Solar Panels UP! (HD)

Solar Energy! On beautiful Seabrook Island, nestled on the coast just south of Charleston, South Carolina, lies Camp St. Christopher It offers over 300 acres of beach, marsh and maritime forest and multiple facilities including meeting and conference centers, lodging, and worship centers. We’re excited about keeping you up-to-date on our progress and informing you about how this project was made possible. The process began last August when the State Energy Office put out information that there were going to be .9 million available in grants for alternative energy projects for non-profits. As soon as we found out, we immediately started getting in touch with local Charleston non-profit organizations to inform them about the opportunity. When St. Christopher responded about being interested, we setup a meeting for late September 2009 and went out to view the grounds and start planning. The RFP from the State was issued in early September. The government was looking at multiple factors before approving a non-profit like St. Christopher for the grant. These included visibility of project, potential job creation, overall benefit in terms of investment and payback of the project (they needed a minimum return of .50 dollars to spent). The grant writing process was long and hard, but St. Christopher didn’t have to worry about that. SES took care of making sure the grant was completed correctly and on time. Anything we were able to do to make the process easier for them, we

Subsidized grid connected photovoltaics tariffs in Europe

The Feed-in Tariff (FIT) is an incentive made to recompense the production of renewable energy both by households and investors. Power companies are supposed to purchase back, at rates higher than the market, power produced from renewable sources; such as wind, thermal solar, PV solar, biomass, hydro and geothermal. This tariff is also called Feed-in Law, Solar Premium, Renewable Tariff or Renewable Energy Payments. FIT helps make the production of renewable energy economically viable. Usually governments secure the tariff for up to 15, 20 or even 25 years from the date of the setup.

The advance of sources of renewable energy is deemed critical to avoiding climate change. The cost of producing renewable energy is still higher than the cost of producing energy from petrol and carbon. FIT tries to counterbalance this difference, thus making more attractive renewable energy installations, asking the utility company to repurchase and reuse the power made by renewable installations. The difference in cost is spread over all of the customers of the power grid. FIT requires net metering regulation to account for electricity purchased from the grid and energy sold to the grid.

FIT is seen as more effective than quotas enforced on power companies, because it satisfies the morality of people. What follows is a simplified summary of FIT policies by some European countries.
