    The Homes of the 2017 Solar Decathlon

    The Solar Decathlon is a collegiate competition made up of 10 contests that challenge student teams to design and build full-size, solar-powered houses. The winning team blends design excellence and smart energy production with innovation,...
  • Simply applying a maximum load sharing value to all panels in an array can result in grossly non-conservative wind load values

    Principles of Wind Loading for PV Arrays

    The solar industry in the US is growing by leaps and bounds. In 2016 alone over 14.8GW of solar was installed, nearly doubling the amount installed in 2015. This growth is fueled largely by decreases in the installed price of solar, which dropped...
