'Residential solar is a disruptive technology that is changing the world,' said Derek Landino, district manager for a solar installation company that has recently set up shop in Marlboro. 'There is now a renewable energy source that can actually save customers money.'
To Mr. Landino, it's what makes green technology, particularly solar power, so compelling — to him, and to his growing customer base.
Recurrent Energy is to build 150MW of grid-competitive solar in Texas.
The company has arranged a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Austin Energy. It will feed into the unregulated Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) grid, which supplies 75% of the state.
A manufacturer of renewable energy equipment has found a formula to get its employees to save energy: a $6,000 annual bonus, offset with a carbon tax.
David Blittersdorf, CEO at AllEarth Renewables, said he has long tried to walk the talk as a maker of renewable energy equipment. In 2011, he proposed a car tax on his 31 employees, but some balked and helped brainstorm another solution.
Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), released the following statement today concerning efforts to expand the use of solar energy nationwide by using real estate investment trusts (REITs) as a source of funding for clean energy projects

No fewer than two in three Americans want the U.S. to put more emphasis on producing domestic energy using solar power (76%), wind (71%), and natural gas (65%). Far fewer want to emphasize the production of oil (46%) and the use of nuclear power (37%). Least favored is coal, with about one in three Americans wanting to prioritize its domestic production.
The Japanese maker of flash-memory chips, elevators and nuclear reactors, will enter the solar power generation business through projects with combined capacity of 6.5 megawatts.
The U.S. Department of Energy announced the launch of a new initiative today meant to strengthen American clean energy manufacturing and enhance U.S. competitiveness.
Most of the attention may be focused on domestic oil and gas production, but it could be solar power that really helps the United States on its path to energy independence.
