Edison's Rooftop Solar Project

Southern California Edison unveiled its newest power plant: 33,700 solar panels atop a warehouse in Fontana that will feed green energy directly into the grid. It's the first piece of what the utility says could become the largest rooftop solar installation in the world, a swath of photovoltaic panels spanning two square miles. The 600,000-square-foot warehouse rooftop, owned by ProLogis Inc., is the first of 150 commercial buildings that Edison is looking to outfit with solar panels over the next five years. Collectively, solar panels on all those roofs would provide 250 megawatts of electricity, enough by Edison's reckoning to power more than 160,000 homes when the sun is shining. Read More.

Maxwell Technologies - Ultracapacitor Solutions for Wind Pitch Control

Variable wind conditions at a wind farm can impact the quality of power output. Maxwell's ultracapacitors provide burst power for electric blade pitch control systems to optimize wind turbine output and/or to ensure rotor speed remains within a safe operating range. In addition, Maxwell's ultracapacitors have demonstrated their durability and reliability at -40 to 65°C, which enables pitch control systems to meet grueling wind energy expectations under extreme conditions. Maxwell ultracapacitors are reliable for hundreds of thousands of cycles, and nearly eliminate site visits to change out batteries. Our wind-system ultracapacitors range from 350 to 3,400 farad cells and integrated modules of 16, 75 and 160 volts. Maxwell ultracapacitors have a proven track record of success in over 30,000 turbines in operation worldwide.
