Listen Up: What Legal Issues Do Solar Contractors Face?
As in most industries, attorneys are an indispensable part of doing business. We have the usual host of "ordinary course of business" legal issues such as contracts, employment law, financing and M&A. But we also must comply with a blizzard of regulatory and incentives requirements ? as well as more specialized transaction issues related to solar leases and PPAs, warranties, insurance, licensing and manufacturing.
Building-Integrated Solar Air Heating Systems Proving Popular
For some parts of the United States, such as Upper Michigan, the winter of 2013-14 was the coldest in recorded history. In Marquette, for example, the average temperature was a tundra-like 7.5 degrees. Well, what if I told you that it?s possible to cut your building?s energy use (in some cases by up to half), while protecting the environment, too?
China Solar: New Yingli Fund Evokes Shades of Suntech Failings
I wrote earlier this week about troublesome signs for the solar panel sector?s fledgling recovery after a revenue warning from Trina (NYSE: TSL), and now we?re seeing another worrisome signal with news that Yingli (NYSE: YGE) is launching a new fund to build solar power plants. This kind of scheme looks eerily similar to one that kicked off the dow
SolarCity Resumes Storage Applications After California Decision
SolarCity Corp., the largest U.S. solar-power provider by market value, will resume applications to connect energy-storage systems in California after regulators said they?re exempt from utility fees.
Examining the Challenges Faced by the CSP Industry
Pragmatic discussions about the financial viability of concentrated solar power (CSP) abound. The oft-dismissed redheaded step child of the solar industry, CSP?s relegation to the recycle heap of history is seen by many to be a foregone conclusion due to its inherently high cost. But is CSP destined to play Betamax to PV?s VHS? Or will foreign countries like Spain ? which presently boasts one of the highest numbers of CSP plants in the world ? demonstrate that CSP?s ability to be coupled with storage makes it an alternative energy worth pursuing? Let?s examine some of the inherent challenges faced by the proverbial underdog of the renewable energy world.
Crowdfunding Solar with a Twist ? A Revolving Fund to Serve Communities
According to Bloomberg News last week, crowdfunding solar could become a $5 billion investment vehicle in the next 5 years. This exciting development will connect people who want to invest their money responsibly with solar projects that need financing. SolarCity, the biggest U.S. solar power provider by market value, is getting into the space pr
Utility Nightmares: Distributed Generation and Halving Electricity Consumption
While many utility executives attribute much of their predicted market challenges to the rise of photovoltaics and net metering, they actually have much more to worry about.
Clean Energy Investment Rises 9 Percent, Led by Solar-Power Demand
Clean energy investment rose by 9 percent in the first quarter from a year earlier on surging demand for rooftop solar panels from the U.S. to Japan.
How One State?s Net Metering Expansion Offers a Model to the Nation
While battles rage with utilities taking on both solar customers and businesses around the country, Vermont has quietly expanded its net metering program by nearly four-times without so much as a skirmish. Net metering gives renewable energy customers full, fair credit on their utility bills for the excess clean power they deliver to the grid. Verm
An Enormous Question for ?Solar Choice?
Two weeks ago, Minnesota?s Public Utilities Commission ratified the first-ever statewide policy for setting a fair and transparent price on solar energy. This week, a coalition of companies that provide leasing contracts for solar to home and business customers declared war on this ?value of solar? policy, and pretty much every financial model for
CEO of German Utility RWE Says It Should Have Invested in Renewable Energy So...
What?s a beleaguered utility to do when forced by the government to close its profitable nuclear power plants?
Distributed Generation Shines in Thailand
Electricity generation today is moving towards a more decentralised model where generation is close to demand. Possible benefits are diminished transmission and distribution losses and investments, improved energy efficiency, and increased security of supply. Implementing a large central power plant is extremely challenging in terms of site availability, as well as public concern about environmental issues.
Massachusetts Finalizes SREC-II Program: Here's What You Can Expect
On April 11th, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) announced that they have now filed the final revisions for the SREC-II program with the Secretary of State?s office. These final revisions will go into effect on April 25, 2014 once the rules have been promulgated. To qualify for SREC-I, all systems less than 100 kW must both s
When Renewables Meet the Oil and Gas Industry, Opposites Attract
At first glance, pairing renewable energy with the oil and gas sector would seem an unlikely match. But behind the curtain, romance could be blooming.
Trina Warning Foreshadows China's Solar Gloom
After watching their shares and prospects soar over the past year, solar stocks are suddenly hitting a cloudy patch as investors anxiously wait for most companies to return to the profit column following a two-year sector downturn. That wait may have just gotten a lot longer, following a warning from Trina Solar(NYSE: TSL) that it will fall far sho
