Top 25 Companies by Solar Capacity American businesses have gone solar at an unprecedented rate in the past few years. The list below shows the massive investment leading companies have made in solar and ranks businesses by their total on-site solar installed capacity, or the maximum power potential measured in megawatts. The 2013 rankings have expanded since the last edition of this report to include the Top 25 companies by capacity. While the list is made up of many of the same companies ranked last year, the new rankings show the growing solar portfolios of many of the country’s leading businesses and the continued development of the overall commercial market. The Top 25 companies have installed more than 445 MW of solar PV capacity across the country, up from about 300 MW last year.

This was for the month of September The high performance Tesla S, which went on sale in Europe in August, had a market share in Norway of 5.1 percent last month, pushing the conventionally-powered Volkswagen Golf into second place with 4.6 percent, according to the latest official figures. “There has been an enormous demand for this car, and it doesn’t seem to stop. We have a lot of customers on the waiting list right now,” said Joar Tenfjord, the head of Tesla’s dealership in Bergen, Norway’s second largest city. Electric cars have been especially popular in Norway because of generous subsidies, free parking, government-provided re-charging stations, the right to use express lanes on highways and exemptions from tolls.
INDUCTION CHARGER POWERS TESLA ROADSTER WIRELESSLY Fulton Innovation’s eCoupled device can charge an electric car without any plugs or cables. At the recently concluded CES 2011, Fulton Innovation displayed its eCoupled charging device that was able to wirelessly power a Tesla Roadster electric car. The vehicle’s underbody was fitted with an adapter and once the car is parked over an eCoupled-enabled induction pad, the device starts to wirelessly charge it, with a smartphone app monitoring its charging status. http://www.psfk.com/2011/01/induction-charger-powers-tesla-roadster-wirelessly.html
Over 50% of all energy used in Cape Town is spent on transportation – cars, buses, trains and taxis. Transport is the biggest producer of CO2 because vehicle emissions also cause air pollution.
