As Western and Southeastern utilities process 194 GW of solar interconnection requests, we asked 20 of them about the final cost studies they completed last year, which would permit projects to move forward. Then we turned to Berkeley Lab analyses for more insights.
The 50MW solar project will use 20MW/80MWh battery energy storage.
Also on the rise: Renewables forecast to provide 50% of power capacity in the U.S. by 2050. A close analysis of the new distributed solar policy in New York reveals just what it will cost residents. Appalachian Power reveals short-term energy plan in keeping with Virginia Clean Economy Act. New Mexico community solar act to be finalized in April.
The New Mexico Community Solar Act is expected to be finalized in April.
The merger, which received approval from five federal agencies and the Public Utility Commission of Texas, is intended to accelerate New Mexico’s clean energy future.
The Bureau of Land Management is soliciting proposals for solar development on nearly 90,000 acres of public land located across Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico.
While federal policy action (or inaction) grabs all the headlines, let’s look back at some of the most impactful state and local developments from 2021.
About 1,400 square miles of public land could be leased by the federal government for solar development, which would effectively double U.S. installed capacity. The Bureau of Land Management took a first step, approving 465 MW solar, 400 MW storage in California across two projects.
Rocket Lab has acquired space solar cell maker Solaero for $80 million. The latter operates an 11,000m2 manufacturing facility in New Mexico and produces multi-junction cells with efficiencies ranging from 29.4% to 32%.
The 300 MWAC solar and 150 MWAC/600 MWh battery energy storage system facility is being build in northwestern New Mexico.
