Wind + solar make up more than 20% of generation in 10 states – more on the way

A recent analysis from the U.S. Department of Energy shows the Midwest and Plains States in the lead, but the coasts are on a track to catch up thanks to mandates.

The shift is on: CPS Energy breaks ground on its first storage + solar project in Texas

The unique project will match Texas’ largest previous battery storage project to address the difference between peak generation and peak demand.

Five Texas munis partner to add 500 MW of solar

The projects would be a first for all but one of these utilities, as publicly-owned power companies continue to lead Texas’ solar charge.

$170 million of solar power coming to East Texas

Australian real estate developer Lendlease is pushing forward on a 200 MW solar power project. No electricity off taker has been noted, but the project has secured town approval and a tax abatement.

Clean energy versus gas

Solar and energy storage, either on their own or as part of clean energy portfolios, are showing that they can compete with natural gas in the United States. But will regulators wake up to this reality before half a trillion dollars worth of future stranded assets are built?

Europeans break ground in Texas and Utah on 300 MW of solar power

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners have started construction on their Misae and Sage solar power projects, located in Texas and Utah and sized 240 MW-AC and 58 MW-AC, respectively.

Texas is going green: 86% of future capacity solar or wind, zero coal

ERCOT’s pipeline of projects has ballooned to almost 80 GW. 12 GW of this is gas and the rest is wind and solar power plants, as well as 522 MW of energy storage.

Inverter makers plan alternatives to avoid potential 25% tariffs

Several inverter makers could be hit by the Trump Administration’s move to increase tariffs on imports including inverters from China, but many are already shifting manufacturing to other locations.

11 GW of Texas solar would complement existing wind power

A study by UT-Austin finds that 11 GW of solar power in Texas would be the optimal capacity to complement the state’s existing wind generation in meeting electricity demand throughout the year. While the results reflect a carbon price scenario, they may still provide near-term guidance.

Texas power grid begging for solar power

ERCOT has set mid-day demand records, while aiming for pricing maximums over the past week as summer heat broke state records – all of which creates tremendous opportunities for solar.
