  • It is nice to be able to brag, while your product is getting subsidies from the American Taxpayer. By the way, maybe you should be trying to solve your tax problems and water problems in California.

  • is exclusively manufactured at the company's headquarters in Allgäu
    has also been TÜV certified since 2011.
    Sonnenbatterie GmbH consistently invests in research and development that also predominantly
    takes place at the company's Bavarian headquarters. The detailed data of several hundred systems,
    which have been evaluated using anonymous online monitoring since 2011,
    form the solid and realistic basis for the customized development of the Sonnenbatterie.
    In 2010 the practical feasibility of the first Sonnenbatterie were tested in several single-family homes
    under real world conditions. Once the fine-tuning based on these findings had been completed,
    the Sonnenbatterie was introduced to the German and Austrian markets in January 2011
    as one of the first proven and transportable intelligent lithium storage systems.
    The company is a pioneer in what is now a rapidly growing storage market
    and now has over 80 qualified employees. (homepage excerpt)

    Batteries, fuel cells, and solar cells all produce direct current (DC) which always flows in the
    same direction between positive and negative terminals.
    A power plant generates alternating current (AC). The direction of the current reverses, or alternates,
    60 times per second (in the U.S.) or 50 times per second (in Europe, for example).
    The power available at a wall socket in the U.S. is 120-volt, 60-cycle AC.
    The advantage that alternating current provides for the power grid is that it is relatively easy
    to change the voltage using a transformer.

    How does this work? Say you have a power plant that can produce 1 million watts of power.
    One way to transmit that power would be to send 1 million amps at 1 volt. Another way to transmit it
    would be to send 1 amp at 1 million volts. Sending 1 amp requires only a thin wire, and not much of
    the power is lost to heat during transmission. Sending 1 million amps would require a huge wire.
    So power companies convert alternating current to very high voltages for transmission,
    then drop it back down to lower voltages for distribution, and finally down to 120 volts for safety.
    To learn more, read How Power Grids Work. (howstuffworks)

    Electricity degrades with distance transmitted giving rooftop solar an
    efficiency advantage over utility-scale solar which also requires land.
    EIA estimates that national electricity transmission and distribution losses average
    about 6% of the electricity that is transmitted and distributed in the U.S. each year.

    Avg cost/watt came down 1% in a month nevertheless

    What can the matter be with but 34 weeks left in 2015?

    "According to the best case scenario (humans take very aggressive action to
    reduce greenhouse gases), the experts think sea level rise will likely be about
    1.3–2.0 feet by 2100 and 2.0–3.3 feet by 2300.
    According to the more likely higher emission scenario, the results are
    2.3–3.9 feet by 2100 and 6.5–9.8 feet by 2300."

  • Search Web "Imagining the U.S. Supreme Court Covered in Solar Panels".

    Last week, I emailed the Court's Public Information Office to ask whether
    there's a current intention or plan to install solar panels on the Building.
    I haven't received an answer yet. Perhaps the Nine are still debating the question.
    Wonder how many Justices now have home-solar like President Obama.
