Chat Box / Agricultural Solar –...

If you have already decided to hop on the agricultural solar power bandwagon, then you must know everything about ground mounted solar panels and how can it help you and your farm.

Mounting Systems for Farmers

Mounting systems are a crucial element of solar arrays which help secure solar panels to the ground. The reasonably huge open space in your farm for installing a larger solar setup can help you benefit from the clean energy and also enjoy significant long-term savings.
 
How Do They Work?

Agricultural solar panels anchor to the ground and hold a large number of stacked panels. Usually, they hold two, but sometimes they are three or four panels high.

Typically, two rails support each panel, whether oriented in portrait or landscape. The anchoring to the ground is the tough part of these installations, as there are different types of foundations.

If there is no debris in the soil, steel beams are driven into the ground and the racking system is attached to the beams. If ground conditions are not suitable for smoothly driven beams, helical piles or ground screws may be used. These take more time to install, as they have to power through boulders and other large debris.

Benefits of Agricultural Solar Panels

If you are opting for agricultural solar panels, you can always read through the benefits it will offer you.

Agricultural solar installation is very easy and no infrastructural changes are required to install them.
More and more farmers are realizing that crops which grow under lower drought stress require less water, and they are able to photosynthesize longer and grow more efficiently.
Agricultural solar panels allows crops to grow in nearly full shade. It cuts back about 75% of the direct sunlight hitting the plants and allows the diffuse light under the panels to help the plants to grow well.
Solar panels make the most of the available space and sunlight. They are very easy to maintain and are designed to withstand even the worst weather conditions.

So, if you want to make the most of the sun and the extra outdoor space you have, invest in agricultural solar.

Chat Box / Residential Solar Its Right...
Last post by errohitbhardwaj - Dec 23, 2019, 05:46 PM
One thing that many of us would have heard from homeowners, long ago,  "solar panels in my home sound nice, but are a little expensive". This may have been the case when the technology was new, but today, there are multiple options that make solar affordable, feasible and accessible to everyone.

Residential solar allows homeowners to access clean solar energy from as low as $0, with no maintenance worries and absolutely no debt. You pay for the energy at a low monthly rate and ultimately the solar is delivered as a service. Solar panels are installed on the ground or on the roof, maintained and daily monitored. Residential solar has made its journey from just "nice to have" to "need to have".

Residential Solar Battery

Home battery storage is another key part of the story. Technology has advanced and it has become more affordable for communities and people to have their own solar battery backup to protect families during power outages.  

According to a report, around 2 million Latinos live within a half mile of existing energy infrastructure, due to which these communities face elevated health risks. A Latino or an African American child is twice as likely to die from asthma attack as a white American child.

The devastating hurricane Irma hit Florida in 2017. During this calamity, solar-paired battery systems powered 115 schools, which were sheltering thousands of residents. At the same time, more than 6.7 million utility customers were stuck in the dark.

With residential solar, houses can produce their own energy, and create a clean, localized energy system.

Going Solar

The economic impact of using solar helps the local economy to get a lift through job creation and permitting fees. Around 25% of home solar project costs stay in the local economy and around 6% of large commercial project costs are spent similarly. Solar provides high-paying jobs for veterans, who make up 9% of solar workers, and for those without a college degree.

Residential solar has never been so affordable than it is right now. So, if you haven't started thinking about investing in residential solar panels, this is right time to move one step ahead in the direction of green revolution.

Global Technology Updates / G Suite going to stop supporti...
Last post by Kalyan - Dec 17, 2019, 09:05 PM
Starting February 15, 2021, G Suite accounts will only allow access to apps using OAuth. Password-based access will no longer be supported.

To strengthen G Suite accounts against hijacking attempts, we'll be turning off access to apps that can access Google accounts with only a username and password, called Less Secure Apps (LSA).

Access will be turned off in stages, according to the following timeline:

June 15, 2020 - Users who try to connect to an LSA for the first time will no longer be able to do so. This includes third-party apps that allow password-only access to Google calendars, contacts, and email such as CalDAV, CardDAV and IMAP. Users who have connected to LSAs prior to this date will be able to continue using them until usage of all LSAs is turned off.

February 15, 2021 - Access to LSAs will be turned off for all G Suite accounts.


What do my customers need to do?

To continue using email, contacts, or calendar tools with their G Suite accounts, customers need to switch to a more secure type of access called OAuth. This connection method allows apps to access account information with a digital key instead of requiring users to reveal their username and password. Instructions for updating email, contacts, and calendar apps are included in the customer message below.
What can I do to support my customers?

