Energy storage has had a lot of press, lately. Affordable home battery backup options with great efficiency are finally on the market and people are looking to buy them. But batteries still have a ways to go until they achieve peak energy storage.
Move aside Los Angeles and San Diego--St. Petersburg is the first city in Florida to commit to making the transition to 100 percent renewable energy.
It’s accurate to say that Elon Musk and Tesla like being in the spotlight. They certainly deserve it with the range of products they have to offer. Powerwall 2.0, anyone? But now they’ve gone and announced something even cooler: Solar roofs.
This year’s election came with a lot of ups and downs. Of course, a big win for the solar industry happened when the sham solar Amendment 1 didn’t get enough votes to pass. Trump’s win for Presidency, meanwhile, brought consternation to a lot of people, including clean energy companies.Read More
It seems like it was just yesterday when Tesla came out with the Powerwall Home Battery. Wall-mounted, sleek, and smooth, this clean and aesthetic piece of technology gained a lot of press. Since the battery has been out, however, new designs and modifications have been made to it. The result? The Tesla Powerwall 2.0.Read More
The UK’s Gloucester Cathedral is going solar! Over 1,000 years old, the historic building has recently installed 150 solar panels in an effort to cut its carbon footprint. While many are celebrating the marriage between historic buildings and cutting-edge clean energy, others wonder if going solar could affect the architectural conservation of this (and other) monumental buildings.

We’ve talked about Perovskite Solar Cells before and we need to talk about them again.
In previous designs, researchers have used several elements when creating different forms of perovskite, a photovoltaic crystalline structure that’s thinner, more flexible, easier (and cheaper!) to manufacture than silicon crystals. But a new study has recently come out in the Oct. 21 edition of Science using very inexpensive and available materials to create the perovskite solar cell.Read More
