Carbon dioxide might be getting close to the infamous 400 parts per million (ppm) but here at Mosaic we’re finding hope in what we’re calling the 800 investors per million. That’s the number of people who have invested in our largest solar project ever, a 487 kW installation on New Jersey’s famous Wildwoods boardwalk. These [...]
With solar prices dropping in the U.S. and around the world, John Farrell noticed that the German solar boom was not flagging despite the slow, steady reduction in its subsidy. “The trajectory looked very good for solar to be something that would work, not only from a distributed energy and ownership standpoint, but it could [...]
San Francisco’s South Bay- Many of the world’s phattest (I’m including East Bay here) tech corporations & most intriguing startups are right here. One third of all venture capital investors in the US come here to prospect, if Wikipedia is to be trusted on such stats. First the Gold Rush, now the Cash Rush…or should [...]
At the beginning of August 2012, the world’s biggest power outage hit India leaving 600 million people without electricity. India’s burgeoning electrical grid failed to meet the extreme demands of its growing economy. They simply did not have enough capacity to meet the high demand of electricity in cities. The power outage threw the urban [...]
It’s a bright week for the solar industry when two major retail chains announce their support of solar energy initiatives, so much so that they’re winning awards and setting new solar records! The international home products company IKEA recently reported its fourth solar PV installation in just one week, more than the store has ever achieved [...]
The City University of New York (CUNY) and its partners this evening unveiled the multi-pronged Solar Market Analytics, Roadmapping, and Tracking NY (SMART NY) project to make it easier for Big Apple denizens to put solar on their rooftops. Currently the application process alone can take up to a year to complete, so the SMART [...]
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory has just launched a website with an application designed to map the US potential energy sources called RE Atlas. Dan Getman, the lead developer for the project calls RE Atlas “an excellent tool for policymakers, planners, energy developers, and others who need to better understand the renewable resources available in [...]
With the help of a $180,000 federal grant, the Denver RegionalCouncil of Governments has expanded the use of the Denver Regional Solar Map — a tool originally intended for approximately 2,000 commercialproperty owners in Denver to figure out how much solar energy they canharvest on their roofs. The map has been expanded to include an [...]
TheSolar Thermal Consortium has introduced a road map designed toestablish New York as a national leader in solar heat and coolingtechnologies. Developed over the past six months by more than 130 industrial, academic and governmental representatives, the SolarThermal Roadmap creates a path to move New York state toward 2,000 MW of solar thermal capacity – [...]
In an attempt to create a bird’s-eye view solar map of New York City, City University of New York representativesand city officials last month joined forces to fly a laser-equippedairplane over the Big Apple. The joint effort was aided by Sanborn, a Colorado-based mapping firm. The crew collected data needed to pinpoint prime areas for solarinstallations. The [...]
I’ve reported on several different green mapping tools recently (here and here). But I didn’t connect the dots, so to speak, until reading a story in SustainableBusinessabout a “First-of-its-Kind” map released today. The piece describes anew online visual tool showing the location of some 2,200 greenbusinesses throughout the Golden State. It goes further than that, [...]
East Berkeley, May 1954 The modern age of solar power began inEast Berkeley in May, 1954 (my birth month and year) with thedevelopment of the silicon solar cell. By East Berkeley, I am, ofcourse, referring to Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, then home of thelegendary Bell Labs, where so many technological inventions of that erawere born. [...]