We've contacted your affected customers about this change. To better prepare your customers, we recommend taking the following actions as soon as possible:

Carefully review the notification we sent to your customers (copied below). It includes details about switching to third-party apps that use OAuth to securely access G Suite account information.

Follow up with your customers to provide additional support as needed.


Thanks for choosing G Suite.

Google / Google CEO Sundar Pichai takin...

Google CEO Sundar Pichai taking the lead at Alphabet Inc & Google Inc

Alphabet has announced that Larry Page and Sergey Brin are stepping down as the respective CEO and president of the company, with Google CEO Sundar Pichai taking the lead at both companies, effective immediately. Page and Brin will still be involved as co-founders, board members and shareholders.

The two outgoing execs explained this as a "natural time" to streamline management now that Alphabet is "well-established" and its various brands (including Google) are operating smoothly as independent companies. In a tweet, Pichai said, "We have a timeless mission, enduring values and a culture of collaboration & exploration."


More Detailed Letter from Larry Page & Sergey Brin and also an email from New Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai : https://blog.google/inside-google/alphabet/letter-from-larry-and-sergey/


A letter from Larry and Sergey

Larry Page and Sergey Brin
Founders
Published Dec 3, 2019

Our very first founders' letter in our 2004 S-1 began:

Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one. Throughout Google's evolution as a privately held company, we have managed Google differently. We have also emphasized an atmosphere of creativity and challenge, which has helped us provide unbiased, accurate and free access to information for those who rely on us around the world."


We believe those central tenets are still true today. The company is not conventional and continues to make ambitious bets on new technology, especially with our Alphabet structure. Creativity and challenge remain as ever-present as before, if not more so, and are increasingly applied to a variety of fields such as machine learning, energy efficiency and transportation. Nonetheless, Google's core service--providing unbiased, accurate, and free access to information--remains at the heart of the company.


However, since we wrote our first founders' letter, the company has evolved and matured. Within Google, there are all the popular consumer services that followed Search, such as Maps, Photos, and YouTube; a global ecosystem of devices powered by our Android and Chrome platforms, including our own Made by Google devices; Google Cloud, including GCP and G Suite; and of course a base of fundamental technologies around machine learning, cloud computing, and software engineering. It's an honor that billions of people have chosen to make these products central to their lives--this is a trust and responsibility that Google will always work to live up to.


And structurally, the company evolved into Alphabet in 2015. As we said in the Alphabet founding letter in 2015:


"Alphabet is about businesses prospering through strong leaders and independence."


Since we wrote that, hundreds of Phoenix residents are now being driven around in Waymo cars--many without drivers! Wing became the first drone company to make commercial deliveries to consumers in the U.S. And Verily and Calico are doing important work, through a number of great partnerships with other healthcare companies. Some of our "Other Bets" have their own boards with independent members, and outside investors.


Those are just a few examples of technology companies that we have formed within Alphabet, in addition to investment subsidiaries GV and Capital G, which have supported hundreds more.  Together with all of Google's services, this forms a colorful tapestry of bets in technology across a range of industries--all with the goal of helping people and tackling major challenges.


Our second founders' letter began:


"Google was born in 1998. If it were a person, it would have started elementary school late last summer (around August 19), and today it would have just about finished the first grade."


Today, in 2019, if the company was a person, it would be a young adult of 21 and it would be time to leave the roost. While it has been a tremendous privilege to be deeply involved in the day-to-day management of the company for so long, we believe it's time to assume the role of proud parents--offering advice and love, but not daily nagging!


With Alphabet now well-established, and Google and the Other Bets operating effectively as independent companies, it's the natural time to simplify our management structure. We've never been ones to hold on to management roles when we think there's a better way to run the company. And Alphabet and Google no longer need two CEOs and a President. Going forward, Sundar will be the CEO of both Google and Alphabet. He will be the executive responsible and accountable for leading Google, and managing Alphabet's investment in our portfolio of Other Bets. We are deeply committed to Google and Alphabet for the long term, and will remain actively involved as Board members, shareholders and co-founders. In addition, we plan to continue talking with Sundar regularly, especially on topics we're passionate about!


