There is no doubt that the Trump Administration’s tariffs on solar modules slowed procurement of solar in the United States, with front-of-the-meter utility photovoltaics (PV) taking the biggest hit. Through the second half of 2017, as the

Permitting and inspections are notoriously tedious tasks. In the rooftop solar industry, they’re also very costly — when industry members say they don’t need to be. To fix the issue, the Solar Energy Industries Association

Solaria Corporation, a global provider of next-generation, high efficiency solar modules announces that they will make their products available in a single, unified system, assuring efficiency, performance, and aesthetics with Quick Mount PV, manufa

SPI 2018: Solar panel ranges expanding as high-efficiency takes control
At Solar Power International 2018 in Anaheim, numerous PV module manufacturers are continuing to roll-out a wider range of panels that embrace new technologies such as bifacial and half-cut cells as well as increased performance from existing produc

The various technologies presented herein relate to providing prognosis and health management (PHM) of a photovoltaic (PV) system. A PV PHM system can eliminate long-standing issues associated with detecting performance reduction in PV systems. The

A concentrated solar power (CSP) system includes channels arranged to convey a flowing solids medium descending under gravity. The channels form a light-absorbing surface configured to absorb solar flux from a heliostat field. The channels may be in

An exemplary method for installing at an installation site a photovoltaic module including a panel and support legs includes disposing the photovoltaic module over a support surface such that the support legs are in a stowed position; lifting the ph

Three or more photovoltaic cell units connected in series include a unit holding a voltage between output terminals, a first voltage holding unit group having a voltage holding unit holding a voltage between an anode-side terminal and a cathode-side

A smart junction box for a photovoltaic solar power module, and related method of operation. The junction box includes a plurality of active bypass circuits for protecting the solar cells from reverse bias, a novel power supply circuit in several em

A direct current (DC) power combiner operable to interconnect multiple interconnected photovoltaic strings is disclosed. The DC power combiner may include a device adapted for disconnecting at least one photovoltaic string from the multiple intercon
