Text Box: This wind turbine also can be used in combination with photovoltaic elements in solar power production. The rugged design of the AC 1002 wind turbine makes it ideal for use in inland as well as coastal locations. This wind turbine incorporates fewer numbers of moving parts to allow easy maintenance and Text Box: AeroCraft has released specs on the AC 1002 wind turbine. According to the company, this direct drive wind turbine runs quietly and performs well. The AC 1002 wind turbine incorporates 16 poles permanent magnet type of generator with an output of 1000 W and a voltage of 230 V. This generator uses a stainless steel shaft.

Text Box: Sanyo Announces the Most Energy Efficient Solar Panel
Text Box: characterized by high efficiency at high temperatures, and increased output power even during high summertime temperatures. The high conversion efficiency of HIT cells means more capacity can be installed compared to conventional crystalline silicon solar cells.
The new N230 solar cell module is claimed to have an energy conversion efficiency of 20.7 percent, which makes it the most Text Box: efficient solar module produced so far. The unprecedented efficiency was achieved by increasing the number of solar cell tabs from two to three and making each tab thinner. They also applied AG coated glass to the cells, and this reduces the amount of scattering and reflection of light. The increase in energy conversion efficiency could make the solar modules useful in areas with less than ideal amounts of sunshine.
Text Box: Sanyo is a major manufacturer of solar panels, with three factories in Japan, one in Hungary serving Europe, and a fifth in Mexico that serves the US market. The N series of modules are produced in Japan and consist of solar cells of the Hetero-junction with Intrinsic Thin-layer (HIT) type.
HIT solar cells contain a single thin crystalline wafer of silicon surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous layers of silicon. They are Text Box: The high conversion efficiency of HIT cells means more capacity can be installed