Sundar brings humility and a deep passion for technology to our users, partners and our employees every day. He's worked closely with us for 15 years, through the formation of Alphabet, as CEO of Google, and a member of the Alphabet Board of Directors. He shares our confidence in the value of the Alphabet structure, and the ability it provides us to tackle big challenges through technology. There is no one that we have relied on more since Alphabet was founded, and no better person to lead Google and Alphabet into the future.


We are deeply humbled to have seen a small research project develop into a source of knowledge and empowerment for billions--a bet we made as two Stanford students that led to a multitude of other technology bets. We could not have imagined, back in 1998 when we moved our servers from a dorm room to a garage, the journey that would follow.

Sundar sent the following email to Googlers on Tuesday, December 3:
Hi everyone,


When I was visiting Googlers in Tokyo a few weeks ago I talked about how Google has changed over the years. In fact, in my 15+ years with Google, the only constant I've seen is change. This process of continuous evolution -- which the founders often refer to as "uncomfortably exciting" -- is part of who we are. That statement will feel particularly true today as you read the news Larry and Sergey have just posted to our blog.

The key message Larry and Sergey shared is this:


While it has been a tremendous privilege to be deeply involved in the day-to-day management of the company for so long, we believe it's time to assume the role of proud parents--offering advice and love, but not daily nagging!


With Alphabet now well-established, and Google and the Other Bets operating effectively as independent companies, it's the natural time to simplify our management structure. We've never been ones to hold on to management roles when we think there's a better way to run the company. And Alphabet and Google no longer need two CEOs and a President. Going forward, Sundar will be the CEO of both Google and Alphabet. He will be the executive responsible and accountable for leading Google, and managing Alphabet's investment in our portfolio of Other Bets. We are deeply committed to Google and Alphabet for the long term, and will remain actively involved as Board members, shareholders and co-founders. In addition, we plan to continue talking with Sundar regularly, especially on topics we're passionate about!


I first met Larry and Sergey back in 2004 and have been benefiting from their guidance and insights ever since. The good news is I'll continue to work with them -- although in different roles for them and me. They'll still be around to advise as board members and co-founders.

I want to be clear that this transition won't affect the Alphabet structure or the work we do day to day. I will continue to be very focused on Google and the deep work we're doing to push the boundaries of computing and build a more helpful Google for everyone. At the same time, I'm excited about Alphabet and its long term focus on tackling big challenges through technology.

The founders have given all of us an incredible chance to have an impact on the world. Thanks to them, we have a timeless mission, enduring values, and a culture of collaboration and exploration that makes it exciting to come to work every day. It's a strong foundation on which we will continue to build. Can't wait to see where we go next and look forward to continuing the journey with all of you.

Hot News - InFocus / Powering Many States in US wit...
Last post by errohitbhardwaj - Nov 15, 2019, 07:55 PM
With solar costs coming down incredibly, more and more states in US are trying to adopt commercial solar. States that would fail to encourage the solar trend now, when the costs are low, will risk missing out on important economic development opportunities.

South Dakota is facing a similar situation right now.

The state's renewable energy industry is experiencing a tough time. The state has not made lot of headlines in the renewable energy department and in 2017, Solar Energy Industries Association even ranked it dead. The percentage of electricity generated by solar in South Dakota couldn't even register on the needle and the five-year prospects for growth were zero. Not much of South Dakota is a prime area for solar development, however, the entire south-western corner of the state possesses decent solar resources.

The solar lease options may not be very attractive in the state, but Audubon Society seems a little ray of hope for the solar industry in South Dakota. The Governor, Kristi Noem has lately signed a legislation to ramp up the state's solar and wind industries. The new agreement would be issued by the Office of School and Public Lands, and would cover easements.

Washington will also see a ray of hope.

An energy legislation would be passed this year in Washington, which would not be the sweeping measure to tackle climate change, but it will surely do more good than harm for the climate and the country.

California will set an example for other states.

California's first-in-the-nation requirement that all new homes should have solar panels is undeniably a giant leap towards its goal of a fossil-free future. The state will set an example for other states in the US.

With 80,000 houses built in California every year, the mandate that will come to effect in 2020 will more than double the amount of solar energy produced in the state by 2025. California hopes to have 100% of its electricity come from carbon emission-free sources by 2045.

Within the past few years, a few cities in California have implemented requirements that all new homes have solar panels, like the town of South Miami in Florida. But, this is the first time that the law will be rolled-out on a large scale.

Wind and solar have come a long way. Today, these sources produce about 9% percent of the electricity in US, their costs have declined dramatically and using these renewable sources is definitely a major step towards a green planet.
