Renewable energy is taking over the world. With prices falling despite domestic headwinds and the clear advantage of not relying on volatile fuel prices, they’re beating out the competition on price alone. On top of that, many consumers are motivated to support clean energy because they think it’s the right thing to do: it reduces the disruption to our climate systems and makes for the cleaner, healthier air. Despite its clear advantages over traditional, dirty forms of energy, though, Solstice offers customers a discount to go solar.

More Solar Ready To Help Power Pumping For SA Water

Article | April 29, 2021

SA Water’s electricity supply is about to become greener and cheaper again with the addition of another major solar power system, and an even bigger installation to soon follow. The utility says more 7,300 solar panels installed at the second pump station on its pipeline between Swan Reach and Stockwell are now connected and ready to go. “The Swan Reach to Stockwell Pipeline spans across more than 50 kilometres inland from the mighty Murray across to the northern Barossa area, and therefore requires significant energy to pump clean, safe drinking water across such large distances,” said SA Water’s Nicola Murphy While the total capacity of this new solar farm wasn’t provided, Ms. Murphy said it will generate approximately 5,224 megawatt hours of clean, green energy annually. There’s more solar energy to come for this section of pipeline, with a further 16,000 panels currently being connected at the first pump station.

ClearVue Solar Glass Greenhouse Officially Opened

Article | April 20, 2021

A high-tech greenhouse comprised mainly of solar glass generating electricity to help run it was officially opened yesterday in Western Australia. ClearVue Technologies Limited’s solar glass involves a nanoparticle interlayer and spectral-selective coating on the rear external surface that enables 70% of natural light to pass through while redirecting infrared and UV light converted to infrared to the edge where it is harvested by solar cells. ClearVue says each 1m2 of its window product is currently rated to generate 30 watts-peak of electric power, but also mentions a new-generation product with the proven ability to generate 40 watts peak per m2 to be available sometime this year.

Is solar or wind a better way to power your home?

Article | February 25, 2020

A growing number of homeowners in the United States are turning to renewable energy sources to provide power for their homes. Solar power systems only need sunlight to power your home and vehicle, recharge large battery systems, and still allow you to sell extra energy to your utility company. Wind power can perform the same functions by producing energy from wind-powered turbines. Both depend on often volatile forces of nature, but overall, solar panels provide more consistent energy. Solar panels don't include moving components, as wind production units do. These and other differences play important roles in deciding which renewable energy option is best for you.

How Solar Helps the Environment

Article | February 25, 2020

Despite advances in technology, the world is still heavily dependent on fossil fuels like coal and oil for energy production. Our lifestyles require a lot of electricity running through our homes, but fossil fuels are finite and will eventually run out. Sunshine, on the other hand, is plentiful and will not run out anytime soon. We can make the decision today to switch to a cleaner and smarter energy solution by using solar panels to power our homes. Here are some of the top ways solar energy is better for the environment.
