The Next Solar Boom

The passage of the legislation, known as the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), already has industry professionals buzzing about the potential for another Solar Boom. For those of you who have been in the the industry long enough to remember the years following the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the rapid growth and expansion of the solar industry in the years following is something to be excited about. However, it is also wise to remember the pitfalls and lessons learned during ...

Are you considering the Inflation Reduction Act: Solar makes even more sense for your facility

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) represents the largest investment in Clean Energy in American history. The expansion of federal and state decarbonization policies, in addition to the historical incentives and major utility and corporate commitments to reduce carbon emissions, is continuing to drive extraordinary demand for renewable energy systems. Gordian Energy Systems has been at the forefront of the commercial solar initiation for nearly 15 years.  Now is the time to consider new solar opportunities for your facility.  Let Gordian ...

Aerial Thermography

As the Solar Industry continues to grow, new technologies and solutions are developing for ensuring quality control across the PV system. One such solution is using Aerial Thermography to identify deficiencies within the array. Aerial Thermography can identify module hot spots, panels not plugged in, issues with the PV strings, and damaged material. Aerial Thermography can be more reliable than hand-held thermography at ground level. Solar industry leaders will aim to incorporate these changes into the industry to maximize the ...

Solar’s Constantly Changing Technology

Many solar industry professionals with over ten years of experience have seen massive technology changes over the last decade. As many systems are now reaching tenure, we have a unique opportunity to look back at these older technologies and see how far we have come. Here are Gordian Energy’s Top Five Technology Changes over the last decade. #5: Storage Storage technologies have allowed us to offset peak hour demand and will be a driving force in the industry’s continued innovation. ...

Solar Revenue Forecasting and Changing Models

Any customer looking to build a commercial or industrial solar array uses PV Production Modeling to estimate their system’s Annual Production. With this data, they are able to determine their return on investment and payback period, i.e. “how long it will take for the system to produce enough electricity to pay for itself.” However, the accuracy of production modeling is affected by the accuracy of the weather data, 3D models, and equipment data the model uses. As the solar industry ...
