Solar Charger Rv Solar Power Emerging Hot Trends

  1. 1. Solar Charger Rv – Emerging Hot Trends #2 Solar power prices collapsed in 2009 Solar power prices collapsed in 2009 Solar power prices collapsed last year. They dropped nearly 50 percent in 2009, and analysts predict prices could drop another 20 percent in 2010, helping the industry become cost-competitive with other energy resources but squeezing some companies out of business. The economic downturn and falling power demand in the United States and Europe have contributed to the price collapse, but the major cost driver has been the fluctuating supply of polysilicon, the primary raw material used to develop solar energy units. Polysilicon has gone from a major shortage to massive oversupply, and bank analysts have projected an oversupply of polysilicon until 2012 Thin-film PV solar cells built from a compound called cadmium telluride have a more cost-effective manufacturing process. That has helped companies to build at greater scale and drive down costs.….. excerpts By JOEL KIRKLAND of Climate Wire Published: January 8, 2010 Sunforce 50032 15 Watt Solar Battery Charger Solar Charger Rv – Solar Power Emerging Hot Trends © 2010
  2. 2. Solar energy investment increase to 8.2 million Morgan Solar, a solar energy start-up company in Toronto, has increased its first-round investment from the USD $4.7 million as announced in October 2009 to USD $8.2 million. The funds will be utilized for the development and commercial release of the company’s Sun Simba HCPV, a unique Concentrated Photovoltaic solar panel. The Sun Simba HCPV is a highly efficient and inexpensive solar panel used for distributed generation and utility scale solar farms.

  3. 3. Proposed Solar Farm Edison New Jersey A gigantic solar farm with about 8,500 panels to be erected on 5.7 acres in Edison is part of a $50 million investment statewide planned by Public Service Electric and Gas Co. (PSE&G) in renewable solar energy. PSE&G is seeking approval from local officials for the proposed project. The projects will generate many local jobs connected to engineering, design, construction and installation of the panels, the utility said. By LALITA ALOOR AMUTHAN • My Central Jersey • January 6, 2010 Former Polaroid Factory Now a Solar Panel Plant New Bedford, Mass., a shuttered plant that once rolled out Polaroid film is up and running again. Except this time, the plant isn't producing film -- it's making extremely thin flexible solar panels. Back in 2008, the factory got a second chance as Konarka Technologies Inc., converted the equipment to make what it calls "power plastic." According to NPR's "Morning Edition," the sheets can be used as fabric, say for a cell-phone- charging window in a purse or briefcase, or as an integrated window panel.

  4. 4. Sunforce 50044 60-Watt Solar Charging Kit- Solar Charger Rv Companies Merge to Make Solar Power more affordable! Three companies are teaming up to try make one alternative— solar power — more attractive; Vaugha Avacos Solar Energy, DuRock Allfacing International and Sanyo Canada are partnering to promote the union of two technologies that could make solar panels work better. Sanyo says its HIT panels generate 30 percent more electricity because they capture ambient and reflected light on the backside of the panel, as well as direct sunlight from the front.

  5. 5. combination with the highly reflective Tio-Coat, the panels are able to capture even more light. In addition, the Tio-Coating helps solve another problem for the panels. “Ironically, one of the downsides to solar technology in general is that (solar panels) tend not to perform as well in hotter situations,” says Daniel Caunter, enterprise solutions strategist at Sanyo Canada. But because the coating prevents the building from absorbing sunlight and radiating it as heat, the panels stay cooler. It’s still difficult to say exactly how much more electricity the HIT/Tio-Coat combination produces compared to other solar panels……..

  6. 6. Military shift to Solar Power Proposes to decrease Vulnerability On January 5, members of Ohio’s Air National Guard's 180th Fighter Wing joined Representative Marcy Kaptur (D., Toledo) to dedicate Phase IV of the unit’s massive, ground-mounted solar array currently rated at 1.2 megawatts. The solar farm, which will provide 37 percent of the electric needs of the base, is the largest of its kind at any Air National Guard station in the United States, and also the largest installed or projected solar installation in the state. The next largest is Dayton Power and Light’s proposed 1.1-megawatt array near its Yankee substation in Washington Township. Guardsmen have been installing the 16,000 thin-film panels since the fall of 2007. The panels are manufactured by Perrysburg, Ohio-based First Solar, and installed under the guidance of Walbridge, Ohio-based Rudolph/Libbe Inc., a general contractor. by Nate Lew Cooler Plant January 07, 2010.
