Which is a polite way of saying that coal-combustion aerosols are reducing solar panels’ electricity harvest -- by up to a third! (Dark aerosols, like soot, tend to absorb light; other aerosols such as sulfates and nitrates, reflect light. In both cases, the aerosols prevent light from reaching solar panels below.)


eV2g Marks Milestone, Selling Electricity From EV Test Fleet To PJM Grid

A distributed power-clean energy milestone was reached late last week as leaders from government and industry joined officials from the University of Delaware and NRG energy to celebrate the first instance of electric vehicle-to-grid (EV2G) technology being used to sell electricity to the power grid. Ongoing success could well provide a critical missing link on the path to a clean, green, renewable and distributed energy infrastructure, economy, and society
