Official figures published: China installed 12.92 GW of solar PV capacity in 2013; Shift to distributed generation in 2014

2014-07-21 |

Late April 2014, China’s National Energy Administration (NEA) announced that a total of 12.92 GW of solar PV capacity were installed in 2013. However, this figure is incomplete, since data from provinces like e.g. Jilin and Tibet were not included, Solar Server’s partner Asia Europe Clean Energy (Solar) Advisory Co. Ltd. (AECEA) notes. According to the official statistics, 12.12 GW fell into the category of large-scale, whereas the remaining 801 MW belonged to distributed solar PV projects. Read more...

Wildwoods Convention Center PV project

2013-07-05 |

In late July 2012, workers connected to the grid a 487 kW solar photovoltaic (PV) plant on the roof of the Wildwoods Convention Center in Wildwoods, New Jersey, on the Jersey Shore of reality TV fame. This is a large PV plant, but by no means the largest in New Jersey, and the mixture of Suntech and Eoplly multicrystalline silicon PV modules and Power-One inverters is fairly mainstream as well. What makes this PV plant different is its investors. A total of 823 individuals from 42 US states invested more than USD 1 million in the plant, though crowd-funding platform Mosaic. Read more...
