Different Types of Solar Power Systems

Different Types of Solar Power Systems As electricity consumption and costs continue to rise, homeowners and businesses are increasingly turning to solar energy to generate electricity. In order to install solar power systems, however, all options should be considered...

Solar Panel Fence

With solar panels becoming more and more affordable, an increasing number of individuals are considering utilizing them as a permanent fence. Combining solar power production with property fencing not only provides numerous aesthetic possibilities. It also also opens up a new perspective for the use of solar power.

Residential Solar Carports

Residential solar carports are a great alternative for homeowners who can’t install a solar power system on their rooftop. They are more than just a car shelter with a PV system, though. PV carports are highly practical and provide many opportunites to reduce carbon footprint and energy costs at the same time.

EV Smart Charging Solutions – Advantages & Requirements

EV smart charging is a method to optimize energy consumption when charging EVs. It ensures that a car is charged preferably when electricity demand is low. This not only saves money for EV drivers, it also eases the burden on the grid by naturally reducing demand.

Solar Panel Cost – Is Solar Power Worth It?

Solar Panel Cost - Is Solar Power Worth It?There is no doubt that solar power saves money on energy costs and can even make a profit in the long term. However, the solar panel cost is still quite high and there are a few factors to consider before installing a solar...

Electric Car Mileage & Real World Consumption

Electric car mileage is one of the most important factors when buying an EV. The capacity to travel long distances without recharging is crucial for electric mobility to become economically feasible, because EV charging infrastructure is far from being fully developed. Therefore, it becomes all the more important to know how far you can travel with an EV before having to recharge.

Building Integrated Photovoltaics & Sustainable Architecture

Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) are photovoltaic materials that can replace conventional building materials such as windows or facades. They are an important element in sustainable city building projects as a primary or secondary source of electrical power.

How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Car?

Charging speed is one of the major impediments for drivers to switch from combustion engines to electric ones. Rapid charging stations can reduce charging times to 30 minutes, but they are still relatively expensive and low in supply. Therefore, knowing how long you have to wait for a full recharge is very useful in planning your car routes.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Solar Energy

The sun provides enough energy in one hour to meet the entire global energy demand for a year. Without a doubt, the sun is the strongest renewable energy source available to man. However, every step in the quest for energy transition needs to be planned wisely. To give you clearer picture of what role solar power plays, we describe some advantages and disadvantages of solar energy.

Why Electric Mobility Needs Rapid Charging Solutions

AC fast charging, DC rapid charging, DC ultra-quick charging. The realm of fast chargers comprises a large variety of EV charging stations. Most EVs are compatible with more than one charging type. Since charging speed is determined by a variety of factors, rapid chargers are important to even out these differences.

Time of Use Tariff – Introduction & Overview

Time of Use Tariff – Introduction & Overview

TOU tariffs are a powerful tool on the path to energy transition and an effective instrument to balance electricity demand. As power consumed during off-peak hours is much cheaper, consumers pay much lower rates for electricity if they are willing to change their energy consumption habits.

Solar Panel Carport Roof

Solar Panel Carport Roof

Converting carport roofs into solar canopies is one of the most obvious decisions of this decade. Most importantly, installing a solar panel carport roof provides extra space for PV panels to your property in addition to the main roof. However, the benefits of a solar carport go far beyond a profitable PV system.

Energy Arbitrage – Energy Efficiency for Everyone

Energy Arbitrage – Energy Efficiency for Everyone

Even without solar power systems, homeowners can achieve energy independence with battery storage. Until now, homeowners rarely had the opportunity to make use of energy arbitrage – buying cheap and selling expensive. However, with energy storage prices falling, energy arbitrage has become feasible for private homeowners.
