Hawaiian Electric submitted seven solar-plus-storage projects to its utility commission for review last Thursday, making it the second-largest announcement of its kind in the U.S.

The projects total over 260 megawatts of solar and one gigawatt of storage, with costs between $0.08 to $0.12 per kWh -- lower 😀 than that of fossil fuels in the state.

The projects are expected to be active in 2022 and follow even lower-cost solar-plus-storage projects announced on the U.S. mainland last year. Separately, AES Corporation completed what is now the world’s largest solar-plus-storage plant on Tuesday in Kauai, Hawaii. The project will help Hawaii move off fossil-fueled peaker plants by making renewable energy available when it’s most valuable.

How much do solar panels cost to install now?


By Sponsored Content | December 26, 2018

Over the last 5 years, solar prices have fallen significantly due to market competition and technological advancements. The average price for a residential solar system in the United States is now only $3.20 per watt. This makes a typical 6-kW system $19,200 before solar incentives but assuming you’re eligible for the 30% federal solar tax credit, the final cost of a 6-kW system would be $13,440.

How much will I save from installing a solar system?

Since most states offer a program called net metering you can usually eliminate between 75%-100% of your monthly electric bill. Each state and utility offer slightly different programs, for a free estimate on your solar savings with local incentives, click the link below.

Chinese tariffs cause wave of changes to solar inverter manufacturing

 
The Fronius manufacturing plant in Austria. Fronius

The Section 301 tariffs on Chinese inverters are forcing many companies to make big decisions, even though the expected jump from 10 to 25% tariffs set for Jan. 1, 2019 has been stalled for 90 days of negotiation.

Fenix International Powers The Entire Home With Pay-As-You-Go Solar Systems #CES2019

January 12th, 2019 by Kyle Field

SNIPPET:

Pay-as-you-go programs continue to revolutionize the world through solar lighting and cell phone charging systems that open up the opportunities that come with electricity, and Fenix International is leading that charge in Africa.


CleanTechnica sat down with Jit Bhattacharya, CTO of Fenix International at CES this week to talk about how pay-as-you-go solar systems have scaled up to power the entire home and how the acquisition by Engie has helped Fenix International take its business to the next level.

U.S. crystalline silicon technology startup Merlin Solar is ready for the traditional solar market

SNIPPET:

When exploring the expanding field of U.S. crystalline silicon solar panel manufacturers, Merlin Solar is often overlooked. Even though the innovative Silicon Valley company has over 50 worldwide patents and offers UL-certified products — including hurricane resistant ground-mount panels, adhesive Class A fire-rated rooftop panels and flexible panels for metal roofs — the ruggedness of these panels, along with their light weight and ease of installation, has lent Merlin to first focus on challenging and non-traditional solar applications like the transportation, portable and military markets. After being acquired by Filipino conglomerate Ayala Corporation last year, Merlin Solar now has the scale to bring its IP-protected grid interconnection technology of silicon cells to traditional solar markets.

A cold, sunny environment is the optimal operating condition for solar panels. Counterintuitively, it’s heat that actually reduces solar efficiency. Lab tests have shown that panels start to lose efficiency above 77ºF.

News flash: Solar works in cold weather

By Manish Nayar, CEO, OYA Solar

The polar vortex blew some frigidly cold weather into the U.S. last week. It also brought out some confused comments about solar in cold weather like this one:
