Will Solar Energy Plummet if the Investment Tax Credit Fades Away?

Wall Street Journal:  Many supporters say the abrupt end date of the 30% credit represents a “cliff” for the industry. Without the current incentive, they argue, installation of solar-power systems will plummet, and thousands of jobs in the industry will be lost as a result.

Others, however, argue that the cliff isn’t as steep as it appears, and that solar will continue to grow even without the 30% credit—albeit not as quickly as before.

Amit Ronen, director of the GW Solar Institute and a professor at the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy at George Washington University, argues that the end of the 30% credit will send solar off a cliff. John Farrell, director of the Democratic Energy initiative at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, says the impact of the tax credit is overstated and the solar market will continue to rise.  Full Article:

Excellent Photovoltaic system Installer training arranged by Institute of Solar Technology

The sun provides a tremendous resource for generating clean and sustainable electricity without toxic pollution or global warming emissions. The potential environmental impacts associated with solar power - land use and habitat loss, water use, and the use of hazardous materials in manufacturing - can vary greatly depending on the technology, which includes two broad categories: photovoltaic (PV) solar cell.

Large solar projects can be done responsibly

BY SHANNON EDDY, Special to The Bee: As the seventh-largest economy in the world and a clean-energy leader, California plays a key role in shaping the global response to climate change. The benefits of our leadership will be on the world stage later this month during the international climate talks in Paris.

Over several decades, California has successfully advanced the development of renewable energy resources. As a result, the state boasts the highest concentration of solar projects in the nation, including several of the world’s largest. Large-scale solar power plants are enabling California to meet the goals of reducing carbon emissions to 1990 levels by 2020 and generating 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030.

As with any fast-growing, successful industry, it’s essential to ask questions about unintended consequences. We agree it is important to evaluate how the environmental benefits of large-scale solar – carbon reduction, reduced water use and improved local air quality – compare to any negative consequences for people and the environment.  Cont'd...

Canadian Solar Supplies Modules for 2.5 MW Solar Facility in El Salvador

AES Moncagua is the second renewable generation project built by AES in El Salvador under a vision of environmental sustainability and energy diversification.

Boralex adds 52 MW to its Canadian portfolio

Located in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region in Canada, with an installed capacity of 51.7 MW.

Given market constraints, reducing wind measurement uncertainty at higher hub heights is crucial for the integration of taller, higher capacity turbines

More efficient turbines depend on the ability of developers to accurately assess the wind resource at higher hub heights.
