This rapid decrease in cost of solar is helping India reach its 2022 target to produce enough solar electricity to power more than 60 million homes.
2016 was a good year for global solar energy adoption and installation. We saw a progressive Canadian industry and a record-breaking U.S industry as well.
I am raising a major concern within the renewable energy sector, the lack of forceful pushfulness in support for renewables.
There is increasing interest from Ontario electricity customers for energy storage technologies—specifically residential solar+storage.
The Canadian province of Ontario’s solar sector has seen significant continued growth in investments—year over year—since 2001. Canada benefits from this growth, which has placed the country as a global solar energy leader with regards to total installed solar photovoltaic capacity.
Liberals won the Canadian elections with a landslide victory last October 2015. Does this mean a comeback for the Canadian Clean Energy Sector? How has Trudeau been fairing thus far?
For the average homeowner, there’s more benefit to going solar than ever before. But most people still find the whole idea too intimidating to take action. That’s where Mapdwell, a spin-off company from MIT that is creating incredibly detailed maps of the solar potential for each and every building in various cities, comes in.
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a 30% federal tax credit for solar systems on residential and commercial properties in the U.S. that, under current law, remains in effect through December 31, 2016. The final vote count to determine its extension is not in, but industry reaction has been jubilant for the most part and the stock market has responded positively. Ethan Desota of Ethosolar—provides a perspective on the importance of this credit—as an incentive to the U.S. solar industry’s growth.
