华盛顿特区 —— 随着与中国太阳能贸易战的进一步升级，美国商务部于当地时间7月25日决定将对从中国进口的太阳能电池组件加收新的反倾销关税，并且第一次将关税范围扩大至台湾生产的电池片。商务部宣布将立即开始向中国和台湾的输美光伏产品征收反倾销税，额度分别为对中国大部分制造商征收26.33%至58.87%，向台湾制造商征收27.59%至44.18%的反倾销关税。美国太阳能行业协会总裁兼首席执行官罗纳•雷希对商务部的此次反倾销初裁决定表示强烈地谴责。

Helen Livingston's family has owned a 300-acre farm near Maxton for generations. Now 45 acres of the land is covered with more than 26,000 dark solar panels, making it part of a growing movement to harvest electricity from the sun.
Solar farms like Livingston's are cropping up all over North Carolina, shining rays of hope on economically depressed areas by bringing jobs, a constant stream of revenue and the potential to attract eco-friendly industry and economic investment.
Delaware residents are embracing a program that allows homeowners to lease solar panels without making large upfront investments in the technology, the company that offers the service is reporting.
SolarCity, which formally entered Delaware in February when it opened a warehouse in this state, recently has made a push on the East Coast to expand its business model of placing its solar panels on customers’ homes, generating electricity that leads to lower customer utility bills.
It is no coincidence that companies like Innovative Solar Systems have expanded and are now primarily only developing and building solar farm projects that are over 20MW in size. By increasing the size of these solar farm projects in the U.S many things happen: the cost to lease the land goes down, the cost of the equipment is less and of course the labor to construct and build these massive solar farm projects are much less. Softer costs like legal, environmental studies and engineering can also be less if spread over the entire size of the project.
Give or take a few hazy mornings or dust storm-influenced afternoons, the sun shines in Phoenix more than 300 days a year. That’s been one of the consistent selling points on why the Valley — and the state of Arizona overall — should be the center of the universe of the solar industry.
Reality, though, indicates something a lot different.
We spoke to Tom Kimbis, vice president of executive affairs for the Solar Energy Industries Association.
Massachusetts’ second-in-the-nation ranking in clean technology is a tribute to the green energy policies the state has implemented and encouraged over the last several years. As environmental concerns grow along with the perils of global warming, those policies will pay greater dividends -- as long as the state doesn’t stray from that path.
Thanks for joining us. I'm Diane Rehm. America's domestic oil production is soaring. Producers of U.S. natural gas are gearing up to become exporters. While these supply upticks will boost GDP in the next few years, the promise of a low carbon future remains elusive.
Republican Gov. Pat McCrory endorsed solar energy – and the incentive policies that support solar and other renewables – in a public show of support for programs that some lawmakers in his own party have vowed to dismantle.
The US unseated China as the most attractive country for renewable energy investment in 2012, according to Ernst & Young’s (E&Y) May 2013 “Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index” (RECAI), which, for the 10th year running, “ranks 40 countries on the attractiveness of their renewable energy investment and deployment opportunities based on a number of macro, energy market, and technology-specific indicators.”

Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell has announced the approval of two major solar energy projects: the 350 MW Midland Solar Energy Project in Nevada and the 100 MW Quartzsite Solar Energy Project in Arizona. She says the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) also approved the 70 MW New York Canyon Geothermal Project in Nevada.
