Welcome to today’s pv magazine USA morning brief and thanks for spending your morning with us. Today we’re looking at English researchers’ development of a solar flag, two community solar projects in Illinois under fire, University of Northern Iowa’s new group-buy program and everything else on our solar slate. Let’s ride!
While U.S. Senators Markey and AOC introduce a resolution for the Green New Deal, legislation has been introduced in six states to implement 80-100% clean energy by at least 2050.
In the previously middling Midwest, local authorities have approved two solar projects totaling 340 MW in Illinois and Michigan, each of which is larger than anything put online to date in these states.
The company has partnered with Pivot Energy to provide 2.7 MW of capacity over 23 Colorado and Illinois locations.
The developer and asset manager have signed a deal to develop 2 GWac of solar projects in six Midwestern states – more than the entire capacity that is currently online in those states. But this appears to only the beginning for the region.
A new analysis by Wood Mackenzie Power and Renewables finds that the renewable energy and climate ambitions of governors elected on November 6 could increase the total market for solar in five states by 17.7 GWac, if all five pass 50% by 2030 mandates.
ComEd, Illinois subsidiary of Exelon, posts a Hosting Capacity Map showing solar potential based on infrastructure capabilities on a local basis.
Governors-elect in Colorado and Connecticut want a 100% renewables mandate. Approaching 100% is the goal for governors-elect in Illinois, Nevada and Maine.
Upon ousting a Republican incumbent governor, winning all state-wide offices and increasing their majorities in the General Assembly, Illinois Democrats are expected to keep solar progress going.
The new governors favor policies such as a higher renewables mandate, community solar, increased use of storage, and expanding the Western grid, reports the nonprofit Advanced Energy Economy.
