Technology that streamlines the deployment of residential solar + energy storage without compromise of performance or cost
Bobby Magill, Grist: Americas first offshore wind farm just helped to shut down a small diesel-fired electric power plant on Block Island, Rhode Island.
Leonard Hyman & William Tilles for OilPrice.com: By 2030, solar-plus-storage could threaten the economic relevance of their distribution grids by making less necessary the connection with the local electric utility.
Christoph Steitz for Reuters: Europe's embattled solar power industry has been dealt a fresh blow, with cut-price competition from China driving Germany's SolarWorld into insolvency.
Robert Ferris for CNBC: Tesla said the first two styles of its solar roof will be priced at about $21.85 per square foot. That price is slightly lower than the $24.50 per square foot that Consumer Reports had expected.
Tom Randall for Bloomberg: Elon Musk says orders will begin today. Pricing details have yet to be revealed.
Megan Treacy for TreeHugger: The long distance from shore has the benefit of being beyond the horizon so there is no visible evidence of it from shore but it also carries the benefit of harnessing the stronger winds in that area.
Allison Mills for Phys.org: Distributed microgrid tech can secure the electrical grids at military bases to reduce the impact of cyberattacks, physical attacks from terrorists and natural disasters.
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.
Anmar Frangoul for CNBC: Released on Tuesday, the GWEC's Global Wind Report: Annual Market Update forecasts nearly 60 GW of wind installations this year, with cumulative installed capacity seen reaching more than 800 GW by the end of 2021.
Tom Randall for Bloomberg: Wind and solar are about to become unstoppable, natural gas and oil production are approaching their peak, and electric cars and batteries for the grid are waiting to take over. This is the world Donald Trump inherited as U.S. president. And yet his energy plan is to cut regulations to resuscitate the one sector thats never coming back: coal.
Clean energy actions saving companies $3.7 billion a year, cutting annual carbon pollution equivalent to 45 coal-fired power plants
Jess Shankleman , Brian Parkin , and Anna Hirtenstein for Bloomberg: Offshore wind turbines are about to become higher than the Eiffel Tower, allowing the industry to supply subsidy-free clean power to the grid on a massive scale for the first time.
American wind power added jobs over 9 times faster than the overall economy amid robust growth for another year, according to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), which released its 2016 U.S. Wind Industry Annual Market Report today at the Minnesota State Capitol.

Solar & Wind - Featured Product
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.
