Developments in Solar Energy

EI Solutions powers on largest solar facility in the Pacific Northwest
November 7, 2007—EI Solutions, the systems integration arm of Energy Innovations, Inc., recently announced that it has recently completed construction on the main portion of the Pacific Northwest's largest solar-powered generating facility for Puget Sound Energy, a utility subsidiary of Puget Energy. The 2,408 newly installed solar panels can now generate up to 450 kilowatts (kW) of power.

The new solar-powered generating facility is located adjacent to the utility's Wild Horse wind-power facility in central Washington. The installation will be the first to use solar panels manufactured in Washington State. Silicon Energy, LLC, a subsidiary of OutBack Power Systems of Arlington, Wash., is providing ten percent of the panels for PSE's solar project that are expected to be installed in the first half of 2008, completing the 500 kw project.
The $4 million Wild Horse solar project will incorporate more than 2,700 photovoltaic solar panels, mounted in two separate locations across five acres. EI Solutions began construction of the solar project in June of this year.

PSE's 9,000-acre Wild Horse wind-power facility, located about 125 miles southeast of Seattle, is one of the few locations in the United States where utility-scale wind- and solar-powered electricity generation occur side-by-side. The solar-power facility will complement the wind-power facility by providing peak power during daylight hours and in the summer whereas the Wild Horse wind facility generates its maximum power during the evenings and in the fall through spring seasons when the wind is the strongest.

Dawn of Solar Energy in United States.

Solar energy is the source of the life on the planet earth, but will it ever become a economical source of electricity generation??

Solar energy as a source of electricity is being used for some time now but still it is very expenssive as compared to conventional means of electrcity generation. Any breakthrough in solar energy is expected to revelutionize the human life. And of course it will also help to reduce the green house gas emissions and provide the greener energy to the internet infrastructure which is soruce of providing living to a number of people.
