PVinsights: Solar Down As Selloff Escalates

Alternative Energy - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 08:42
Polysilicon prices declined this week, falling back from a one-week rise as depressed downstream put the prices on track for correction by month-end. Both buyers from multi- and mono-crystalline wafers were pressurized from the downstream and turned more cautious on polysilicon procurement in order to prevent from the risk of high-price inventories. Since the effect of environmental inspection and annual maintenance in China gradually weakened, the tight supply no longer supported the polysilicon prices amid waning demand and weakening RMB this week.

Third Sun Solar And AEP OnSite Partners Installing 2.33 Megawatts Solar Energy System at Denison University

Alternative Energy - Wed, 10/18/2017 - 16:41
Third Sun Solar and AEP OnSite Partners are bringing more than 2 megawatts (MW) of solar capacity to the Denison University. Geoff Greenfield, co-founder of Third Sun Solar, said the Athens-based solar energy provider will install the array near the Biological Reserve on the Denison campus in Granville. The majority of the construction will be completed in the next few months, with the system fully operational before the end 2017. When completed, the solar energy produced will offset approximately 15 percent of Denison University's electrical energy consumption.
