The innovative renewable energy project will add up to 10 MW solar PV to the technology leader’s clean energy portfolio in Asia
OVERLAND PARK, Kan., January 23, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Diode Ventures, a Black & Veatch company, announce they have been selected to finance and develop a solar farm of up to 10-megawatt (MW) in Tainan City, Taiwan that will help expand Google’s position as the world’s largest purchaser of renewable energy.
If residential solar photovoltaics (PV) were adopted more widely in the United States, they could significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But consumers balk at high up-front costs, even if energy savings would later offset those costs. A group of researchers led by former Erb Research Fellow Kimberly Wolske set out to study how different framing strategies affect PV’s appeal.

Imagine groups of college students, working together with community leaders around the globe, in a contest to develop cutting edge, small, affordable, solar-powered homes for a pre-determined location.
Imagine 20 of those teams assembling their homes on a micro-grid and opening them for inspection by architects, engineers, and leaders from the community where they will be located, along with thousands of visitors interested in learning more about how they were built and where they will be used.

Dedicating one of the largest, solar-powered water treatment plants in Liberia and West Africa
On November 28, 2018, community officials, the Liberian government, and officials from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) celebrated the dedication of the Sanniquellie City water treatment plant. As part of the USAID Liberia Municipal Water Project (LMWP), Tetra Tech designed a solar-powered water treatment plant and public distribution system, placing kiosks within 500 meters of homes to reduce the time families spend collecting water to under 30 minutes.
