The falling cost of solar has made renewable energy accessible to more people than ever before and has resulted in an exponential increase in solar adoption. As such, end-of-life management is important for all PV technologies to ensure clean energy solutions are a sustainable component of the energy economy for future generations.Keep Reading
There are a number of environmental factors related to the construction and maintenance of utility-scale solar power plants, including water use, habitat conservation, and land use.
Deploying more solar energy will sharply reduce the carbon, sulfur and mercury pollution that come from burning fossil fuels, saving approximately 60,000 American lives each year.
When energy and climate analysts look back on the 2020s, they will see a transformed energy landscape dominated by new solar energy generation, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) said in recognition of the start of the Solar+ Decade.
Over the last ten years, solar grew from niche technology to a dominant source of new energy that fuels our economy.
Today, dozens of solar energy supporters from across the country gathered at the headquarters of the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) to rally for an end to solar tariffs. Clad in yellow scarves and holding sun balloons, solar workers called on the USITC to grant relief from the harmful solar tariffs.
