SolarCity currently has more than 50 open positions for the new facility and more than 100 open positions across the state.
The are several different types of concentrated solar thermal technologies and ways to apply them. This video from the U.S. department of energy outlines the basics of concentrating solar power ( CSP ) technology as it stands today. The most common forms of CSP include something as simple as solar tubes in a solar hot water system for home or industry, to parabolic solar trough, solar dishes that track the sun and solar towers with hundreds of computer controlled mirrors.
Recycled tires could see new life in lithium-ion batteries that provide power to plug-in electric vehicles and store energy produced by wind and solar, say researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
A new research platform uses a laser to measure the “nanomechanical” properties of tiny structures undergoing stress and heating, an approach likely to yield insights to improve designs for microelectronics and batteries.
The system, installed at the Coral Wood Court Apartments, will enable low-income Reseda residents to use renewable energy and reduce energy costs while creating local green jobs. This financed system uses price-indexed energy to guarantee energy savings to the host low-income housing community, versus standard utility rates. The system is expected to save more than $175,000 over 30 years
