Clean Energy States Alliance Launches Major Initiative to Advance Solar in Under-Resourced Communities
US Department of Energy Funds CESA’s Efforts to Scale Up Solar for Low-and Moderate-Income Households
As the cost of renewable energy continues to drop, “going solar” becomes a viable option for more New Jerseyans.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) voted this week to uphold its landmark Order 841, which states that the nation’s electric grid operators (RTOs and ISOs) must allow energy storage resources fair and equal access to provide services in regional wholesale energy markets. The order is anticipated to provide important new market opportunities to energy…
When Massachusetts took the nation-leading step of integrating energy storage into its energy efficiency plan this year, it didn’t just add a new technology. It consummated a decade-long, slow-motion embrace of an important new form of efficiency. Up until now, efficiency in the electricity sector has meant using fewer electrons. This is a good and…
Massachusetts becomes first in the nation to make battery storage eligible for energy efficiency incentives
Energy storage has been the coming thing for years. Now, it’s arrived – as an efficiency measure. At the end of January, the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU) approved the state’s new three-year energy efficiency plan. For the first time, and with analytical support from CEG, it includes behind-the-meter battery storage. There’s a lot…
In December 2016, Rhode Island became home to North America’s first offshore wind farm with the successful installation and operation of the 30 MW Block Island Wind Farm.
Massachusetts’ Advancing Commonwealth Energy Storage (ACES) grant program was created to jump-start the energy storage industry by piloting innovative, broadly-replicable demonstration projects with multiple value streams, thereby priming Massachusetts for increased commercialization and deployment.
The MPRB Solar Demonstration Project, supported by Xcel’s Energy Renewable Energy Development Fund, installed 200 kW of solar PV in the Minneapolis parks system to model the incorporation of renewable energy into public amenities.
Connecticut Green Bank and PosiGen “Solar for All” Partnership – Bringing the Benefits of Clean Energy to LMI Communities
Connecticut’s Solar for All program addresses many of the key barriers to going solar for low-and-moderate income communities and households, including access to financing, real and perceived credit-quality issues, inability to fully realize public incentives, education gaps, and contractors’ customer acquisition strategies.
