by @ 10:47 am. Filed under ALL, Electrical/Power, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Optics/Displays

WEDNESDAY May 11, 2011
SCV Photovoltaics Chapter
Speaker: Scott Dailey, Director of Product Management, Solyndra
Time: Networking at 6:00 PM; Presentation at 6:30 PM
Cost: none
Place: Palo Alto Research Center (G.E. Pake Auditorium), 3333 Coyote Hill Road, Palo Alto
RSVP: not required
Commercial rooftops offer many compelling advantages over ground-mount and residential PV.? Commercial rooftop solar doesnâ??t displace agriculture or mar pristine desert landscapes. There are no endangered species, and no significant transmission/interconnection challenges.? Grid integration and permitting are simple, and there are typically no â??angry neighbors.???? In addition, the available supply of these large rooftops is truly vast, estimated at over 10 Billion square meters, or well over 500 GW potential worldwide.
Solyndraâ??s products were specifically designed for the commercial rooftop market.? Weâ??ll take a look at the world from a â??Solyndrical??? point of view, and understand why Solyndra has shipped over 100MW to 1,000+ rooftops in over 20 countries worldwide.? Some new applications will also be covered, including Agricultural Shade and other innovative deployments of this unique technology.? Weâ??ll have a Solyndra panel on-hand, and will be taking signups for a tour of our factory in Fremont.
