AWEA applauds California's determination to further cut carbon pollution

“As California continues its international leadership on one of the greatest challenges of our time, the American Wind Energy Association applauds Gov. Brown and Sen. De Leon for taking this bold and necessary step to cut carbon pollution."

SACRAMENTO, CA - Californias decision today to cut its greenhouse gas emissions further, to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, won praise from the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) as "a bold and necessary step."


Tom Darin, AWEAs Western State Policy Senior Director, cited California Gov. Jerry Brown and Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leons leadership on the states decision:

"As California continues its international leadership on one of the greatest challenges of our time, the American Wind Energy Association applauds Gov. Brown and Sen. De Leon for taking this bold and necessary step to cut carbon pollution.

"The wind industry looks forward to working with the states administration and legislature to deploy more wind power as a critical part of a clean technology portfolio that can help meet this goal affordably. Working together and across multiple technologies, we can produce reliable and cost-effective clean energy, attract billions in economic investment, and create thousands of jobs throughout California."

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
