I think the most startling thing is that just 1 hour of solar energy in the Sahara and Mohave Deserts generated is equal to 1 year of power for the global population.
Warmer countries in particular have an opportunity to effectively utilize the power of solar energy. it is interesting that Germany is the best performer while not being a country with a great amount of solar energy.
Now as of late OnForce Solar signed a big deal with Woodstock, New York for solar power for the community. Now that’s a show or concert waiting to happen.
SunPower installed 3.6 megawatts of systems in the Oakland School District in California. This includes 16 schools, using SunPower solar panels. The systems include rooftop solar arrays and solar shade structures in school parking lots, which take advantage of underutilized space and provide needed shade.,
“Oakland Unified School District can rely on its SunPower solar systems to deliver guaranteed performance for the next 25 years or more,” said Howard Wenger, SunPower president, regions.
“SunPower works with school districts across California to reduce operating costs and repurpose the savings to the classroom. It is extremely rewarding to partner with our public schools to deliver needed savings, while inspiring teachers and students with the great power and potential of the sun.”
