Start-up sees new dawn for old solar tech

Start-up sees new dawn for old solar tech

[The New York Times] David Slawson is an unabashed granola-crunching, tree-hugging New Age apostle whose livelihood rests on matriculating massage therapists to his alternative health care college in Portland, Ore. Yet he’s also the chief executive of a Phoenix-based start-up that’s raised $20 million to parlay a quirky, early-19th-century engine design repeatedly discarded as antiquated, most recently by aerospace company […]
A New Way To Finance Solar and Storage: The LOPPA

A New Way To Finance Solar and Storage: The LOPPA

Solar and energy storage will increasingly be integrated together at commercial sites, homes and microgrids. But to be honest, they are an odd couple with very different personalities. Solar is passive: solar modules are typically planted in a fixed position to generate power for 20 or 30 years. You have to hose them off occasionally, but active maintenance and management […]

Solar Granted a Major Victory in Energy Bill

Solar Granted a Major Victory in Energy Bill

After years of effort, lawmakers on Capitol Hill finally agreed upon a vast package of federal energy legislation. For the average American, there are few, if any, items in the cavernous bill that will have an immediate and measurable impact on their lives. The first ever residential tax credit for solar energy in the past two decades, however, is chief among them.
Tax Reform and Community Based Renewable Energy

Tax Reform and Community Based Renewable Energy

The federal tax credits for renewable energy have been a major barrier to widespread ownership of renewable energy. The production tax credit, for example, can only be taken against passive income, a type of income that very few of us actually earn. Accelerated depreciation or investment tax credits can be taken against ordinary income – slightly better – but again the credit provides more benefit the higher one's tax bracket and the more tax liability one has. The overhead costs in aggregating sufficient tax equity to finance wind and solar projects have proven very high. Nevertheless, to date the industry has grown rapidly based on this inefficient and cumbersome arrangement.
