A solar inverter is a vital component in the solar electric power system, and understanding how it works can help you choose what products are best for your home or business.
More than 10,600 megawatts of solar power were installed last year in the United States, and SunHarvest Solar has been recognized by Solar Power World for its contributions to the industry. SunHarvest Solar has been included on the 2018 list of the Top 500 Solar Contractors in the country.
With the sun having been around longer than humans, it's only natural that our history with solar began long ago. Humans have been using the sun for energy and other tasks since the beginning of civilization. From heating their homes to heating up water, ancient civilizations saw the potential to harness the sun's energy for everyday uses early on.
World Nature Conservation Day is an opportunity to celebrate the precious resources our planet provides for us. This day highlights the need to expand conservation efforts, and honor those already in place. Home to many unique and brilliant places, sunny Arizona shines in many areas of conserving our pristine wilderness. With so many great areas to explore, it is vital that Arizona as a whole takes action in protecting and preserving our environment as much as possible. Today, we’re celebrating some of the great efforts to conserve our beautiful wilderness and precious resources.
Home to the “Valley of the Sun” and part of the country’s sunbelt, Arizona is basking in sunshine for most of the year. Ranked by many sources as one of the top ten sunniest places in the world, it is clear why Arizona is a great place for solar energy production. Our physical climate is perfect for a blossoming epicenter of solar power, but our political climate often holds us back from our full potential.
Going solar is great! But have you ever wondered how solar power works?
In recent news, the Central Arizona Project (CAP) made a huge commitment to the solar industry by signing a twenty-year Power Purchase Agreement with solar company AZ Solar 1. This will be documented as the lowest price for solar in the United States. Connecting Arizona’s most precious resource, water, with its most abundant resource, the sun, is an important step toward a clean energy future for Arizona.
The solar market has faced a variety of obstacles under the new administration. Earlier this year, tariffs were imposed on the industry that many were sure would threaten its growth. Though the tariffs introduced a few road bumps to the market, the solar industry is still going strong and is set to soar in many areas, including production and jobs. Becoming a prevalent energy source has been an upward battle for the solar industry, but it is nonetheless surpassing many other forms of energy production and becoming a major component of global energy industries
The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) plays an important role in our everyday lives. The commission regulates utilities (like water, electric, and gas), which means the decisions they make have a huge impact on everything from how much you pay for electricity each month, to the kinds of energy used to produce this electricity. Arizona is one of a handful of states that elects our corporation commission, which provides us the opportunity to elect candidates who are dedicated to a brighter, greener, and more resilient future for energy in our state.
With temperatures rising and records being set early in May, Arizona is heating up quickly. Many people suffer from heat-related illness during our blistering summers, and this time of year can be especially threatening for our most vulnerable Arizonans.
