Wind and Solar company Juhl Energy on Thursday announced that it had acquired solar power component distribution startup PV Power Inc for an undisclosed sum.
Juhl, which had previously dealt exclusively in wind farms, is diversifying its portfolio to include a greater concentration of solar properties. Juhl CEO Dan Juhl said he believes there is “significant growth and opportunity” in solar as prices drop and techology improves.
Juhl and PV will together launch a full line of prepackaged solar power systems for consumers and small businesses.
How to Profit from Natural Gas Shortages
Our reliance on natural gas has grown massively over the last twenty years. Though it’s still a long, long way from offsetting coal as our primary energy source, it’s a distant second place. But our transport system for natural gas is weak, and demands are high in regions like New England. The result is higher prices. But don’t fret, this means there are loads of opportunities in other energy industries to offset a natural gas crunch.
