It's a good thing ESPN doesn't cover federal energy policy. SportsCenter fans like to tune in to the previous day's 10 most exciting plays: At-the-buzzer half-court shots, walk-off home runs, hail Mary passes.

The late August round of bids for utility-scale solar power projects in China yielded a new milestone in the economics of solar power in China: a sub-Yuan/kWh price for solar power. To achieve this impressive number, the Chinese government has used the state-owned sector (and particularly enterprises under the direct control of the central government) to help subsidize the price of solar power, to the point where the economics appear to be unsustainable.

PV and ME Question: Are Solar People Clean and Green or Dirty Hypocrites? Call it the green gospel according to the reborn Solarites. In the religion of solar, the earth, blessed by the sun, is a paradise to be saved, a dogma these disciples of photons will gladly shout from the deepest desert solar farm to the highest mountainside off-grid PV system. But just […]
