Photovoltaics were initially solely used as a source of electricity for small and medium-sized applications, from the calculator powered by a single solar cell to remote homes powered by an off-grid rooftop PV system.

Photovoltaics were initially solely used as a source of electricity for small and medium-sized applications, from the calculator powered by a single solar cell to remote homes powered by an off-grid rooftop PV system. This highlights an advantage of solar over other renewable energy sources, such as wind, water or geothermal power, partially offsetting its generally higher cost: namely that light can be readily, reliably and relatively inobtrusively captured close to the point of power consumption when there is sufficient surface area, avoiding moving parts and the additional costs of a power distribution network, particularly when paired with rechargable batteries.

Not done for now: Please provide a source for this. ToThAc (talk) 16:00, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Good Afternoon,

I am looking to make a small contribution to this page after doing research. I would like to add a small portion to the Concentrated Solar Power, and Solar Renewable Energy Tax Credits (SRECs) sections. I have listed and cited my addition below.

Respectfully, Evan


Section: Concentrated Solar Power One technique used by solar power towers is the use of an insulated closed system to produce molten salt. Molten salt contains more energy than that of water vapor and is channeled through the system to generate electricity via steam driven turbines. Molten salt storage units, often referred to as molten-salt batteries, are capable of maintaining energy production for up to 16 hours without additional input. [2]

Section: Solar Renewable Energy Tax Credits (SRECs) The Energy Policy Act of 2005 was signed into law by President George W. Bush. The policy allowed investors of solar technology to deduct up to 30% of the costs involved with installation and materials from their taxable income. One downfall to this plan is the bi-annual renewal of the legislation. An average CSP plant takes approximately 4-6 years to build, but the lack of guaranteed tax reductions over the lifespan of the project deterred investors. [1]
