Just 313 small rooftop solar projects were completed statewide in Q2 2021, compared to 2,908 a year earlier, as the state remains in a perilous solar incentive limbo.
The two companies led the initial effort to impose tariffs and now claim they have been unable to complete plans to adjust to import competition given the pandemic, alleged “predatory” pricing, and other factors.
The 260 MWdc Brazoria West Solar Project is under construction, with commercial operation planned for 2022.
Also on the rise: Solar capacity additions are recovering from a subdued 2020, utilities ask for 50 MW of solar in West Virginia, and Broad Reach gets a $400 million equity commitment.
The funding commitment comes as Apollo takes a 50% stake in the company from venture capital firm EnCap Energy.
A 2020 bill authorizes electric utilities to own and operate up to 200 MW of renewable energy facilities.
The FERC’s latest data release shows solar led new generating capacity with 8,410 MW added through the first three quarters of 2021.
Lightsource bp and bp placed orders for around 4.4 GWdc of modules, with options for an additional 1 GWdc.
The facility will include a battery recycling building, an office building with laboratories, and a finished goods warehouse.
Developed by a U.S.-based start-up, the new manufacturing process is claimed to reduce silver consumption and improve solar module performance by up to 3 W. It consists of connecting sub-cells in series within a single cell in order to increase the device voltage and without requiring cells to be physically broken and rewired.
A report by Lux Research forecasts growing demand for lithium-ion battery recycling capacity, along with a need for innovation to meet that demand.
