Hello friends and welcome to the pvMB. Today we’ve got the nation’s 11th-largest school district going solar, Pegasus expanding their holdings, a new solar design and pricing tool and more!
Hello wonderful Tuesday readers and welcome to the pvMB!
Nevada regulators have approved the utility’s latest integrated resource plan, which includes a gargantuan trio of solar projects and accompanying storage set to come to Clark County.
Hello wonderful people, happy Monday and welcome to the pvMB!
The good news is that the world’s largest fund manager, BlackRock, just closed $1 billion of a record $2.5 billion fund dedicated to solar, wind, and energy storage projects. The bad news is that the $2.5 billion fund is a tiny fraction of BlackRock’s $6.96 trillion balance sheet and small change compared to BlackRock’s $17.5 billion investment in coal.
Alta’s COO: “An agreement has been reached between Alta Devices and Hanergy to allow Alta to bring in outside investors to breathe new life into the company, and to get the thin film GaAs technology leader back on track.”
Federal regulators upheld the bifacial solar module import tariff as a public good, and potential protector of irreparable harm against solar developers. Concurrently, the trade courts reviewed the solar module import tariff as a whole, with some groups stating module manufacturing showed success, while solar cell manufacturing hasn’t been helped.
You’re busy, so we keep it simple – only the hardware here folks! Los Angeles simplified its installation requirements, solar+storage install in Vermont, solar walking shoes that spread the force to 1/10th allowable weight, Trina setting bifacial poly records, and polysilicon pricing at the floor!
LG Chem and GM have announced an agreement to build a 30 GWh EV battery factory in Lordstown, Ohio which will employ 1,100 people and come online in 2023.
Soltec single axis tracker research shows greater production in a two-in-portrait configuration versus a single module by just over 2%, driven mostly by lower module temperatures as well hardware design adjustments.
A group of organizations representing Southeastern rate payers are arguing against proposed changes to PURPA by FERC, noting – among other items – that long term contracts at fixed, publicly available pricing is necessary to fight against the monopoly power of local utilities.
11 Senators have signed a letter sent to FERC chair Neil Chatterjee with grave words in reference to the threat posed to the nation’s energy infrastructure by the use of equipment manufactured by Huawei.
Hello and happy Hump Day to all of you wonderful readers. Today we have Solar FlexRack supplying a 105 MW project, Northwestern Energy simultaneously adding coal and promising to cut carbon and more!
In this episode of SunCast, Nico talks with Tim Effio, head of Latam & Caribbean markets for Fluence on the macro and micro implications of Solar + Storage and its integration into emerging markets.
State regulators have decided on rates to determine the compensation values for 15-year Transition Renewable Energy Certificates, which serve as the midpoint in the state’s transition away from legacy Solar Renewable Energy Certificates.
A report from US research labs shows natural gas as the leading reason wholesale electricity pricing has fallen over the last decade across the country, however, looking at key markets it is clear there are larger downward effects where wind and solar have been most heavily deployed.
National Renewable Energy Lab researchers hourly modeled the whole of the United States, and when more than half of all electricity is coming from solar power, there would be no technical deal killers, but many spring days with free electricity that we would have to learn to use, and a need to financially recognize the predictability and grid stabilizing attributes of solar and storage.
With wide adoption of electric vehicles and heat pumps, Colorado’s least-cost grid would reach 21 GW of solar capacity, 12 GW of wind, and 7 GW of storage by 2040, while electric rates would decline. These modeling results apply to other states as well.
Seven early-stage solar manufacturing firms have won U.S. Department of Energy grants to develop prototypes, which they could use to help attract private investment. DOE’s 21 PV research and development grants may hold more interest for established manufacturers.
Scientists at Princeton have found solar and wind energy offer the added environmental benefit of reducing water usage, by comparison with hydroelectric dams. Their findings, say the researchers, could have a positive impact on groundwater sustainability in drought-prone regions such as California, where they conducted a case study.
