Nichola Groom, Reuters: Tesla's SolarCity reported a drop of nearly 40 percent in solar installations for the first quarter on Wednesday, the latest sign of a reversal in fortunes for the once high-flying residential solar industry.
Michael J. Coren for Quartz: As the shadow of the moon passes over North America, the eclipse is expected to knock out about 70 megawatts a minute- two to three times faster than the typically daily drop, reports the California Independent System Operator.
California Hydrogen Fuel Company's Regulation A+ Crowdfunding Campaign Offers First Opportunity for Main Street Investors to Invest in Hydrogen Fuel Stations
Polysilicon price surge continued but at a slower rate this week. Although some major Chinese players are trying to raise the prices as domestic demand kept increasing, Chinese second and third tier players showed less intention in raising the prices as they had some inventory from April to digest. This implies that some suppliers think the prices have been close to the short term peak. Moreover, with the uncertainties of order visibility in June, most suppliers would take conservative strategies to sell their products rather more quantity than higher prices. Therefore, polysilicon inventory level from April slowed down the price surge amid the strong Chinese domestic demands.

Parker Showcases KleenVent line of Closed-Loop Cooling System Add-on Solution for 1.5MW Wind Turbines at AWEA
Designed for wind turbines using a water/glycol cooling sytem, the Parker KleenVent closed loop solution eliminates required maintenance and the related downtime previously required to restore cooling fluid mix levels. KleenVent effectively eliminates water evaporation in the legacy cooling system by containing the water vapor in a closed loop add-on design, and condensing it back into a liquid to maintain a constant water-glycol ratio maintenance to optimize the IGBT cooling systems efficiencies.
This grid-connected project of over 750 megawatts will deliver energy to the Northern Mexico region under a long-term contract. Scheduled to enter commercial operation by mid-2018, NEXTracker has shipped over 200 MW to the project site to date.
Mark Harrington for Newsday: Block Island on Monday will formally throw the switch on a first-time connection to the New England energy grid through a new cable to the mainland, and begin receiving power from the country's first five offshore wind turbines.
Amid strengthening Chinese domestic demand, overall polysilicon prices rise for the first time after experiencing a month of severe price reductions. In March, polysilicon prices in China had dropped more than 25% that caused many suppliers to suffer. However, as demand in China reviving in late-April, polysilicon suppliers soon react to increase the prices in order to compensate the loss in the previous month. While in overseas markets, polysilicon price stay still this week, as the demand recovery in overseas market is not as noticeable as in China. However, the downward trend is temporarily creased thanks to the aid of rising polysilicon prices in China. As the result, overall polysilicon prices rebound this week following the gain in polysilicon prices in China.
