Massachusetts is already a leader in the clean energy sector! Here are some quick facts from the MassCEC:
Solar technology has come a long way since solar panels first hit the market in 1959 with Hoffman electric’s first 10% efficient panel. Now there are countless brands (here are the ones that we most often install) on the market that are double as efficient!
Organic solar cells are a type of solar cell which use a process similar to photosynthesis in plants to produce solar energy. But instead of converting sunlight to glucose, these solar cells convert sunlight into solar energy.
Now that cooler weather has officially set in here in Massachusetts, you may be wondering – what happens to my solar panels in the fall?
It is one of the newest innovations in solar technology! Floating solar is essentially putting solar panels on any man-made body of water.
Why choose a ground mount? Sometimes, a roof just isn’t fit for solar panels. When the roof is too flat or too shaded, it is more difficult to take advantage of the benefits of solar power.
The goal of community solar is to provide clean energy to places that cannot directly install solar panels on the roof.
In short – yes! Studies have shown that solar panels and energy efficient homes have higher resale values than conventional homes.
