There may not actually be 31 different versions of “solar” energy in use around the world these days, but it’s close and that is causing a massive amount of confusion for customers and observers, alike. As you all know, SkyPower is in the business of designing and building photovoltaic (PV) electric systems for homes and businesses around the State of Arizona because without any question, it’s the most efficient and cost effective mechanism to make electricity in a place as sunny as Arizona. Our blogs are very much PV centric … but from time to time, we do cross over into other technologies, not as experts, but rather as educated fans of all things renewable. It is in that spirit that we present some other “solar” technologies that just might add power to our world without ruining it. The first major category of “solar” that is not PV is solar concentrated thermal. The ide...
