Here’s this week’s gigawatt of big solar project news.
Even four years of the most pro-coal president in recent memory has done little to change coal’s misfortunes.
The Covid-19 pandemic continues to cast a cloud on industries around the world, but the U.S. utility-scale solar segment is still growing. Around 3 GW of solar PV is set to be installed this year in Texas alone, but opportunities also abound across several other southern U.S. states.
Texas is perfect for big solar and is one of the fastest growing solar energy markets in the country. Although the state has no renewable portfolio standard, it has Texas sun, lots of land and a competitive energy-only marketplace. Here’s our evolving list of the big Texas solar projects.
The summer of battery storage rolls on, with zinc hybrid cathode technology now announcing massive development news.
The 1.1-GWdc Misae comes equipped with Texas brio in the person of Dr. Miguel Alejandro Oneto, a radiologist by training and solar developer by calling. He’s developing the massive project in the Texas panhandle along with LAE American Energy.
Also in the brief: The U.S. Energy Storage Association aims to have 100 GW of new energy storage deployed in the U.S. by the end of this decade, also — thousands allowed to bypass environmental rules in pandemic.
With two projects clocking in at 100 MW each, the Texas storage market is demonstrating that California isn’t the only state that can do big batteries.
Also in the brief: Recurrent Energy has begun construction on the 144 MW Pflugerville solar project, Ion Energy chosen by EsVolta to improve the operational efficiency of its utility scale battery energy storage
This week’s big solar roundup has a distinct Texas flavor. The number of large solar projects is increasing in the U.S. — and pv magazine is keeping track.
