8 Reasons Why UK Residents Should Consider Solar Panels

September 7, 2018

It's good for the environment - Getting more of your energy from solar panels means less use of coal and other fossil fuels. UK householders, private landowners, and "Registered Providers of Social Housing" can earn up to E3.390 per year when they switch to solar power. Because of the competition in the solar energy field, solar panels are inexpensive to buy. As part of the UK "Green Deal," Pensioners are entitled to free installation of solar panels.

Infographic: A New Global Wind Energy Atlas

Infographic | May 13, 2021

To maximize the return of investment, the design of a wind turbine is determined on the 50-year return period of sustained wind speed. Stable and consistent wind speed is one of the major determining factors when considering turbine design and wind turbine farm placement. Cornell researchers Sara C. Pryor, professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, and Rebecca J. Barthelmie, professor in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, recently released a new global wind atlas—a digital compendium of sites around the world with extreme wind speeds.
