Solar Microgrids for Hurricane Resiliency


In June 2022, an article released by NASA detailed how increased intensity of hurricanes due to climate change will lead to more intense rainfall. As the intensity of extreme weather events increase, there will be more property damage and power outages across the country. One proposed solution to alleviate these effects of extreme weather events is to implement solar microgrids to diversify energy sources.

Why are Construction Contractors Missing Out on Valuable Revenue and Customers?


Many local governments, real estate owners, and lease holders are currently looking to implement solar panels on new construction projects and remodels. In December 2018, California became the first state to require that all new homes are built with solar. Other states, including Massachusetts, are likely to do the same in upcoming years. Representatives Mike Connolly and Jack Lewis from Massachusetts proposed the Solar Neighborhoods Act in 2021, which would mandate rooftop solar panels be installed on all new residential and commercial buildings in the state. For General and Electrical Contractors, the demand to offer end-to-end solar projects will continue to rise. According to Investopedia, end-to-end projects describe a process by which a service is performed from beginning to end without obtaining anything from a third party.
