On-Site Clean Energy
I have compiled a list of questions routinely asked by industrial, commercial, and government customers and mixed-use developers relating to on-site clean energy generation. Answers to a broader range of questions are profiled in my Q&A Column featured on the largest renewable energy web portal: www.renewableenergyaccess.com.

WHERE DO I LEARN MORE ABOUT CLEAN ENERGY?
January 16, 2008
A:Universities, national laboratories, non-profit associations, industry groups, and companies all have a wealth of information on clean energy. I list some of the most-used web-site on my own website (www.thestellagroupltd.com) or you can quick connect through the web portal: www.renewableenergyaccess.com.
 
SHOULD I DESIGN MY OWN ENERGY SYSTEM?
January 16, 2008
A:While many end users do design their own systems today, as they did with automobiles in the early development days, there are really too many variables and too much of a learning curve to do so today. Aside from matching different voltages from five to 20 components, they all have different electrical tolerances, communication protocols, and software interfaces. Working with a manufacturer, system house, or licensed/certified equipment installer is the only way to go.
 
HOW DO I CHECK ON A POTENTIAL PRODUCT OR COMPANY?
January 16, 2008
A:Most serious companies belong to their State, regional or national trade associations (see web site question below), and some of the components are certified by nationally-recognized organizations, such as United Laboratories (UL) or for solar water heating systems, the Solar Rating & Certification Corporation (SRCC). Ask the company's local distributor for customer references on an installation in your area thatís more than a year old - thereís no better way than checking with an actual customer (if they have no relationship with the provider of technology).
