As you may have already heard, California’s energy commission made history on May 9th when it unanimously adopted a measure making solar panels mandatory on all new homes starting Jan 1, 2020. This decision is historic making the golden state the first to implement such a measure. But, this measure poses a challenge to California homebuilders, your company will need to choose a solar provider sooner than expected Because SunStreet’s entire business was built to serve new home builders and their customers, and has completed more than 15,000 solar installations on new homes, we’ve decided to highlight three of the most critical things to consider when choosing a solar provider for your business.

Four Ways to Safeguard Solar Panels from Environmental Damage

Article | March 27, 2020

As one of the best renewable sources available, solar energy is recognized for its clean power and affordability. And like most equipment, solar panels and systems need regular maintenance to prevent damage and keep them running as efficiently as possible. If you have clients with businesses that utilize solar panels, the following can help them to prevent unnecessary environmental damage to their energy systems. Today’s solar panels are tested in different weather conditions to ensure they can withstand a reasonable level of bad weather. However, during a lightning storm, it’s often necessary to take additional steps to protect systems from damage.

What does Covid-19 mean for Renewable Energy?

Article | April 15, 2020

Covid-19. It’s everywhere, and it’s probably the reason that your food cupboards are unusually more stocked than usual, or the fact that you’re likely reading this blog from the confines of your own home, as opposed to at your office or during your daily commute. But, despite the impact to business, economies, daily life and public health, there’s one bittersweet development which we can all take away from the outbreak – and that’s the considerable reduction of global CO2 emissions, and a resurgence of hope that it is fully possible for us to slow the onset of climate change and preserve our planet for future generations.

Solar Power, Great For The Environment? Or Is It The Last Thing We Need?

Article | February 10, 2020

Solar power is an undeniably a green, renewable form of electricity generation - but many organisations with questionable motives (even here in New Zealand) are trying to persuade the public (and Government – hi lobbyists!) that solar power isn’t that environmentally friendly, and that it's even harmful. At the expense of bullish corporate profits, solar power is often thrown under the bus. This article lists the facts - putting an end to the negative spin on solar so often found in the media. When solar panels produce power, they do not; create any air pollution, use zero water, create carbon emissions, noise pollution, and they won’t disturb surrounding ecosystems. Solar power is a renewable energy source, the sun’s rays are infinite, fill your boots.

Artificial Intelligence in the energy sector: opportunities and challenges

Article | March 25, 2020

AI is certainly the talk about the hour nowadays. In high-tech industry, AI is the one with most potential. But before proceeding and discussing further on this exciting technology, we’d like to first understand what AI means-: As power is being generated from more volatile sources like solar and wind, the requirement is that power generation must react intelligently to consumption (and vice versa). With AI, we can evaluate, analyse and control participants connected to each other via these smart grids. With modern day emphasis on climate changes and increasing pressure to reduce CO2 emissions, we must find ways to have most of our power generated from renewable resources. The problem with renewable sources of energy are that they are unpredictable, which makes production of energy periodical and sometimes even chaotic. With renewable sources, there can be power outages or too much power generation which needs to be controlled. Smart storage, also known as Intelligent Energy Storage(IES) can effectively handle these disrupt changes in power supply.
