Impending changes to net metering policies and utility rates could drastically reduce the value of solar bill savings for commercial ratepayers in California. For affordable housing properties, the changes could translate into a 50 percent loss in solar savings.
Prior to launching a nationwide Feed-in tariff (FIT) program in 2019, Japan implemented various solar incentive schemes, including a Surplus PV generation Purchase program from residential solar photovoltaic (PV) owners. The Japanese government launched this program in fall 2009 and required the nation’s large investor-owned utilities (IOUs) to purchase excess electricity from PV systems (below 10 kW) owned by homeowners […]
It was another rough week for China's once booming solar manufacturers, who are already reeling from overcapacity and major subsidy drawbacks in the European market.
There are hundreds of resilient solar+storage projects now in development or deployed in the U.S., as more companies and consumers become aware of the benefits that solar+storage systems can offer. Unfortunately, very few community-based organizations have the internal capacity to move solar+storage projects forward or to advocate for
When large numbers of small PV systems are installed on buildings in urban areas and then left for untrained occupants to operate with no professional support, there are risks that poor performance may not be picked up. Donna Munro takes a look at the lessons learned from large projects installed in the past.
The simplest things often stand in the way of progress. A case in point is energy data and battery storage. For utility customers to understand how batteries could lower their electric bills, they need to understand how their building uses energy throughout the day. But in many places across the country, it’s extremely difficult, if not impossible for customers to get access to that basic information. In many cases, utilities don’t even have the data. When the data is available, it can be time consuming or costly to retrieve.
GRID Alternatives is a national 501(c)(3) certified non-profit organization that facilitates solar power implementation and energy efficiency projects between community partners, volunteers and job trainees.
Time is the primary difference between a fad and a trend. Fads are fleeting. Trends develop over time altering behavior in some relatively permanent fashion. The adverb relatively is used as permanence has become, over time, far less permanent. Fads ebb and flow more quickly than trends. The best way to tell the difference, unfortunately, is in hindsight.
Under current utility rate tariffs in California, solar plus energy storage could all but eliminate electric bills for the owners of affordable housing properties, according to a new report.
Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition is widening access to the solar power market for people who rent their homes in a move to boost green power’s expansion in an election year.
