How beneficial are solar panels on parking lots?

Parking lots are one nice location to have solar panels. Why? You have vacant space that is not used for anything, your cars and other vehicles get better shade (if there was none earlier) and well, you generate some electricity as a bonus! Thus, solar panels on industrial and commercial parking lots have seen significant […]

Solar panels over elevated structures – an additional benefit from a rooftop solar power plant

Not everyone would be happy with solar panels covering all their rooftop without room to move. For those houses and commercial buildings that can actually utilize their rooftop for something, cluttering it with row after row of solar panels is not a great idea. But these guys can still have their cake and eat it […]

Can rooftop solar plants too deploy trackers like the ground-mounted solar farms?

The use of trackers can significantly enhance overall generation from a solar PV power plant. There is no argument about this. Trackers as a result are becoming quite common across a number of solar farms worldwide. A question hence naturally arises – can these trackers be used for rooftop solar power plants as well, to […]

Will solar with battery storage disrupt the solar power market?

Depending on who you are, you either love battery storage or you hate it. The facts are as follows: Storing solar power in batteries is not really a super efficient way of using solar power – as this process ends up wasting about 30% of the solar power generated! At the same time, without batteries […]

What are hybrid solar inverters and how do they benefit rooftop solar power plants?

For all its environmental and other sustainability benefits, rooftop solar suffers from one big problem – it is not a 24×7, reliable source of electricity. Unless of course you consider using a battery along with the solar panels; or using a diesel generator in conjunction with the solar panels. If you are going for any […]

Can solar panels add to the aesthetics of a building?

Looking at solar panels on rooftops used to be my day job for a while. Now, I have to admit that I never viewed those rooftop solar panels as beautiful during that time. Because, well, they were not. Solar panels on rooftops looked ok at best, and in many circumstances, quite clumsy. Now, this blog […]
