Solar power ftw!
Solar power ftw!
Solar energy is becoming more prominent on the market, competing with its carbon-dioxide emitting cousin (a.k.a.– fossil-fueled energy).

Solar energy costs are already dropping faster than you can say “solar energy costs are dropping,” and along comes a new development that could accelerate the trend even more. The project, out of Sandia National Laboratories in partnership with the University of Colorado-Boulder, aims at working around the efficiency limitations of dye-sensitized solar cells.
According to a report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL), forecasts made in 2010 about the cost of utility-scale US solar energy are off by 59%. And I don't mean that solar costs 59% more than expected, I mean it costs 59% less! In just 4 years! Imagine the margin of error over 10-20-30 years or more!
Interesting to see who is leading solar power in terms of commercial installs.
Such a great packing list for world travel.
Great list of top 10 states for solar.
Very cool post with graphs.
Why utilities are afraid of the growth of solar power in the US
A new solar installation goes in every 4 minutes.
After more than 12 months outside the USA I have some answers: my wardrobe looks nearly identical to when I left. The surprising thing is how little I had to supplement the original travel kit I left with on September 7, 2013.
The Solar1 Monte Cup World Championship has been announced for the second week of July in 2015. A similar race was held this past summer by the Yacht Club de Monaco in Monte Carlo.
North Carolina’s recent renewable energy boom has been driven mostly by solar, according to a new report from The Pew Charitable Trusts. To be exact, the state saw its solar energy capacity grow by 335 MW in 2013 — making it the 3rd-fastest-growing state in the US with regard to renewable energy capacity.
Some cool stuff going on in New York these days.
California now on the same level as some Western European nations for solar power capacity.
The world is going solar. According to new data released by the Fraunhofer Institute, in the first half of 2014, renewable energy, like solar power, accounted for almost 31 percent of all electricity produced in Germany.
Predicting the arrival of solar energy for electricity that is as cheap as local electricity prices is actually harder than predicting the sunrise. But Union of Concerned Scientists’ (UCS) new solar infographic tells this exciting crossover point is right in front of millions of homeowners across the country.
