Jurupa Unified School District and Chevron Energy Solutions today announced the completion of a 2.7 megawatt solar and energy efficiency program expected to reduce energy costs at 27 school sites and save the District more than $34 million. The project added solar photovoltaic panels mounted on parking and shade structures at nine campuses. Coupled with comprehensive energy education curriculum content, the transformative program is designed to inspire students to learn about – and experience – clean energy technologies and concepts.

When people think of ideal locations for concentrating solar power, they generally envision remote and dry deserts, like the Southwest. But with its Martin Solar Energy Center, Florida Power & Light (FPL) has shown that CSP can work in a humid and cloudy climate. Will that success bring more of the technology to the Southeast?
Today, the Democratic Party released its 2012 National Platform in Charlotte, N.C., at the Democratic National Convention. Rhone Resch, President and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the national trade association for the U.S. solar industry, issued the following statement in response to the document’s call for an “All-of-the-Above Energy Policy.”
Over the past several years thousands of megawatts of renewable energy projects have been approved for construction on both public and private lands in California. The main development areas have been the Mojave Desert and Carrizo Plain areas of the state. But another region of California with great potential — the San Joaquin Valley — is still largely undeveloped, awaiting a commitment from state planners and regulators to prioritize the building of the transmission line needed to make development in this area feasible.
The Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti will be hosting a ribbon-cutting reception Wednesday to celebrate the completion and launch of its $250,000 “Green Brewery Project.”
AnnArbor.com previously reported that with the installation of nearly $345,000 worth of energy-efficient devices and systems, the Arbor Brewing Company and the Corner Brewery, became Michigan’s first solar breweries.
JUST a few years ago, the future of renewable energy looked as bright and shiny as a white turbine blade coming out of the mold.
Almost 87 percent of North Carolinians would support legislation that allowed them to buy electricity produced by clean renewable resource from power companies other than their local utilities, according to a new poll.
Politicians on all sides of the nation's energy debate can find things to ponder in a new poll that suggests Americans are inclined to develop natural gas resources and build a disputed oil pipeline from Canada, but also want the government to support renewable energy.
While large solar farms are cropping up in the area, smaller projects for homes and businesses are also becoming more common.
If the United States is to pursue an "all of the above" energy policy, Colorado will be the model for the nation, said Gov. John Hickenlooper, speaking Tuesday at the Global New Energy Summit at The Broadmoor.
