UK Promotes Solar with Grants, Oil Drill Powered by PV System

The United Kingdom is doing its part to promote solar energy. Two major incentives are being initiated that should ease the cost of small-scale solar energy systems through the UK. Renewable Heat Incentives may have expired in July 2009, but Feed in Tariffs was founded in April 2010 and relates directly to photovoltaic (PV) systems. This FIT program replaced other grants, which have since expired, and also give financial aid to wind turbines and hydro systems. To learn more visit www.enerfina.com.

Unconquered Sun Technologies of Ontario, Canada is holding one of the first solar exclusive job fairs on Friday. The solar company in Canada hopes to expand their reach, and is looking to hire 50 employees by this summer. While the company is looking to hire PV manufacturing technicians, installers, sales team members, and supervisors, experience is not necessary. The company is seeing an increase in small-scale solar installation projects, and is hoping to free up log-time to take on bigger projects while turning over smaller solar projects quickly. The job fair will be held from 9:30AM-4:00pm.

A once steam-powered oil pumping system in California is turning towards solar power. The company GlassPoint is responsible for the change and is calling the move a “solar enhanced oil recovery.” The specific solar generators used are unlike photovoltaic panels in that they do not use hydraulic actuators to position them. Instead, more commonly found metals are used making this solar project energy efficient and cost effective.

China is still working towards becoming the world’s largest solar powerhouse. China is currently the largest consumer of power, and hopes to surpass Germany’s solar energy market by the year 2013. Solar producers in China make solar products that are considered low cost, and positioned well in both local and international markets. With many tax incentives set to expire in Germany at the end of the year, China’s goal to surpass the now top solar producer could become a reality.

    Solar energy creates absolutely no pollution. This is perhaps the most important advantage that makes solar energy so much more practical than oil. Oil burning releases harmful greenhouses gases, carcinogens and carbon dioxide into our precious air.

      Thanks for this great information

    It is quite cheaper to take on the task of installing the panels instead of having someone do them for you. However tax credits can help a lot with the affordability of this technology.

    PV cells were originally developed for use in space, where repair is extremely expensive, if not impossible. PV still powers nearly every satellite circling the earth because it operates reliably for long periods of time with virtually no maintenance.

    Most commercial solar photovoltaic system developers also serve the residential market, schools and municipal government projects. Many lack the analytic and financial rigor that corporate clients require in making investment decisions.
