Solar energy technology improving

The Innovation of Solar Technology Never Stops

Solar energy technology keeps on getting better and more efficient. Engineers and scientists around the world and in our country are working day and night to find new ways to harvest solar power at the highest efficiency and the most affordable price. If you think about it, solar energy is just starting to rapidly expand.  As many environmental advocates push towards using renewable energies in place of harmful materials, scientists are looking to make solar even better.

Solar Energy Improvements Lie in Nature

A Michigan State University professor in the department of chemistry believes that the future of solar energy technology lies within nature. By this, he is referring to the abundant materials in nature that are scalable and designed to improve upon the energy conversion systems found in nature.

There is a new study that shows molecules telling scientists how to modify to better absorb solar energy for power usage. It’s a molecular property known as quantum coherence, which may play a huge role in natural photosynthesis.

Nature can tell us more things than we already know about harvesting solar energy. Sunlight is rather low-density for an energy source even though it’s abundant. You need large amounts of space to collect the right amount of solar energy. This is also why the commercial solar energy is ramping up with industrial and commercial companies. The goal for scientists researching solar energy is to harvest molecules that absorb energy from sunlight to be used for energy production and storage. The more molecules scientists find, the more energy we can harvest for the world.

This can have amazing benefits for the solar energy industry. As the industry grows, so does the technology. The easier and more efficient way to harvest solar energy will only help the world deal with problems.

Solar installation on home

Solar Panels Can Be Beautiful

Modern architecture has changed the way we live and how we build houses, office buildings, stores, schools, and more. Modern architecture does not consist of the cookie cutter designs anymore because architects have found new and beautiful ways to design buildings for aesthetics and function. One of the reasons we find new and modern architecture to be attractive is because it’s unique. Most people don’t realize that the design of these buildings has purpose behind the design.

When it comes to solar energy with architecture, designers are finding new was for solar panels and solar energy to be beautiful within architecture.

Solar Panels Make a Building Better

Solar panels are not only providing your building or land with clean energy, they’re also cooling your buildings. Experts have studied the effects of solar panels on roofs and found that solar panels reduce the heat on the roof. When the sun beats down on your roof, the heat is able to get inside the home causing temperatures to rise. This can cause air conditioning units to work extra hard to cool your building. Having solar panels can potentially reduce your heat by 5 degrees.

Architects designing modern buildings are finding new ways to build functioning facilities whether it be homes or commercial buildings.

At Pope Energy, our job is to help landowners, real estate owners, commercial building owners, farmers, and more develop large-scale solar projects. Modern architecture is changing the way we live and how we improve our world. Without solar energy, this task could be much more difficult.

Here are some examples of architecture where solar energy plays a major role in the design:

Nursery +E in Marburg/Opus Architekten

Shaped like little boxes raised in the air, this nursery is one of a kind with solar panels all around built into the architectural frame. The panels receive the most sun exposure due to the location of the panels and the design of the building.

The Endesa Pavilion

The Endesa Pavilion is the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia. The interesting aspect of the building is that it doesn’t have a particular shape. The roof has different angles with solar panels to maximize the energy intake it receives from the sun. This is definitely a beautiful masterpiece using renewable energy to gather energy for the building.

The Blauhaus at Niederrheim University

This building looks like the windows are angled with blue glass towards the sky, which they are, but those glass pieces are solar panels that can be rotated towards the sun at any time, which maximizes the solar energy that is received.

Architects Are Truly Creative in Modern Architecture

Now that the “fads” are over, architects have become extremely talented and creative in how they build any type of building. We’re witnessing true functionality when it comes to commercial buildings and homes across the United States. As more and more companies resort to solar energy to power their buildings, architects are working to develop new designs and functions.

Pope Energy

At Pope Energy, we are proud to be a part of the movement that is helping the world turn to solar energy and other renewable energy for power. We have helped many commercial industries to get their buildings net-zero energy. The investment sets you up for the future, which is crucial for any business or piece of property.

India Solar industry

India is Soaring with Solar Energy Production

It seems that the clean energy sector has not been hit bad by the economy during the COVID-19 Pandemic. India has completed the largest solar tender, while reducing its solar imports from China. Many countries rely on trade for their resources, but now we’re seeing countries develop their own domestic solar energy products for their own country, so they don’t have to rely on other nations’ resources.

What Does the Solar Tender Make Up?

