The proposed route of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline crosses directly through Great Sioux Nation (Oceti Sakowin) Treaty lands as defined by both the 1851 and 1868 Fort Laramie Treaties and within the current exterior boundaries of the Rosebud Sioux Reservation and Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation.

As technology advances, harvesting solar energy is becoming a more practical and accessible option for businesses across a broad gamut of sizes, wealth, and locations. From major corporations to small, locally owned businesses, solar energy is becoming more prevalent year after year. Although this shift owes credit to wider awareness, proven effectiveness, and a higher consciousness of our own impact on the environment, a declining price on PV (photovoltaic) systems has spurred a lot of movement in the commercial adoption of solar energy.

With over a billion inhabitants, China is the most populous country in the world, and as it’s industrial revolution is underway, it increasingly contributes to global climate change, exploitation of limited resources, and atmospheric pollution. It is for these reasons that it’s so important for China to implement the use of solar energy, which is a much cleaner alternative to energy production than coal.

Occasionally, Potential Induced Degradation can occur on solar products produced by certain Chinese manufacturers. This occurs when the module’s voltage potential and leakage current drive ion mobility within the module, specifically when this occurs between the semiconductor material and other elements of the module, such as the frame or the glass.

According to an article recently completed for the Solar Energy Industries Association website, 2013 was the largest year yet for installation of solar energy sources. The United States PV Markets installed four thousand seven hundred and fifty one megawatts, a figure that equates to a forty one percent increase over installation levels from 2012; two thousand one hundred and six megawatts of this total was installed in the fourth quarter alone.

The US Senate is trying to do an end run with the dead Marketplace Fairness Act. This bill would require any company to collect, track and pay sales tax to every tax entity in the 50 states on internet sales. This insane bill would place a huge burden on every small company operating in the United States. Only large corporations would have the resources and manpower to comply with this.

Do you reside in Central America? Do you need help getting access to solar energy? The Solar Biz recently opened a new warehouse in Central America. It is now easier for them to help those living in or near Central America have access to electricity, solar electricity.

After a meeting between President Obama and Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, an agreement was struck that would allow the United States to fund the construction of a solar power plant in Chile. According to an article recently completed by The Hill, the arrangement has many benefits for both countries.

Recently, the Solar Energy Industry Association’s website provided a brief summary of an article detailing the efforts of the United States Military to bring Solar Energy Plants to their bases. The summary was based off an article completed by Lee Peterson, from CohnReznick’s National Renewable Energy Practice. Peterson regularly writes about solar financing for military-based projects.
