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.
Solar water heating 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 these systems that significantly reduce our dependence on imported fuels. We need smart policies to expand this fast-growing, job-producing sector.
Solar heating and cooling technologies collect the thermal energy from the sun and use this heat to provide hot water, space heating, cooling and pool heating for residential, commercial and industrial applications. These technologies displace the need to use electricity or natural gas.
WASHINGTON D.C. -- GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association® (SEIA®) today released the U.S. Solar Market Insight: Third Quarter 2012. The report finds that the U.S. solar photovoltaics (PV) market installed 684 megawatts (MW) in the third quarter (Q3) of 2012, representing 44 percent growth over the same period last year. This quarter marked the third largest on record for the U.S.
SEIA and ASTM International hosts a webinar for the Solar Heating and Cooling industry stakeholders on August 9, 2012. The webinar provides an overview of the development of product standards in solar heating and cooling, specifically the heat-metering standard, and information on involvement.
Today, Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley signed into law the Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard for Solar Energy and Solar Water Heating Systems bill (Senate Bill 791 and House Bill 1187), which accelerates the target date for achieving the state's renewable portfolio standard two-percent solar carve-out by two years and ensures the industry maintains positive, year over year job growth.
