In a policy roadmap, New York State undertakes to give utilities and manufacturers every reason to build out clean energy networks. In the energy-buying experience, residents and businesses see few paths to renewable power. How can a state reach its zero-emission goals without first showing consumers lower prices and clearer...
A Massachusetts Senate proposal to set aside funding for solar projects in low-income neighborhoods will do little to improve access without bigger changes to the state’s solar incentive program, advocates say.
Royal Dutch Shell Plc and EDP Renovaveis SA agreed to sell power from a wind farm they’re building in the Atlantic Ocean for a record-low price. The 804-megawatt Mayflower wind farm, located south of Martha’s Vineyard, will supply electricity to utilities in Massachusetts for $58 a megawatt-hour over the life of the contract.
The federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management said its review of the Vineyard Wind offshore wind project would be completed by June 12 and a final decision on the project issued by December 18 — 15 months later than originally projected.
New York’s Long Island Power Authority upped the incentives offered to community solar projects in its territory, providing some concessions to solar developers but ultimately falling short of what the industry said it needed to provide the certainty to finance projects there.
Seven states – Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, South Carolina, and Vermont – have enacted legislation to promote pollinator-friendly solar development. A new white paper by the Clean Energy States Alliance provides an overview of these state efforts and offers suggestions for what other states can do to promote solar while also creating or preserving healthy habitats for pollinators.
Pollinator-friendly solar is taking off across the country, and with the help of this toolkit, it won’t take long to learn what the buzz is all about. This toolkit is intended for solar developers interested in learning what it takes to turn your next solar project into a pollinators’ paradise.
The New York Public Service Commission directed the state's energy development authority to offer additional financial options beyond traditional fixed-price contracts when soliciting bids to build renewable energy projects.