Adani Green Energy Limited and Azure Power were declared the winners of the largest solar tender. The installation of 12 gigawatts of solar power generation and 3GW per year solar manufacturing. The investment equals about $9 billion in USD. In 2019, India only installed 7.3 GW, which is just under 5 less than this project.

What Does this Mean in India’s Solar Aspirations?

India is increasing their solar energy production, which means it brings competitive, domestic manufacturing into play. This will eliminate their need to import solar resources from China. India won’t have to rely on China anymore. India is looking to be independent when it comes to renewable energy.

Along with the benefits of being solar independent from China, India will be looking to reduce their carbon footprint, as well as implement 400,000 direct and indirect jobs for citizens of India. This helps India’s economy and distances themselves from the already critical infrastructure of China.

Solar land lease for commercial industries

Should You Lease Your Land for Solar?

Leasing your land for the placement of a solar photovoltaic development project allows you to gain long-term revenue from your property lease, enhance the value of your land for re-sale purposes, and keeping your property intact without having to subdivide any pieces of the property. Many landowners own land in which they can’t decide what to do with it. Solar energy investing might be the best move you can make for putting your unused land to purposeful use, and you’ll be getting paid for it as well.

Not only are you helping yourself save money, produce revenue, and help the environment, you’re also allowing other people to obtain resourceful and natural energy to power their homes and businesses.

Whether you are in the agricultural industry as a farmer trying to add revenue to your farm while continuing to work, a landowner without any ideas how to use your land, a real estate owner looking to cut costs on building expenses, or a commercial and industrial building owner, leasing that property out for solar energy production is one of the most beneficial things you can do to help yourself and others.

What will your land need in order to be leased for solar?

The ideal size for a five-megawatt system is at least 30 acres developing a standard solar field and 40-50 acres for an Agricultural Solar system. The smallest land area that is economically feasible for an investor owned system is 10-18 acres, which would yield a two to three-megawatt system.

Having access to utility grid infrastructure is important and does not need to be near a transmission corridor, but it needs to have a reasonable access to a three-phase electrical service. Good exposure to the sun is crucial, but also, be ready for a long-term commitment: solar farms offer amazing benefits for the long run, and it’s important to recognize this. Plan for the future with solar energy.

At Pope Energy, we’re in the solar energy business of helping landowners lease their property for large-scale photovoltaic solar projects. We also have financing opportunities for you to apply for because we know that not everyone can afford the entire cost up front. We understand that the future is solar, and we want every landowner to be investing their money in a rewarding long-term investment, rather than something quick and short lives.

Benefits of leasing your land for solar

Not only can you create a substantial source of additional income for your property, but you can also create a brighter, greener future for the surrounding community. If you have extra land available, why not put it to work generating renewable energy? Give your land a purpose for you and the community. Owning land is very important in today’s day and age, so why not make it useful with solar energy solutions from Pope Energy.  

That is community impact on a much greater level.

More farms around the country are turning to solar panels to power their farms, and they are seeing benefits they have never seen before. They can relax and focus on feeding communities all over the nation.

Land and Real Estate

Large landowners, as well as real estate owners have the opportunity to help the community and themselves by investing in solar energy to use on their land or properties. With apartment complexes or other rental properties, real estate owners can make their lives easier, as well as the apartment renters’ lives easier by installing solar panels. They could reduce the price for renting an apartment, cut down on their own energy costs, and be able to supply their renters with energy efficient amenities while living at their property.

Commercial & Industrial Solar Installation

As we mentioned before, commercial and industrial companies like Walmart, Apple, Target, and more are turning to solar panel installation to help supply energy for their industrial buildings, stores, and operational buildings. They have a certain influence over consumers, so for them to invest in renewable energy and the environment, they’re ethical persona plays well with the regular person, but it also is doing good for the entire world. When other large companies  see their counterparts doing this, they’ll be inclined to do the same.

What are the benefits for my business?

Not every business owner or industry executive realizes the full potential of benefits when it comes to investing their money into solar energy development on their properties or buildings. With a full-scale installation and development, your business will see these major long-term benefits that are worth the investment.

  • Eliminating your energy bills – When we use electricity, gas, and other resources for powering our essentials, we aren’t getting anything back. Renewable energy resources like solar is able to give us something back that we never had. Eliminating energy bills is most important to business owners. Electricity is a major expense in business, if you don’t have to worry about that extra expense, your business will run smoothly.
  • Reduce Carbon Footprint – By investing in solar energy to power your facilities, you’re reducing your carbon footprint. You’re helping the environment and become an example for others to do the same.
