This research quantified the corrosion of buried structural steel at solar power plants. Researchers analyzed soil samples from an Arizona solar farm and used the results to model the soil corrosivity for steel and zinc.
Over the past two years, EPRI and its utility members launched more than two dozen demonstrations across the United States and Europe to test emerging technologies to integrate central and distributed energy resources. This report discusses insights and lessons from this work.
This report provides a two-year update on EPRI field demonstrations with 20 utilities to test technologies for enabling an integrated grid, along with top 10 lessons.
Residential Off-Grid Solar + Storage Systems: A Case Study Comparison of On-Grid and Off-Grid Power for Residential Consumers
The rapid fall in prices of solar panels and battery storage have led some to suggest that it will soon be advantageous for consumers to create off-grid power systems. This paper investigates the costs, reliability, and tradeoffs of off-grid solar/storage relative to grid-connected versions.
