If your business manufactures, installs, or is otherwise involved within the solar power field, then you’re aware that this industry is experiencing substantial growth. The Solar Energy Industries Association reported that there are over 9,000 companies throughout 50 states that are involved within this industry. Furthermore, these companies employ almost 250,000 American workers.
Supplying Earth’s Energy Needs
Solar panels could supply the Earth’s population with all of the energy that is needed. It’s been determined that if just 0.0005% of our planet’s surface was covered with solar panels, all energy goals could be met. Given this, more solar panels are being installed and with greater frequency.
Existing Solar Installations
In 2016, there were 1.6 million solar installations in the United States alone. This was a year of record growth, which is expected to increase within the next few years. During 2018, the number of solar installations is expected to exceed two million. By 2022, the number of installations is expected to be four million. The total solar capacity that existed in the United States as recently as December 2017 was 49 gigawatts.
Cost Reductions and Solar Panels
In past decades, both businesses and households were encouraged to install solar panels to meet some or all of their energy needs. While the cost was often prohibitive in the early days, this has been changing. Since 1977, the cost for solar installations has declined 100 times. By 2008, the price had become less expensive. Currently, the cost to have solar panels installed is roughly half what it was back in 2008. Combined with the efficiency and other merits of solar energy, this cost reduction makes it even more accessible to have solar panels installed in a variety of settings.
Meter Mix Dispense Equipment and Other Dispensing Solutions
When you use the right equipment and materials, it can make a significant difference in your final product’s quality. Meter mix dispense equipment, for example, can measure out the exact amounts and proportions of resin to hardener being used. It then combines these two substances together in either a static or dynamic mixer before the mixture is dispensed.
In addition to meter mix dispense equipment, you may require other dispensing solutions. You may, for instance, be interested in adhesive dispensing systems and silicone dispensing systems. When you contact the manufacturer, you will be able to discuss these and other systems in greater detail. At that time, you will be able to provide them with information about the nature of your business and what you require to complete your projects. It’s important to note that these systems can be custom-made to address your unique purposes.
