight hits a light harvesting material that would cause a release of electrons that can be harnessed to generate electric […]
A team of researchers from the University of Michigan discovered a magnetic effect of light that could probably be utilized in the future to generate solar power. This breakthrough can mean the extinction of solar cells.
