We’re focused on you
Happy new year! Have you made resolutions for 2015? Maybe you’ll anchor yourself every time you work on a roof. Maybe you’ll commit to more frequent Facebook updates (pictures, please). At Solar Power World, we have steered our ship toward one goal. Simply, we want to help you do your job better, starting today. With that mission in mind, we will continue to deliver the most useful information about solar technology, development and installation, while expanding our regular coverage to include software and solar services.
But to begin, our first issue of the year includes a special focus on modules. Leading companies share the latest on frameless modules, cell efficiencies, solar shingles and integrated modules. Future special sections will focus on racking and mounting (March), inverters and storage (August) and financing and insurance (November).
While modules, inverters and mounting comprise a bulk of the solar industry, as well as our coverage, there is much more to the business. Software, for instance, is increasingly a game-changer. Financing software helps businesses obtain funding. Design software assists with complex layout decisions. Sales software helps sell solar faster. Our first article discusses how manufacturers use software to help customers—and themselves.
While software deals with intangibles, sometimes a successful business just needs help mowing the grass. Our new section on solar services helps you find the help you need to improve your business, from O&M to engineering services. Our first section is a duo of articles featuring snow-removal service Solar Maid and several metal forming companies that manufacture custom solutions.
Finally, with our revised “Projects Spotlight” section, we aim to share stories from the field and what technology is used to make projects successful. All of this is in addition to our insightful marketing, finance and installation columns, features and other unique, high value content. Enjoy 2015, and good luck making the most of your solar business. We’ll be here to help you along the way!
