Solar In Saskatchewan - What 4 million panels from space looks like!

"In the past few years, the title of “largest solar farm in the world” has been a rather short-lived distinction. For a period in 2014, the Topaz Solar Farm in California topped the list with its 550-megawatt (MW) facility. In 2015, another operation in California, Solar Star, edged its capacity up to 579 MW. By 2016, India’s Kamuthi Solar Power Project in Tamil Nadu was on top with 648 MW of capacity. As of February 2017, Longyangxia Dam Solar Park in China was the new leader, with 850 MW of capacity. These images, both of which were acquired by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8, show how the solar park grew over a four-year period. By January 5, 2017, solar panels covered 27 s

Solar Panels Regina - Enphase Saftey

Latest Release From Enphase regarding micro inverters and why they are the safest system on the market. "Microinverters Still Safest After 2017 Code Changes" Feb 07, 2017 Rooftop solar will be safer for US homeowners and installers thanks to recent changes in the electrical code used by permit inspectors across the country. As each state adopts the 2017 edition of the National Electrical Code (NEC), high voltage will be restricted to the solar module array.
