Chandlers Roofing, one of America's leading roofing companies, is the first in Los Angeles to offer the new, award-winning Timberline Solar roof. GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company and a leading provider of solar roofing in North America, recently launched Timberline Solar to deliver the first true solar roof to market. Timberline Solar incorporates roofing materials into a clean energy-generating system, resulting in a durable, attractive roof that produces energy. The solar roof is now available to residents in the Greater Los Angeles region.

"We're honored to be the first in Los Angeles to introduce the very best solar roofing technology available today," said Chandler's Roofing partner and president, Trevor Leeds.

Summit Ridge Energy Holds Ribbon Cutting for Nation's Largest Rooftop Community Solar Array

Summit Ridge Energy | December 01, 2021

Summit Ridge Energy held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate completion of the nation's largest rooftop community solar project. The 9.2 MW solar project, operated by SRE and jointly owned with Annapolis-based climate investment firm Hannon Armstrong, is located in Carroll County, Maryland on a large commercial warehouse owned by STAG Industrial. Black Bear Energy facilitated the partnership between SRE and STAG while Powerflex provided engineering, procurement and construction services for the project. Once operational, the community solar project will provide monthly energy savings to approximately 1,300 residential and small commercial customers located across the state. This is a marquee project for Summit Ridge, our capital partners at Hannon Armstrong and the entire community solar industry. Leveraging 23 acres of largely unused roof space to generate energy savings for thousands of Marylanders is precisely the direction our nation's energy generation strategy needs to head." Steve Raeder, CEO, Summit Ridge "This solar project resulting from the partnership of Summit Ridge Energy and STAG Industrial is an excellent example in alignment with Governor Hogan's roadmap of deploying renewable energy on available rooftop or brownfield space," said Dr. Mary Beth Tung, Director of the Maryland Energy Administration. "Clean energy from this installation will benefit the local economy and create opportunities for a wide variety of organizations and residents." SRE's rooftop community solar portfolio across the state has grown to over 75 MW's, enough to power nearly 11,000 homes. Nearly one-third of the projects will serve low-to-moderate income ("LMI") customers, highlighting the industry's unique ability to provide renewable energy savings to Americans of all socioeconomic backgrounds. The recent expansion of Maryland's Community Solar Pilot Program is evidence of community solar's rapid growth within the broader renewable energy space, as is Department of Energy's October announcement of a National Community Solar Partnership target of 26 GW by 2025, enough to power the equivalent of five million homes and create $1 billion in annual energy savings. About Summit Ridge Energy Summit Ridge Energy is the country's leading owner-operator of community solar assets. Through dedicated funding platforms, the team acquires pre-operational projects within the rapidly growing solar energy and battery storage sectors.

Progress Solar Solutions Announces New Lower Cost Mobile Solar Light Tower Model

Progress Solar Solutions | November 08, 2021

Progress Solar Solutions announces a new reduced cost model of portable solar light towers. Responding to historic increases in the price of steel, Progress Solar has reduced the amount of steel in the SLT line by 1/3 to reduce the cost of the new SLT 700. Combined with our Solar/Wind and Solar/Hybrid light tower lines this gives Progress Solar the most diverse portfolio of mobile solar light towers in the industry. Progress Solar units are made in the U.S.A. and routinely operate independent of diesel, gas or the electric grid eliminating the use of fossil fuels or generation of carbon emissions. Progress Solar units are specifically designed for extremely demanding applications that need to be operational for lighting-on-demand year-round. The large battery banks store numerous nights of lighting to allow use during cloudy days or inclement weather.

Equipped with LED Lights with over 50K lumens of light that are vibration and shatter resistant, and designed to provide up to 5x longer run time between bulb changes than metal halide lights. The lights can be turned on/off automatically from a user-programmable timer, manually, or by photocell (darkness sensor). The system is on a portable trailer customized for maximum functionality and convenience and can be easily towed to its destination. "The new SLT series is a direct result of listening to our clients with the most challenging and flexible lighting applications like Construction, Oil & Gas, Mining, Military, Public Utilities and Disaster Recovery."

For the 12-year PPA with BTG, Canadian Solar will flexibly sun based energy from a 170 MWp bunch of ventures situated in the State of Minas Gerais. The ventures will begin development in 2021 and are relied upon to accomplish business activity before the finish of 2022. BTG is one of the principle speculation banks in Latin America and runs one of the biggest energy exchanging organizations Brazil. Furnas will buy sun powered energy from two Canadian Solar ventures through a 15-year PPA. Canadian Solar will create and manufacture both Furnas ventures totalling 692 MWp. One of them, will be situated in the State of Ceará and will have a limit of 260 MWp. The subsequent undertaking is situated in the State of Piuaí and will have a limit of 432 MWp.
