EnergySage and NABCEP Release Findings of 2017 Solar Installer Survey; Report Shows Battery Demand is Surging, Trump's Tariff May Get Absorbed by Installers
Solar installation professionals report one in three solar shoppers are also interested in home energy storage, while two-thirds of installers plan to absorb some or all of the solar tariff's added cost
Joshua Rhodes for Forbes: Cheap energy storage got a steroid shot this week when FERC announced that it was going to let energy storage operate in the wholesale markets as both a buyer and a seller.
Anthony Deutsch for Reuters: An offshore seaweed farm in the North Sea will be turned into a large solar power farm that aims to pipe energy to the Dutch mainland in roughly three years.
The Solar Foundation: The Solar Foundation's annual National Solar Jobs Census is a comprehensive report on employment trends within the U.S. solar industry, nationwide and state by state. The latest Solar Jobs Census includes data for 2017.
The U.S. wind power industry closed 2017 strong, delivering 7,017 megawatts (MW) of new wind power capacity representing $11 billion in new private investment, according to the U.S. Wind Industry Fourth Quarter 2017 Market Report, released today. Twenty-nine new wind farms t
