Sunny Solar Times Continue…


The solar innovations continue, with creating solar powered battery backed microgrids, and using otherwise useless contaminated land for solar utilities.

Global solar roundup: India experiences solar growing pains; Germany evolves beyond a guaranteed market price for solar power; during 2014’s 1st quarter, the UK installs 1+ gigawatts of solar capacity, while Chile installs a record-breaking 150 megawatts, with plenty more planned.

Solar power accounted for 22% of new US generation capacity in 2013. Worldwide, the cheap cost of solar power is driving the growth of renewables, says a UN study.

Finally, the cheap price of subsidized US natural gas is tempering clean energy investments, but as solar technology gets cheaper, investments are going further, and capital keeps pouring into the booming US residential solar market. Let the good times roll…

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
