The 6 Biggest Myths About Solar Power Debunked

We are currently in an exciting transition from fossil fuel energy sources and grid power to clean energy technologies and off-grid power sources. Although clean, renewable energy technology plays an integral role in the green transition, the technology is still relatively unfamiliar to many. As a result, there is much misinformation in the solar power and clean technology market. Let’s examine some of the most common misconceptions about solar energy, look at where they come from and explore how they are misguided.

Why Grid Street Lighting is No Longer a Wise Investment

Traditional grid street lighting is becoming a less favourable choice for municipalities and businesses. Why? Well, the costs of transmission and distribution for grid power are consistently increasing, driving up the energy costs for street lighting systems. Transmission and distribution costs will continue to grow with ageing grid infrastructure and increased stress on the grid. The grid’s vulnerability to blackouts and the emissions it produces are also making municipalities hesitant. Off-grid street lighting is proving to be the more economical, reliable, and environmentally friendly option.

4 Reasons Why Battery State of Charge is Critical and Why Off-Grid Batteries are Difficult to Manage

Advanced energy storage technologies are essential building blocks for a renewable energy future. Battery management is crucial to the delivery of reliable, cost-effective off-grid power, as batteries can be very easily damaged even during normal operation, thereby reducing their lifespan and the effectiveness of the power system. That is why knowing a battery’s capacity and its precise state of charge are crucial features in protecting the health of a battery and extending the life of a mission-critical off-grid power system. However, when it comes to batteries designed to support heavy loads such as telecommunications applications, calculating the state of charge is complicated by many practical and theoretical obstacles. Still, it can have major benefits for the overall power system’s cost, longevity and reliability. So why is it essential for off-grid power? Let’s find out.

BLOG POST: 5 Ways That Clean Tech Can Improve Your Bottom Line

Investors are piling into clean tech with an upswing in investing that considers environmental, social, and governance, or ESG investing, as I recently discussed in my Forbes blog. But when it comes down to the implementation of clean tech in the power sector, we are still overcoming the misperception that cost and reliability is worse than on-grid power solutions. The truth is that power reliability and cost is equitable if not better with renewable off-grid solutions, which can have a positive impact on the bottom line now and in the future. Here are 5 ways that smart off-grid power can positively impact power needs and the bottom line.
