Image via Flickr The sun is shining on solar energy across the world. In 2012, a record  31,100 megawatts of solar photovoltaics (PV) was installed, pushing the total global solar power capacity past 100,000 megawatts. Now, new reports from the Earth Policy Institute and Worldwatch Institute find that more countries are getting into the solar power game as costs come down and installations ramp up. Solar PV installed capacity increased by 41 percent in 2012 alone, with more than 30 countries now claiming capacity of over 100 megawatts—a figure that is projected to double by 2018.

Comments Off on Mass Megawatts Could Bring More Efficient Wind Power to Ski Resorts

Mass Megawatts Wind Power, Inc. , is testing new wind turbine equipment that could help boost the efficiency of the company’s Multi-Axis Turbosystem wind power generators.  The tests are under way at a wind power installation in Hunter, New York. If successful, the technology could start appearing soon at ski resorts in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  Last spring the principal owner of one major ski facility in the region, Camelback Mountain Resort , took an equity position in a licensed manufacturer of the Multi-Axis Turbosystem.  It appears to be a first step toward introducing sustainable wind power to ski resorts on an industry-wide scale
