[email protected] on Solar PV: SolarWorld, Sunpower, DERs and Utilities

Jenn Runyon, Chief Editor of Renewable Energy World and Paula Mints, Chief Market Research Analyst with SPV Market Research discuss three hot topics in the global solar industry for three minutes each. 

Today’s topics include the news that Sunpower is going to buy SolarWorld and how that will affect Sunpower’s influence in the global solar industry. Hint: it has to do with the solar tariffs. We’ll also delve into the “utility of the future” and discuss some interesting news about a new law in Hawaii that will force utilities to completely change their business models going forward.
