Declare Energy Independence with Solar (Just Shop Around First) — Episode 49 of Local Energy Rules Podcast

The combination of falling prices and rising interest put rooftop solar on a strong trajectory. But even as solar goes mainstream, it’s tough for consumers to tell which installer, which panels, and which financing is right for them. There has been little transparency in solar pricing, and consumers without technical expertise have a tough time shopping around. It’s a barrier […]

Algae as a Biofuel

Algae as a Biofuel

Recently a politician informed me of an energy source I was completely unaware of, algae as a biofuel. I did some more research on it and was amazed to find how much more potential algae has other than any other crop because of it's amazing growth rate and, as a result, much lower cost to produce, even with its problems. Why then is this crop getting so little attention when it alone can replace all of our imports of oil for transportation and heating...? Scott H., Pen Argyl, PA

All eyes on Greece: New feed-in tariff gives boost to PV industry

All eyes on Greece: New feed-in tariff gives boost to PV industry

With a new renewable energy law, impressive targets and a feed-in tariff in place, solar PV could provide electricity to half a million of households in Greece by 2020, according to projections of the European Photovoltaic Industry Association - provided that the right measures are in place to promote it to the end-user. If all goes well, over 65,000 jobs are expected to be created in the PV sector within Greece. Jackie Jones attended the PV MED conference in Athens.
