Solar Panel Direction, Orientation and Tilt Factors

Article | May 25, 2021

For anyone who has owned solar panels in the past, or even many considering solar power installation in the near future, it’s generally understood that direction is important in this field. Specifically, the ability of solar panels to point south, where they will receive the maximum possible sunlight and therefore create the maximum amount of energy, is vital for many solar panel installations – but it’s important to realize that the simple direction of the panels is not the only important variable here. At Intermountain Wind & Solar, we’re happy to offer both commercial and residential solar panel installation services, including the utilization of the Tesla Powerwall battery backup. We assist our clients with every part of solar panel installation, including important directional and related themes that will play a role in how much sunlight your panels are able to soak up. Today we’ll focus on some of the important variables here, including why south-facing panels are the optimal approach plus several other basic factors to keep in mind when it comes to maximizing panel positioning and direction.

The Digital Transformation of Wind Energy

Article | May 25, 2021

Transformation and how it is changing the world around us at an accelerated pace. We started the conversation with highlights on The Digital Transformation of Smart Facilities and The Digital Transformation of Smart Process Industries and examined the impact of digital transformation being seen in both the Foodservice and Process Industries. In the final installment our new video series, which features the Presidents of each mCloud line of business, we chat with Dave Weinerth (President, Smart Energy) on how digital transformation is impacting the wind industry. The wind industry, in regards to how they see digital transformation is really interesting. Wind turbines are in hard environments, they’re complex machines that spin-off a lot of data into hundreds of different channels and operators are just now getting a chance to delve into what can be done with that data with some of the tools that are available in the cloud, through artificial intelligence and additional sensors that they may want to put onto their machines to assess different aspects of performance.

The Key to Unlocking 100% Renewables

Article | May 25, 2021

The 100 percent renewable energy future doesn’t start with a country, state or region. It starts with a city. One power plant in a city, in fact. In Glendale, California. Glendale is a city of 200,000 people just north of Los Angeles. And in 2014, Glendale was in a tricky spot. The city’s natural-gas plant was old. The City Council faced a decision that would impact the municipality for decades to come: revamp the 252-megawatt gas plant or find local alternatives?

Why attracting new talent to the renewable energy industry matters now

Article | May 25, 2021

With a global pandemic in full swing, climate change is no longer the main emergency hitting the news. As countries all over world have introduced social distancing and isolation restrictions to limit the spread of the virus, carbon emissions have dropped as non-essential sectors have ceased their usual activities and travel has reduced as people stay at home. One estimate indicates that greenhouse gas emissions in Europe will drop by a staggering 24.4% this year, which equates to 388.8 million tons less carbon. We have seen a global drop in carbon emissions before following the most recent major financial crisis, however we must not forget that this was quickly followed by a 6% increase in global emissions in 2010.
