Map showing the schools across the nation that have gone solar
A new briefing released from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) documents continued installed price declines in U.S. photovoltaic installations. The authors find price declines of 6-14% from 2011 to 2012, and 6-7% per year since 1998.
As of early 2013, there are more than 130 megawatts (MW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) energy systems powering Navy, Army and Air Force bases in at least 31 states and the District of Columbia. See what states have the most solar installed on our interactive map.
To address the issue of the small up-front cost, solar integrators have developed a number of financing options for their customers.
Solar dehumidification uses solar generated heat to power a dehumidifier to remove the humidity from indoor air. This reduces the amount of grid-supplied electricity needed for air conditioning.
Solar heating and cooling is a clean, reliable and cost-effective technology that is reducing utility bills for thousands of homes and businesses. Today, Americans across the country are at work manufacturing and installing systems that significantly reduce our dependence on imported fuels. We need smart policies to expand this fast-growing job-producing sector.
