Skyline Solar is industrializing a new class of silicon based solar photovoltaic power systems which produces highly scalable power for commercial, industrial and utility-scale deployments. The company has private investors and has prototypes on sun generating power today.

Currently we are not actively recruiting but if you are interested in working with us, don‘t hesitate to send your CV to our email address with a subject line “Job application”. Does your position matter? Not really. Maybe you want to work on research, in the IT department, in Sales or installing solar panels, feel free to write us.
While we cannot promise that we will be able to accept every application, we do look forward to hearing from each and every one of you. Especially with the current plans to expand to three more states in the US and possible Canada.We are always looking for enthusiastic, hard-working, honest, ambitious employees.
And while we as a company prefer people that have experience working in the field, we do seriously consider applicants event without serious experience in the field.
We are working with several companies that are researching solar energy on publishing a whitepaper on all of the analysis, results, hypothesis, etc.
It will be called Solar Energy White Paper: All You Need to Know About Solar in 2016.
We are planning to publish It in the beginning of Q4 2016 but naturally not everything depends solely on us.
That would be our third published White paper on renewable energy with previous two being published in 2011 and 2014.
No, we don’t need so much research because the jury on solar energy is still out. It’s clear for decades now that solar energy is extremely cheap, clean, and sustainable.
They are not as dangerous as nuclear energy, or as unhealthy as coal. Nevertheless, the constant studies are required because new technologies give ways to more effective solar panels and as a result, statistics change.
Here’s what’s interesting. UK is not known for its sunny days. And yet, right now they are among the leading countries in replacing coal to renewable energy sources like solar. This process has still a lot to go but recently UK has reached a symbolic milestone. For the first time for 24 hours solar energy usage surpassed coal. It only proves how clinical is the decline of coal usage during the last three decades with the couple of last years being crucial. While coal factories continue to close down, reportedly solar energy has reached 17% of UK’s overall 90GW of produced electricity.
These trends are likely to continue as they are already showing great results. In 2015 UK’s gas emissions were reduced by 4%, solar energy technologies improve constantly making it almost the cheapest types of energy to harness. Overall, during the last quarter renewable energy has surpassed coal which now only accounts for 8% of UK-produced electricity.
It’s worth to mention, that so far a huge part for embracing solar energy goes to businesses but there is no doubt that in upcoming years solar energy will become more affordable for families. Especially if government keep their part of the bargain – to eliminate coal energy in UK by 2025.
Would you like to start using the sun for your own energy purposes? While we would still advice to using professionals to install a solar panel if you plan to use it 24/7, 365 days a year, if you want to see how solar energy works, testing out the technology is really easy. And cheap.
Building your own solar panel to produce energy is something you could do as a weekend project if you’re handy but it may take a bit longer if these kind of projects are not something you do often. There are a few ways you can make a solar panel but basically, you will first need to build a panel.
The panel can be metal or wood-framed, the former will be more expensive, harder to work with but the latter will last you less due to effects of the weather. You will also need two glass sheets to frame your solar panels.
Now, the energy-part of your panel can be made from soda cans but for a better quality panel, you’ll need 28x 3,1 Wp solar cells, a junction box, a terminal block, heat shrink tubing and a couple of other things. In total it will come down to $500 per solar panel.
You can find all of the necessary instructions on our website. To be fair, it’s not that hard if you follow every instruction carefully but if something is not completely clear, you can always send us your questions.
