Good morning and welcome to the pv magazine USA Morning Brief. Today we also bring you a new solar project at a phosphate mining site in Florida, more than 1,000 EV chargers coming to New York, a cool installation video, and more…
Texas regulators have ruled that any renewable generation source connected to the state’s HVAC grid does not have to account for marginal losses, as the market turbulence it would cause isn’t worth the benefit, and it would go against the original spirit of the project.
