SEIA ranked the state fifth in the U.S. for solar deployments and the Grand Canyon State continues to shine with a robust growth pipeline of 7.27 GW of solar projects to be installed over the next five years.
Also on the rise: Fold-out NASA satellite solar array undergoes successful test deployment. Solar-plus-storage microgrids to be deployed in four Bay Area cities. And more.
Exploring California’s energy transition with the help of alternative battery technologies.
Management sees NEM 3.0 changes as a net positive for California and expects strong demand for solar-plus-storage in coming quarters, with installers likely taking another four months of training for integrated systems.
NEM 3.0 takes effect on April 15. For customers who don’t qualify, or don’t get an application submitted in time, developers need to be ready to implement more solar and storage projects down the line.
Also on the rise: U.S. energy storage market set for take off. Solar turns brownfields into green wellsprings. And more.
While NEM 3.0 is expected is to slash the rate paid for solar energy sold back to the grid, batteries can help maintain the value of solar. The next wave of clean technology adoption, however, must seek non-lithium batteries and take advantage of new safe and affordable chemistries.
The Hoosier State has a prohibitive residential PV market with net metering recently phased out, while its utility market enjoys 878.8 MW of new projects.
Senator William Soules has filed SB 77, which states that all new homes must have an EV plug, and requires one watt of solar per square foot of heated home space.
Also on the rise: More hydrogen production coming to California. Wyoming laws seek to kill net metering and EVs. And more.
