Off Grid solar is the ideal form of self-reliance. With solar and energy storage you don’t need to pay bills to a utility or buy an endless supply of fuel for your generator, you can harvest energy from the sky. By avoiding dirty fossil fuels, you’re also not contributing to climate change. We’ve been waiting for a silver bullet and it’s here.

RENEWABLE ENERGY: IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON PROJECT SPECIFIC INSURANCE

Article | March 16, 2020

We are certain that everyone involved in renewable energy projects are thinking about the impact Covid-19 will have on your projects being planned, built or operated. The following blog is not to be used as a full guideline, but rather an overview of our perspective on the situation. With the global Covid-19 escalation, it is likely that both the developers and the OEM’s are thinking “what impact will Covid-19 have on the completion of my project” and “can I still meet my PPA deadline?’ The first question to consider is whether a delay caused by a Force Majeure event insurable? The short answer is that no, a delay in this scenario would not be covered. Insurance is about Physical Damage to the subject matter insured, which is the Works. An outbreak of Covid-19 is not a Physical Damage event.

Why attracting new talent to the renewable energy industry matters now

Article | April 3, 2020

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.

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.
