Clouds are not really the obstacle they appear to be. Many people think solar panels work best in sun-blasted regions with few or no clouds. That's not quite true. Solar panels produce energy by converting sunlight to direct current (DC) and then an inverter turns that into alternating current (AC), which is the type of power most houses run on. Cloudy days create an estimated power drop-off of about 10 to 25 percent from what you see on a sunny ...Mike "Tech Overlord" Colletteread more

This past Monday, January 18th 2021, we observed Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Known around the world as a prolific civil rights leader, public speaker, and community organizer, Dr. King led the United States down a path of equality and compassion that changed our history forever. But it is important to remember that not everyone was so supportive of his message. As so much of Dr. King’s career involved uncovering ugly truths about prejudice...Alex "Solar Girl" Steeleread more
If you’re reading this, you made it… Through the worst of winter! This coming Sunday, most of the United States will be springing forward in time to welcome in Daylight Saving Time! This ritual of setting our clocks forward by one hour began over 100 years ago, after World War One. The original meaning of Daylight Saving Time (DST) was to conserve fuel by reducing our dependence on electricity to light our homes during the colder, darker months...Alex "Solar Girl" Steeleread more
We’ve been optimistic about the industry for years now, but even the nay-sayers can’t ignore the progress solar has been making.
