Here Comes The Light – Solar on an International Front

Rayah Bringing the Light to Men

Solar has been an increasing trend for countries such as Germany and the United States, bolstering their economy and creating jobs with the implementation of solar. However, as many of us probably know, solar is still an unknown and untapped resource in countries throughout the world. In many locations financing, electrical infrastructure and even corruption play large roles in keeping countries and communities from taking advantage of the benefits of solar. Despite all of this, with one home and building at a time, solar is slowly making its way across the globe, helping those less fortunate to have a more consistent means of electricity; many times creating a thriving economy – where there had only been chaos and theft – against all odds.

For instance, last summer, Rayah Solar’s non-profit, Rayah.org, set out to Nigeria to install solar on a local church. We were able to sit down with one of the installers for the project to talk about his experience bringing light to men in a foreign country.

Solar Production – Recently disMAYed

Man… Doesn’t it seem like we have gotten a lot of rain lately?  In fact, from a solar production point of view, it feels like the month of May was a wash – literally!  That is how we felt at Rayah Solar, so we did what we do, we ran an analysis of the past and current solar production.  We compiled the production outputs from our customers and compared the following factors over the last four years; 1) Yearly Outputs, 2) Q1 Outputs, 3) Q2 Outputs, and 4) Month of May Outputs.

Research Overview

Please note, we choose to only use data since 2014 since any prior data did not include panel level monitoring. Yes, we have been using panel level monitoring since 2014!  We were one of the first to do so. Solar systems without panel level data were not chosen because there were too many potential variables. Also, we excluded systems that had inconsistent monitoring data (i.e. internet connection issues, etc).
